Painted this the other day.  I used to love making art when I was younger and this was the first thing I’ve done in years.  Simple.  Bright Colors.




Glass Eggs & Chicken Wire

I thought this was a pretty grouping and made a nice picture:

chicken wire

In my opinion, you just can’t go wrong decorating with chicken wire.  Also, glass eggs fascinate me.  Is that what they’re called, glass eggs?

My Love for Cherries

So in my last post I wrote about how much stuff I have and need to get rid of and today I will showcase a little bit of my stuff that I plan to keep!

When I went off to college, my Mom and I had a great time decorating my apartment.  My obsession for the kitchen was cherries and teapots.  So, all these years later (I’m really not that old), I have some cherries and I have some teapots and of course I have some cherry teapots.  This is probably one of the biggest cherry pieces I have:

I still love my Mary Engelbreit cookie jar.  It’s a keeper!

My favorite cherry piece though just might be this:

cherry light off

cherry light on

Just beautiful.  I’m so thankful it’s survived intact all these years.  Again, I’m really not that old.

My favorites…

Sandy's Apple1

This apple was painted by my Mom in 1979.

I love it in my kitchen!

My favorites…

Cherries present

Jessie Steele salt & pepper shakers.

Even the box they came in is cute!

Is it Just Me?

I just love looking through Joss and Main’s website.

7 out of 10 times I will find something I really, really, really want.

2 out of 10 times I will buy something.

I kinda have to buy something at least once a month so I can keep my free shipping credits rolling.  Good excuse, huh?

Today, I’d really like this:

Willa Wall Rack

Or this:

Dalia Table Lamp II in Blue (Set of 2)

Decisions, decisions.

The Vintage Stand

Why did she make things? Well ... she enjoyed it of course.
