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!

The Inconsolable Print

This print, titled The Inconsolable, is by Diana Thorne.  It is sold by Ballard Designs.

I love this print so much.

I’ve had my eye on this print for some time now.  It speaks to me.
