Blue vases, Forsythia and Lemons

A-DELIGHTSOME-LIFE-FORSYTHIA-BLUE-VASES-DEMIJOHN-7

I had a wonderful full day shopping last week. Living in the country, and with my schedule - I combine errands because most things are at least 30 minutes away. This is both good and bad. This is one part of country living that I like. The slower pace, the quiet - save for the chorus of birds every day. As well as making shopping day an … [Read more...]

When I saw this bed...it was love at first sight. She was at an Estate sale in a room filled with collected ephemera. The collection of someone's life.

Dearest's New/Old Love As if  by magic, stalks appear mid-summer in my garden. These stalks are topped with deep pink buds that begin to separate and as they open, their color changes to a lovely, translucent pink.

Last week as I was grocery shopping I stopped by my favorite Goodwill and the Habitat for Humanity store. I was really in a hurry so I scurried through both and nearly missed these two sweet items in the Habitat store. I overheard one of the volunteers talking about a separate scale and noting that one had just arrived today. I saw the scale and … [Read more...]
