TA DA! One of the cutest things I saw at Christmas time last year was this Book Card Holder that Brenda at Just a bed of Roses made. I finally got it done. The beautiful Rose ribbon and the died binding came from, Just a bed of Roses and the beautiful broach came from Roberts Craft. I am really using it to hold all the cards I've received from blogger friends.
Ok, I've been visiting some blog friends today and it sounds like everyone is so ready for spring. I can't stand the winter anymore - so - I'm not waiting any longer. It is now spring! I did some simple Easter decorating today and brought pastel colors in. I feel like I need to have a party now. I have some glass jars that I like to change with the seasons. The goodies are for all of my grand children. The egg wreath on the door is to let people know that I've had it with winter and it is now spring. Come to my house in a couple of weeks and we'll have southern fried chicken, potatoe salad, devil eggs, hard boiled and colored Easter eggs, and home made coconut cake.
Our new green and white shop. Beautiful green bottles. Our children on the green grass at the orphanage in Ecuador. My green accessories in my sewing room. And last, but not least, this very awesome old green desk at the shop. Oh I almost forget, St Patrick's Day goodies for the shop.
What do you think of my new shelf, it's in my sewing room? Talk about a great find. I've put some milk glass and some tiny glass salt and pepper shakers in it so far. I will be looking for some, "out of this world" treasures. I'll really be checking all of you talented bloggers out, hoping to find some cool things.
It felt good to be back, and I appreciate the sweet comments I received, they brighten my day. I put their names in a dish and my little grandson Owey drew a name out. It is: KAY C, from, "butter'sbunch.blogspot.com
KAY C WILL YOU PLEASE E-MAIL ME WITH YOUR ADDRESS, and I'll get your prize sent to you.
I just haven't been as happy since I closed out of White Wednesday with Faded Charm. - SO - I'm back! Now I'm happy again!
My first picture is, of course, my favorite thing to collect, milk glass. This is a shelf display at the shop. I found a cool white wire shelf to hang on the wall of my sewing room. Some ruff looking white frames. A desk/vanity and a mirror for my grandma's room.
I AM SO HAPPY TO BE BACK WITH KAREN AT FADED CHARM AND HER WHITE WEDNESDAY. I DO BELIEVE THAT I AM GOING TO HAVE A DRAWING AT THE END OF THE DAY WITH THOSE THAT VISIT ME. I'M NOT SURE WHICH PIECE, BUT THE PRIZE WILL BE, "MILK GLASS".
I just came back from visiting Denise over at Aunt Elsie's Trinket's and Treasure's at Gardner Village. The shop will no longer be in the little red house on Redwood road and Everybody that loves that little house will be so sad. But everybody that loved the Village White shop at Gardner Village will be happy because that is where we've moved. We don't know what happened to the Village White shoppe but we are sure going to love the space. Who wouldn't love having more square footage, a huge front porch, a pond with real geese out your front door, a bridge and a candy shop to the right of us and Archabalds to the left of us. Oh, and a lot more people traffic.
We are waiting for West Jordan City to come and inspect. After that happens we will be open for business.
I will post the opening here on this blog and also on email@example.com.
You might remember that I said that I had an extra bedroom that I'm re-doing in all Vintage. I'm calling the room, "Grandma's Room" because I have several things of my grandmothers that will be in there.
I want to end up with an awesome vintage room. I'm almost sure that I can't accomplish that by myself.
You can see the above pictures of the room. Thing will get refinished and painted. The walls are a soft Tan with white trim and doors, they will stay the same. I am in the process of choosing different whites. The accent colors are, lime green and pink.
So far, their is a twin head board and foot board; a table/vanity; a wall mirror; a chair, a small corner shelf, a small table mirror, a lime green quilt (new), a hand crocheted ecru spread, grandma's jewelry box - aprons - old picture of her and a shadow box with her special things in it, and a new tea set that's lime green, white and pink. Allot of this stuff came from Aunt Elsie's antic shop.
I am a 62 year young mother of 5 children, grandmother of 9 grandchildren and wife and friend to my John for 42 years. I love where I've been and I love where I'm going. I don't know any strangers because your all my friends. I have been touched by many angles in my life and I am grateful to be among so many wonderful people through blogging.
From My Heart to Yours
