Old Chippy White Window

I am joining Faded Charm's White Wednesday.
I am sharing one of my old chippy white windows. I just have this one hanging in my hall. I added an old crystal door knob to hang a wreath on.

I have old windows all over my house. I just love the fact you can do what ever you want with them. Some have words on them , some are used for doors and others are used for frames.

I leave them just as they are most of the time with the exception of one that I painted black.

I hope you all have a Happy White Wednesday!

Pink Saturday

I am linking up with Beverly at How Sweet the Sound for Pink Saturday.
It is dreary outside, we had a good rain last night and it is just a good day to sit around and sip hot tea from my favorite teacup. I love looking at all my old magazines, the pages are so worn I have looked at them so much. I never get tired of it.

I am sharing my favorite teacup, and sweet little spoon.

I love the little flowers inside the cup.

Hope you all have a Happy Pink Saturday.

In The Garden

I am joining Fishtail Cottage for Cottage Flora Thursday.

I remember when we would go to my grandmother's house, she always had a garden full of vegetables and fruit. It was always fun to go out and pick the peaches and eat them right off the tree. Now that we have a grandson and one on the way I hope they can have fun memories of coming to the country.

Baby tomatoes

Blackberries planted in our garden. I can't wait for a blackberry cobbler.

A baby peach on our new peach tree.

Baby figs on our new little fig tree.

On any day you can find me out in our garden. I love just watching the vegetables grow. That is a sign I am getting older, just being happy with simple things.

I got this fun cherry poster in Seattle, Washington. There is a story behind it. Long story short it has a new home. It was hanging up in Pike's market at a little booth.

We were at Pike's Public Market. If you are ever in Seattle this is a fun place to hang out. This is where they toss the fish. They have a huge seafood market here.

I was proud of my new purchase.

We were walking around the market and I saw this poster, I just thought I had to have it. I had to do lots of begging to get them to sale it to me. We also got fresh cherries from them . I wish I had some now.

White Wednesday

I am joining Faded Charm's White Wednesday.
My sweet friend made me this vintage purse.

She used a crochet lace doily and other types of lace.

I wonder who made them? It looks like lots of work goes into making them.

She put vintage buttons on it, she is so creative.

It is the perfect Canton purse.

She gave it to me for nurse's day last week. I am a school nurse for a small rural school . I am so blessed to work with a great group of people.

Happy White Wednesday.

Happy Mother's Day

I want to wish all the mother's a very Happy Mother's Day. This is my mom. She is a fun loving person and loves to travel. She has been a huge inspiration in my life. I am so thankful she raised me with Christian values. I want her to know how special she is to me.

Happy Mother's Day

Pink Saturday

I am linking up with Beverly at How Sweet The Sound for Pink Saturday
Look what came in the mail. I love beautiful flowers. My two guys sent me these beautiful tulips for Mother's day. I have a great husband and son living at home. They spoil me. I am so blessed. I have a daughter(soon to be mother) and son-in-law, and son and daughter-in-law and precious grandson in Houston. I have a wonderful mom and had a great mother-in-law. I am so thankful.

I recently got this new pink Misty Rose bedspread at Target, it is part of their Shabby Chic Collection. I also had one before this which was more of a patch work look. I really like this one because of the soft pink color and the roses.

I have them sitting on my bed, and they look so pretty.

I would love to come home everyday and have fresh flowers sitting on my bed. I might not appreciate them as much if I did.

Hope you all have a happy Pink Saturday and Mother's Day.

White Wednesday

I am linking up with Faded Charm's White Wednesday. I had been looking for a china cabinet or hutch for months on Craig's list. To say I had been looking for a year would not be an execration. I knew what I was looking for and the price I would be willing to pay when I stumbled upon this. I had to pay $50.00. I found it in Houston less than 5 miles from my Son's house. How is that for luck?

I wish I had a before picture of it. It was a deep brown color and no glass in the doors. The imperfections are what I love about it.

I have not replaced the glass doors. I like it with the lace hanging over the doors.

It is full of things I love, teapots, my red transferware and some silver.
