As promised, I am doing a show and tell
of the goodies that made it home with me.
I have been wanting an old olive basket since I
first saw them awhile ago.
I even had my friend Laura@52 flea
looking for me, since she visits fleamarkets more than I do.
She had seen them while in Florida, but did not get to buy
one for me.
I was soooo happy to see them at Lillian August,
the store we first visited.
The price, with their sale, was even better.
Hooray for me!!!!!
I have it in the entrance foyer-breakfast room
where it holds some of my favorite magazines.
Loved this chair at Lillian August, and it moves between the
outside and our family room.
I have wanted this book ever since it came out.
I love his clean decorating style,
and the wonderful teddies he makes.
If you gals own this book, you know what I mean.
His bears are absolutely charming......
....and so is his home.
I got both chair, book and all the other things I had to have on sale.
The hanging "chandelier" came from Terrain.
I think it was meant to be just a wire cloche.
Since I also bought the glass jars....
(well, you know from my last post, the trouble I got into)....
the two things just went together.
The little glasses became the clappers.
I keep them filled with cut flowers and herbs.
Sometimes I put a candle in the top....
....or a fern.
It looks to me like it is supposed to hold a plant.
Anyway, I like the look over the little
round table where hubby and I eat most of our meals
in the mild seasons.
More goodies from Lillian August.
The ribbons will adorn my dolls......
And of course I have been playing with the jars.
The contents keep changing.
At Terrain I bought some unusual little ferns and plants.
In the fall I will make a terrarium.
That store inspired me so much!
My new doll is starting an Americana series,
(after all, we are in an election year)
and which I will post for sale soon.
So, my doll and I wish you all a happy and safe
I am happy to be a citizen of this country,
proud of the freedom to live as we wish,
to express our thoughts freely.
I want to thank everyone in the Armed Forces
for keeping us all safe.
My gratitude goes out to them.
To everyone out there,
Happy 4 TH of July.
Happy Birthday America!
