are SO creative. I met a blogger last week through her Etsy shop. I saw a tassel she made for another blogger and I immediately clicked over to her shop and placed an order. Rosie is just as sweet and delightful as the creations she makes. Her place is called Rosie's Whimsy. Rosie, the package came today (she shipped so fast). I sat right down on the front porch and opened it. I was thrilled. I love how you braided the hanger with the twine incorporated in it. And your presentation is fabulous. Thank You! And thank you for the extra goodie too. :) I hope you all will go visit Rosie's blog and shop and see her cute things. I wanted a tassel to hang from the key in the keyhole of my antique secretary. You might be able to see the waviness in the old glass in the photo. And if you look closely you can see the wing chair in the reflection of the glass. The wing chair is red floral with black and white check trim. That's why I got the black and white tassel....to match the chairs. And the sweet tassel adds that special whimsy to the room.
A couple of post earlier I whined about all the pollen. Thankfully it's almost all gone and Friday I decided it was time to tackle the job of cleaning off the three season sleeping porch. That's a job and a half....I tell you. We are on well water out here and the water pressure is not the greatest in the world.....so it takes forever to get the place washed down. First I have to haul all the furniture off the porch and wash down all the cushions.
After washing down everything and cleaning the walls and floors I dashed here to buy some ferns. It's our local feed and seed and equine center and I think everybody in the county was there on Friday.
I was on a mission to only get the porch ferns but I got distracted by the roses. Aren't they beautiful?
But I was good.....stuck to my guns....and only got the ferns. Besides it was on the calendar to go with my friend Cindy to buy plants and flowers and veggies on Monday. :) We plan on making a day of it.
By the time I got back home all the cushions had dried so it was time to haul everything back in on the porch. The two rocking chairs are my favorite place to sit on a nice day, have a cold drink and read one of my decorating magazines. It felt so good to get this job done. Whew! Is there a kindlier place than a porch?
I am excited to announce the latest pretties coming to the boutique. They will be listed on "The Glow Within" page at theVintageNest. These custom OOAK light switch covers are created using renditions of vintage Victorian themes along with vintage millinery and jewelry. Hopefully within two weeks they will be added. I keep forgetting to tell you if there is anything you may be interested in in the boutique I give a 10% discount to my blogging friends. Enjoy your day. xo Lynn
