................these finds at the Gibson Mill Depot in the lovely town of Concord, NC. Strolling main street we found the lunchtime sandwiches at Ellie's Cafe delicious, and the historic Victorian style homes beautiful.
I wasn't kidding when I mentioned bringing home a rusty old horseshoe. I thought I could use it in the gazebo. When sitting there with a stack of favorite magazines I sometimes need a paper weight when breezes blow through... this will do the job well! Right now the gazebo, like the entire area, is smothered in pollen, blowing about in choking clouds. Unable to sit out there, I pray for some rain to settle the dust so I can enjoy my little spot of garden heaven.
French blue or gray............you know I can't resist when I find something already painted these simple French country colors. They're a pair and I've split them up, this one in the corner of the dining room, the other in the bedroom. Pretty, tall iron tables, I really love their beautiful finish.
Vanessa, with her young and creative eye, always spies things I love............she knew I was looking for more linen feedsacks and found two with pale blue stripes for me. These are domestic, not as rustic and textured as old European ones, they will however be fine for pillow covers, perhaps for the gazebo chairs....and were a good price.
