I awoke yesterday morning feeling a little better than on the past several.......and although it was not brilliant sunshine streaming in the windows, there was more light and bright going on for a short while before the clouds rolled in.
Our somewhat dreary and depressing so-called Summer months in the southeast USA have been a disappointment this year.......at least for for those who love heat, humidity and scorching sun. For me, a dyed in the wool (love wearing wool!) Brit, who almost died in the heat when I first moved here, this weather is OK.
Sharing here my great last minute find at SuzAnna's Antiques on Sunday. Last minute because I was picking granddaughter Jasmin up from work there, and the shop was all locked up when I spied this pair of beautiful old, grey, metal with patina thrown in, planters in the outdoor area. Fortunately 'Mr. SuzAnna's Antiques', the wonderful Bruce, was leaving too and gave me a great price, thank you very much, so they came home with me.
Bob's question did not deter me -- the usual something like, "But what will you put in them?"
Right now nothing - I love them empty on the dining room table.
Have you read/used this amazing story/cookbook? I've had it several years and pulled it off the shelf a few days ago to read it again and search for some authentic French recipes. Vincent's last 70 paintings were done in 70 days in room number 5 of the Auberge Ravoux. Sadly, due to progressive mental illness, it is said that Vincent committed suicide in the same room.
What in the world are these you are thinking. Apparently two charming little bunny rabbit cages - discovered at The Depot in Concord, NC a couple of weeks ago. Guess they have patina too, or should we just say rust! Cute locks though and spotlessly clean thankfully. They are going on the floor as they're perfect to hold file folders containing all my stuff.......such as gardening, decorating, projects planned, pages torn from magazines, travel memorabilia, computer notes etc.
Have you been treasure hunting lately?
Show and tell time...........we really want
to see what you discovered!
