Here I'm sharing my new oval display/collection dome,
the one on the right. Seeing this at SuzAnna's Antiques
a couple of weeks ago, I have tell you I was thrilled
to bits. I'll look for one more, probably a short one,
to make a threesome for the display……two lamps are OK
but three domes will look better.
Right now I'm displaying some of my Spring/Easter bunnies
in the new dome - I like having the extra width being
oval allows to tuck the mama and a baby in inside, the
other little one has to be happy outside!
Note I still haven't painted the sideboard dark blue as I planned………will I ever get around to that? Maybe, but with all the Spring things going on right now it won't be this week, or next! I'm still trying to get everything back together after the upstairs painting, carpet installation upheaval, reconfiguring the office, and starting Spring Cleaning. Yesterday, Bob cleaned out the fireplace as we'll no longer be lighting fires now it's warm. Spending the morning lolling on the sofa with granddaughter - on Spring Break - watching the second half of Dr. Zhivago, probably my favorite movie ever (we started the night before but it's so long), I decided to strip all the slipcovers off the living room furniture. Laundering the smaller pieces, it was like a crazy washerwoman central for the remainder of the day. Today I take the too large for my washing machine sofa cover to a laundromat with large load capacity commercial washer and dryer.
Speaking of which……laundromats are not my usual or favorite venues, I always feel a bit out of place and nervous walking in. A man was shot and killed in one just a few nights ago in a nearby town………this makes me want to go early, in daylight, and the one I use does have a full-time attendant which makes me feel a bit safer.
They looked a bit hungry so I've added my vintage
lettuce seed envelopes. I need to do a couple more
Easter vignettes, dining room table etc., and shop
for some Easter eggs.
After that it will be 'into the woods', well actually
just the garden! Wow, stuff is popping out, growing up,
turning green so fast now. With full days of sun
and very warm temperatures reaching into the 80's
this week, there's a lot of hard, back breaking
garden work ahead……but it will look so much better
after the long brown Winter.
Thanks for all the comments on the last post, I so enjoyed
hearing about your personal scrapbooking histories. I'll pick
names for the postcard winners tomorrow. Leave a comment
there if you haven't done so yet and would enjoy a Devon
postcard in your mailbox.
