..................about this and that.
A new lady is hanging out on my dresser and currently adorned with two beautiful silk rose necklaces made by my talented friend Vanessa. Go here and see how she is currently doing a lovely shabby chic style makeover in her home, and do congratulate her on becoming a US citizen this week! This bust may eventually be for sale in my booth at SuzAnna's Antiques - she's classic and lovely.
Mirror, mirror on the wall................
..........my latest mirror acquisition..........you too buy lots of mirrors, don't you? They really help enlarge and light a room, especially if reflecting something bright. This one is across from another over the sofa. It's definitely old and quite imperfect with bits of trim missing, but it's lovely with the foxed glass.
Lastly, sharing the beauty of red-leaved plants. If you haven't added some of these Coral Bells (Heuchera) to your garden you're missing out! This one I've just popped into a rusted classic urn on the porch steps........a great change from always thinking green plants and shrubs. Yes, another mirror here on the porch!
I'm busy picking out and packing up for my trip across the pond next week. Choosing what to take is always a chore for me when preparing to travel. It could be chilly and damp among the hills and watery landscape of the Lake District up north, then warm and sunny down south at the shore in Devon..........but no matter, only one suitcase for two weeks, so layering is the name of the game.
