Spring Hat

I was thinking of looking for a new yard hat for this spring and summer and wondered how this lamp shade would work LOL


It looks great on my glass ladies head in the studio, I even added a black veil under the shade for her to look her best 1960's stylish way.




I am busy putting away a stack of magazines I love and want to keep and changing out things setting around the house..She is sitting on one of my bookcases where I put special magazines.Have a good week end I plan to also.


Linky parties for today

Tea Cup Exchange





I received my box from my exchange partner for the tea cup exchange on Stephanie's Blog  and  I am thrilled with what all my partner Linda sent me. Check out her blog.
This is such a fulfilling thing to do, I love surprises and this was.


                                                           
Look how sweet she wrapped all my goodies


 Love these little napkins especially since they have the dark blue trim
                                                             
                                                                    

Oh how I wanted to eat this entire box of Godiva Biscuits. I did enjoy the honey spoon in my cup of hot tea. These spoons are wonderful if you have never had any, get some !
                                                       

Then look at this bag of vintage lace behind the honey spoons !! fabulous
                                              
So Nice







Then I just had to have a hot cup of tea in my new beautiful calico cup,since I'm trying very hard not to enjoy sweets I didn't have a fresh scone or sweet bread with my hot tea. I did enjoy the honey spoons she sent me however. Thank you so much Linda for being my surprise partner and thanks to Stephanie for doing this for us all to enjoy.

.

Isn't this all wonderful?

Things I like

I'm home from work and yard man is here mowing and the sun is out so it's a good day. All my hydrangeas are coming up and so is my peonies.My yard still looks very bare. I need some flowers blooming for sure. Seems like all the nurseries and Lowes are getting lots bedding plants in. I'm not planting till I get back from a trip.

                                                        


I was going through lots of my buttons and I really like this old lamp part and the vintage looking tag I bought from a shop closing up near Kansas City Mo. I took them out in the sun for a picture of them. My house is dark in the afternoon due to large trees around my house and the west side neighbor's  house hides my house from the late afternoon sun . My next house will be lots windows facing east to west not north ans south

St Louis Tea Room

Hello I don't have the pictures of my visit to Mary Ann's Tea Room in St Louis however sweet Bernideen's Tea Time  does on her blog. It was such a wonderful place to have lunch. It use to be an old greenhouse where we set for lunch Bernideen tells all this on her blog

I want to show some Bunnies I like since it's close to easter. I was walking downtown on my break and seen this sweet Bunny in the window of my favorite store ( Tululahs ) .I think it's a Bethany Lowe or Nicole Sayre It's about 2 feet tall Love it.
                                                                      

Then here is a couple little cards I have placed in a wire flower frog on one of my shelves in my  studio of fun things


It's still raining here, we are about to mold it's been raining so much after our dry winter with no snow or rain. It's even to wet to mow the yard which really needs it already

Back in 2013


Just ran across a post I did  in 2013 where I was wondering why ladies quit blogging with no explanations. I'm having hot tea and doing this post before I start another yard cleaning day outside

http://curtainsinmytree.blogspot.com/2013/10/animals.html


I am getting lots done,yard work most of yesterday and had help with little grandsons ages 6 and 9.




I had a chandelier outside hanging in a tree over the patio and took it down since all the crystals was blown off ,guess the birds carried them off?
