I did get before pictures of a table that matches my vintage lawn furniture( 1978 actually).
There is always another paint day if not ,it doesn't really matter then




I have several sea shells I have collected from coast to coast outside setting around my patio
This one is an abalone shells I added vintage earrings to and I found some matching beads

Store Window

I was walking uptown while on my lunch break today and looked into Allen's Florist window 's which always have such great decorating items' I just had to go in and look around . I think this dresser looks so cute the way they have it arranged. Don't you ?



And I loved these bottle covered with chicken wire, I have some great vintage bottle however don't think I could get the chicken wire wrapped around them smoothly.




I'm looking forward to this weekend I am hoping if it's not really windy like it has been I'm painting all my iron patio furniture, with a brush and a gallon of white paint I have had forever, I will shake it up really good since it has been sitting for a while, like 2 years

Garden Faces

I have a small little flower bed out back of my house and few flowers in my front yard with  several little faces in both areas.
Lots of blog gals are showing the most beautiful flowers already and my seeds are just up about 2-3 inches now.
I have several big elephant ears planted again this year, last year they were huge and I loved them.
This little angel gets moved around, she is all chippy and sweet and have had her several years now



My smallest dancing girls flower pot has a begonia in it this year, which I like to show off I just love these flower pots, I have let them go chippy chic this year instead of painting all white

My large dancing girls planter full of geraniums behind a make do fence in my flower bed

These are blooming out front of my house and about 3 years ago a neighbor gave me 3 little looked like sticks and they have turned into these beautiful large white blooms


My last little angel who fell off my wood fence and broke and I just couldn't throw her away. I live in an older house and my concrete flower bed has cracks and broken bricks and I just try to disguise it all with pretty flowers in the summer



A friend gave me an entire flat of small plants she had started in her basement last winter and I have them all planted in this heat however a nice rain sure did help night before last, can't wait to see them all blooming
Have a nice cool weekend in your nice air conditioned house, I finally got mine fixed

Blue Glass

As I was home waiting on the air condtion men I was packing dishes for the whatever whenever yard sale I'm having. Some friends are coming over digging through the boxes of goodies before the sale.
I keep finding things I have kept for years and ready to let go. Like lots of glass items.



Like all this blue glass I had setting in my kitchen windows. I'm listing these in my etsy shop
I also removed lots things off my kitchen counters. Can you believe I had 4 wood cutting boards? yardsale.

I already gave away 4 windsor chairs and a catholic prayer kneeler, few little children's books, my neighbor has a new 4 month old granddaughter so I told her to keep the books at her house to read to her little granddaughter.

Well need to get on with things here. So glad I have air condition again it's suppose to be up in 100's heat index next few days maybe longer .

She Can Be Yours

I am home today waiting on my air conditioning man which has been an ordeal to get us both available at same time

While i'm home today I am boxing up things I no longer want and decided I don't want this painting any longer.




She is a repo painting and when I found her in St louis once she was happy to come home with me, now she is available to make someone else happy . The frame is 29 x 25 inches on canvas




The pictures itself is 23 1/2 x 19 1/2 approximately



the painting has a white spot /blemish on the dog you can see it below his eyes , looks like whoever painted it either skipped this spot or dropped a tiny bit white paint on the dog?
$50



I am still packing odd dishes in boxes



teapot tea cannister odd blue plates white wood cannister box etc sugar jar

Happy Birthday Norman 102

Tuesday  June 6th will be an old friend's 102nd birthday and I just ordered his special chocolate ganache cake that he loves, I tried to talk him into a white cake white icing, no way.

I go out to his assisted living apartment every Monday and spend most of the day with him. We go out to lunch and do some shopping for him if he needs something. This picture was taken last Monday at a local bar b que restaurant.



Can you imagine living to 102 years old? I'm sure if he knew what all was going on in the world he would be shocked. He just quit reading the local newspaper last year . He still likes watching Cardinal baseball, I call him during the week to tell him when a baseball game is on

Now I am looking for a wine bottle tree to put in my backyard around my one and only flower bed. I use to see these at local nurseries however not now that I want one. I have had lots blue wine bottles given to me and I have emptied a few also LOL This is one window full . Some of the bottles are water bottles.



The clutter on this table will hopefully soon be cleaned off. Still waiting on my air condition man to put in a new compressor for my central air. It's to get hot this weekend and I need my air conditioner.

yard sale still in the works

Once Again

Once again I am going to straighten up the studio and put things in drawers and into my next yard sale. I think I'm ready to pass some things on to others.
Last sale I rid myself of lots of dishes and then just gave boxes of dishes to a church donation center that didn't sale,



I love all my do dads however I'm going for a more straighten up room look. I have treasures and stuff just sitting everywhere as you will see in pictures.
These are little frames I added my rhinestones to. The little china lamp shade is sitting on a sterling shaker



Then this shelf is full of loose beads and old earrings in the larger jars,see the old ladies watches I have collected to make a bracelet and never have gotten one made. The picture of the old gentleman,well I had to decorate him up with rhinestones also and added an old cigar label to bottom of his picture,I liked the colors of the cigar band




Then I have jars and jars of buttons, the colored ones I didn't get a picture of, I'm ready to pass them on also, just getting them sorted and bagged is a big job. I have 2 ladies wanting to have a yard sale soon as possible

The little figures below will be in the yard sale along with table and chairs and lamps which I have way too many of



I keep special magazines and I have 3-4 little book shelves full and I have downsized these before .I don't even have pictures of all the boxes and drawers of paper for card making I am sorting through.
I have found out in previous yard sales of mine, people don't want my stuff they want new items for their homes,that is why I donated so much.
Another lady is bringing more vintage items she has had in her attic for years.

All this stuff will be cleaned out except for my candelabras  I still love them. I even have 2 books of ideas I have kept for years , ideas I never got made LOL



Does anyone need nylon lace? I have drawers and drawers of it also rick rack boxes of this also, seems like other ladies are cleaning out sewing stuff also, etsy is full of it

Oh well just thinking out loud. I am looking forward to this weekend I am going to cook some pork steaks and hamburgers on my grill and hopefully have the enthusiasm to get things cleaned  up in the studio
