Self Entertaining

I have been asked to see a picture of my new Kitty Cat her name is Paris and she is a calico I got at the local humane society.

She is very shy when someone comes over, she will run and hide.  My other cat did that and it took a long time for him to get use to visitors.

I have been entertaining myself in the studio when I go downstairs to do laundry and want to make sure I get something out of washer soon as it finishes washing so I started a scrap book of things I love and pages I have kept out of magazines for years. I have about 2-3 more pages and it will be complete.

I love blue white toile material also blue white dishes so this page is my dream bedroom 

It has been raining cats and dogs if you know what I mean, we have had several flash floods in my area the dehumidifier is on round the clock 

one more , I know you have all probably made a scrap book of some kind anyway you can see my messy work table .

I was going to visit a friend today and because of low flooding areas I stayed home

Thanks for all your comments

Resale Shopping and New Napkins

 Hello you'all

Couple years ago I guess I purchased these cute Bunny Easter napkins, when I go out shopping and find cute ones  or pretty blue white flower ones I definitely buy then to use sometime or another. Anyway These caught my eye, I just noticed this morning they have a recipe inside, never seen a recipe inside a napkin.

Hot Cross Buns

Now have you bought napkins with a recipe inside  ?


Ok so much for napkins, I went to my favorite resale shop this morning and found this ironstone cheese dish . They are so expensive on the etsy shops that sale ironstone. I did not intend to start another collection especially black and white but guess I have since I did buy a round ironstone BUTTER dish off etsy shop 

It was $8 and the BUTTER was maybe $80 on sale, Then I really like these colorful asparagus dishes and this one  at same resale shop was $4 so I grabbed it t help clutter up my dish cabinets LOL 

I have been busy all week enjoying spring and my tea party group got together for a wonderful lunch at one of the gals lovely home. It was so nice.

This week I hope to work in my yard a little I have few things to plant. Keep in touch and let me know if your friends have been getting back together where you live. We are in central Missouri

Little Paint Project

I have wanted to see what these fancy little cute Frenchie style drawers handles would look like painted a soft gold.
I bought this little low chest at a resale shop possibly 13 years ago and it was already painted my favorite color, a blue.  

This is what they look like now and I'm satisfied with the color. Originally I wanted a bright gold color.

This is what the chest looks like, excuse the plates on the floor under it (smiling) . I did get all the boxes out from under it. This is my office area and it's usually looks very lived in, which now in my later years doesn't bother me.

I have this chest and another tall chest full of note cards and stationary which I love, I am always thrilled when a friend gives me a cute box of note cards, one friend for my last November birthday gave me a very cute box of French note cards, ones with little Marie Antionette faces on them.

The sun was finally out today and it was so energizing to me. I also run over to my favorite resale shop.
yes I found me a few little treasures.
Well which paint color do you like best on the handles?

Resale Shopping


Silver Plated Teapot & Tray

I just love to go to a good resale shop and there is only one great one here in my little city.
I just stop in once in a while.
I have always loved silver and silver plated items
mostly I like large trays 

I couldn't pass up this goose neck teapot for $8. I will just set it on this gorgeous silver plated tray. The tray has stamp Sheffield England on bottom I gave $25 for it.I have always liked silver.

Also since I haven't blogged in a while I can't seem to maneuver around. things have changed. So when you see an error just read on.

I have little bit snow today only suppose to be up to 3 inches, so I'm staying in and hope to get some enthusiasm to make a couple things in the studio while waiting on laundry to finish

Need some Enthusiasm

 Hi again

I'm slowly getting to rearrange things around my house thinking that will inspire me to keep things picked up after myself.

Since all this staying at home I just let it go, if you know what I mean? I never have been the prefect house cleaner.

I have two of the long boxes you see setting on my black chest which sets right inside of my front door. Other one is over my desk where my computer is  and full of old family pictures. I had my large 1880's  crystal candelabras setting here previously.

Now in this room is where I work on my etsy shop and I have boxes setting under my chests and settees so I don't have to go downstairs to look for items as I sell them.

Most people wouldn't dare show their messes, Am I right? This is my favorite room in my house.

Well leaving now to look at other blogs.

Keep in touch

2021 ?

 Well I'm going to try and have time to blog again and read all yours blogs again this year.

I did go through boxes and boxes of family pictures and mail them out to several family members who I thought would want the pictures, while home alone LOL in 2020

I took 3 trunk loads of clothing to a donation center and have another load to take. Now if I can just part with some sets and odd dishes my house will be little less packed? however a gal loves her dishes? right? 

Also I feel I have to many pieces of furniture in my house( just sharing my own thoughts)

My cat died in September and I'm trying to decide on another cat or a small lap dog? I would like both.

I want a calico cat or a King Charles Spaniel or both I think? 

Well i'm putting away a few things today and still throwing items in a box to haul away so must carryon. I just wanted to say hi and see if I still remember how to do a blog.

Sincerely Janice
