I had a bunch of fresh flowers that I put in a pot outside to decorate the balcony. This is how they looked after the water evaporated and the flowers dried in the sun. Aren't they pretty?
I have a friend who has display cabinets full of wonderful vintage & antique items all over her house. It is so much fun looking into each one of them. On my last visit she gave me a little cabinet. I decided to paint it black & line it with pretty paper, and keep my little perfume bottle collection in it. I am so thankful for my friend Ann and her kindness! I believe we are kindred spirits.
Can you believe this apron?! I think it is so pretty! I don't buy or make many aprons anymore, but I jumped at this one. All the work that went into it! I might actually wear it, but no, not while I'm cooking. Can you imagine getting spaghetti sauce down the front of it? It would be cute to wear at a vintage fair!
When we first built our house, my craft room and the laundry room shared a space. I outgrew the craft space and took over a guest room. To be honest, I've almost outgrown that space! I now have all my Etsy stuff in the laundry room. It's not perfect but it will work for the time being. Any way, this morning I was putting stuff away and I decided to take a picture of one little corner. I keep most of my vintage linens in the cupboards, but always leave one set of doors open so I can enjoy my pretty linens. I have a vintage laundry bag that I love, and I set my little clothespin bag that I just made with it.
I'm an art teacher and junk lover! I like to hunt for and repurpose treasures from flea markets, old barns, yard sales and funky shops.
