Not much going on here, just wanted to share a couple of things. Above is a hatbox that you would think is an old one but it is new or at least the box is. The wallpaper is from the 1940's. I made the box with a kit I purchased literally YEARS ago. I have many beautiful vintage wallpapers in my stash, and this one was so pretty, I decided I needed to make another hatbox to go with the ones I am using for storage in my closet of dreams. Speaking of that, I found out that the organization process is taking far longer than I anticipated. Guess I should have figured as much! Maybe next month I'll be sharing the finished project. Sigh...
The arrival of the official first day of spring makes me see spring everywhere. Even my little silk flowers are all apple blossomy looking.
Now, I do live in Colorado, so it is going to be a while before we have any remarkable flowers to share, but I did find these photos from a previous spring, showing what I look forward to every year. Lily of the Valley for one.
And the beautiful Bleeding Heart is always a favorite that I look forward to each year.
I'm still enjoying my flowers from 10 days ago. Can you believe they still look this pretty? Even though they are drooping a bit, they are still luscious. Sometimes you get lucky...
Have you seen the magazine Cottage? Their spring edition has just come out. It is published by Hoffman Media, same folks who crank out Victoria, Paula Deen, and Southern Lady.
I just got my copy today at WalMart. I can't wait to peruse each page as it looks like a good one. It is particularly good to me as one of my dear friends is featured in it. Sharon is one of the most talented ladies around and this shows her beautiful little garden getaway (next time, I hope they show the inside-it is French and FAB-U-LOUS) in her backyard. It started out as a Tough Shed. Can you believe it? The gal's definitely got vision. I'm so happy for her.
Don't forget you still have time to enter my Ram Sign giveaway.
Just leave a comment on the previous post for a chance to win one of these awesome European house number signs. Sorry about the total random photos and my rambling. I am a little out of sorts due to a job that has now fallen into my lap because of another person's incompetence. Oh well, this too, shall pass. Keep a good thought (or two) for me this next week or two as I embark on a task that I'm not sure I am really up to, but I have to do it, so damn the torpedoes and full speed ahead.
Until next time,
