**ChiPPy!-SHaBBy!** Thinking Spring...

I know it's way tooooo early to put out "Flowering" items other than "bulbs" in my vignettes ~ but after getting about 8 inches of SNOW yesterday - the following pics are a "pick-me-up"... "THINK SpRiNg"...

ViNtaGe Garden...
Funky "50's" pink/white garden flowers...
Green Metal Sap Bucket...
ViNtaGe Garden Markers - rare find!!!
Old Metal Grate of sort...
Dried Peonies...


Made-In-Italy... "Capodimonte" RoSe Adornment...
Just Sweet!*!*!


**~**  FRESH  **~**
I just LoVe well-ironed linens!!!
   Even if a linen has a hole or stain - it can easily be camouflaged by covering it up with an object, folding it  under, or turning it toward the back...  Ironing and a bit of starch MAKE ALL THE DIFFERENCE...
I also have a weakness for Vintage Tole Chandeliers!!! They don't necessarily need to be hung or even lit for that matter...

  3. Confession!!! I have NEVER happened upon a blog that I have actually scrolled through ALL the post... well, until now. I have been scrolling for days, I leave your blog up on my desktop computer & when I find time w/ coffee in hand I sit for a spell drooling over all your talent. And thank you for being such an honest business lady... the hard work is all worth it. I'm a shop & garden center owner & it takes alot to get my attention... you have definitely done just that!!! Hoping you the best... -Sincerely Pamela
