i stopped in at the ironstone nest
with my son's girlfriend today.
erin has really gotten into chalk painting and has painted some great pieces 
and wanted to pick-up some more
annie sloans chalk paint to keep the fun going.

as usual laura's shop always amazes me.
so much inspiration in one place.
every piece painted to perfection.
and there's exciting news,
miss mustard seed  herself is coming to the shop!
for info.

laura's pieces are so great while we were there
 i texted a few photos of a 
dresser to my friend and she 
bought it over the phone!

i picked up some paint and this pillow.
love it.

it fits right at home.

i found these two sundae(?) glasses at a resell shope the other day.
they remind me of liberty of london.
target had a promotional product line of liberty of london a few years ago and i 
was able to snatch up a few pieces.
love them. 

the canisters behind the glasses are from target.

i guess since 1988 they've had a subsidary in japan, 
so who knows they could be 
liberty of london glasses?

we interrupt spring

more springy decorating pics,

even though this happened yesterday.......

not nice!

back to bringing out the spring. 

i found the quilted piece on the bench at a resale shop.

not sure what the small quilt piece was for, 
it looks like it could have 
been a pillow cover, but it doesn't have
an opening.

 love all the different prints.

 please excuse the worn pink
terrycloth towel.
it's for gordon's post
when he's on neighborhood watch.

or snoozin'.

spring has sprung!

we have had some nice warm sunny days, 
and it spurred me on to start 
bringing spring indoors.

i started this "quilt'
years ago.
the squares are hand pieced and i just recently machine
stiched them together.
there are a few squares that i will need to rip out as they don't quite match up.
i haven't completed the backing or binding,
i suppose i will get to all of this in another few years.
