I can hardly believe it has been over a month since I have posted on my blog. I have popped on a few times and visited a couple of your blogs but have not done much commenting. I have missed connecting with y’all. So, what have I been up to? Well, I have been battling the Shingles. I’m on my third round of meds and am much better, but this is getting old. In addition to the discomfort, I have just not felt like doing anything more than the necessities. Also, my best friend’s mother passed away last week after a long hospital stay – so I have been trying to spend time with her and help out where I can. Please keep her family in your prayers – those of you who have lost your parents know what a heavyhearted time this is.
Welcome to my new followers and thank you to those of you who have hung in there with me. I appreciate each one of you!
I placed an order with Misi of Gable House Goodes in early May – just got around to taking pictures. I ordered two fabric covered boxes for my blue and brown guest room. They are fabulous! Misi didn’t just send the boxes – each one was tied with twine and a bunch of Sweet Annie – and she included some wonderfully scented faux flowers. She always goes above and beyond. Thank you, Misi, I love everything! Misi is having a sale so pop over and check out her offerings.
Aren’t these boxes gorgeous! I had wanted something to put in this blue bottle I picked up a while back – aren’t these flowers just perfect!
A couple of weeks ago DH took me to my favorite antiquing town for a little get away. Unfortunately, it was very hot and I wasn’t feeling very well by the time we got there – so we just visited a couple of my favorite shops and came home. I did find one item on my wish list though. I was looking for a stoneware jug to make into a lamp for the guest room, and at Maddy’s I found a jug that was already made into a lamp – and at a good price too. (Lamp is pictured above.) Now I need to order a lamp shade for it, I’m not loving the one I had on hand.
A couple of lamp shades and curtains are all I need to finish the room – of course the tweaking will never be done. I think I want tobacco cloth curtains, but have not made a final decision yet.
I HAVE A QUESTION:
We are planning a vacation in mid July. We are leaning towards a trip to the mountains – maybe North Carolina or Tennessee. Does anyone have any tips on great places to visit?
I hope you are all having a wonderful summer!
