Home and Garden Tour....6



This is a Nicole Sayre doll that Paula has posed on top of a huge bird bath in the corner of the back living room....



A pair of Evi's rabbits sit on an antique bench in the front room.....(Paula has a fabulous collection of Evi's wonderful and diverse creations)...





These three old flour bins have been repurposed and now hold tall pillar candles up on the ledge of the open ceiling in the back room....







I found this wire fireplace screen at Brimfield or was it Madison Bouckville?... and talked her into it.....at least that's the way I remember it!



This vignette sits on top of a cupboard in the kitchen....the little card hanging on the wire basket was made by Kim Stout of Thistle Hill.....she hand drew the picture around the antique buttons sewn to the card to create this little piece of eye candy....



A Mackensie-Childs teapot sits on the stove behind this little vignette......



As her flea market....junking buddy....it is always fun for me to see how Paula will use her finds in her home.....





It looks like a cutting board but Paula believes it came off an old porch.....



The dining room....



details........







Another product of Evi's imagination sits among Paula's brown transferware collection.....









Paula's charming and handsome boyfriend Bill was delighted to surprise Paula with this piece from River in Essex, Ct.......Paula found this pair of windows at Brimfield last September.....



I could go on and on with Paula's fairy tale home but I promised to move on to the other fabulous homes on the tour....

I don't think I've ever been to a blog post where I just sat there and said, as I scrolled, "oh wow..." "wow" "wow, wow, wow", "wowzie wow", SO MUCH! :)

Love all the chicken wire, wire, and zinc things!!

Thanks, Laura!
