Delicate



As much as I love the rustic, the rough and industrial look...
...I do have a feminine and romantic side...



I'm just saying...

The snow is starting to melt and I'm hoping by the weekend it will disappear....
...looking forward to having some time to do some arranging and take a few new pictures.

....There are some fun things happening this month... a few trips in the works ...some family birthdays...HAPPY BIRTHDAY to sister LYNN...TODAY!
...a big flea market down south...
... and girlfriend Evi will be participating in an Antique and Juried Craft Show in New Jersey.

Before you know it ....April will be here....my regular flea markets start up, crocuses and daffodils and tulips and violets will appear...
...there will be antiquing trips and visits to Paula and the Connecticut girls and TIME....

...and hopefully....no more snow!

:) I shall sleep so soundly thinking of all that fun! Good night!

Such beautiful photos. Did you ever figure out new ways to utilize funnels in your decor? (after the inspiration from Anthro?).

I thought of an idea (that I may actually use myself!) -- how about using a larger funnel, somehow affixed to the wall, to house a ball of twine? Thread the twine through the funnel opening at the bottom and voila -- a twine dispenser? Could work. :)

Take care!

I'm with ya on the snow thing, it's slowly melting here in Iowa too, I may even paint a piece of furniture outside in the next few days...it seems weird to be painting next to a 3 foot snow drift, but we do what we gotta do and 49 degrees is enough for me!!!

I'm anxious for the fleas too!!!

Hey Laura. I usually look forward to fall because we have so much constant heat in Florida but it's been a really strange cold winter and blog land sure is putting me in the mood for spring. Sounds like you have so much to look forward to.

Hugs...Tracy :)

The flowers in the first photo are fabulous, so dainty and delicate. Are they for a special project or part of a collection to admire and happily sigh over?
