Chippy, Rusty, Crusty Wall Hangings and Roses

Yes, I'm manic today-totally out there!
Breaking all the rules.
What are the rules anyway?

Two blog posts in one day-no way!

So I'm waiting til 12:05 to make sure I don't post on the same day.

I know, some of you out there are thinking, is that all she does all day???


Actually no.

Today was a lay around on the couch all day and pray for a reprieve.
Depression is gone and now I'm manic.  Who cares if everyone thinks I'm crazy. 
Truth is, I am!!!
Okay, don't call 911.  I'm no danger to myself or anyone else.  It will gone in a few days.

So after painting another pear for the 4th time (a new hobby with acrylic that I've acquired thanks to some great friends and family:)
I'm up.

So I blog!

On the way home from HHI, I found the sweetest antique mall in Metter, GA.
I found these great wall hangers, chippy, rusty, crusty, flowers and crystals-all my loves rolled into one great package.

Yes, I admit it.  I kept them!  Aren't they preeetty!
I'm so excited and I think I like it....

Okay, so I'm coming in for a landing and I'll show you my more melancholy side. This is where I've been all day. 

I bought these roses in a porcelain pitcher from my friend, Olive.  She's so good, I do declare!
Don't they make you feel like you've just been given a dozen roses!

Most of the items in my home come from the vendors in my shop since I don't have time to get out on the weekends.  The milk glass vase is a beauty.  Of course, it is!  I have a natural love for the MG I saw in my grannies home.

Isn't she lovely???
I don't know what the deal is with my camera, but I sure to do like the subtle lighting.

I guess I'm in the mood for love so I photographed my rings
.  I bought these after my daddy died.  I had been wanting a simple set that looked vintage.  It was one of those cash or crash days.  I forked out the cash.

White Shoulder-the smell of my mama.  I got it at an estate sell after she died and when I'm longing to feel close to her, I open the miniature perfume bottle and enhale!

Another favorite-delicate handstitched linen doilies. 

I think this is my favorite post yet. 
It's made me smile:)

Happy Morning to You...

I'm going to bed now.


  1. you're funny...and I love this post!

  2. I adore milk glass. Mother had several pieces and for some reason I didn't get them. hm.... White Shoulders...I haven't thought of that scent in so long. It was actually my signature perfume in college. I loved it. Take care of yourself. Bonnie
