New Pretty!!

Check out the pretty painted piece I ordered from Karla! She rescued a couple of wooden pieces that her husband had put in the burn pile, and painted sweet roses on them.

Although I know it's a newly-painted piece, she made it to look like it had graced someone's lovely home in days gone by.

I think it's going in the living room (by the stairwell), where it will be visible from the dining room as well.
Thanks so much, Karla, I love it!

Karla calls these "doodads"...... You can read the story about them on her blog: http://karlascottage.typepad.com/karlascottage/2007/04/if_only_all_day.html

A thank-you is also in order for Sonia, who was so kind in nominating me for the thinking blog, and said the sweetest things in doing so....... Sonia is very talented and makes such pretty things; if you haven't visited her blog, please take a moment to do so:

That is so pretty and so clever. I found some old wooden pickets, not the pointy kind but with sculptured tops and I am painting them and I am having my Mother do some too. Marybeth
