Pitcher Makeover This is the metal pitcher that I made over today..... thought it would be pretty in a pale aqua with some pink roses.....
(scroll down for the "before")

Here's the pitcher "before".... not necessarily awful, but it didn't really go with my decor. Seeing as how I originally purchased it at Big Lots for $3.99 (the tag is still on the bottom ;) I didn't mind painting over it.

I'm quite pleased with the "after"....... The paint was a free sample I ordered from Valspar, and I already had the decal and pitcher! Inexpensive makeover!!

Hello my little magnolia blossom!A stop at Goodwill earlier today netted these two vintage framed prints.
I like how the shabby frames include a little blue to pick up the background of the flowers.

Thank you for the birthday wishes for my mom..... we'll be going out this weekend for a family celebration for her and for Andrew. :)

~Happy Birthday, Mom~
Today is my Mom's 77th Birthday!This pic of us was taken just two years ago..... no one can ever believe she's in her 70's. She is beautiful and energetic, and I love and admire her greatly. She is the most giving and generous person I know.
I chose this vintage postcard for today because it combines her favorite flower, the yellow rose, with mine (which you all know is the pink rose! :)
Wishing her, and all of you, a lovely day!

A pretty bouqet I received from a friend a couple of months ago. I sat them aside, as they were in the vase, and look how lovely they dried! :)

Happy Birthday to my firstborn Andrew, who is 25 today!
I gave him bubbles again this year, and told him "Always celebrate the child in you."
This is a pic of me with him just last month, we went to some March Madness games together.
P.S. I still like blowing bubbles.....

I found this cute little vintage spice container at my fave antique shoppe..... I knew it would be perfect for holding some of the wild violets that are happily peppering our lawn right now.

Tin = $2 ... Wild Violets = Free ... Enjoying the Simple things = Priceless

Yard work is made sweeter when you hang a jar of daffodils on your wheelbarrow :)

Vintage Sewing Box

I have a weakness for vintage floral/pastel hatboxes or sewing boxes. I can admit it.

Bought this one at the Flea Market Extravaganza last fall. This is a pic (above)of what it looks like inside.

Vintage Love!
