White Wednesday - Good to be back home!

Oh. My.Gosh!

I am back in Oregon

(1/2 time in Montana
for each of the last
3 months!)

Last night I put some
creamy goodies
on my sideboard.

Bits of this and that ....

Things I own and like.

Look at the detail on this vintage print by Paul de Longpre.

Found this at an estate sale last summer and heart pounded .... 

Love at first sight?

(note:  deLongpre was a
French-born American painter
and horticulturist 1855-1911)

watercolor ....
roses ....
1900's sense of style ... 

What's NOT to love??

Put into a vintage frame and
propped it in front of the mirror.

I love this as a backdrop!

Love the crackle on this ironstone!

A bunch of small oval dishes
(ironstone, of course!)
I use for EVERYTHING ...

stacked under one of my
favorite candles.

Love the look of corks ....

(and see my hiding place for
special notes behind the mirror frame?)

Another ironstone plate
(I love the oval shape best!)

More scented candles
that make the room smell

And a chippy white
ammo box.

Didn't know it was an
ammo box - just love the
chippy white paint.

Isn't it just

A barn sale find ...

It's good to be home.

Hugs and hope you have a wonderful White Wednesday and can surround yourself with things that make you smile!
