flower harvest

I'm so tickled, the cutting garden has been such a success - I have been harvesting flowers for weeks

I can barely keep up with it - some goes straight into a vase or junky container
I have flowers in every room of the house and I LOVE it!

while others are cut for drying

so much beauty

when I'm in the garden

I am happy and at peace

watching the world go by

in the summer my sweet doggie Lily claims her spot on our porch

I had to share these pics my hubby snapped the other day

she's so adorable

country junkin'

my hubby and I went on a little jaunt this past weekend to enjoy some country food and good old fashioned junkin'
we scored all sorts of goodies

I couldn't pass up these old paper mache cake circles and am excited to share my artsy plans for them...more to come

the machinist chest is gorgeous

old milk and soda caps galore

funky old souvenir pillows

rusty goodness

old tins - large, small, tall and check out that huge clothespin

we'll put some of these finds in our antiques shoppe and some in our art supply online store

but the old wire doll bed? that's mine o' mine - I'm in love...
