vintage bowl...


I think I'm actually happy this week has come to a close…


I’ve found myself dragging a bit, don’t particularly know why.  Must be post something or other…

I’m off work tomorrow and I have the whole day to play in the dirt and nothing perks me up quite like weed free flower beds with nice fresh compost…big sigh…

I am weird, aren’t I?



I’ve wanted to share these next photos with you for a couple of weeks…


My sister in law Shelly is the best thrift store shopper I know. She noticed the stemware and juice pitcher I scored at Goodwill last month and happened on this beautiful, vintage bowl in exactly the same pattern.  It is the perfect size candy dish for my hutch and I look forward to filling it up often.


Notice what a perfect match it is with the glassware in my new shelf display…





If that weren’t enough she made me the most scrumptious cupcakes for my birthday and brought them over to me in this…



Adorable, huh?

I am one blessed girl...

Looking forward to the weekend,
Patty

Very cute bowl...what a great shopper your sister in law is!! (and yes, you are a lucky girl!)
I don't think you're weird at all for loving compost and a weed free garden...I live for the days of going out and playing in the dirt. I have been outside almost everyday this week digging in dirt and yesterday I worked in cow manure compost and was so happy it made me whistle! :) Wish we lived closer, we could dig in dirt together! :0)
Thanks for linking up, I was getting a bit worried...I don't like having a big fat zero on my parties...it scares me! lol :)
hugs to you today!
Melissa

Hi Patty, I always go outside and dig in my flower beds when I am troubled. There is nothing like dirt between your fingers to help solve problems.

Love your shelf. I have the Goodness Gracious bookbook....just adore it.

Thank you so much for your kind comment to me on the blogging changes post. Your comment was so full of wisdom. I think I am okay....just hit a rough spot.

So glad God brought you into my life.

Compost is a wonderful thing--us gardeners have to stick together just so we know we're normal, lol!

Oh my do we have similar kitchen ideas. I have that exact rolling pin hook. I never found a great spot for it in my kitchen so now it's in my daughter's playhouse kitchen (not as fancy as it sounds). I love your teapot, sugar and creamer. I just love red and green together. It's not just for Christmas.
