another year gone...

last week i had a bday and received some great gifts:)  i love this simply shabby chic quilt, 

it's pale pink with tiny roses on one side, and has large scattered roses on a white bkgd on the reverse side, and ruffles all around.

with an amazon gift card, i found a white ruffled bed ruffle and 2 white ruffled shams.  so, now, i'm working on changing up the master bedroom.  believe me, it needs changing:)

with a hobby lobby gift card, i found this great zinc finish terrarium, 

and this distressed suitcase,--it's just about the same color as my newest shutters.

this tray will probably end up in my kitchen and the frame in a bedroom.

the last gift--romantic country is a favorite magazine of mine. 

stephanie from the spanish dahlia is featured in this issue--such a pretty blog, check her out:)

and i finished another rose painting--this has a very different style of rose than the last painting.

it's finally in the 60's here, i'm going to go soak up some sun, now.
have a great week!

happy spring!...

I haven’t had much time to blog.  we’ve been enjoying some family time, and some junking trips.

I found a cute ruffled apron and a couple of old shutters painted a great blue-ish green color at logan village mall in noblesville.

and I’ve been painting.
 earlier, I showed you jo anne coletti’s painting book—here’s how my rose turned out. 
 bay is still recouping from an acl tear, and it’s been a lot of work keeping this one calm 24/7.  here she is all drugged up-bless her heart.

my husband has a 3 day weekend-yay!
hope your weekend is great!
