Just sharing a little goodness ~


How precious is this sweet little girl?

I found her online and had to share her with you!

My son gave me this wonderful framed poppy print

but it wasn't quite my style.

He didn't care if I altered it,

so I decided to change it up just a little bit.

I had a few more very old herbarium sheets that I hadn't framed so

I covered a piece of cardboard with some lovely fabric

that would coordinate with them first.

Then I placed them as best I could.

I don't know, I would have rather not have them overlap but oh well,

I wanted to include them all.

I also spray painted the frame a pale bronze color.

I really love it now!!!!

I hung it in our den over the desk.
These pages are from 1898 and should be displayed.
Not tucked away in a drawer.

We opened our pool in May but look how AWFUL it was!

Thank goodness our son Brent, his wife Emily

and our son Noah helped us.

After a good scrubbing, tons of chemicals it is wonderful now!

It has been so, so terribly hot here in middle Georgia this summer.

We're all so thankful to have this pool to cool down!

I scrounged around our house this summer

and found TONS more frames so I proceeded

to print out so many more images that I love.

Now to find places to put them all!

I had a fun junkin' day with our son Brad

and found these beautiful treasures!!!

I'll be making a couple of floral arrangements

in those birch bark cones. Maybe to go in our new guest bedroom.

Just look at that yummy antique lace!!!

I've been working on decorating our master guest room too.

I still want to add SO much more artwork.

It really is a work in progress.

Oh...and I had my left hip replaced June 20th

and I can't EVEN believe

how much better I can walk now without pain!

Hopefully now I can get back to making something pretty.

It's been a rough couple of years for me.

I hope you are doing so good.

This year is flying by!!!

Be sure to cherish each and every moment

with those you love.

Thank you always for visiting me here!

Hugs and love,

I love your poppy makeover! What a wonderful idea and one I would not have thought of on my own. Old things are a particular love of mine and having them around makes everything seem cozy. Your home sounds so inviting, please keep sharing.🌺

I love the Boucher print (perhaps it's real!) and all the other lovely prints you are going to hang. I was recently inspired to do the same thing but you are way ahead of me, I have only started to gather frames. Good things take time...
