I can't believe it's been a week since I last blogged! The days are flying & I'm busy getting into work mode with garden clients & trying to keep up with the busy tutti chic boutique. So happy it's friday & that this weekend is mothers day. Hope you all get to be a bit spoiled on Sunday! Just thought I'd post some random things & thoughts to end out the week. First of all the good.....
Picked up this sweet cabinet yesterday on a buying trip! It was calling my name~just look at the fabulous chippy paint! happy mothers day to ME! LOL!
A quick dose of creamy white paint on the inside & some shelves & I've got a fabulous find!
So honored to be featured in the June issue of Romantic Homes along with Lidy & Lisa two very talented bloggers with amazing blogs! The feature is called "BLOG ON" & is written by the talented Tara Frey. It's so exciting to be in this issue chock full of great articles & fabulous eye candy!
Picked up this crown planter in my travels at a consignment store last weekend. While I love to wear red I don't really decorate with it (aside form a few accents here & there) I love the idea of a crown & anything that is french or european inspired especially used as a whimsical planter! I am going to paint it creamy white & sand it where the gold accents are to let the gold come thru & make it look vintage sweet! Love this idea & will put gorgeous summer annuals in it. I'll post a photo when done & planted!
So there you have it the good, the great & the ugly! Here are some random shots of things that are in bloom here in New England. My favorite is the lilac tree that my beloved grandmother (g.g.) started for me about 10 years ago from one of her lilac bushes. I cherish it & will think of a way to bring it with us if we ever move. (Yup the whole bush is coming!lol!)
Love this new rose bush I picked up! It's a quick climber & I just love the name! If you have a Lowes nearby make sure you check out this pretty pink climber!
Tons of lavender phlox all over the yard~LOVE IT!
One of my favorite summer annuals is the soft pink "new wave" petunias. They don't need to be deadheaded & get so thick & lush. I love watching them spill over garden walls and planters!
Look at the pretty bling I picked up the other day!
Last but not least....Have a wonderful, relaxing, love filled mothers day my dear blog friends!
