Blogging this summer has been few & far between & for the next few weeks I won't be blogging at all! It's all good though...I'm getting the house & gardens ready for a photo shoot with a favorite magazine & a favorite magazine editor! Can you guess which one it is? LOL! I am so excited & at the same time a nervous wreck! When I found out how long the shoot sometimes lasts I almost fainted~sometimes 12 hours! YIKES! My friend Peggy's home will be the following day & a favorite french antiques shop near my beach house will be the day after that! Should be fun & we are all looking forward to it & meeting the fabulous ----! Have you guessed yet? I will post on how it went & how much fun it was to meet the glamorous mystery woman coming to put her magical touches on our homes! Bye bye for now~be back soon with all the details! P.S. RUN don't walk to the nearest Lowes if you LOVE roses! I hit a clearance sale on roses like no other! Climbers, carpet roses, old english Jackson Perkins , you name it & the prices were so low I couldn't believe the tags! I bought 6 different bushes for 35.00 dollars total! Some of the bushes were a mere 1.88! Here is a picture of the bunch just unloaded from the car. I would call first to see if your local Lowes is having this clearance before I run down there though. If so it is so worth the trip. I got caught in a torrential downpour with tornado warnings out (never experienced that here before!) But, it was SO worth it~I bought some real beauties all in fabulous condition! Let me know if any of you are as lucky as I was.
Bought this old trough at an antiques shop I frequent & was offered double for it when I left by another customer! LOL! "So sorry,but this is a keeper" I politely replied.
Put lots of lantana with rosemary , blue salvia & licorice in this chippy, aged trough~Love the weathered beauty of it! See you all in a while! xoxo
