Make it Monday

I thought I would join in on the fun of the Make it Monday blog the twice remembered cottage. Since my birthday is May 1st Mayday I have always been fond of Mayday baskets. I remember making little paper doilly baskets as a youngster and filling them with fresh picked flowers (the neighbors flowers) then putting the sweet little baskets on the neighbors porch. (thus not really stealing the flowers). Well I know it's only March and since I just started my Etsy store I wanted to put something on their that I created, so here's my little silver spring March basket.

Nothing much just a beautiful day!

Wow was it ever a beautiful pre-spring day! I can't tell you how much I need vitamin "d"!.Us Washintonians are pretty sun deprived! We are very fortunate with our mild winters, but that doesn't mean we get too many rays of sunshine.You can bet when we do we reallly appreciate it, people were so friendly today, it really is something that vitamin "d"!
I've been busy setting up my Etsy shop, so if you get a chance click on the sidebar and take a peek! Thanks

Do I have OCD?

Sometimes I wonder why I change my furniture so often? When I look back on Pictures like this one.This table looked great didn't it? I can't even remember now why I took it out? I also forgot all about the old drysink pictured in the first photo to the upper right. Yep sold that baby about a year and a half ago! I'm actually contemplating getting rid of the old fir corner cupboard too. Well I guess its a really good thing I have a really bad memory!
I wonder what I was thinking? I know I wasn't thinking I want to put a tiny little round cafe table there, But that is what I did.I know I had a good reason, it's just my bad memory really. I have warned my children ahead of time that just about everything in the house is for sale hoping when they get older they aren't scarred for life. They pretty much know not to get too attached, really it isn't much of a problem yet as they don't really share my taste. I think maybe it's time for that old china cabinet to go to!:)

White Wednesday white Cupboard love

I love old white cupboards! These are some Fabulous pieces we have had in the shop.
This is absolutely one of my all time favorite pieces! Old tin top counter, with a bin drawer even!

This two piece cutie is in Wendys living room.
These were the coolest old white metal lockers with little tin drawers inside. They didn't last long at the shop!

This is an old english linen press I bought at auction about twelve years ago, I think it has been in every room in my house. presently holds my t.v.
