I've been a bit under the weather lately, and I'm tired of being in the bed... so thought I would share a few pretties with you today!
I just love the look of these vintage books without their covers!
and also love the dried flowers!
Another favorite is vintage bottles, I love to decorate them up!!!
I just love the colors on this beautiful bowl.
This is a top that I bought at a Department store ... so I could cut it up for pillows, I will be sharing the finished pillow soon!
This is the same top, I thought the color turned out pretty on this picture too, but it's not the true color, the true color is the picture above! It amazes me when I take pictures I never know what color things will be. I really need to take some classes to learn to take better pictures , I have a really hard time trying to get good photo's... the lighting is always a problem for me. Do any of you have this problem, or is it just me?
Now on to the rustic... Most of you that follow my blog knows how much I love foo foo and feminine things, but I also LOVE rusty and crusty items too... and I have a 2400 sq. foot building full to prove it! Yes I told you before I am a hoarder, I really need to sale a lot of the things, but I keep thinking someday I will use the stuff "how could I ever use that much stuff"
I took these pictures recently when I was taking pictures of one of my dear friends granddaughter's playhouse! I just had a fit when I saw this wonderful little shed!
I just love all of the rustic things hanging all over the little shed!
Especially the boots! Well I'm headed back to bed... I was only going to post a few pictures... this is one of my problems I always have to over do, do to much, have to many projects, and run myself ragged. I feel like sometimes I'm running in circles and getting no where! I read a post that Debra from Talking Trash posted today, and it fit me perfectly, about starting projects and moving to another one before you even get the one done that you had already started. I think by reading the comments that where left to her, there are a lot of us that try to do to much and become run down, that is definitely happening to me! I need some balance in my life... I would love to hear your thoughts... I know in my case I go over board with everything I do, and there just doesn't seem to be enough hours in the day to get it all done! So sorry I like to keep my blog uplifting and not complain about things, but this is something that I have really been struggling with! Do you struggle with the same things? I would love to know.... I hope everyone has a wonderful week and hope you enjoyed the pretties for today!
