Just a Few Things I Thought Interesting Today

Today I was looking around the house for something to post.....I had an idea earlier in the week for today's post....but where did that idea go?  A mystery to me.  So, I poked around and chose these items to mention to you...perhaps you will find them of interest.

This first one is a beautiful print given to me several years ago by Mr. G.  Isn't she beautiful?  I really need to get her framed.  Seems Mr. G. has all kinds of ideas about things I happen to love collecting.

 This is a beautiful photo...a card sent to me by one of you, (Sandra in Alabama), also several years ago.  It is dear.  I feel like I'd love walking right into that house and garden.  And, more French Knots.
I can almost smell the flowers!

 Now, okay....this might puzzle you.  It is actually a scrap from a larger piece of painted canvas.  You know I do have a "thing" for that stuff, don't you?  It's about four inches square.  Why am I showing you this?'s probably going to be made into something.  What, you ask?  I'm not sure, but thought if I showed it to you it bring an idea to mind and I could make it, then show THAT to you.
Myself...well, I think it's beautiful just like it is, but I must confess....just thinking what I could do with it entertains me.

Why this photo?  For no other reason than I wanted you to see this beautiful flower.  It is, of course, a Daffodil.  Air dried right there on that little chest.   FROM LAST SPRING!  And, it has dried paper thin and the color is still pretty. 
 I now have some daffodils drying from this Spring.  

 Lastly....this is one of my favorite spots in the house.  Truly.  I don't think I know anyone else using a medicine cabinet to house vintage threads.  LOVE IT!  Actually, there are two of these cabinets in my bathroom.  One much larger, which I use, and this one over the second sink...which is not used at all.
Weird, I know.  But, isn't it pretty? odd selection of photos, I suppose.  Hopefully, you found them interesting and if nothing else, you can appreciate the uniqueness of these items.  As you already know, there is no telling what I might post here at any given time.  Thanks for taking the time to look!

until next time

Hello Pat,

Oooo yes the photos are lovely, the lady is beautiful and the garden is my idea of paradise!
Funnily enough I have recently been looking at some gorgeous cross stitch designs of gardens just like your photo.

Best wishes

Hello my friend...

What a lovely post full of lovely and beautiful things. I too have a scrap of painted parchment and I treasure it. It was given to me by an artist friend of our family and he used it as a get well card when I was going through breast cancer treatment. I thought that was a very clever idea 😊 I also love the English garden...ah yes I would be right at home walking through those gardens and then having a nice cup of tea ... with a dear friend of course...would you care to join me? 🤗

I also love how your daffodil dried so beautifully! Spring is definitely in the air!!

Happy Monday and I hope you are having a good start to your week. Hugs my friend ❤️❤️
