"Dear mate, the house is such a mess, you can barely get through it......you wonder what I do all day....well today I didn't do it"









My Mom always had that poem posted on the fridge....gotta love it! At least I know the mantle is clean, Chrissy

Chrissy- I haven't done it for almost 3 weeks now! Cute quote!

I am looking at my little mantle here in the room I am holed up in with such an itch to go make it look more like yours! Did you dry your hydrangeas? They are so lovely ! I love the reflection of the brick in the one shot.

Your pictures are just beautiful as usual!

Chissy,
The photo of the silver vase full of sagey colored dried hydrangeas looks very reminiscent of a vignette in my dining room. I just love your style and all of the creative vignettes you share.
