Things I love....


I love dried hydrangeas...& how fragile they are.......I love bits of lavender.........everywhere...& the ruffness of burlap....






and any kind of paper tag...they're in almost every vignette..








I love having a lamp beside my bed.....and the light it casts after dark...and having beautiful pillows to curl up with at the end of the day.....













I love my aged boxes that look like books...and my vintage bottles...















and I love to blog about things that I love and I love that you leave me wonderful comments.......thank-you! x0x0

Hello, Sea...
So glad to see you came by. I keep trying to get over to see you and...but, here I am this morning.:)

I just caught up a little with your posts...I am totally loving that plate rack J. made for you. It is just awesome.

I love your daughter's room..wouldn't we all love having a brick wall !!!

I love all the things you love..and I want a bedside lamp like that. I am going to be watching for one. Also, where do you get all your pretty tags? Make them yourself?

Come back to see me soon....I'll be back and we'll have a cup of tea. :)

I love your things and as I read this I realized I don't have any of them here. I tried to grow lavender this year...twice...it didn't happen and I have yet to find a source to buy some. My hydrangeas were new and while lovely, only produced a few blooms. I see all the tags around blogland, but I've never made one or had one. I didn't even know what they were until I started blogging. I do have a lamp near the bed...go me:)
