Can you imagine....

                                    Can you imagine.....coming home to any of these lovely rooms......
                                kicking your shoes off after a long day...having a cup of tea....
                                     closing your eyes for just a few minutes....
                                         before having a light dinner.....and a nice hot bath....ahhhhh....
                                    can you imagine......enjoy your weekend! Chrissy x0x0

A French clock, hymn cards and a vintage wire basket....

                                  Good Tuesday morning !!!  Hope everyone enjoyed their Mother's Day....
                                             we went to the flea market and boy did I find some wonderful things.....
                                first this little french clock...I have seen them for sale for up to $100 but I paid...are you ready....$ 12...I love it!  Then I found these wonderful little #'s..they are from an  old church used on the hymn board...I got quite a few of them for $10....wait,theres more.....
                                   I saw this old wire rack from quite a distance and knew I wanted it...
                                         this was the most expensive thing I bought $20...but it was so worth it !

                                        Then Meg spotted a booth with old letters and envelopes...
                                            oh my beating heart..just what I needed to fill my wire basket !!!!
                      I love the way they all work together like it was meant to be...I went for that real Jeanne D'arc look that I love so much....thanks for coming by..talk soon! x0x0
