Spring in the sunroom....

                         Hello everyone....hope this finds you all well and enjoying the same wonderful spring weather we are.....
                   I thought I would freshen the sunroom today...its be awhile I must confess..
                  Its still my favorite room in the house.....
                          its where my girlfriends head....and demand a tea.....(yes they are buggers )
                      I just found the tin jug at Homesense for a whopping $ 3.99...yes I know I am soooooo out of control!!!!
                          Now I think I will make a cup of tea and grab a JDL magazine and do well.....nothing ...at least for a little while! Thanks so much for taking the time to come by...xoxo

Rustic Thyme.....

                            I bought some rustic organic thyme...
                          then I cut it....and chopped it....
                          and planted it...
                     but the best part of all.....was the scent it left on my hands. Also bought a rolling pin at the $1 store...stained it dark along with some wooden spoons..I love how it turned out....so much pleasure for so little money....
           Hope you have a wondeful day....x0x0

Texture..Scent & Colour.....


                Sometimes things just go together...like tea and chocolate!!  Like exposed brick...with all its texture ....
                        
                         and fresh herbs...with their pungent scent and strong colour...
                                .

                         even the white ironstone and wire seem at home here...
                                I love when things "fall " into place.....don"t you?  Have an awesome day my friends...thanks for coming by!!   x0x0 Chrissy

Well Worn....

                                          As I get ready for a busy day at work tomorrow...selling expensive skincare...giving advice to women on how to keep their skin looking young....listening to them complain about this wrinkle and that wrinkle...I think to myself...if only they could see...
                                   if only they could see the beauty in a face well worn with time...
                                      if only they knew how each line tells a story and has been well earned...is it just me that see's beauty in an aged face...it can't be...
                                  .....this last photo is my favorite I took it while on a boat in Ireland..I fell in love with his tired old face.....how could I not....enjoy your weekend and please...don't worry about those wrinkles...o.k???  x0x0 Chrissy
