Puttering in the Sun Room for the 100th White Wednesday

I guess you could say that's my hobby...puttering...you know playing with little things, moving them around...adding...and then moving things around some more. I've been puttering in the sunroom again.

(my bluebird china cups will be linked to A Rosy Note)

It's one of my favorite places to be in the warmer months.
The kitties and I hang out there alot.

I like a white backdrop for all my quilts,
(that change for the season)
pillows, and vintage garden goodies.

And here's the newest member of the lamb family.
Given to me by one of the sweetest, most talented, cutest
little redheads around....
The duct tape diva herself...

I like to keep things fun out here...
things that make me giggle

Even a chalkware chicken sitting on a nest.

Love these pillows that I found at my friend Laura's space.
(thanks girlfriend!!!)

One of my fave color combos is pink and green;
fresh and Springy.
I found this quilt a few weeks ago for just a few dollars.

I just can't pass up a darling pillow,
with graphics from the 30's.
Enlarge it to see that it was a Birthday Gift long ago.

I thought I'd better share my late Spring fun
before it was time to change out for Summer.

Be Sure you head on over to Faded Charm to see what's going on.
Kathleen has some celebratin' this week!

I'm linking to all these great parties this week:

Hope to see you Thursday afternoon for
 Vintage Inspiration Friday

  9. How wonderful to have a sun room! And I share your love of quilts... I got one last summer from the Santa Fe flea market. A crazy quilt from 1903! It was in the perfect colors for my house...

  10. Debra, I love your cute cottage sunroom and those crazed china cups are wonderful. Great shots.

  14. What a pleasant there on the patio! I would also like to expose the pillows and blankets, but yesterday was cold, the weather was nice today. I hope that tomorrow will be great.

  15. I am puttering too Debra! The weather is doing strange things. Has been raining all day and I had to have the heater on for a while. So I am hanging out in the house, decorating and soldering. Let's have some tea on your porch soon, it looks really lovely. ;) Ciao Rita Mammabellarte

  30. Oh Debra if I had a space filled with such delightful goodies I'd be doing the same thing.

    Your sweet new addition is so cheerful looking, she makes me smile. I picked up a vintage childrens squeaky toy lamb last year for no other reason that it made me smile and I couldn't think of passing it up. It's still one of my favorite vintage items although I never really know how to use it.

  31. Really great! I love the pillows and all the things else! xx
