Front Porch and Landscaping Update

I've been trying to get this post out for awhile, waiting on warmer weather to get some flowers and a fern for the front porch. We had a lot of rain and chilly weather with freezing temps even at the beginning of May. My Cervical Spine problems and surgery have kept me from being able to get plants and flowers potted, so I had to wait for last weekend to persuade my husband to take me out to find some. We tried 3 different places and since I'm about 4 weeks behind on this project all the plants were picked over and way overpriced. I had to make choices in a hurry because the nurseries were crowded and 3/4 of the customers weren't bothering to wear masks. I ended up with a bit of a hodge podge, but at least I have a few colorful blooms.

Vintage Etagere in the Garden Room

I've been feeling the need to putter a bit, so I turned my attention to the vintage plant stand in the Garden Room. I bought this metal etagere when we first got married, so it definitely qualifies as "vintage". (better described as a piece of vintage "junk".) It's had many lives, the last one being outside on the covered back porch here at the new house.

All About Home #40

Hi Friends and Welcome,
Thanks so much for coming by to visit and join in on the party this week. My postponed Cervical Spine Surgery finally happened this last Monday (a week ago today). I wasn't sure when I would feel up to blogging, but I'm on the mend. It's a slow process, but I'm making good progress. Thankyou for all your prayers and well wishes!

A Little Spring Vintage on the Baker's Rack and Surgery Update

Hi Friends, I just wanted to share a quick post letting you know I survived the Cervical Spine surgery that I had on Monday. I guess "survived" is the correct term, but it's not been an easy few days. I'm home and taking it really easy. I'm not in a cervical collar, which is nice, but I feel a little vulnerable to moving wrong or overdo-ing it. I thought I'd share a pic of my Spring Baker's Rack that I put together last week with some vintage birdie and garden items for a small distraction. It may be awhile before I can do much else around here.

Happy Mother's Day and a Blog Note.

Hi Friends, I'm hoping you're having a lovely Mother's Day, even though it might not look like usual. It's a beautiful sunshine-y day around here so that helps brighten the mood. I told my girls we would just put off celebrating till we could hopefully all be together sometime this summer. I think we're all feeling a little isolated. I just cannot take any chances even though our town is opening back up this week. It may be awhile till I get back out there to public places. I also plan on wearing a mask.

French Faience in the Holiday Cupboard

A few weeks ago I decided to try something a little different here in the Holiday Cupboard, by bringing out my French Pottery aka my "wedding china". When I was choosing my china pattern for my Bridal Registry back in the 70's, I fell in love with this beautiful handpainted romantic look.
