Hello again dear blog, yet again I am so sorry for not posting a new post in almost 2 weeks! I have abandoned you, but you did not miss much, just a few shopping adventures and some snow... yep, I said snow in APRIL! I thought it was bad in March, but now April 16th, in Pennsylvania there was snow. April 16th was a very sad day in many ways, firstly it was a friend of mine who passed away last years birthday, with which I attended her birthday mass, and then spent the day with her family. I did not find out about the VT shootings until I came home later that day, and I must say that I am greatly saddened, and I send my prayers to all of those who have been affected in any way, especially those who lost a loved one and those who were injured. It is a true shame that this may have been prevented. On to a better topic, how about that I am posting some new images of some pretty things and salvages. The image above is of two glass containers which I rescued from my grandmothers recycling bin. I couldn't believe that she was throwing them out! Well, they would have been re-used but why not use them in their original state? The taller bottle says Schenley on it, I believe a whiskey company from several decades ago (?) and the other one has no labeling on it, the only problem with that is that it has a small crack in it, but thankfully it does not leak! The images below are of my gardenia plant which is flowering some beautiful and deliciously fragrant blooms and of my fave, Country Living Magazine with a sprig of "cherry blossoms."
I have been really busy lately and have not had much time to create, but I promise that I will hopefully make a new sign for my kitchen door, which as of now says "Potting Shed". I will probably use the same saying, but I want to change the paint and put some paper on it, vintage perhaps? I also wanted to attend a flea market this past Saturday, but I was not sure what time it opened, and it wasn't such a nice day since there was a Noreastern headed our way and they skies were gray and it was chilly. Hopefully this Saturday I will be able to attend another flea market, which I believe opens at 8 am, and I will try to take photos and share some of my finds with you! As of the rest of my week, it consisted of 3 hours of constant spring cleaning, and listening to music. By the way, I am really enjoying Michael Buble,so handsome and talented (self taught!) Listen to "Save the last Dance for Me" or "Sway." I have also fell in love with the Double Tree commercial which has Dinah Washingtons song "Relax Max." Every time it comes on I start dancing around, so I downloaded it and you will find me constantly singing it ;) . As for now thats about it, I have a few other things to say but I dont want to ramble on different topics! Next post, I promise soon, will contain things on Mothers Day and Spring plantings! Wishing you sunny spring weather and time with your families!
