~ Sunday Bliss ~

Took the day to relax and make a few floral arrangements. I have been overwhelmed with so much lately, so this much needed solo time was nice.
I have a lot of basil growing in the garden so I incorporated some of that in my floral arrangements.
Apples from the tree.



Flowers ,bit of rust , moss , buckets with patina, what more can I ask for?


Gourmet  Basil








More Gourmet basil on pretty Limoges plate.
Wishing you a lovely Sunday!
With love always, Angela

~ Trash To Treasure Headboard~


I was running errands few weeks ago when I spotted this curbside find. It was sitting on top of a pile of broken furniture. It had pieces of broken mirror still stuck to it... it looked like it was part of a vanity table or something. I wasn't sure what I would do with it... and almost left it there, but something told me to bring it home.
I washed it down with bleach water and let it dry in the sun. First I thought I would turn it into a chalkboard or a vision board... those ideas did not excite me so I let it sit around for a while... then I had a vision, and mumbled under my nose "how about a headboard" loved that idea and started working on it  right away.

Here is the before picture. I removed the bottom trim and saved it for another project.

I stapled the drop cloth inside the frame, then used a 3inch thick sponge on the back of the fabric, then closed the back with a piece of wood, same size as the opening.
I'm not going to keep this so I will take it to the next show. I also painted the hand crafted glass cabinet found at a yard sale and the chair next to the bed.



I hand painted a few lovely pink roses, distressed it a bit and finished it with a light stain.














Thank you so much for your visit.
Wishing you a lovely day.
With love always, Angela.

~ Weekend In May ~

Oh how I love May! The weather was perfect last Saturday and I had a few pieces of furniture to paint and some projects to complete.
I started with a couple of chairs that I had  purchased a few days before. I wanted to keep my colors soft and relaxed just like my Saturday. I also set the table for a lovely light lunch for a friend who wanted to come over to look at my new chairs. I love the combination of these gorgeous roses and the rust of the lantern... It was just a perfect relaxed Saturday that does NOT happen to often.



















Thank you for your visit. Wishing you a lovely and creative day.
With love always, Angela
