One Man’s Trash Is Another Man’s Treasure
This past weekend I had the opportunity to search for treasures in an antique mall. I was not looking for anything in particular, but came across these mint julep cups. They needed so much TLC that I wondered if I could bring them back to life. The weight and quality were good, so I decided to take a chance. After about 10 minutes of scrubbing I actually brought them back to their glory days and look forward to using them soon. A fun side note is that you can use these versatile silver cups many different ways. I attended a luncheon a few years ago and the soup course was served in these pretty little cups. They are also perfect for small flower arrangements. How about you? Do you like the challenge of hunting for treasures or do you prefer the easy accessibility of buying new items?
What’s up, Doc?
I spied this cute rabbit on the side of the road and found myself turning around to take a photo. This rabbit began its life as an ordinary hay bale and I just loved how some creative person turned him into this little guy.
Sliver of Light
One evening this past week I was at my kitchen window cleaning up dinner dishes when I looked up and saw this unusual sight. At first glance it may look like a regular photo of scenery but it was taken during a thunderstorm at dusk. The one small spot of light you see was as bright as a light bulb while the rest of sky was cloudy and dark. It was so striking I just had to share it with you.
Bumper Sticker Love
The other day I saw this bumper sticker and it certainly made me think. Sometimes I think we believe that to make a difference we must do something grand but maybe this simple directive is all it takes.
I saw these J/Slides Rally Lace Up Floral Espadrille Sneakers and can’t get them out of my mind. I mean, floral shoes would be so perfect for someone who loves flowers as much as I do. I’ll let you know if these babies end up at my front door.
Have a great weekend and enjoy the beautiful spring weather! If you’d like to leave a comment, just click on the title of this post and the comment form will appear at the bottom of the page.
