mushroom

“Mushroom Study” – by Georgia Mars 2009

I “won” this lovely work of art of a splendid mushroom. We have had so much rain, and there are many mushrooms I spot by the base of trees or in shady areas. 

                     One of my favorite recipes includes mushrooms.

posh paper

If you have a fetish for posh paper then allow me to invite  you to Real Card Studio.  She also has an Exceptionally Inviting blog. 

I love really nice paper letter-press and love sending notes and packages.  Heather was wonderful to work with, and I could not choose one, so I have a nice wardrobe of personal note cards.
Did I mention that as much as I love clean fonts, I also love frilly elegant script.
I think there is room for both and Heather made it easy for me to fall in love with these real cards, real fast!  Do you have a penchant for personalized paper.  If you do, then Heather is your go-to-gal right here.

match maker

Emily Evans Eerdsmans

Shandells sells vintage lights, chic shades, matches, and more…
“Match maker, match maker, make me a match.”
How clever is this little copper edged box of matches which Susan Shandell made for
Emily Evans Eerdmans.  
How sweet to “light” the way with such a perfect match!
Surely, Shandells has something to “strike your fancy”  I hope you find a hot match for your hearth!

ghost-buster give-away

Would like to win a baby ghost chair?   Mrs.Limestone has this fab give-away going on.  “Float” on over and leave a comment…for her.  The Ghost Chair is from all Modern.  

please and thank-you

Nothing pleases me more than a stack of artfully covered books, or the fact that 3 lovely books arrived this week, all “gifts” from various blog admirers.  

Thank-you for thinking of me.  Books are like friends, one can always make room for more.
The more the merrier.

Are these books not the prettiest?  I found them on-line via Haskell Harris, produced by Middleton’s Library.

hedge fund

I would love a row of hedges. Full, lush and private privets as a border.

"shagreen" and bear it

pve design artwork ~ shagreen clutch for j.mclaughlin
Nothing like having a little shagreen accessory to clasp onto.  Shagreen has such a pretty look, and I have always admired it from afar.  Why don’t ya “shagreen” and bear it?  Do you have a shagreen snuff box or clutch?
