wake up sleepy ones

the rain has kept me inside today
so what did i do?
I woke up some of my
flea-market sleeping beauties
that were packed away
my dishes are pretty much mix and match
odds and ends
just the way I like it
hope your weekend is being filled with a few pretties of your own

GOOD MORNING BEAUTIFUL ONE!!!!

I love the mix and match idea for the home. I do NOT like a matching set of furniture, nor for the cupboards. Though I have all WHITE plates, they at least have different textures and embossed patterns and that is what I LOVE.....oh dear one, we had rain TOO! Just in the morning, however. My dear friend IRINA came over in the afternoon and my garden fountain was gurgling, the house was clean and we talked up IDEAS AND IDEAS for creative fun.

Wishing you and your husband a wonderful fathers' day! Anita

GOOD MORNING KORALEE!!!!!!!!!!

Oh what a SUNNY and BRIGHT DAY we are having out here! I am making things, drawing and reading my bible in FRENCH...I even belted out

QUEL AMI FIDÈLE ET TENDRE

in French, to the top of my lungs, in my studio.

I am making a little card with a girl holding a bluebird....very simple, you know, but fun.

IS THE END OF SCHOOL COMING FOR YOU SOON?

LOVE LOVE LOVE and thank you for such kind words dear one. Anita

It has been rainy back at my home...but here in Reno, hot hot HOT. My life is filled with a few "pretties of my own" in the nature of two little grandkids I am tending for a week (6 and 4)
Don't get much prettier then that eh.

Jennifer @ Studio JRU said...

Sounds like a perfect way to spend a rainy day!! Very pretty! :)

Good morning beautiful one!

What do you have on your mind and heart today? School is almost done for you,right? Oh how relaxed I am these days....so relaxed that I have NO IDEA WHERE to start on my adventure...I guess I need to keep making cards and things to show local shops. I am a bit scared, but it will never happen until I try.

Love, Anita

I'd love to be a fly on the wall at one of your tea parties. I like the look of all the different patterns and how they seem to go together even if they aren't the same. Beautiful!!
