Hanging around home...



Another set of shutters up, this time on the side porch...yeah! Little by little. Arent they beautiful?



Searching for my 4 set bread pan floral...had to cut down a few ferns to find it! Well worth the hunt wouldnt you say?



Shabby & chic tiles gifted to ME yesterday by a precious friend and customer who has got great taste in gift giving, I know I must be hard to buy for! I want Julie V. to know that these will go into my workroom that I am re-creating.I LOVE THEM SO MUCH, well I adore them, thank you.



In with the new and out with the old...Mr. Bed of Roses also likes to hang onto old things...thats one reason he keeps me around I'm sure of it. This was HIS families first tv/radio/record player of course black and white tv, and they were one of the first in the area to get tv.
It has ages of dust, probably since he took ownership 20 years ago? (been in the garage). He is co-operating about getting rid of things. Its one of those if I have to then so does he.

Congratulations to his nephew Casey N. who is now the new owner, he either hauled it home or dumped it off a cliff somewhere, his choice.

Working on Halloween today...kind of fun.

Well, I guess we can't keep everything. Sometimes I'd like to try. That ribbon is so gorgeous. Mimi

Oh Brenda, that tile is beautiful. It's plum and cream. I can't wait to see what you do with it. And yes, I love your shutters, you have the cutest house in West Haven.

Oh Brenda, your home is just looking beautiful! You are most welcome for the gift, not sure if you looked at the back of them, they are actually coasters... Hope your birthday was a happy one, I will email you the photos I took at your shop! Julie

Yes, I knew they were coasters...I just never use a coaster and my mind goes right to How will I do something fun with these beauties.

I don't think I have ever seen that tv set of dad's...Have I? So cute, I wish I had room for it but It will have to live in my heart. :)

Shellie I bet you have never seen this tv, its been buried in the garage. I had never opened it up until we were getting rid of it, and then i though...how dang cute!

Hi B, love those Shabby Tiles, and the TV - wow, I know I've seen those oldie's before - probably in my grandparents house. Isn't it great how technology has advanced? I wouldn't even know how to turn that one on. Go check out my Blog, and tell Shel, because I photographed the B-topper sets, and want you see what the finished product is like! BTW - LOVE Halloween, and we're starting on that too around here. Fall is the best! I want some of that ribbon dearie, I am emailing you right now! xoxo Happy Sunday, Sher

Oh Brenda, I didn't know you never use coasters... what do you set your diet coke on when you put it on a table? I always put a coaster down so my wood doesn't get wet... just assumed everyone does... well, I am sure you will make something pretty out of them...
