Don't you love it when you get something old that is every bit as nice as anything new could ever be?
My sweet daughter-in-law and son gave me a Norman Rockwell Poster book for Christmas. There are 20 posters in it and are 12 x 16 frame-able prints. I have always loved Norman Rockwell and my d-i-l knows that, so when she saw it in a Thrift Store she knew it was just the thing for me. And she was SO right! Thanks, Maranetta and Greg!
This is so perfect for the Winter time and it is such a touching picture as well, as are most of Norman Rockwell's pictures.
Somebody finally got a good photo of my son and his family. You can't tell by the photo, but they are are all tall. Greg is about six foot two-inches and his wife is about five foot ten-inches. I'm just over five feet tall, so I feel like a real shorty when I'm with them. Even my grand kids, soon to be nine and ten will be taller than I am.
Now for something new. I have been wanting a cloche for a long time and I have not seen one in any of the stores that I have been to. But my friend Millie, of the blog Wreathmaker, happened to have one that she was kind enough to sell to me at cost. Thank you so much, Millie. She is a craft er, so she goes to North Dakota and Minnesota frequently. The USA has a lot of things that we cannot find here in Canada.
It was so fun, putting it all together. First came the vintage table runner and then a couple of old books, a vintage jar filled with white candles and white bird and candle holder with a red candle. I filled the little glass dish with the glass lid with shells and rocks that we found on the beach in Washington state, so it's a vintage-nostalgic scene and I am loving it.
One more thing before I am through today, while shopping at Homesense this week, I came across a bag of potato chips for sale, that came in a burlap bag. I bought it, more for the burlap bag, although the chips were pretty yummy!
I put a plant inside of it and stuck it in my vintage planter that I painted white. I think it looks pretty cute.
Have a wonderful weekend my friends. The snow is softly falling right now, but we are promised sunshine for the rest of the weekend. I am enjoying the Winter weather, are you?
