What is your chair crush?

CHAIRS...YES I LOVE CHAIRS.  AT one point my husband threatened, yes threatened that if I brought one more home, he would have to throw one out!
All the ones in this collage are mine, except the top left one!  Of course, there are many more in the house.


So, when One Kings Lane asked me what my chair crush was, I didn't have one moment of hesitation!  I went to their accent chairs page  and found so many that I loved!  Do you see a theme going on here!  I love a wing back chair and a club chair.

I do love a wing back chair!
This is one of my favorites because it reminds me of my love seat

So What is your Chair Crush?

Red, White and Blue, Saluting our Heroes

 Thank you to our veterans!  The men in my mom and dad's families served in all the wars.  I am so proud to say I am an Army Brat.  My dad served this country in the Korean War, World War II and helped ready for Vietnam.
 Red, White and Blue

I am so proud of my grandson, Ro.  He proudly sports the medal that my dad presented him as a baby.
 My dad was not doing well and wanted my grandson to have one of his medals.  He gave him he medal of honor!  Ro tells everyone how brave his POPS was and how he fought so we could bring freedom to Europe.

Here they are when Ro was little and dad gave him the medal!  My dad passed away soon after this.

 We salute our heroes past and present!

Have a wonderful week

Do you want to build a snowman

Do you want to build a Snowman?!
This is what I woke up to this morning, here in Asheville, North Carolina!  I loved it.  Being from Florida, I have wonder of this crisp blanket before me.

 I captured some images around the yard and built a snowman!  The snow was creamy white and soft and fluffy.  For this Florida girl is was fun.

 The flowers captured the flakes and were blanketed with a frosting of sugar snow.

 As I wandered down the street the white made everything charming.  I thought of this lovely quote. 

Still signs of fall mixed with the scenes of snow

Loving the rusty scale against the snow
 We stayed inside afterwards and started working on some projects

My grandson and I are hooked on the movie Frozen.  I am making a button  book Winter scene.  Here is a sneak peak of what we made...not Olaf but a button snowman

I hope your weekend is fun and maybe some sun will peak your way

Vintage Wishes

A little metal work I found a one of the local shops.  This is from one person's collection and I fell in love with the simplicity of the items.
 These stacks of papers are pharmacy receipts.  I admired them from a far and thought they were wood!

 The iron urn in the cloche is holding a sweet little birds nest
 And the apothecary jars hold secrets from days gone by.
Sometimes the simple things bring a sweet joy to us, I hope your day was good and your week is filled with sunshine.
