Summer Whites


Summer Whites
I have been painting so much I almost forgot to fix my mantle and hang the birds.  I painted the birds last month and finally hung them.
 It's a sweet change to highlight my my white showcase of shells!

 I am gathering my courage to paint the brick!  Meanwhile, I adding more touches of white to the room.
 The shopping cart is filled with my market basket and soft colors of flowers
I also moved my ironstone pitcher and filled it with lavendar.  I recently found this sweet converted oil lamp.  The white shade is what captured my attention of course the half price sale at the estate sale didn't hurt either!

Tools of the Trade

They have held herbs, mixtures and healing powders
 The colors are bold and the pattern beautiful

 These jars are newer but when we went to Salem-Winston, NC we went to old Salem and visited an Apothecary shop
 Now, these bottles are the real thing.  Can you image the healing power that were found through natural herbs?
 Now I am sure that it was hit and miss but in their time they were life savers




 Love these herbs
 The tools of the trade are so awesome
As a nurse it was so cool to see all the tools of the trade.  Di Ivy and Elephants Fine Craft Guild
