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.

Inspiration on a Rainy Day

 I was out and about the other day and found these wonderful items.  That clock would look great in my new house but I am holding out until we actually see it built.  I so afraid I am going to get things that I won't have room for.
Do you remember this phone, my grandmother had this exact phone!  Hers even started with GA.  "One ringy dingy"!

I loved all the French script and french items

And this has won my heart, I keep visiting her to ponder should I take her home

 Loving these shutters, I am looking for the right pair to go over my fireplace.

Sharing these lovely finds with some fun parties.  Have a great day!  Di

Fall Beach Time

A sweet stroll down memory lane at the beach this weekend.This sweet church, Pawleys Island Chapel, is the smallest church on Pawleys Island.  My husband's cousins daughter was married here.

 This weekend another cousins daughter was married.  Both of these girls were in my daughters wedding.  I can't believe our girls are all grown up.  Funny how that happens.
My family has spent a lot of time traveling to 
Pawleys.  I learned so much from them.
Their homes have always been open to us.  

We have been through the tides of change with them by our side.

As our family ages we see many of our love ones pass away, reminding us of lifes' journey.  We spent some time with our aunt who has Alzhemiers.  She taught me not to take life so seriously and to let yourself have silly moments.  Like jumpling into the tide water with your clothes on!

This is The Pelican Inn, one of the orginal 1860's Island Homes

 It was a gray day but it didn't stop us from enjoying the views.
Come sit a spell and breathe the salt air.  What are your favorite family moments?

The Perfect pumpkin


 It started with a visit to a beautiful church filled with pumpkins for sale, two cute grandkids and a crisp fall air.  We had to examine every pumpkin in the yard.  The kids wondered if they were for riding!

The boys had so much fun running through the yard touching every pumpkin to make sure they got the one they wanted.

 I put my picks from the pumpkin patch on my front porch with a beautiful crafted pumpkin I won.

It's this pumpkin by Popple River Primitives just perfect
