l spent a couple of hours last week revisiting my childhood:-) pasting and prettying up this hat box l found at the opshop..... l'm sure most of you have heard of Thomas Kincade. (Painter of Light), anyway l'm totally a fan, and my son bought me a calender of his work one year....it was so lovely l could never toss it out.....see...who says being a hoarder is bad:-)
My lilac decided to flower this week....just to co-ordinate with Thomas's awesome work:-)
Shades of purple to mauve... in minutia.
This very romantic firescreen was found at a garage sale....lt was bargain priced as the seller confessed he absolutely hated it and couldn't wait for it to be gone....well what can l say...it's gone!!
It has a plaque on the back so l was able to do a bit of research on it. Apparently made in England in the mid 20th century. The painting is printed on paper which seems an unusual choice for something that will be sat in front of the FIRE!!
Marie Antoinette print??

Thought you might like to check out the wisteria in full bloom in Mum's backyard...It's climbing over an unused rotary clothesline and you might be able to see the trunk(s) (left of pic) which Mum plaited when it was teeny.
My brother and S.I.Law gave Mum this rusty old car seat and friendship plaque....l just love what she's done with it....
Hope you've enjoyed the post today and are having yourselves an awesome weekend. Thanks so much for stopping by.
Til next time.
