Sister's Garden






Wonderful stuff and pure torture...Barb knows how to do it to ya! When I walked into Bloom, I was stopped dead in my tracks with this gawgus chandelier. Deb, that works the shop for Barb is trying to figure out how to stretch her normal ceilings to fit this huge piece...skylight maybe...or maybe handy for chips and dips over a dining room table. When ya just ain't got a 12 ft. ceilings...you drool alot more (welcome to my world)...


This drawered piece looks like a draftsman's chest for draft papers or paintings and prints, but how cool is that, filled to the brim with jewels...such a Christmasy flair, with the big silver mirror reflecting the sparkle.


Then there 's this awesome floral display piece, very old and in excellent condition and a steal...I checked the price. And as always, chippy white cupboards, I especially like the green underneath, what a statement and no glass in the doors, so many fun things you can do when there isn't any. Mine have old lace curtain pieces hanging in them...such fun we have as woman in today's decorating fancies.

Girl-you are whipping me like a step-child. OMG-do I want that garden piece. Yes I do. I just don't know how to get it to Dallas along with the map/drafting/gizmo cabinet. Do you know the way to I-O-way?

You have great taste! I'll have to fight you for both the chandelier and the drafing cabinet.

What wonderful pieces! You are just filling my dreams with pure exotica! I seem to love everything you choose!

Great to wander here as always and thank you for your thoughts on my blog. It's been a rough few weeks, (as you probably sensed), but the seas are settling now with smiles again!

I will be glad too when the Year 12students start their final exams in a couple of weeks! It's been tense back at school!

But my photo wandering keeps me sane!
