Sister's Garden






Every time I shoot this same scene from the back of Sisters', I am always amazed at the beauty of each season...I want to live there...in the middle of all that nature...ahhh, to dream!

OK, now I'm awake...I love this beautiful oak mantle piece, can you imagine the house it lived in back in the day and why is it not still in that beautiful home, I'm afraid to guess. Next, an old pine dry sink, once used to clean veggies and bake the breads, everything the ordinary housewife did to make life sustainable for her family. A painted green Eastlake chest of drawers, has the look of a designer piece that can be put anywhere in the home for multiple purpose, cool color. And lastly, the corner cupboard, in a cool, light, mint green. Our frugal ancestors utilized every inch of space in a room, even the corners. These are very popular today, for the same reason...we have a lot of stuff and space is not always available, lots of dishes and glasses to be stored out of the way.
Cool stuff, give the girls a call if you are interested, they'd love to load 'er up.
