Let Me Offer You A Chair

Take one afternoon in April...

Add one part decorating loving woman...

Take away any extra time to do decorating...

Add back in a minute or two because decorating calms crazy decorating loving woman...

Gather some child chairs...

And you have a calmer decorating loving woman...AMEN.

Silver milk can with chartreuse painted hydrangeas... 

Can you feel the calm?

Put chair on top of old, dusty, rusty suitcase...this is not rocket science...

But it should be...

Ahhhhh...

Done.

I am having a real love affair with cotton mattress ticking...

And ruffles...and ruffles made of burlap...shut~up!

Roosters, cookbooks and red dictionaries...the perfect booster seat...

I randomly opened this cookbook...and what was on the page?  

Chicken recipes...

A lovely perch...



Chicken feet...

Have a wonderful Thursday...I hope that you may find little calming moments in your day.

Hi Ramona--I love, love hydrangeas. We had them in my yard growing up and they always make me calm and happy. My youngest daughter had them as her wedding bouquet last year too!

Cotton mattress ticking reminds me of my years at Girl Scout camp--those cot mattresses were covered it it. Thanks for the little trip down memory lane--that's very calming too...

Amen Sister! I love your vignette there. Now, did you really paint the hydrangea?

Your little hen deserves a safer place to sit, I think. :)
