This & That!

Posting just a few little things around the house!
Last week I painted this cheese server with Annie Sloan Chalk Paint "Provence". I love this color so much, I will be using it as an accent in other projects!
*I made the little green leaf when I was 5 yrs. old!
I am thinking the hutch doors & drawers would look beautiful painted Provence!
Matches this vintage sailboat dish too!
Added a little nest under a cloche.
This is some of my pretty glass paperweights I have collected over the years.
I forgot to show you the FAMILY plaque (twin head board!) hung up. Love it! It is in my dining room.
I took the chicken eggs out of the pink drawer and now have it on my kitchen counter filled with vintage plates & silver...
and added some darling farm girl kitchen towels hanging on my stove!
Okay, one more silly thing! I used pink bar soap "Zote" in making laundry soap today! I love making laundry soap as most of you know! 
Hubby just walked in and said "did you mop the floors today?" No, why? "Because it smells like it!" Nope, just made laundry soap! It always smells so fresh and clean! :)
Just keeping busy!
Have a wonderful day darl'ins!

PS...a little shout out to Darla & Patti! What a wonderful treat to me you!

Oh wow, I love everything you have pictured here. Such loveliness.

Nice touch on the drawer to put the plates and silverware in it. Perfect!!

I have a "country" dish cloth I found that says "a cowgirl should never weigh more then her horse"
and
"does this saddle make me look fat"

I think they are so funny

Everything is so stunning. I love the fact that you still have your childhood pickle dish. It is adorable and such a wonderful heirloom. Somewhere in time you will have a grandchild or great or maybe great,great . . .that will hold it in their hands and feel the love you put into it as a child. Your collections are outstanding, thanks for sharing, Connie

Annabelle said...

Everything is so damn cute. Love the blog and the photos are awesome.

I have not come across this paint before - but am a fan of Farrow and Ball - do you know this?

Pop over to mine for a giveaway - good luck! xx

Julie Harward said...

You have so many pretty things...all my taste! Love that you still have that leaf! Loved the towels and I have a glass chicken, it's a deep red. Thanks for showing and telling, loved it! (I am going private, if you care to follow, come and leave me your email) :D

craftyles said...

I love your this and that's, especially the great drawer with plates. The turqoiuse chalk paint is a really great color. I haven't tried that one yet. Pretty things today!

Where did the wonderful towels come from?

Julie said...

Everything is so cute! I particularly love the pink laundry soap - my favorite color. Maybe it would make me enjoy doing laundry a little more. Or, at least make me hate doing it less

pink4me said...

The day I made the laundry soap my husband came in from work and ask if I had been cleaning, I told him the same thing," making laundry soap ", I love that stuff and the smell, oh my how wonderful it is!! Tha.ks so much for giving the recipe girly!!
