A Curious Assortment...

























































A hodge podge -Definition meaning any jumbled mixture; mess; medley

Yep...that about sums up this post. Actually that sums up my brain right about now. As usual I don't have some insightful clever concise little write-up here. Just an assortment of things. I have been finishing up more orders this week...two more to go and send out. My house is in shabbles. I am behind in some awards and a thank-you for a lovely little gift from a talented gal over at http://barnesfamilylove.blogspot.com/. See that adorable coffee cozy? She makes them. She made a whole whoppin bunch of them and sent them out to a whole whoppin bunch of people. Yeah she's sweet that way! I thank-you and my coffee mug does too! Now my mug is stylin in the toile. Also above there in some order are some more crafts/orders.

Some more playin with the camara in this dark dank dungeon we call home. NO natural light. Also Miss. Andrea from over at http://andreaw123.typepad.com/my_weblog/ is in the process of doing a kitchen redo...she wanted to see my black island. So here she is Andrea. She is a humble one (we were suppose to have a built-in but that is yet another thing the builder messed up)from JC. Penny. I painted her black..she was white. I added a few appliques to her and that is it.

At the bottom are a few thrift finds an adorable milk glass bowl for 1.50!!!! A monogram B linen tea towel. Stands for Bomb jiggety.. pretty sure. Yeah anyway..movin right along. A book with the sweetest illustrations...50 cents. I know I broke the bank on that one. A child's shoe mold and a tole tray. So there you go! Did I just completely confuse you with all the jumbleness? ....I am off to bed...at least I got another post in the same week...by an hour! xoxo, cherry

I love the keys! I went to a flea market on Saturday and the only thing I was specifically looking for was a single skeleton key. Just one. Can you believe in the entire place, not a key to be found? I was really surprised. It just means I need to keep searching. :) Lovely pictures!

Melissa said...

Okay, so I am obsessed with your paint colors. Can you share? What is the color in your kitchen, room with stone fireplace, and there is a past posting where you show a shelf and some butterfly pictures that you painted the frame( love the wall color in that one too!) Are they all the same color??? I need help. Thanks.
By the way, I love your style. So cute!
