Hello again! How's your week so far? Good I hope! Mine is ambling nicely as there's not a lot out of the ordinary going on this week, thankfully. So while I was doing my usual in town messages on Monday, I popped into the thrift store. I'm not good at delving through 'stuff' but these three stoneware bottles were just what I've been looking for. I wanted some jars to display stems and these fit the bill - they are taller than milk bottles and the narrow neck holds the stems in place together.
And as a book lover I couldn't resist buying two old and worn books by Charles Dickens, Martin Chuzzlewit and The Old Curiosity Shop. I really love the details that were put on these covers~
But back to the stone jars - what to fill them with - the forsythia's not quite in full bloom yet - I'll pick some next week but in the meantime I came across this wonderful idea to make pussy willow stems - you can see the tutorial from Teri of White Sheep farm blog here
Here's where I've put mine - The other thing I mentioned is that I've added the linky follower to my sidebar and i'd be grateful if you could become a follower there too. i'm also trying to get around your blogs and follow you too!
Well dinner's ready and hubby's just home from work - yes I'm trying to blog and make dinner - one of my favs too sweet and sour chicken and boiled rice!
Thanks so much for your comments i love to hear from you!
