Good Days

Wow, some time has passed! I haven't been around the computer much lately, but as I was cleaning up this morning, my mind started to pretty much think of what I was to type for this blog post. Maybe it was the un-decorating that I was doing? The Easter decor got packed up and put away till next season, and the house took on a little simplistic normalcy again.

So, the blankets are out on the wash line, the windows are open for the second day in a row, and it finally is feeling like a very nice, warm spring. Yay!!!!! The flowers are pushing like mad and I'm getting very anxious to fill up my urns with beautiful flowers, sit on the porch with some iced tea, and smell the freshly mown grass.....ahhhh, it's amazing what some sunshine and some warm weather will do for ya!
So, with that said, I plan to enjoy these nice warm spring like days and try to get some major yard work done, enjoy baseball and softball games with my family, and enjoy my time with those I love.

I will certainly be back, but I see a very busy spring/summer ahead, so I'll post as time allows.

Making a House a Home

Isn't it fun to tweak with your very own treasures you've aquired?
To antique, to collect,to dig through bins at a flea market, to create your own pieces of you....All of this is you making your house a home.

Wood Tones....

Collections ~ Displays....

A home is your canvas, your touches of creations. Colors, vignettes, displays, aromas, and warmth is what defines your own humble abode.

Touches of the outdoors,indoors....

*My favorite posie picked by my favorite little man!

Warm glow of candlelight.....


Warm Wool Rugs....

How do you make your house YOUR home? Would love to hear back from you....and I always love pictures too!!!! :)

Some Easter cuties...

I am a little late in posting this, but I just now am getting around to it. I saw these little lovelies on Colleen's blog a couple weeks back, and I knew immediately that these were a must for a little Easter whimsical display here at my house.

They are just so adorable! Love the chickies face....they are my kind of chick!....lookin' all crazy and out of order! LOL!!!

I have them in one of our Robin's Egg trays with some Easter grass....so bright and fun!

While I was looking at Colleen's awesome fillers, I also had to order a few more sets. I had been eyeing up her Maine Summer set since last summer, so I happily added that one to the order as well as the Bee Skep Spring.

As soon as I pack away the Easter Whimsy, these will be out!

*So excited to get these open and displayed!!!!!

If you've never met Colleen, you NEED TO! Well, bloggy meet her! LOL!!! She is an incredible woman and is a testimony to us all. You will LOVE her and her bowl fillers too!!!! :) Click HERE!!!


Now, I have one more piece of pottery to offer up this week. This one is a fave of mine....I already have a few or I would have kept this one.
It is a Robin's Egg Large Cake Plate.

The base on this is very shapely and gives it such charm! The plate is 9" across and the height of the cake plate is 4 1/4" high. The price is $28.

More Redware and Mouse Pottery and Some Easter Acorns for Sale!

I decided to go ahead and post up the pottery that I am selling next. I may not get the time to do it tomorrow and since I already had my camera handy and the pottery was sitting there, I decided to take a few pics.

First up is a Mouse utensil crock. It is 7" high and 5 1/2" across the top. The bottom is slightly wider, as it very softly draws it towards the top. I call these volcano crocks because of the slight angling inward.

Many uses for this gem....she is quite popular. Her price is $32

Next up is 2 more Rusted Barn bowls. Our rusted barn is a red/brown with lots of black/brown specs and brown undertones...It's quite popular for prim decorating or those that like the sienna/ earthtones.

The small one is 3" high, and 8 1/4" wide. It is priced at $24.

The larger one is 4" high, and 8" wide. This one is priced at $26.

*The small one is towards the front.

*All our pottery is food safe, including dishwasher and microwavable!

Last but not least, I have some lovely pastel acorns up for your consideration just in time for Easter.

*The cost for these is $27 for 13 acorns and it INCLUDES SHIPPING! (Price included with shipping only for acorns)

Email me at: miller5@epix.net to purchase or with any questions.
Thanks so much!
