I found the basket at Three French Hens, during our day trip, last Friday.
I filled it with silk lavender from our basement storage.
Lavender grows in our side garden. I hope to harvest and dry enough for the basket this coming Summer.
After we bought the round ottoman for the hearth room, the room seemed a little crowded with the bench in front of the fireplace.
The bench, with woven seat and barley twist legs, has found a new home on the landing where I have tried several different tables and benches, without finding the right fit.
This new addition seems to be the right one.
The cabinet crown was a discovery, found at Artichoke Annie’s Antiques, Columbia MO, during our recent drive to the lake. I love these pieces of the past used in different applications than originally intended.
The mirror is a quick fix, while I look for another. I bought it about 15 or so years ago at Old Time Pottery. Just before I made the purchase I saw a mirror, exactly like this one, advertised in a magazine. The price in the advertisement was around $200+shipping, as I remember. I paid $30 for mine.
It was formerly in one of the bathrooms of our farm home.
I’m not sure this post is a “wowser”. I enjoyed making these few changes so decided to add them to Kim’s Wow Us Wednesday.
This is a week of several appointments, consuming our time. I put this post together, very quickly, Monday morning (21st), before driving to St Louis for doctor visits (good reports for both of us).
I have another post ready for Tablescape Thursday, I’ll publish Wednesday.
I’ll be around to visit as time allows.
As I prepare to begin the 5th year at the Back Porch, I believe I am going to try composing several posts in one or two days, for publishing at different times to see how that works for me.
Of course I enjoy fly by the seat of my pants, spur of the moment posts, too. So my little plan for more organized blogging may fall by the wayside quickly.
As always, your visits to Back Porch Musings are very much appreciated!
