I have always loved "different" art. My Amy was the
same way. My handsome son Richie had a "different" art
also....SPORTS and MOVIES. His brain is like a file that
can answer any question you have about sports or
movies. He was in plays, speech competitions, and
Shakespeare in the Park...so he is a "different" artist also.
One day, about twelve years ago, I was looking around at
an estate sale, and their my Yvette layed...in a dirty old box
and a pink dot that said .50 cents.
I told her she was beautiful and she was going to a
home that would love her.
Amy loved her also and so Yvette took turns living with me
Our guest room has plenty of light and sun light floods
it during the day but the pictures were not taking very
In the mirror you can see my antique wall hat holder.
Also some of my vintage purses...you will see it up close
in part two.
The picture is an antique...
It is signed by the artist in french and it looks like it was
signed in pencil.
If you can imagine the owner of the shop wanted
$250.00. Well over the months I would go in and drool
over it. Then something amazing happened...she started
lowering the prices of it and everything in her shop.
ARE YOU SETTING DOWN...I BOUGHT IT FOR
I love to lay on the bed and dream about Paris and
walking over an old bridge just like that.
I painted the headboard to match a huge mirror on
the wall facing the foot of the bed. I couldn't find
the paint can to tell you the color Mr. Simply and I
painted this room but it was the rage about 6 years ago.
There is a scalloped wide border of maroon and
white roses. It is
You can see my vintage phone. It still has the rubber
wires with it...no numbers you dial...you just picked
up the receiver and had a certain number of clicks
that identified you to the operator. I use to collect
vintage phones. I love them. I am looking for a
vintage tin toy phone in red.
The black hat beside the phone was Mr. Simply's Granny
Montgomery's hat. I feel honored to have it and I have
her black shoes. She was precious. I also painted the two
shelves to match the headboard...they come together at the
corner of the room...and the cross hangs in the middle.
I was not one of the fortunate ones who received large
pictures of relatives and when I saw this beautiful vintage
picture in this huge, heavy, ornate frame for $10.00 I
snapped her right up. Now I tell every one she is the
Parisian lady who rents my guest room until we have
company and then she flies back to Paris for a few days...lol
NOT THE FRAME BUT THE PICTURE IS AT LEAST
100 YEARS OLD...I don't understand a family selling a
family photo like that to strangers.
I am looking for a french mail box to put mail in
As you can tell I LOVE ROOSTERS AND CHICKENS.
Some are collectable, some are made from cloth, some
are patriotic, and some shabby chic. They are in every
room but the bathrooms.
Thank you for dropping by to see me today.
And now let's share some words from PSALMS.
i waited patiently for the LORD;
and he inclined unto me, and
heard my cry.
He brought me up also out of an
out of the miry clay,
and set my feet upon a rock,
and established my goings,
HE PUT A NEW SONG
IN MY MOUTH.
Psalm 40: 1-3a
A new song in my mouth,
keeps SPRING ALIVE IN MY HEART
AND KEEP YOU UNTIL WE BLOG AGAIN.
REMEMBER...YOU HAVE A NAME AND
YOU ARE IMPORTANT AND LOVED BY
JESUS AND ME.
JESUS CARES ABOUT THE LITTLEST OF THINGS
AND THE BIGGEST OF THINGS. HE JUST
WANTS TO BE INCLUDED IN YOUR LIFE.
HAVE A SUGAR SWEET DAY
