December already?

Where does time go anyway?  It seems like summer was just yesterday… now, the waiting for spring begins!!  In the meantime, a little “natural” decorating with things gathered from the farm for me by my brother and youngest nephew… nice of them!  Why didn’t I put those deer antlers in the car??  They would look nice at the base of the pot  …next time!

Mattie Rhodes Center, the beginning of their month long Day of the Dead celebration.  She was the loveliest of the calaveras…

Linen & Lace

Today, linens were laundered (well some of them), dried on the lawn and topped off with a Guacamole blossom.  The jury is still out on which smells better… the linens or the blossom!  Those that weren’t laundered, well… I just couldn’t take the tags and stickers off of them just yet.  There is something very sentimental here… days on Petticoat Lane, shopping with my Mother and friends… the good old days, as downtown KC no longer exists as it was known then.  Peck’s was on Petticoat Lane, but I don’t remember Richman Brothers.  We did always shop at Emery, Bird, Thayer though… loved that place!  Another day all of the fun little stickers and tags will come off, but the laundered linens will still need to be stored in their EBT box!  Funny how, at estate sales there are these finds… unused beauties just waiting for a new home.
