Now today is a beautiful day!
Low 80's with big fluffy clouds!
This is the first day that I have walked
outside and not been accosted
by a blast of heat and humidity.
I actually brought all of my herbs
inside this weekend
and placed them in the kitchen window.
That of course prompted a lot of other changes
and out came the camera!
I had to have something to do
while I was washing the heck out of my bed-skirt!
My parsley is actually doing well
despite the intense heat we have had.
I bet I will be more likely to snip off
some while I am cooking
now that it is here in easy reach.
I love the way my Thyme
looks in my copper pot.
The Basil hasn't fared as well I'm afraid.
I am going to cut it down tonight
and use a lot of it in a
tomato, basil and mozzarella
salad with dinner.
Notice my new rooster in the background?
Isn't he the cutest?
And, see my Blue Willow platter
popping in thru the corner?
I just love it with all of the copper!
I found a few platters for sale
on one of my favorite online sites
starting at $185.00.
I think I did pretty well for only $13.00.
Don't you think so?
I think it is all coming together nicely!
I had a plant that used to sit in the window.
It was getting out of control
so I replanted it in my large
Blue and White fish bowl that I bought.
Now it can hang out in the living room
and grow to it's hearts content!
Please remind me to water it!
On the Buffet side of the kitchen
I made a few changes too.
I always have trouble with that area.
It seems that no matter what I put there
it ends up being the drop off zone for
mail, phone chargers, purses (mine), etc...
But, I still like it to be pretty.
While I was replanting my Pothos plant,
which is the easiest plant in the world to take care of btw,
I snipped a few stems off
and stuck them a glass jelly jar
inside my copper watering can.
Remember when you used to start plants that way?
Does anyone still do that?
I remember as a kid being amazed
when the roots would appear!
I tried to keep the buffet top simple
with a white platter, my cutie cow,
the copper can and the copper planter.
I weeded out all of the aqua dishes
that I had up above and kept only the white ironstone.
Nice and neat!
For now that is...
Until Next Time,
Come back and see where else
my Blue and White is appearing,
