STUFF....And around the house!

Sorry I have been missing for a while, I've been working around the house getting ready for a big garage sale next weekend. The weather here in Athens Georgia has also been wonderful so of course I have been outdoors getting things done and enjoying the nice weather. I have decided tonight to post a few pictures I took outside and a few inside. Enjoy!

This is the table and chairs that most of you know about that I had to have and after much help from you all I decided I NEEDED it, I am so glad I bought it I just love it. Next time I will have it set for a tea party!

Ok, So I have this to die for furniture that is supposed to be indoors but I just love the way it looks outside. I do have the cushions for it and side arms so I am thinking someday I may spray it white and bring it up on the deck or inside. I purchased it from a man that brought it back from Paris France.

The cushions have a hard back and bottom and are stuffed and covered in muslin, same goes for the arms that fit into the slots you see on the arms. The back is cut out to fit.

I have 3 of these tables all have marble tops 2 white one ivory. I had these in my design studio a while back, what am I ever going to do with them. I was thinking of selling 2 on craigs list.

This wonderful bird bath was my moms it is now mine and sits in the front of my house in a garden that I am designing in memory of my mother. I will post a few of the flowers that are blooming then a picture of the front of my house.

Here is a picture of the front door. Jasmine and roses grow on the banister and around the door, it smells so good.

Now for a few things in the house 1st is a wonderful vintage heart pillow and the second one is a pillow that I made from old vintage linens and lace.

Here are 2 pictures that I have in my bathroom and the lace curtains that I purchased from Shabby Foo Foo, I just love them.

And the bathroom curtains. I know they are hard to see but I hope you enjoyed the little tour around the house.

The juxtaposition of the French iron furniture and the outdoor setting is lovely. I adore the rust finish as it looks like an dreamy and surreal.
You have beautiful taste, my friend.

You have such a lovely home, and I am a bit envious of the warm weather you are having. (We had 3" of snow on Tuesday, but it is almost gone.) Your table and chairs are gorgeous. Such a beautiful setting!
