"No Rest for the Weary"

These are some of the latest pics I have taken at Cottage Panache. I need to take some of my very recent finds. I'll get right on it!!! After the laundry, cleaning, shopping and cooking! I'm sure that I'm forgetting something...oh yeah I need to figure out what bills I CANNOT pay! JK! Trying so hard to keep it together!
I love these pale robin's egg blue china set that I found at a nearby Estate sale!
This awesome table has yet another leaf to it! It's huge!
This is another area in the back cottage!
I can never resist the cute vintage child's shoes. I wish I had time to put the vintage flower arranging book to use! Maybe in my FREE TIME!!!
Ah! To be able to garden again! Here's what everyone needs to start. This is a willow garden trudge that comes with a set of garden tools. My Dad always had a garden in Michigan where I grew up and I loved helping with it. The best way to eat a tomatoe is straight from the garden with a sprinkle of salt and pepper. If you have never tried fried green're really missing out!


  1. Great pictures-hope things are getting better...We all know that finances suck and will for some time to come..The only thing I can say is that we are all in the same boat...My boat is just taking on water and starting to sink, but I will try to swim to shore-of course it would be my luck that I get sucked into a water current or get my head gashed on some rocks....Good Lord I think I'm losing it...Hang in there!!! Love Tiina...

  2. Your displays look great and at least when you are doing what you love, it is not so much like work! Keep the Faith!

  3. Thanks girlies, all I can say is I'm still kickin and I refuse to give up. Work has never been so rewarding as it is now. I just wish I had more time and energy. There are some days when I think about how nice it would be to just to stay home again and do Motherly and wifey (Is that a real word?!) things! But I know that I would go mad if I didn't have another outlet. As I have always said...It's a sickness but I don't want to be cured! At least not yet. The search is energizing and the sell is elating!

  4. Everything looks great. I am so hoping to come your way soon if I can somehow fit in the time to drive there. I understand too what you are going through. Just like your last post, this too shall pass. Happy Memorial Day, T
