Good Morning from the Country

  Good morning from the Country.  I just realized I haven't posted in several months. Wow, where has the time gone? There isn't enough time in the day, week, month or year to accomplish everything I want to do!

  So what have I been up to?  Staying busy, painting, junking, painting...  The weather is starting to get nice and I am starting to plant flowers.  My vintage scale is always ready for a plant.  I decided to go with a  Boston fern this year from a local greenhouse {always buy local}.  The impatients don't make it thru the summer heat on the front porch.

  
 

  We have several vintage bikes on our property, each has a bicycle basket so I can plant flowers in them.  Everyone who goes by our home knows our property, by the bikes with the flowers in the baskets! I can't pass up an old bike, especially with a basket.  

 
 

  I will be buying the liners and the wave petunias will be going in.  See why I can't resist? 

 

  All of this flower planning has made me thirsty.  Time for tea and the studio is calling my name.  Painting and French typography to finish.

  Thank you all so much for spending time with me in the Country.

  Peace, love & Junk,

  geniece

A February Refresh

Hello February,

  So lovely to see you each year, February.  We are in the midst of winter in the Midwest and thinking of spring.  What to do on a day in February when its sixty-seven degrees outside?

  A refresh at your antique space.  I know what you're thinking...I spent the last two beautiful days outside painting and waxing, so we needed to drop off all of our hard work.
 

  A vintage fireplace mantel, antique andirons, logs and a vintage fireplace screen.  

 

  I picked up several vintage bone Chiba tea cops and saucers at an auction.  They look lovely in this old wall shelf turned on its side and painted antique white. 

 

  Starting to think spring and adding some colorful touches.  I custom mixed the blue milk paint and call it bell bottom blue! 

  
 

  As with any antique space, it is always evolving and changing as items are bought and sold! 

  Thanks for stopping by today! Have a wonderful spring season! 

  Peace, love & Junk,

  Geniece
