March is more than half over and I forgot to show you my mantle...
Two of my antique lanterns atop a favorite antique teal green box
A favorite Maggie Bonanomi Country Sampler Club project complete with antique paper
Two Maggie Bonanomi topiaries with my favorite folk art box and a great little mercury glass votive holder
And a Stacy Nash Country Sampler Club project
When March rolls around, I often think of sheep - I think it is the old saying
"In like a lion and out like a lamb"
(let's hope that it holds true!)
The glare on the glass detracts from the beauty of a piece that I am so blessed to own
Lori Brechlin of Notforgotten Farm created this wonderful paper cutting that she then painted with watercolors. The shading in the sunflowers is gorgeous.
Maggie Bonanomi daffodils made in a class years ago.
(Can you tell that I am a big fan ;)
Well, I have a question that I am hoping that some of you might be able to help me with...
Our oldest son has decided to change majors and universities.
And so, he and I are off on a whirlwind trip to another part of the country.
We will be visiting Portland, Oregon; Corvallis, Oregon; Denver, Colorado and Fort Collins, Colorado.
We won't have much time, but if you have a favorite place to eat, see or visit, I would love to hear!
( I might be able to squeeze in one quilt, wool, stitchery or antique store if it is really worth the trip ;)
Please do share!
I am trying not to think about this too much as these places are so very far from Chicago, but more than anything, I want my son to be happy :) We leave this weekend and it should be very interesting as I have never been to Oregon or Colorado.
When we get back, it will be time to take March down and decorate for April. Time sure does fly!
