A lovely day...

Today was a lovely day in so many ways.

Ginny Henson, a wonderful folk artist and antique collector had a sale at her home today.
It was just as I expected ~ gorgeous.

Her gardens were so pretty with bits of folk art here and there.

Such pretty views at every turn.

Inviting you to stay and linger...

Inside her house was just as inviting,
beautiful antiques and folk art at every turn.

Ginny even baked some delightful treats!

wonderful textures and colors...

Can I just move in? :)

So many lovely items for sale, it was hard to make a decision...

This heavy, iron architectural star came home with me.
And found a home in front of our fountain.

This gourd birdhouse made by Ginny found a new home on an iron bird hook, next to my lilacs. 

A large tin rabbit is at home in my strawberry patch ~ currently hiding behind the sunflowers...

Ginny always sells beautiful live topiaries. I'm not so good at indoor plants, but couldn't resist these little shoe forms filled with succulents and a Japanese kokedama ball in a vintage icecream dish.
(Wish me luck in their care ;)
And the star brick and glass cloche came home with me too :)

My new house plants are right at home on my kitchen windowsill above the sink to keep me company while washing dishes.

This wonderful lamp with tiny reflector is still waiting for just the right spot.

And Ginny's handmade sweet butterfly out of antique linen is right at home here on my little quarter-sawn oak cabinet.

You can find Ginny's creations here.
And Ginny's Facebook page is here.

Thank you Ginny for such a lovely day!
The perfect way to spend my birthday :)
