a bit of therapy...

Well...I thought today I'd get out of the house, try and get my mind off things...As you can see my Amaryllis is blooming! The sun is shinning and it's a good day...

I thought I'd go to one of my antique shops for a bit of 'retail therapy'...is that bad? I would walk by something and Bennie would pop in my head.."oh, she had one of those.." But I had fun, found some good things for the store! The shabby sconces, rewired and ready for someones wall.

I just love silver! I found these 'loved' salt and pepper shakers.. we actually use some silver flatware everyday. I think it adds a beautiful touch to everyday life.


I thought this was interesting! A vintage wine bottle!! I don't know, maybe it's the color that caught my eye. I love faded turquoise!
Hope your week is going well..I picked up some more beveled glass so I will be making some 'Valentines' pieces. You gotta get back up on that horse, right?!

I love shopping therapy! I think I'm in need of some right now!
I wanted to let you know I'm giving away a pendant for Valentine's Day in case you want to enter.
Take care!
