-Signs of Spring already, who else has noticed all the blooms that seem to be opening out everywhere?

-Finding the perfect spot to hang a thrift store find, beautiful watercolour painting done by a school art teacher in 1955. Isn't it beautiful? I love it especially as I have a love for magnolia trees and don't have the room on our section for one so this is the next best thing.

-Trying to decide what to make with this fabric that was also a thrift store find, maybe a small picnic blanket or a dress for miss E.

Hope you had a great weekend.


  1. I love Magnolias, we do not have a tree, but there is one down the road. I love this time of year when the buds are just starting to unfold, cheers Marie

  2. They are some lovely Op Shop Finds - The painting is beautiful

  3. Gorgeous painting!
