I’m on a blogging roll. If I try to dye a wool rug I will let you know… I’m the type who would go for a graphic pattern, like a plaid on the diagonal, and make myself crazy in the process. Speaking of pattern… did everyone see Mrs. Blandings’ floor cloth she created for Dining By Design? I painted a floor cloth once and the process about broke my back, but it was a fun alternative to an area rug, less expensive, and pretty durable too.
As I mentioned yesterday it’s almost Mother’s Day, and I now qualify as a gift recipient. The best gift of all is my daughter who qualifies me as such, but a few other little morsels that might bring a smile…
a. Chan Luu b. gold wishbone on tobacco c. bungalow 5 gray lamp, love the pleated shade (I sense a comeback) d. WSHome Meade e. Essie Peach Daiquiri f. John D g. books from my wish list h. a pair of tall cast iron planters, can’t remember where I found the picture
Okay, so the bedside table may not classify as a “little morsel”, but love the lines. Those are all really fun, but in all seriousness… when my husband asked last week what I wanted, I mentioned a bird bath for my garden.
That one is from Wisteria, but I am a bit concerned about the depth of the bowl (mosquito breeding ground?). I saw a great concrete faux bois birdbath at KMart last year (with a shallower basin), so if my gift giver is reading: check KMart first. Oh and one more little item that my sister turned me onto: Cooks Country magazine… a subscription would be welcomed.
