Old-fashioned White


Hi! Oh I have to take a moment before I start to paint the LR! So how's everyone's week been, hmmm?


I accomplished nothing today! I was off to buy a book by a fav author, stop at the garden store to buy herbs for my own herb garden...and had to run home, forgot something, yaddah-yaddah. So I am painting the LR instead...try again tomorrow, even though it's Saturday?


One of my fav blogs, A Beach Cottage has a post today all about Sarah's farmers' market in AU.


Her market seems a bit more exotic than mine, but I do love serving fresh local food to friends and family.
Since this weekend is, however, dedicated to house painting I almost skipped the market this week...

but was lured in by the prospect of the first cut field flowers....


Snapdragons!



Big tubs of old-fashioned white snapdragons....


Who could resist?


And, oh okay, a box of Italian deep fried artichoke hearts. Man, are they wonderful! Reheat and dip in a make-do remoulade of mayo, parm, garlic, worcestershire sauce. Yummy yum yum.
Climbing up and down the paint ladder will work off the calories right? (oh geez I hope so! Because I just ordered new swim suits!)...

This is an old Pennsylvania farm basket I keep in the car to hold my market goodies...


I think it needs a coat of white paint along with my walls? This is photoshopped to tone down the real color....


Someone already "ruined" it with orange-brown paint so I think it's a yes.....


Have a fun weekend, pray for sun. And waves....

  2. There is something restive about white. A fresh, clean white restores the soul.

    I'm sure your paint job turned out beautifully! I just hope you didn't exhaust yourself!
