(Sweet New Styles...Yummeeee!)

Well...I don't know about you all, but this week has absolutely flown by!  I can't believe today is Friday!  Where did the past five or six days go?  I feel like I just got back from having a grand old time junking and slumming last Saturday and here it is almost the weekend again!  WOW!  Time is just going by too, toooo fast these days!

It's HOT here!  (I'm still waiting for SOMEONE to send me a little bit of cheese to go along with my WHINE!)  Our grass is fried and we are trying desperately to save our shrubs.  Forget the flowers...they passed a long time ago.  I've moved all my hanging plants into our garage and leave the florescent lights on...  Even with that they are suffering...especially the Ferns! :(  I'm probably NOT going to be showing you pictures this Fall of my La Chaumière de Briarwood...unless of course you want to see a bunch of brown dirt and crunchy looking hay (that's what we've got right now)...
(Here They Are!)

Just a quick Post today to show you the latest group of bottles soon to be uploaded to my website.  What fun!  Squeezed in making just few in between doing some serious work hand painting my favorite of all flowers, THE PINK ROSE!  Hope to have more of my finished stuff uploaded by tomorrow!  I HATE taking pictures and writing descriptions for LEAST FAVORITE THING to do that is associated with my biz!

OK I'm off for the day.  I'm hoping to talk my MISTER into hitting the estate sale circuit with me again on Saturday...we'll see.  Remember he's back in school and so carving time out to study is a priority around here.  If my guy can't go with me I'm certainly not afraid to brave the 105 degree temps alone!!! :)

Hope your day is amazing!

Love to you...

I like cheese with my whine, too. Would you like me to send some
of my favorite specialities???!!!!
Love your new bottles!! Different
sizes will be great to arrange in groupings, and the trims are sooo
pretty....thanks for making these for us glass bottle lovers!
It is hot here also, but the daily rains have cooled things off and our yard has perked up. Hope you get some relief from the awful temps out your way..
Have a fun weekend "junking" and hope you find lots of new treasure to "re-create"....
(((hugs))) Love, Francy

I so wanted to go garage saleing today, but I just can't get going. I am sure it is the heat. Oh well, there is always next week. Yes, the weeks go too fast!

Hi Rebecca, and thanks for the visit this morning... you always brighten my day!... I whined in a post about the heat here too and how my garden and I had pooped out, then I ended up deleting it as I thought about how "whiney" it must have sounded... (can I get some cheese with our whine too???)... LOVE those bottles and I am especially loving my very own that you created!... hoping my gorgeous garden sign arrives today... sending much love to you... you can always "whine" to me!!! xoxo Julie Marie PS This has been a really weird weather year for everyone it seems...

I sampled some awesome cheese at Martin's the other day. They were pretty proud of it, too...$14.99 a pound! I passed on it, so I can't send you any...but it was delish!

Beautiful work, as always. And I'm looking forward to hearing about what you find tomorrow.

Hope you have a fun weekend!

I love the tote in your previous post... can't wait to see what you do....

I do my share of whining, but I guess I just do it to my hubby and not on my blog! :)
Again, everything you create is beautiful!
Thanks for asking, but we've just gotten a little bit of some much needed rain and that's all. I do believe we'll be fine.
Be a sweetie,
Shelia :)

Yikes, that's hot. Here we are enjoying only low 80's, pleasant. Your new bottles will be beauties when you are done with them. I agree where is the time going?

I prefer for my husband to go with me junking too. We love doing it together, plus I like it when he drives and I point. LOL. Love these bottles. I'm always grabbing pretty bottles at sales.
