Ahhh - the sun finally came out! I can't tell you how lovely it is. Yesterday I hung three bird feeders and our backyard is a frenzy of swooping and chirping. I have all the windows thrown open so I can feel the fresh air and hear all garden sounds.
I wish I could remember the name of those daffodils. About seven years ago I got a notion to order about eight bobillion bulbs. They are the prettiest apricot color. I was going to fill the new pale pink hobnail vase (courtesy of Kelly) with them but then I couldn't bear to cut too many from the front walkway.
Kelly came by on Monday with bags of goodies for me. It's always a good day when she decides to reorganize.
She gave me the pretty hobnail vase (along with the monogrammed glass the daffodils ended up in) and a pretty tote bag. Actually She gave a lot of other wonderful things but I wanted to show these particular items.
How cute is this tote bag? It's made up of vintage linens and a pretty floral fabric. It looks like they used part of an embroidered, crocheted pillowcase and a crocheted drink napkin.
Perfect for carrying around magazines or books and a great use of vintage linens.
