A little more lovely to share from around the house today.
My sister has been purging her closets, and up for sale
is this custom-made large tote by Bent Tree Design
which was never used.
Lovin the quality of the bag and the fact it’s one of a kind.
Also making its debut in my video is
this new oil painting by artist Cindy Austin!
Sometimes Cindy offers up original art
for a song on her beautiful blog.
This is one of those pieces I love no matter
where I place it.
I am so grateful Dore Calloway of Burlap Luxe alerted us
to this Smith & Hawken box on sale at Target!
I found one, followed her instructions for sanding,
and wound up with this attractive finish (below).
Merci, lovely Dore!
(Dore also has a most charming online shop!)

Inside the box is a rosary blessed by the Pope,
a gift my sister brought back from the Vatican.
Another item spied on Burlap Luxe was this gorgeous title:
by Josephine Ryan
(Ryland Peters & Small, 2013)
Familiar with British designer Josephine Ryan’s work?
I was not.
Just. So. Romantic.
Last but not least is a wee lil’ pig found
in an antique mall’s basement.
He said he’d huff and puff until
I brought him home to reside
on a driftwood sailboat.
Home he came.
One more lovely in case you missed the last post:
adorable mini business/calling cards for 10% off
when you use this code.
Today was the first day I went out without
wellies in what feels like a year.
I do believe it’s time to
get our spring break
Peace to you right where you are.
