Thank you to everyone who left a comment on yesterday's post. My blogging friends, you made my day!
We’ve had a heat wave here this last week so I’ve been trapped inside. The break in the heat today gave me a chance to take a long walk. On my way home, I stopped in at a favorite flower shop. I love going into this shop because the arrangements and the assortment of flowers is always unique. I struck up a conversation with the owner, and noticed out of the corner of my eye a huge bunch of olive braches in a zinc bucket. I love using big branches in my kitchen. My crazy . . . ALL . . . brick kitchen. I’ve given up the idea of painting the brick. I’m not brave enough to do it. I’ve embraced the rustic look and tree branches on the fireplace look great.
I asked her how much for each branch. She said they were free and wrapped up the entire bunch and gave them to me. I looked ridiculous walking home with an armload of branches bigger than me!
When I got home, I put the branches in a gathering basket I’ve had for years. The branches are on their way out, but I’m going to see how they dry.
It’s that time of day to light candles. Here is another view into my bedroom-living room. See you all next week . . .
