white, continued

do you remember these wonderful shabby chic planters from target a few summers ago? they are fabulous...and i am still wondering why i only bought two??? i'm thinking it was likely budget related, but really. i'd like 3 more, at least.




and this little white rocking chair? handcrafted by the grandpa of a 70ish gentleman who was hosting a wonderful garage sale yesterday.

a flower i made for my paris swap partner, diana. it's made from an old player piano roll - and i found the inspiration here. it's my first attempt and it's far from symmetric...but diana seems to like imperfect things just as much as i do:)

and a peek at some of the other things headed her way.




which reminds me! wait until you see the ab.so.lute.ly. fabulous box of french treasures she sent me...i promise i'll post photos soon:)

I do love those planters. I didn't see them at Target. I wonder how I missed such treasures. Your whites are lovely. That looks like a lot of great things heading your partners way and I can't wait to see how you scored.

Mary, love your white patio decor...I'm sure a lovely place to sit and relax. As usual, your Paris swap looks fab! I have been in a few local Goodwill shops without much luck, perhaps I just lack the vision that everyone else seems to have. I'll just have to drool over your finds. :-)

Those planters are beautiful and the plant goes perfectly. Beautiful combination. The jewel box is beautiful, too and I'm sure your partner will love all the goodies you are sending her way.
