Ok… Let’s see if this post comes up just fine for everyone, shall we?

Believe it or not, I, and about three other people, have been working each and every day for over a week to get this blog up and running. No, you do not want to know the problems. In fact, there were so many problems and they changed and morphed so quickly that is has been very difficult to begin to fix them.

So let’s open with a fresh, spring, colorful image I took the other day. The tulips are “store bought” (Trader Joe’s) as mine are just
6″ high and won’t be flowering for about another three weeks.


I am loving this wonderful green, tin tray I bought last weekend.


This I had posted on Instagram they day I bought the green tray:


Local people, you really should take a trip over to Apex (or Raleigh) to
Two Old Birds
 The Apex store is in a former gas station which just makes it all the more interesting. It’s fabulous! Lots and lots of goodies. They are also a dealer for
Annie Sloan Chalk Paint
and offer workshops. I was looking for a new color to paint a sideboard: post on this when I have time to do the painting and waxing!
I had a chat with one of the owners, Susan, and will be featuring her store in my
“It’s Local” column very soon.

I hope to be back on a regular basis now, but we ARE changing servers, so may be down temporarily. Again, thanks for staying with me!
