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!
Hi Libby, Happy Spring! Sorry you’ve been having tech issues. (FYI: This page took a long time to load but finally displayed.) I love your new tin tray and wonderfully hued tulips. Be sure to catch Art in Bloom at NCMA (through Sunday) if you can.
Hi Susie: Thanks for letting me know. As I said to Loi, don’t use GoDaddy! I’ll be switching servers next week so we shall see….
Yay! It’s good now. I’ve had lots of problems accessing your site and comments (which I told you). Glad all is well. Happy spring! BTW, it’s snowing in DC – what a way to celebrate :) xoxo
PS – Are you going to Sweden? If so, let me know.
Hi Loi: Yes, what a mess and still not right! Just don’t use GoDaddy for hosting.
I saw you were in Bath…lucky you! I’ll have to go to Instagram and see if you’ve posted any more pictures.
BTW: No, we’re not going to Sweden, but to Rome! Quite a switch, no?
I read the comment above mine. It does take a long time to load your site, FYI
Pretty Tulips! My tulips are already up and are gorgeous. They have ruffled petals and are in pink and white. Two weeks ago, I planted Dahlia bulbs and can’t wait for them to start sprouting. The instructions said not to water until I see the first spouts from the ground. I’d never heard of that? But far be it from me to question planting instructions, LOL! All the Azaleas are in full bloom and the trees are flowering too! I love this time of the year!
Have a great weekend, Libby.
Hi Libby – I am glad that you are managing to sort things out – it sounds like you have had quite a problem! Love your new tray. xx
Hi Julie: Well, we’re moving servers some time this week, so blog will be down for a while! It’s been better, but not good. Oh, the time I have devoted to this!
I loved your last post with such beautiful photos. You are amazing to do flowers for weddings: lucky, lucky bride!
I’ll write you a newsy email very soon!
