Hanging in my Work Room

Have been hanging a few things in my work room.  Ever so often, I have to quit with the boxes and do something creative.

This is the area in my work room above louvered doors that enclose my washer and dryer.

Kinda Magnolia Market, don't ya think?

I had gotten this metal shelf and these corrugated letters at Hobby Lobby some time back on the clearance aisle.  This is an area beside my desk in the work room.  It holds scissors, pins, glue gun, etc.

One of My Favorite Pieces

Several years ago, I found a new friend at a craft show I was participating in and she had the most gorgeous mosaics I had ever seen. Her name is Pam Smith and she is in Tulsa.

I ask her if she did custom work and she did!  Yea!

I had found this silver coffee service and had it in my reserves.

I had been in Tuesday Morning and bought a set of red and white transferware looking dishes.  One of my cups was broken when I unpacked them.  I went back and ask if they could possible replace the one cup.  The lady said the whole crate had come in with damages and they would replace the cup with one out of the damaged sets.

I ask her if she would be willing to sell the broken set and she readily agreed to for like $10.00.

So, I called Pam and took my teapot and tray over to her with the box of broken dishes.

I had also found this tray that had ceramic inserts in each end.  She chiseled out the old and put in the mosaic pieces to match the teapot.

She had a floral ceramic knob that she used on the top of the teapot.  

I have always just loved this set.  I also have a small table she did I will share with you at some date.

My First Peony of Spring

I was so excited to cut my first peony out of my back yard and bring in to enjoy in the house.

I put it in a white pitcher and sit it atop two pieces of pink Depression on a white cutwork ceramic cake plate.

Isn't she a beauty?

Amazing Week

This has truly been an amazing week - some good, some really good and some a little scary.

I had a landscaping crew come in and weed all of my many flowerbeds and put in mulch.  They look so neat and pretty now.  I'm hoping now that I can keep them up the rest of the summer.

This mystery bush has been identified as a Southern Magnolia by many of you gardeners.  Thanks.  It still hasn't opened up the flowers.  Will keep you posted.

Another unidentified plant is this....

it has clusters of little bulbs that bloom out into these...

And then there is this gorgeous bush - is it peonies?

My interesting week started out on Tuesday with 45 solid minutes of tornado sirens going off.  Bella howled along with them the whole time.  As a result of the high winds, this happened to my tree in the front yard.

This was the Oklahoma sky during this.

My sister Jeannie came on Wednesday and stayed until Saturday.  We had a great time.  We unpacked and put up alot of my unfinished boxes, we ate out alot of good food and of course we shopped.  I will show you in a day or so what all I found on Saturday when we garage and estate saled.

After she left today, I went to the Tulsa Flea Market and took a couple of my red transferware pieces to have potted.

There is this sweet lady who sells succulents and if you bring a container or buy one at the flea market, she'll repot them for you.

She did this one with a hen and chicken only it is a species called spider web hen and chicken.  You can see it better in the photo below.

This is the other one she did.  She called this plant a lace necklace succulent.

So, that's where I have been this week - just goofing off and enjoying it tremendously.
