This pretty box is being offered byDave's Quilt Boxesin a drawing. He says,"I’ll draw the winner out of my newsletter list on New Year’s Day. If you know someone who might like a chance at it tell them to go to the blog (Quiltboxes.com) and sign up. Don’t think of it as reducing your chances of winning think of it as…well, as…well do it for me." Be sure and check it out.
And, now, here is another pretty box, but with drawers! This is one of my Christmas gifts. We went to pick it up yesterday. I wanted some drawer storage in my little hallway between the linen closet door and the bathroom door.
It is exactly what I had in mind for the location. I saw it on the Pier 1 website and it was less than $200. So, we went to see it in the store. They only had the store model, so they ordered one for us. We picked it up yesterday! We placed it just around the corner from the front door. It will be so nice to have a place to put things onto when I come home. You know, someplace to put keys and "all that stuff". Maybe, even my purse - - - and it can't be seen from the front door window.
I like it ! I like it! And, remember I have some stripes in my living room decor. So, it works really well. By the way, these are the only stripes on the walls in my house. Don't want to overdue it.
The Door Is Open. Come on in. I'm glad you stopped by and I hope you will enjoy your visit. I live in the historic town of Murphys, California which is in the Mother Lode Country were gold was discovered in the 1800's. The Murphy family "Struck It Rich" in 1848-1849. The lifestyle here is quiet and serene. A perfect place to enjoy nature, reading, being outdoors working in the garden, knitting, sewing, crocheting, cooking, baking, decorating, entertaining or whatever strikes your fancy!
IN MY GARDEN there is a large place for sentiment.
My garden of flowers is also my garden of thoughts and dreams.
The Thoughts grow as freely as the flowers and the dreams are as beautiful. - Abram Urban
In the garden I tend to drop my thoughts here and there. To the flowers I whisper the secrets I keep and the hopes I breathe. I know they are there to eavesdrop for the angels. ~Dodinsky
