Tin Treasures and Vingettes

Hi! I'm wrapping up a busy week on the homefront...
Spring arrived on the calendar,if no where else...
At least I can't say I never had time for necessary tasks like organizing closets...
confession;I'm a sweaterholic...(this is some of them:))
                         and blouses...
I don't color coordinate my items really, Do you?
This blouse is so pretty and vintage looking...I keep it, even though I've seldom worn it...
actually I should hang it in my laundry 
room as it matches this vignette...

I found these square 
french wall hangings at 
a thrift shop recently for two dollars......

I also have a thing for vintage tins....
this is my latest...
the saying on the lid...Home Is Where Love Grows...

and it matches the clock....

 some more favorite tins....

they are great hiding spots for money, candy or whatever you'd like to save for a rainy day....(mine are empty at the moment...but at least I'll be ready when opportunity hits:)

 this one is dreamy and romantic like a lush June garden...
                       and finally...

       yesterday was my daughter Katrina's birthday...
  she turned eighteen.Happy Birthday dear, we love you.

Thanks for stopping by, and may spring spring 
                                 upon us soon!

  6. Yes, I have started color coordinating my closet. Only the hanging clothes. It actually helps me pull out some sort of matching outfit quicker! LOL.

    Your daughter is a beauty! You are very blessed!

    enJOY your week,

  9. I love all your tins, Lucy, and the floral blouse is so pretty. You are more organized than I am! (Your daughter's birthday dessert looks delicious, by the way!)
