My garden makes me happy

in my search for great items for the home, i often run into amazing things for the garden ... i love a european garden. Old urns, concrete tables, statuary ... and i love it, as is, with moss and lots of patina. in the last year i have become completely obsessed with succullents. they match my crazy schedule ... no need for extra care. they are amazing as a group, looking almost like a bouquet or arrangement. in an old urn, they are simply spectacular.

when i step out the front door and see the lovely grouping ... i am instantly happy.

a great day of junking ....

it's pictures like this that inspire me to continue to look for treasures ... simple, eclectic, serene, one of a kind items for the home ... especially after 7 hours of digging, unburrying, and hauling a truckload of "great junk" from a less than undesireable location.

... today has simply been an amazing day of junking. i never know when i am going to find great stuff ... i just get out there and one thing leads to another and before long, i find a pile. in todays case, i filled my tahoe and then had to call my husband for support and he brought his big truck and we filled it to the brim. i am exhausted and i can't sleep ... my mind is racing with ideas and a long list of things i need to create.
