May Days


Found cream and white antique buttons displayed in a vintage tortoiseshell topped jar on the dressing table






I bought a panel of rusty iron from my favourite country town shop



  I have popped it in the garden where I can see it from inside the family room until it goes into a new garden area we are going to create in spring























The first camellia of the season




Picked pumpkins








A few autumn roses and the Prunus trees are now bare



A foggy dawn

This Weeks Find


This week I found a darling silver velvet lined and engraved all over and monogrammed for $4








The roses are slowly flowering less and less now that it is May...so I am enjoying them while I can

















Sunset before a storm


 Dawn from the front porch across the town



the leaves on the  trees are slowly disappearing
