Lately, I feel like about all I can manage is to get one decent picture to post on Instagram each day.
One of the challenges on Instagram this week was to show a favorite gift and another was to show something vintage so I combined the two hashtags and created this collage.
The gift I wanted to showcase was the candlesticks
which were a wedding present nearly 45 years ago
and probably the only gift from our 1971 wedding that I still have.
The candlesticks definitely qualify for the vintage hashtag as do the linens I used for the table setting.
Lovely Rita of Panoply sent me the gorgeous vintage tablecloth and the wonderful striped napkins - at least that's how I use them.
Rita could not have chose a better tablecloth for our house.
Another day, sweet Ana of A Petite Cottage challenged me on Instagram to show teacups and pitchers and I combined it with the hashtag - #brightwhitewednesday.
The little cast iron pig is one of my favorite tchotchkes
and I love him paired with vintage linens from a friend.
Yesterday sweeping the porch was literally the only thing I managed to do.
Today I worked in the garden,
and I managed to capture a "selfie" in the garden mirror.
I actually did a fun project in the garden this morning, but that will be for another post.
