Blog Break



Dear friends,

With much reluctance, I must take a blog break.  Several years ago I had spinal surgery in my neck (a titanium plate and screws)  which has been giving me a lot of problems.   I need to take some time off to concentrate on my health,  general life matters, and  maybe even a vacation.

I  care dearly for all my blogging friends and will miss you; but will be back soon along with Potpourri Friday.   I  look forward to my return and hope that you will miss me just a teensy bit while I’m away.

Take care!
                                                                  Until next time, Honey

Potpourri Friday #28


Hi everyone and welcome to Potpourri Friday!  I was getting a bit on edge as my modem  was out and had to be sent a new one;  thus no posting or commenting  for several days.  Eeekkk!  I’m now back up and running, so let’s have a great party!



To match the magnolias on top of my armoire,  I’m keeping it simple (no imagination at all!)  with  Spring  greenery and magnolias on the mantel, along with  a book bundle and a 60’s vintage  art glass vase which Mr. 2805 gave to his sweet Mother for  Mother’s Day one year when he was a lad.

Silkscreen Pillow

Last month, the multi-talented Linda at Itsy Bitsy Pieces had a giveaway sponsored by  Deb at  Loyalist Cottage.   Deb is also a multi-talented gal, who just had one of her pillows featured in the Feb-March edition of HGTV magazine.

What did I win?   A beautiful silkscreen  pillow cover of my choice.  Off I went to her etsy shop and chose the French route!



It’s perfect in an arm chair in my breakfast room, don’t you think?



French pillow meets 100 year old tiger oak chair and hand painted  Italian Majolica plates purchased in Italy.   Obviously, I'm not married to any one style.

Inquiring  minds want to know, so  off  I went in search of  H Fournier, Editeur.  He was a editor-publisher in the 1800’s and the address listed is  Rue Saint -Benoit, 7.    What is at Rue Saint’ Benoit, 7 now?   The  Hotel Bel Ami Saint Germain  hotel.



Many thanks to Linda, also the purveyor of  three etsy shops, and to Deb for your generosity!
  It’s perfect!

Until next time, Honey
