A Sunny Day...'bout time

I am in LOVE with these NAPA planters
When a truly gorgeous day finally comes around - duty calls. I love taking photos of items for in natural lighting. This usually ends up taking up my entire day and making a huge mess. But on this particular day last week I had to do it. My back hill was finally bursting with color. Purple and white violets cover the ground. Creeping Phlox creeps everywhere - and best of all, the weeds have not yet taken over everything. Im sure many of you can sympathize there.
I may not be able to let go of this Danish Blue Cheese crate
Check out the above 1942 copy of the book The Enchanted April. I picked it up at the Flea last week. It is one of my all time favorite chick flick movies. Its right up there with "Chocolat" and "Under the Tuscan Sun".  I decided to dig in and read the book...when I get a few minutes that is.
It looks like a birdcage, but it holds a candle or plant and lots of possibilities
I'm keeping my fingers crossed for many more of these sunny warm days ahead. In case I don't fit another post in before this weekend ~ Happy Mothers Day to all of you wonderful women out there. Give yourself a warm round of applause, you deserve it.

Linking up with Kathleen at Faded Charm for another fabulous week of White Wednesday

Also with Debra @ Common Ground for Vintage Inspiration Friday

  1. Three of my favorite flicks also..Love to have great chick flicks on in the background in the studio if I get tired of just music. After watching dozens of times I don't need to see the screen to see the scene in my head. :D
