Spring Johnny Jump Ups are Blooming

I know I haven't posted on this blog for a while but now that Spring is coming back to Colorado I have some inspiration. These are some Johnny Jump Ups I planted last spring. Since they are bi-annuals they came up again. I love their little happy faces!

My Newest Bargin Found At The Thrift Store

One of my favorite things to do is to go to thrift stores. The Goodwill is only four blocks away from my house and it seems anytime I go there I always find something interesting to buy. This star burst mirror was only $3.00 and it still had the T.J. Max store tag on the back for $19.95! It's now hanging on my wall in a great spot in my office and adds a little flair to the room.

Snow Covered Pansies

Remember the barrel full of pansies when I first planted them in the spring? Or the summer's bounty with the pansies hosting a place for surprise tomato plants? These are the same pansies that I planted now covered in snow. They have really been a long lasting plant.

My Etsy Shop Is Open For Business

I have opened my Etsy store. Please check it out at gypsiedream.etsy.com. I have some beautiful handcrafted jewelry that would make wonderful one of a kind gifts for the holiday season.

An Autumn Butterfly

This little butterfly is hanging in there. He looks a little worn and tattered, but it still is a beautiful thing to see on a chilly autumn day.

Too Much Wall Space

In my small cottage the living room ceiling has been removed and is now vaulted. This leaves it looking like a little room with tall walls. I had sat there staring at the open space between the living room and kitchen wondering what am I going to do with the blank space. I had several ideas, but knew I wanted something architectural. I found this large iron piece at Hobby Lobby for half price. Though it is not the vintage piece I wanted, I think it will do for now.

I Am Going To Miss Summer

Yesterday was the first day of fall. I was sitting outside today thinking of how I am going to miss Summer and all the pretty flowers. Soon here in Colorado, the weather will change and before you know it the snow will fall. Like the circle the seasons create, Spring will be here again before you know it. Then the time for new flowers to blossom will happen again.
