Paper your world, paper your walls.

You all know from my last wallpaper post that I will be covering my bathroom in vintage botanical prints. Well, if you don't want to hassle with all of the individual pages you can just buy the wall paper that has that look. I stumbled across Eijffinger, a wall covering company somewhere and freaked out when I saw what they created. CUTE!!! On the last image I couldn't help myself but to add it to this post. It is pages of some old book with some music thrown in there, glued onto some great old wall paper with paintings of horses and frames. LOVE IT!!!! Enjoy, Heidi

Come on baby, light my fire.

Last week I did water this week fire. Also since the other day was Earth Day I thought that this artist would be appropriate. His name is John T.Unger and he creates these fabulous fire pits from old propane gas tanks. Don't we all have a little pyromaniac in us? Re purpose, reuse, recycle. Have a great weekend. Heidi

Fairytale Cottage.

If I were a fairytale princess I would prefer to stay in my royal country cottage rather my dark, cold castle. Enjoy, HeidiImage via Thomas Callaway.

Aquasphere foutain.

The moment I laid eyes on this fountain I was intrigued. I finally found the source and Allison Armour is the artist behind it. Check out her site she also has some amazing sculptures that have become objects of my desire as well. Enjoy, Heidi

Is that a Turquoise accent I hear in your voice?

If there were a land of Turquoise, this is what the inside of the houses would look like. Hope you all had a great Easter. Enjoy, Heidi

Passion Flower

Do you know why this is called the passion flower?
It represents the Passion of Christ.
The 10 Petals of the flower represent the 10 apostles who were present at the crucifixion. The Holy Trinity is portrayed by the 3 secondary calyx leaf bracts. The 72 filaments symbolize the crown of thorns worn by Jesus. The 3 stigmas represent Christ and the 2 thieves on the the crosses. Have a wonderful Easter. Heidi
All Passion Flower Images where found on Flickr.

Willow Nest

My new neighbors, Linda and Ludmil of Willow Nest are inspirational. Everything they seem to touch becomes magical. Since I was able to take a sneak peek before the show started at Marburger Farms, I couldn't help myself but to take a few pics of their booth. If you ever come to Burton, it is a must that you visit them, oh yeah and me too. Enjoy, Heidi

Antique Show Encore.

Just in case you are like me and can't seem to get enough of the antique show, I took pics while exploring the Marburger Farms Antique Show in Round Top. Enjoy, Heidi

This is a fun booth, Rubbish is it's name and Mo, one of the owners is an absolute delight. She is a confessed hoarder and Barbie Doll collector. I bought the most fabulous hand painted vintage butterflies made from feathers from her. See ya in the fall, Mo.



This booth has got to be my Number 1 pick for the spring show. The name of the company is Fluff and the owner, Stephanie Talley dresses just as cute as she decorates. She is out of Tyler, Texas and sets up for the Marburger Show twice a year.




These are just random pics I took at the Marburger Farms Antique Show.

Time to get down and dirty in the garden.

We got some rain and everything is greening up and blooming out. I am in love with these garden images and I couldn't wait to share them. I bought a new pair of gardening gloves, a bottle of ibuprofen and Zinfandel and I am ready to garden. Enjoy, Heidi
