My Art Habit

Hi all!
I hope you are having a great week.
I am thrilled to announce the newest sponsor at No Minimalist Here. 
  My Art Habit  is a group of individuals with years of designing
 and building outstanding framed art.  They offer beautiful artwork and
 the frame designs are constructed of the same materials that you would
 purchase at a local custom frame shop at a fraction of the cost.  Check
out a few of my  favorites below.
I hope you will stop by and take a look at  My Art Habit  and their great
selection of reasonably priced artwork.
Take care,

New Addition ~ Wire Planter

Hi everyone! 
I hope you are all doing well.
A couple of days before leaving for Florida I purchased this vintage wire
planter.  I have always loved these but I could never find one that was not too
expensive. I bought this one at an auction for $15.00!  
There wasn't enough time for me to really style it before my trip but I
wanted to share it with you anyways.   

There are two identical mirrors hung above each other on the wall.  The
mirrors were a very bright gold color until I painted them gray with
Isn't she a cutie?

The salt (sale) jar was purchased on a trip to France.

 Thanks for dropping by and for all the sweet comments you leave me.  I
so appreciate your friendship and your prayers for my dad.

I Have Missed You!

A lot has happened since I last posted.  Almost a month ago I moved in with
 my dad in Florida.  He had several mini strokes and now needs full time care. 
I feel so blessed to be able to have this special time with dad.
Last week Steve drove from Richmond to bring my car and other
things I could not bring when I flew here.  He is staying a couple of
weeks and then returning home to try and get our home sold.  I have
the best husband ever and I could not do this without his total support.
I now have internet access thanks to this new gadget. 
I was looking for internet service without having to sign a two year contract and
this mobile hotspot does just that.  It's portable so I take it to the doctors office
 and can even use it in the car.
I missed all of you and hope to get back to blogging on a regular schedule soon.
Dad was an antique dealer for many years and there are lots of pretty things to
share with you.
Thank you for your continued prayers for my dad and I truly appreciate
the kind comments left on my previous post.
