This will be a very short one, well, for me anyway! Once we leave tomorrow morning to pick up SIL's truck, I won't have much time until next week to talk to you so am sneaking one in.
Oh, I'm so sorry. Looks like I cut the shot short. Here, let me try again.
Is that better? No? Well, that's all I took so guess you'll have to wait for--the big reveal.
I did get some straightening up done, though, while we are waiting for the doors to get done.
I have always wanted a plate rack so we are leaving the doors off over the stove and I ordered this little beauty from LaurieAnna's Vintage Home. She has the sweetest things in her shop and I just love it. Can't see it very well, you say? My answer to that is you'll have to wait for--the big reveal.
Here is my vignette on top of my 'blingy' frig. We had a TV on top for so many years that I haven't had to display anything up there. So don't be surprised if it changes before--the big reveal.
We did get the ceiling painted and it looks so bright and clean now. I really would like to get rid of that old fan, but in this old Cottage there isn't a whole lot of insulation and it gets very warm in the summer, so the fan stays. I, myself, would sweat it out for beauty's sake but Mr. Captain Practical says otherwise.
Also, I wanted to share with you how the garden has exploded in the last few days.
One of the David Austin roses.
Another David Austin rose.
Roses by any other name.
The Cecil Bruner rose bush
See those nasty little white things on the rosebud? You know what those are, probably only too well. Well, every year they are all over the roses, but then in a twinkling, these little sweethearts show up and the aphids are history.
I don't know who they are or what they are, I'm just so happy to see them..I call them My Little Magic Bugs..And everyone I talk to don't know what they are and most of them have never even seen them, but yet their roses are covered in aphids. There must be something magical about GoldCountryCottage. If anyone out there knows anything about these precious things, I'd be happy to hear.
Well, this post went from short to long so I'll say good night and settle in to watch "Dancing With The Stars".
Hope you all are enjoying the week...Judy
