In March, I put together a Spring vignette, on the hearth room mantel, using white ironstone, a wire cloche, prints from Charleston South Carolina and an iron piece. Because two of the prints show Charleston gates, I wanted an iron gate or similar piece, for the fireplace. When we stopped at Apple Wagon Antiques and Decor, last week, I found just what I was looking for.
I changed the vignette, for summer, using the prints, a lantern and two figurines; a boy and girl, I’ve had several years. The figurines remind me of The Boxcar Children.
I changed the silk fern, for a live fern and the mantel and hearth were finished, for Summer 2010.
The fireplace, Spring 2010.
The hearth room is progressing toward the country look we hope for.
I opened the magazine to an article about Beverly’s Pink Saturday. Have you visited How Sweet the Sound? If not, I recommend you stop by.
Awhile back, Artful Blogging contacted Beverly about doing an article, featuring the weekly event. Beverly sent out an e-mail to Pink Saturday participants, asking for photos, used in Pink Saturday posts.
I smiled when I saw a photo of a Crepe Myrtle, in the upper left corner of page 40. I took that photo with my trusty Canon Rebel Xti, in Osage Beach Missouri, last year.
I am so very happy Beverly received this special recognition for Pink Saturday.
Thank you, Beverly, for graciously hosting Pink Saturday.
I am honored that my Crepe Myrtle photo was included with the work of so many talented artists and photographers.
I was asked what my thoughts are about Paula’s new book, Paula Deen’s Savannah Style. I have looked through this book several times, since I purchased it, in Tennessee, last month. I honestly can tell you, I thoroughly enjoy Savannah Style every time I open the cover. Beautiful interiors and exteriors, including porches. I have found loads of inspiration.
