Life Thursday #26 with Features from #25!

I found this great basket a while back...

It sat for a while holding some "paint this" and Etsy-bound stuff...

It wasn't was stained a deep red-ish brown - and I don't really have that color anywhere. 

I wanted it white or gray. Or grayish white.

Aplolgies for not posting last night...and prayers requested for my mom, who went into the hospital yesterday with a blood clot in her leg. She'll be there several more days, and she's ticked - she wants to be home doing what she likes!

Anyway, I drove to her town and took a few things to make her stay more acceptable...mostly in the form of chocolate.

Now...for last week's features!

Kimberly, from Camp and Cottage Living, shared a most charming screened porch with us! I LOVE screened porches. Take a peek at how she used a vintage chenille bedspread below, and visit to see a lot more vintage charm.

Cecilia from My Thrift Store Addiction shared her Secret Garden with us...I will be pinning her garden for inspiration in my own weedy space. 

Michal from Sweet Woodruffs shared a lovely vintage vignette. Not only does it look great, but it holds items she uses daily - Epsom salts, natural beauty products, make-up brushes, etc.
