True Luxury


Picking your own salad from the garden moments before the skies open up.

Rain.


Coming home to a post card from your oldest friend who still lives in Michigan on Lake Huron and referenced Bootsy Collins. Funkalicious.

 Threadbare flea market treasures.



./[p'; ( from Gus)

I went with 35.00 and spent 35.00. The rug was 7.00. Who could say no?
The print 5.00. A lovely soft burlap sack with drawstring, framed dried flower, a stoneware bowl from Bennington pottery and a funky Persian print tablecloth ( reference the 70's) rounded up the $$$.

This girl was on fire.

Another necessary luxury?



It's June. I see you what y'all are up to on Instagram.

Next Monday, the 16th, give it up.

Show the people what you got.

You know you want to.

  1. The lettuce looks so delicious! Your flea market purchases are beautiful. I will be out of town this Monday so I don't know whether I will be able to join in or not. I can still visit, though.

    1. We';ll miss you. You can do it in advance and schedule it to be published on Monday.

      But if you do remember to hit publish after you set your time otherwise it languishes in your posts.

    1. I know! Initially it was 10.00 but when I hesitated, because I have no place to put it, he said 7. I said why not! It's beautiful.
