Helo there dearest, welcome to my blog. The best place for me to express what I love most. All my love of vintage things. I mostly love the Victorian era as well as things from the fifties.. I love to cook and bake and spend time with my family. I thought and believed I loved Autumn the most, but I've come to find each special thing about each season, to find the beauty in it... And through blogging I have found those things... I have surrounded myself with all the things that I love... Victorian depression glass, teapots and cups linens and lace... I also crochet vintage doilies as well... I hope that you enjoy each and every visit with me... *HAPPY SPRING LOVES....*

When the snail makes holes in your seed packets...

        Well good morning to you..  A while back ago I went to get some seeds out from the little shed and I found this icky fat snail in one of the plastic bags, that I apparently forgot to close...  She ate through a bunch of the seed packets..  Which surprised me totally.  I never knew snails ate paper..I was so mad..  So I got rid of her...  And took out the packets and many of them had holes all over and the seeds where fallin out and mixing up...  So a few days back I decided to fix that and I thought what could I put all these tiny seeds in..  Envelopes, nope thats way to big for a tiny pinch of seeds and a waste.  So I came up with the idea to make some kind of packet with sticky notes.
        I thought I would use one of my little rose boxes to keep them in...  I love pretty boxes and pretty seed packets...

        I cut one and glued inside the bottom of the box to make it more pretty...

        Then I got the blue sticky notes, I took two and put them togetherand made a tiny packet...

        Here is one of the packets she ate up silly snail...  My pretty loves in a mist...  
        I actually cut and attacheted the cover to the tiny packet so I know what they are...  This was fun to do and kept me busy and entertained for a spell...

        I had several to do...  SHe also chewed this lemon cucmber packet quite well so I left most of it like that and glued it on to the tiny packet I made...
    


       I even made a packet for the chive seeds that come about from the purple flowers that bloom, they hold a bunch of seeds inside.  This year I cut them off after a while and took the seeds out.  


    All done, it was fun, thanks ms snail... Hehehe ...  Silly snail..
        Now for tea,  see you soon..  Have a fabulous Thursday, with love Janice

Tuesday's love of Lace...

        I tried to get this post out yesterday but it just didn't happen..  So here I'am working on it now...  This is a table cloth that I found years ago on my Dad's truck, for those of you who don't know my dad had a busniess where he cleaned estates etc...  And most times before he went to the dumps he would come by and let me look through the truck..  And most of the times I would find vintage items and much of it I sold at flea markets side walk sales...  This cloth I kept for me but never got to use it...  It has been in storage for years..  And now at mamas house and I have finally dragged it out brought it home to wash by hand of course...  It is so pretty...  I believe it is French lace as they call it...
        It is quite lovely, in the middle area it is solid cloth and surrounded then by the lace.  In perfect condtion...  It has one tiny like a rust stain..  Not sure that I can get it out..  But it is very small so if I can't i can handle it...
        This such fine works...   
                  



        I'm ready for a teatime table perhaps in the garden if the silly weather would corporate...  It's like lite winter out there I don't know what is going on... 
              

        Another pretty lace piece...

        I love Ivory and lite Pinks...  So pretty...
