Fresh Idees

I love these calico petals plates grouped together. Photo courtesy of our friends at Pinterest of course.
They plates appear to be the same pattern and type. Do you know what they are? Just curious. Maybe they're not vintage, but rather re-makes.
I'm fond of this kitchen nook picture too. It looks cozy and inviting, warm and friendly. Doesn't it?
Notice how both pictures share plate displays.

I have a small display of my favorite plates in my kitchen.
Do you have some of your favorite plates on display in your home?
I believe plates add a certain charm to any decor.

Flower seeds as gifts...

The cockscomb is a most unusual looking flower. It's easy to grow and flourishes during the heat of the summer. You simply pick the large clusters of blooms in early autumn and bring inside for drying. They dry beautifully.
I'm putting together a few seed packets to give as gifts.
I'll be creating a new seed packet for the assortment of seeds.
Zinnia, moon flower, brown eye susans, bee balm are some of the varieties I'll be sharing.
You may remember the seed packet I created last spring. It was inspired by my Great Aunt Enid. She was a natural garden guru and a wonderful cook.
H'm not able to share the pdf on blogger post. You can catch it at Bittersweet if you want to print out the seed packet.
Here'a a link.  Reduce to 100%.

Share your creative space...

I thought it would be fun to share our creative spaces this week.
Do you have a special nook or space that inspires you to create?
You can add a picture and link to your creative space below on the link button.
Simply follow the prompts.

This picture was taken last summer. It's the entrance to my home studio. A place where I share my creations with friends and patrons. I've been operating the shop from my home for 5 years now. Before that I owned and managed a shop downtown.
It's fun having a shop in your home! It's worked out great for me. If you're contemplating a home shop, I say go for it! It makes perfect sense to me. You'll have the best of both worlds!
