many of us have seen the over the top decorated gypsy wagons but this is genious, the whites makes everything dissapear as in a magic act. Love the crispiness of it.

Fresh picked peaches
This is my type of trip, less than 50 mph, country roads, windows rolled down, the peaches smell still in the air

Only took me 25 minutes of inspiration, some phantom hooks from WalMart, 2 old window frames, a mantel found at a flea market, my precious found objects and a tinsy bit of junk.
It was a blank space, I first secure the mantel with a hooks used to hang frames, these hooks don't need a hammer and leave a tiny hole when removed.
I have to use pretty much hooks, bubble gum and banana peels on the walls- since I cannot' drill much on military housing.
The "table" base is an old iron sewing machine, -the steps are only one of the tools of the trade.
Details on the mantel...
small chest home is homefor more old post cards..flower frogs from a flower shop in Hollywood California are used to hold photos.
Some people call them santos, votos, but they are really called ex votos, these in smaller versions are pin to Saints clothes when miracles are grantted as a sign of the favors received and to thank the Saint. I sell this for $9 plus shipping..

Today I learned a new fact that I wish to share with all of you, I went to instructables.com and I found a very interesting piece of information on cleaning, how to use berries to wash your clothes!! this soapberries are used all over the world and have been used for probably thousands of years to wash, contains saponins active ingredient used to make soaps, albeit the name of soap, savon, jabon...anyways This berry is recomended for cleaning and you might used it to wash your body because contains no chemicals however it's irritant on the eyes, in case you want to use it as shampoo. I've been always afraid of chemicals we use in our bodies, and I bet there is much more natural practices in folk remedies we can use instead of cosmetics often linked with cancer.. thanks for reading

My home is simple and unpretencious, it's filled with objects that we love to watch and use, many of them found and rescued.
I only splunge on furniture because it needs to be sturdy, we've moved so much and so very often to different climates that makes veneers are not an option
I only buy things that I love and thing s that I can use them in multiple tasks. We try to be organic so there is no plastics or sintetics fibers around... cotton, linen, wool are also affordable.
Thanks for stoping by...

With the summer comes the pool season, I can't tell if is good or bad because as soon as the pool is warm enough my kids jump in and they surely refuse to get out, so today they dragged to the pool right after breakfast. I can't complaint on their behaviour they were at their best, they stayed so content for so long that I enjoyed the peace and quiet that i couldn't notice my sunburned skin, as soon as I got our of the water and dry the pain hited me, I mean sunburned like a boiled crab, my skin complexion is supossed to work in my advantage, I was born tanned! I knew that the ozone is depleting but c'mon.. well I guess we better bring 50 plus sun block the next time... Don't forget to hidrate... see ya soon

Recently I came across some dozens of love letters sent to a lady in the forties, she keep them all neatly tied up in a bunch. I read some of them and luckily I found a picture of her and her lover, I can't tell how things end since I haven't been able to read them all, I will post more on this later.and yes I feel like I'm reading correspondence that does not belongs to me, things that nobody should know but her, however any events passes about 50 plus years ago.. what is your opinion on the matter? should I keep reading them at all or not?
Babies sleeping on a shell nest, I collect these small green houses and fill them with my collections of faeries and shells.
I'm linking to "Few of My favorite Things Saturday"
Most of the things that I keep at home are found on State sales, antique stores, flea markets and even yard sales, so please come on in...
