pinch me.  tell me i'm not dreaming. 
okay so it's true, i found this small greenhouse, made from distressed metal and glass at the salvation army.
are you sitting down?
because, i paid $6.99 for it.
it just needs cleaned up a little and then i'll plant different lettuces and basil inside.  i am thrilled to be gardening in the wintertime.  outside of growing windowsill sprouts, i'm limited to what grows fresh around here.  this should satisfy my green thumb...


one of my favorite vintage gifts i received for christmas... was this wild-looking vase.  i'm picturing lilacs and bleeding hearts cascading out of it.  or white-wild roses with sprigs of rosemary befriending each other. 
for now however, i'm just enjoying moving it from room to room and seeing where it looks the best.
truth is, it looks good everywhere.

smile, wink, nod.

Oh that greenhouse is awesome! If I didn't live in an apartment, I'd love to have something like that in my yard.

The greenhouse is great - hubby wanted to buy me one and I put him off due to cost. Great find and very unusual vase - great gift!
