Here you have it. My first thrifted vintage piece in Texas. It is a California Pottery planter from the early seventies. This could have been in my mom's kitchen next to the hanging plant in the macrame hanger.
Gee, I cannot imagine why I was attracted to this color.
I simply had to have a pair of these mini retro salt and pepper shakers from Tupperware when they came out. Raise your hand if you remember the original big ones in white.
What do you think of this wee snippet of counter? We are in an apartment for a year. This year is going to be spent exploring Dallas and the surrounding suburbs to see where we want to settle. It will be like a vacation. No mowing, raking, weeding, repairing, or paying for repairing.
Downsizing was a great idea, and I have a nice blank, white canvas to add color too. Little Miss and I hit JoAnn's while Hubby went to the electronics warehouse yesterday. You can expect posts with more color, color, color!
I swear I did not plan this. It is simply another moment where my instincts took over my color choices.
Did you happen to notice how clear and empty this week's schedule is? It is full now! What with enrolling Little Miss in school and making us legal Texans it is packed.
I realized something. We are immigrants, yep. Hubby finally asked the school nurse, who is from Rhode Island, if anybody in Texas is actually from Texas. Most of the folks we meet are from somewhere else.
I am in seventh heaven. Since we have been here we have had rain, more rain, an unseasonably balmy day, and nice "spring" weather. NO SNOW!
"Heaven, I'm in Heaven. And my heart beat so, that I can hardly breathe..."
