Deleting Can Be Hazardous To One's Health!

I deleted my blog! OMG, I was so disgusted with myself. I went to a help page and came away more confused than ever! Then I began to push this and that and here I am. No, I have no idea how to help anyone else, except to say that if you lose your blog, don't dispair, as you too can retrieve it.

I received my annual bee sting this past week! I hope it's the first and last of the season. First, I barely felt a thing. Then I noticed some swelling and redness. Before I knew it, my arm was twice its size and the pain was relentless. I applied the old baking soda paste, but I don't know that it helped. I also used some Benadryl for the itching that followed. I could feel my entire left side reacting. My legs didn't seem to work as well as I climbed steps, and there were other, either real or imaginary symptoms. Allergic reactions, possibly?? Two little red marks remain from those two attacking Yellow Jackets, but I feel well!

I'm thinking of flowers a lot today, as I've had a battle keeping mine healthy~~~actually
*alive* this summer. It's been so hot! This is our deck earlier this season and you can see a few flowers peeking from different areas. I especially love the golden one and the ferns. My husband's favorites are the Geraniums.

Ok, I'm baaaack! Let's see if I can figure this all out. Why do I have that void space next to the photo of my cupboard? By the way, it's for sale!!!! I have it listed at Etsy. Serenities and also at on my website.

Here is another interesting wall cupboard in bittersweet. It is trimmed in hand painted green. I love the smooth texture of both of these painted pieces! The wall cupboard has a beveled mirror. Probably turn of the 20th century old.

Living With Antiques

This is a test!!! Wish me luck!!

Every time I hear someone mention blogging, I tell myself that I would probably enjoy doing that. Well, here I am. I have no clue what I'm doing or what I will find to share with everyone, but I'll give it a try. This could be fun or not, but I hope to share some of my antiques with you and introduce the life that goes with them. Just because something has evolved from the past, doesn't mean that it's *old fashioned*. Antiques live as comfortably in today's world as brand new items.

Many of my favorites are pieces that have retained their original paint. This wonderful, 1800's blue, corner cupboard is a perfect example.
