Heavy but pretty...

Thanks to all the sweet bloggers out there who left such nice comments for me. I am back and fine. I'll avoid surgery at all costs in the future though...didn't like that one little bit! And who would!
Glad it's fixed tho!

Bloggers really are the best!

 I finally got out today, I felt like a caged animal after over a week inside.
I went to JoAnn's and loaded up on paint and brushes (since they were on sale) so I can start painting roses on anything I can find this winter.

Then off to a boutique that always has a few vintage things.
I picked up some really pretty green vaseline pieces that I'll save for later.
Then onto Whimsicals where I found a pretty vintage mirror with not so pretty metal flowers that I'll paint an antique-y white, then they will be pretty too.

I actually felt like puttering around when I got home. I had Mr. Wild set this super heavy cement old urn on one side of the fireplace bench. I filled it with some of my pine cones and a few antler sheds found in our woods years ago. Simple but I like it.

I can't wait to stick a tree top in this urn and decorate it for Christmas!

For those of you that have been following along on my Wyoming blog, I posted a few pictures today HERE

Thanks for stopping by!
