I was going to begin tonight's post by saying that it's been a hectic week but then it occured to me -- IT'S ONLY TUESDAY! (LOL) I hope everyone had a lovely Mother's Day. My guys made my day very special and I'm happy to report that all of my meals were either out or take-out!

For a few months I have been looking around for a wire shelf. Something a little rusty, maybe some chipped paint, to hold my jelly jars of supplies. Once an antique shop owner asked me what I was looking for and I joked, "I think I'm looking for something that doesn't exist!" And then I saw it holding flower pots outside at The Greenery . . .
As you can see, I bought it . . .
Then dry-brushed it pale aqua (because everything looks amazing when it's painted pale aqua), making sure to keep hints of rust showing. I finished the project by spraying it with a clear coat to seal it all in.
On Mother's Day my husband hung it up in the Girlie Office and yesterday I moved the jars in (or on?).
I love the chicken wire backing . . .

On a recent post at Laurie Star, the talented Laurie shows the most adorable clothespin dolls she made with her daughter. GASP! So cute and I noticed that one named Jane was for sale at her Etsy shop. No hesitation whatsoever and now the little Jane doll is mine, cheering by my side.
I love all of the thoughtful details from head to toe, front and back.
Along with my doll, Laurie also sent me pretty earrings and one of her Funky Flower pins. Be sure to check out all of Laurie's cute and colorful things at her Etsy shop, Trinkets NH. Tell her Jane sent you!
