Heart or Mind

Plants brought inside yesterday
resting on the floor
as almost freezing for several days.
This ancient bird nest comes out of the storage room and rests in a big Fostoria bowl
seems same arrangement every year at this time.   Remember my youngest granddaughter
remarking as a toddler "grandma are their baby birds in those eggs?"
Inside and
arranging closet filled with ancient sweaters that are being put up at this time.
Store in tissue paper and plastic bags or containers with tops.   Keeps any critters away.
Also these items so old but better then what is in the stores at this time, of course now seldom
shop but son will have to take me as with weight loss seems jeans and slacks need to be a size
smaller.

I am thinking about much and the words continually go over in my mind
"do you go with your heart or mind?"
I think the heart....

Also will share
from Amazon ordered covers for these 55 year old wing chairs,
I like them
and less then $50

My son will smile
as I cover the seat with something to keep clean :)
growing up he always asked
why I covered everything
at times..

Thought about reupholstering
but the cost is terrific
and not in my budget.
I like the covers
and will do in this cottage at the edge of the woods.

New book arrived------

I think this look was called "shabby chic". I love it. Looks like unbleached cotton. Also your bird's nest.

I like the chair covers, too.
They look very comfortable/inviting.
Appeal to "heart".
I agree with you re. what is in stores today (although I am not much of a shopper either)...
Book title is going on my library hold list. Hope to read it soon.

Hallo Ernestine,

What a complicated journey to get here!
I put the name of your blog into Google and it came up immediately, but it is rather a roundabout way and must put many of your previous commenters off; that is, if they think of googling you in the first place.

I hope you are well in your cottage in the woods and manage to enjoy life.

Greetings from Friko

Good Morning. I "ditto" what Rebecca has written above. I'm feeling the energy of early spring and sending you love and hugs. :-)
