WELCOME TO ~~FOR HEART AND HOME~~

Welcome to my blog ~For Heart and Home~. Thank you to my dear friend Linda from New York who took the pictures I sent her and made this beautiful banner for me. I visualized what I wanted it to look like and she made it happen. That is my sister and I as youngsters and yes, that is the home I grew up in during the 40's and 50's. Right about now, you are all probably saying, my goodness she is old. I am vintage, just like fine old lace. Thank you also to my good friend Debbi, from Oregon who answered questions non stop while I was trying to navigate the workings of the blog world. What is so wonderful is that friendships can reach across the miles and even tho we have never seen each other in person - through the wonders of the computer, we have developed that bond. Also, a big thank you to my good friend Mona also from New York, who often helps me after I have totally screwed something up on the computer. I feel very Blessed to have you all as my friends. Thank you and I hope everyone enjoys my blog. I know I will.

FOR MOTHER'S DAY - NOW FOR SOMETHING DIFFERENT



If you are anything like me, I am always looking for the different and unusual to give as a gift - be it mother's day, birthdays or that just because gift. I think I have solved the problem with this wonderful vintage four tiered plant stand. I also refer to it as a novelty table because there are really many other uses for it, other than plants. So many of us are into collectibles now that it would be perfect for displaying your dolls, teddy bears or the like.

When I rescued this little table it was in very sad shape and after bringing it home, I really had to wonder about my choice of this purchase. After sanding and sanding some more - priming and painting it started to come alive. The rebirth really took place once the roses and greenery started to go on and with the gold leaf accents, something beautiful really began to emerge. I am thrilled with this little table and just know it would bring a smile to someone's face this Mother's Day. If you would like to know more about this little treasure please go here.

This is over the top gorgeous Sandi. I know it won't last long, the roses you painted are perfect. This piece won't last long I'm sure. Some lucky person will be blessed to have it in their home, Char

It turned out so beautiful. The roses just add to the piece and is almost to pretty to set something on it covering up your hand work. Awesome.
