Well, I was inspired from the moment I saw my friend Shelley's post (Sweet Pea Home) where she rearranged some shelves using antique herbarium pages. I love herbariums, but, unfortunately, I had sold one that I had acquired (temporary breakdown I figure).
See her post here.
I have a vintage Audubon book with wonderful illustrations of birds.
I purchased the hanging cupboard from Shelley too!

I'm joining "Funky Junk" and "Miss Mustard Seed" in their Copy Me Challenge.
A while back I found the cutest little black stool for about $2 at a local thrift store, but it had a gold shag carpet on the top. Unfortunately, I didn't take before pics, but I think we can all imagine the shag carpet!
I decided to recover the top with a piece of vintage linen/flax fabric, and then I remembered Miss Mustard Seed's post on painting a faux grain sack.
So here's my final creation:
I'm linking up with Miss Mustard Seed's Copy Me Challenge Link Party
I love all the inspiration and information that is available in 'Blogland'.

I have always wanted a cupola.
I found one.
I love Craigslist.......
It's still in my van cause it's way too heavy for me!
It's 41" high.
The roof is copper with wonderfully aged patina!
Not sure how I'm going to use it....most likely I'll put it on a pole like a birdhouse.
Just 'cause it's so pretty, I wanted to share my camellia bush which is just loaded with blooms.
Aren't they pretty?
I've had a good day so far.
I had a catscan this morning......anxiously waiting any news about the cancer.
I'm sure it's all gone.
Things are good!
