I have so many photos pending..for not really anything important..so I better share what I have tried..and trued..
My blooming teas bring me peace and quiet and pretty.
I have to say I was delighted when my order from TMart arrived.
I took a chance as I had never ordered from there before..used Paypal..and my teas arrived in perfect shape..beautifully wrapped..ind.packaged.
Well worth the wait..:)Long wait..it's not next door..I have ordered again..hope my experience is the same.
(They don't know me..didn't ask me to write this..they don't know:) )
I will soon start my indoor seeds but until then my indoor plants and teas keep me in the blooms;)
Stitching too..and I am still so grateful to each and everyone of you who led the way~
My bunting cozy is not great..lol but my Varage Sale Pom~po~nettes are♥
I wanted blue and white stripe,had no blue;)
Celeriac..gosh I love that and do not buy it often enough.. just grate it..I use my mom's Vintage one ..table top hand cranked..heavy metal:)
Add mayo..lemon juice..s. p., garlic....just go here..she'll tell you:)Ina Ina Ina..♥
I finally found some spray balsamic..love that on tomatoes..salads..etc..
All of you who hesitate w/ IG..
I joined YEARS ago.. never looked ..lol..
Last year ..and a half ago about..I got into it through my daughter..followed her account until I just loved it so much I had to re register and really look into it all.
Amazingly wonderful..so much so I told my daughters ..it's a bit of
of a conundrum..
The glorious photos..
the wonderful gorgeous homes..
the flawless beauties.
I am not into competition or envy..and never was..in fact I shied away from awards and such..wait..in my teens I was into it..
it's later..that all that seemed awful to me..for me.
And I am sure Jacques had a lot to do with that.
He never compared himself or what he accmplishes with anyone..he always told me..it is how I feel about myself..remember he was 33 I was 19..so he kind of ingrained that into me..
I do know there was an applause I craved to hear..but never would (Anna Quindlen..talks about that in an article..I am going to try and attch it here someway for you)
I have had it since 1998.
I treasure it.
Ok I went off track a bit..
I think of people who may be affected but all of IG ..and feel less than..for no reason at all..
we see a lot that is smoke and mirrors.
I just show what worked on my blog and IG....and even at that.I sharpen my pics..adjust the exposure..etc..so there's smoke and mirrors there.
I show what grew in my gardens..not the ugly brown patches..;)
And I have them.
I show you which recipes worked;)
Not the fails..
It's not really that I am bla bla blahing about..
It's all the filtered faces..all the homes that are impeccably white and Pottery Barned and Crate and Barreled..how does that happen w/ Littles ..lol..
and the clothes..
All the Rae Dunn:) All the pretty, chippy things..
that part of social media..seems to me to be so negative for people.
If what others have and you don't affects you.
If seeing great talents makes you feel less than.
If you're inspired that's GREAT.
But if it makes you sad..not so much..
So just remember not everything you see.. is real:)
I am however totally guilty of coveting things:)That I don't need..but love or find charming..
That's normal right?;);)
