Wandering Around My Favorite Store

I went to my favorite store last week in Tulsa to find they had a sale going on. Only, it was the last day (had been going on the month of July). I found a mirror, but left without it and couldn't get it out of my head. More later. I found these French linen panels that had to be at least 14 feet long and loved them. Now, I live on a fifty acre hilltop farm wreathed in oak trees, and don't have one curtain in my house.

But, I am such a nature girl, I just loved these panels; the flora and fauna; the caterpillars and beetles, ferns and fronds.

I dunno.

There were many more things, like this old painted chest with the red japanning inside. But, I still want my mirror. It had been 40% off during the sale. She now would take 20% off. So I walked. It will be one of those things I'll remember.


  1. With your art-You need that 1st panel for inspiration- Stretch it on a canvas and hang it in a stairway. OR use to recover something - Get that, How much was it by the way-If you don't I might. Gaye

  2. Gaye, I'm such a cheapskate sometimes. $160. per panel.

  3. Hi Donna

    How are you? Are you still hot over there.
    Here already started on a clear day. Only when night falls and the sun goes cold and I start turning on the heating.

    I tell you that I knitted my daughter a coat. I would like to do something to crochet, but have not yet learned.

    What a lovely shade of butterflies have! I really liked.

    Take care and affection from Santiago de Chile.
