repurpose



a couple things:

1) great find on ebay and under $20. this little river and or lake scene takes me to one of my other places of perfect peace. high altitude forests with clear water lakes and rivers. many memories of family camping trips, fishing poles, gathering twigs and branches for the evening fires and you know the rest of the story..we all have one. oh, and the fresh air.
this was a pleasant surprise, as the ebay photo's were far from clear AND actually this little oil on board is more rich in color in person. a new cherished find.
i heart used and loved treasures.

2) a recent dinner included a very small portion of thyme in the recipe, but of course one has to buy a whole bundle just to get that tsp required. so, just as a reminder to those of you who use your fresh herbs....put them in little favorite containers and pinch the leaves as you walk buy....the fragrance can be so earth bound that one almost wants to inhale an entire plant.....
these little bouquets also have a long shelf life.

I just smelled the most wonderfu fennel candle yesterday at the garden shop!... and had to buy a whole basil plant to get some "fresh" for a recipe!

your painting is wonderful! enjoy!

The painting (congrats), the fresh thyme, the beautiful glass, all against the painted paneling make for a truly stunning and serene little scene. Works together perfectly...and now I'm off to find a cute vessel for my fresh tarragon!
