Cotton in the Summer

There is nothing so beautiful than a field of cotton.

Here in the South, there is an abundance of cotton fields for us to enjoy.

I love driving through the countryside at the peak of the cotton crop.

Such an amazing sight to see . . . like a snow covered field.

Doing the “Domino Dance” . . A Shelf and Ironstone

There was a mahogany shelf in the master bedroom above the wash stand . . .

~ ~ prior to the “Domino Dance” . . the “Relo Shuffle”

Adding a sitting area to the room, meant the shelf was banished to another area.

So I am walking . . . and we are walking . . .trying to find a place for the shelf.

And I found a space!

Can you guess ??? Do you need a hint?

The shelf replaced this vignette . . .

I added a third plate to the left side of the area . .

I am really loving this shelf in this area . . .

I would like to end this post to show you what I discover each time after my sweetie visits…

I think he has become the new “Waldo” . . . where will he appear next?…Where’s Waldo???

~ ~ However, my sweetie just thinks she is enhancing a vignette.

Hope you all have a most wonderful day . . . maybe you are doing the “domino dance” too !!!
