Hey ya'll hope everyone had a great weekend lookie what I found this weekend
We have been cleaning out my daddy's old shop and these were buried in a corner covered in dirt .. They are McCoy flower pots 6 of them. The white ones haven't held up well but the others are perfect. They have been in his shop since my mother closed her florist in downtown Savannah over 35 years ago. The McCoy salesman would come around about once a month with a truck load of pottery. I remember begging momma to buy these I thought they were beautiful. That was long before McCoy became a collectors item. I think they are just as beautiful today as they were all those years ago.
My Annie Sloan Chalk Paint has arrived and I can't wait to get to painting. I'm just not sure what I want to paint first.. Thank you so much to Miss Virginia of The Southern Institute of Faux Finishing and her staff for being so helpful.
There is so many beautiful colors.. The color chart is hand painted ~ You can't get any better than that for color matching ..
As I was wondering around Saturday in my daddy's garden I found this pot of Confederate Jasmine. Tears welled up in my eyes immediately he had potted this up in the fall for me from cuttings off his gorgeous vines. Even though I have lots of jasmine myself he thought I needed more. Every year when the jasmine started to bloom he would call and let me know. I always made a point to stop by, we would sit in the swing talk about nothing while taking in all of that sweet, sweet jasmine fragrance .. Daddy your jasmine is full of buds and will be filling the air really soon with it's beautiful scents and I will be sitting in your swing thinking of you, missing you and trying to figure out where to plant another jasmine.. Sending kisses to heaven share them with bubba missing you both so much ..
