Out and About in Macon..

The International Cherry Blossom Festival has started here in Macon and will go on for the next 2 weeks. Besides all of the lovely pink trees, there are pink bows and pink wreaths everywhere. The city goes all out for this. I didn't quite get all the fuss last year when we moved here, but this year, knowing more about the city and where to go, WOW! We stopped briefly yesterday at Wesleyan College and took a few photos of some beautiful trees. Standing under these trees in full bloom was so wonderful. I was surrounded by flowers. It was magical.



After leaving this beauty, we went to a store I have been hearing about, but had never gone. It is called "Tuesday Morning." This store is open Tuesday mornings only. Each week they get new merchandise and sell it at big discounted prices. The first Tuesday of the month, they have a sale which means even bigger bargains. I found a few wonderful pieces all for under $40. They are now additions to my studio. I took a few pics to share my finds with you! I have plans for this birdhouse. I want to paint it and add lots of bling. I was inspired lately by the Bling your Birdhouse Challenge that recently went on.

This was in the after Easter fire sale section. It has such a vintagy feel to it. The half egg is a cup. I am going to use it to hold what nots on my shelf. This two-tiered server has wonderful glass plates that are made to look like depression glass. The pretty blue stand just makes it so sweet. I have nothing blue in my studio for it to match with, but I just love it anyway. I have it on my sewing table with buttons, boobins, etc. on it.This cast iron cherub with the bird is lovely. I perched it up on my shelf over my desk to look down on me. It reminds me of sweet, simple days.

I will definitely be going back to "Tuesday Morning."
