A Day Of Random Putterin'

What do you do when it is windy, rainy and cold outside?
Well, I putter around the house.
Today I puttered with the camera in my hands.
See that little birdhouse in the front? That is a gift from sweet Elyse!
She made it all up with graphics from my blog. Above it hangs a darling
little picture made by talented Cherry! In January, Cherry and I had a swap and this is just one of the lovely things she made for me. Thank you girls!
Pictures on a kitchen wall...
..and in that grouping is a motto that my dear friend, Jean (in Roanoke, Virginia)
recently sent to me. I just love the pink cottage! Thank you, Jean!
Miss Kitty is oblivious to the puttering ....or is she? She thinks I cannot see her if she covers her eye with her paw.
A view out our kitchen window....no sunshine here in the sunshine state!
Snippets of a cabinet reorganization.
A favorite shade...
..a new "old" tin box with roses...
..a little pillow I purchased for our guestroom bed.
Even Miss Matilda got a little scottie pin added to her dress for Easter...
...and she has the skinniest legs!
The base of an old table in the half bathroom...
...and a little vignette on the shelf above.
Which apron shall I wear today?
Cherry gave me the sweet card that sits in an old frog behind this little Britain flowering girl and dog house.Little soaps, if you need one, sit on the shelf in the laundry room.
Little pincushions atop an old box. See the enamelware one? My fellow Boston Red Sox fan friend, Patrice, made this and gave it to me! Isn't it cute? What a great idea, too! Thank you, Patrice! It goes nicely with a little scottie pincushion that I bought from my friend, Denise.
A little birdie, a gift from my friend Kathy Long, watches over the eggs.
Hi Ho, Hi Ho, it's off to work I go....
What do you call working around your house?
Puttering?
Putzing?
Fluffing?
Momma's Job?
Plain NO FUN at all?
Do tell......
In the meantime, I need to go and wash the paint off of my fingers....
Honey, get me a bar of soap, please!
tootles......

I feel like I was snooping.. but darn if it wasn't fun!!

Fantastic pictures and I love how random they were. Go Red Sox. Love your kitty photo!!! All the photos are pretty.

Putzing since you asked. :)

Vee said...

Wow! I am amazed at the beautiful shots even on a rainy day. Rainy days here mean dark photos. Not there!

Thank you for showing us so many sweet vignettes. Have you heard about the Romantic Vignette party that Whispering Poppies is doing on April 15? You'd be a natural! (There's a link on my sidebar.)

Becky, I am so glad you puttered with your camera along to share with us. I love all your vignettes. I love your kitty being so relaxed. Miss Fiona must not have been close by. Yes mam, Cherry is a very talented and sweet lady. The weather is supposed to improve here in virginia this weekend if we can get thru the thunderstorms tonight. You have a wonderful Easter weekend.
Love and hugs,
Jean in virginia

Lots of pure loveliness in your sweet cottage post. Puttering is such a relaxing endeavor especially when home all alone. Mindless...mindfulness, if that makes any sense!!!!

I "putter" around the house when I get bored. I should do it more often and change things around. I like the view from your kitchen window. The landscaping really looks nice.
Miss Kitty looks all cozy. That's cute that she thinks you can't see her if she covers her eyes.
I really like the pillow you found for your guest room. So pretty.
Happy Easter.

LillySue said...

Happy Easter Blessings~ LillySue

starsfault said...

I love it when kitties tuck their paws over their face. My little Binx does it all the time. So sweet.

I have puttering planned for today myself, and very much looking forward to it!

Susie Q said...

You know how much I love your home...each spot, every space, this treasure, that trinket...I sigh and smile at them all.
I always say I am tweaking or poofing, fitzing and puttering. I wish I had more time than I do to do that know but it does get accomplished every now and then!
W are having one of those rainy and chilly days today. Hmm...maybe I need to go fitz and putt..*laugh*

Love to you all,
Sue
