First we’ll talk about the pansies hiding underneath my hosta plants. I planted them there before the hostas “took over.” Now I think of them as fairies hiding in the forest.
The little Johnny Jump Ups and pansies are now hiding deep in their magical world. Where hosta plants grow big and cover them, hiding them from any foes.
And what kind of foes would these pixie-faced flowers have, you may ask?
Well, any critters that might eat them, I suppose.
The above photo was taken a day or so ago. And in that time it rained and the hosta plants and then spread to cover them for the most part. As you can see in the photo below.
A Garden Fairy Tale:
So, like a princess up in a safe tower, or in this case many princesses, my sweet little flowers will hide from the sun.
And as they are cool weather flowers, maybe they will stick around a little longer, having the hosta plants for shade.
I will likely have to bend down and lift the leaves to see my flowers. And continue my fairy tale about them in my head, as I am wont to do.
Tuesday Morning Finds:
And now for my Tuesday Morning finds.
As soon as I glimpsed these lamps down at the end of the store my cart magically, as though with a mind of its own, led me toward them.
A Smallish Aqua Lamp:
They immediately reminded me of the vintage aqua bottles I love to collect when I can find them. And I love the wood detailing as well.
Because for some strange reason they had the wrong sticker on the lamp, I got it for $21 instead of $29.99.
Then onward to cover the rest of the store. You never know what’s just waiting to be discovered on Tuesday Morning’s aisles, as shipments come in every week.
A Boho Hanging:
I’d been trying to find something to hang here. I never seem to have luck with hanging plants. So this was the perfect solution.
Isn’t it cute? It was $14.99.
My Abiding Love Of Tuesday Morning Stores:
I love Tuesday Morning. It is like going on a treasure hunt.
You often find a clearance sale at the end of the aisles. Or you might find something wonderful in what appears to be the wrong place entirely.
Shipments come in and are spread throughout the store. And when something is gone you probably won’t see it shipped to the store again.
So if you want something you’d better grab it because it probably won’t be there if you come back a few days later.
Any way you look at it, Tuesday Morning is a fun store to shop.
Here are two photos I got of the pet babies this morning.
Charlie doesn’t like the camera and shies away from it, but Ivy is either preening or oblivious to it.
Ivy is like any true actress. Dramatic and often posing.
All the while trying to appear as though she isn’t aware that I’m standing in front of her with my camera.
And a star is born.
