WHITE GOODIES!

All of the summer blooms are putting me in such a happy mood.  WHO can not be happy with fresh flowers in the house!  BUT, this HEAT is slooowing us down.  It just zaps your energy like a sponge.  We have several projects that are on hold while we've been lazing around doing a whole lotta nuthin'!  Tomorrow I'm MAKING myself work on my mannequin project. I know she's going to be SO pretty, I can't wait!  I HAVE had time to do a bit of flea marketing. So not only am I adding to my collection and my store, but also my WAIST LINE because it's SO DAGGUM HOT, that I usually end up buying an ice cream on the way home!  EKK!  I scored the vases above plus some other great goodies at 3 different places!  It was kind of weird that some of vases have a sister pattern to match, not a perfect match but close, like fraternal twins! I can't wait to get a couple blooms at the grocery (yes, I OFTEN buy my flowers there!) and use a few of my milk glass vases for a little vignette.

IN OTHER NEWS:  This is about my back, if you are a frequent reader than you know I've been having a bit of trouble the past two years with my back. 

I went for my 3 month post op today with my surgeon.  He suggested I have several epidural injections for my pain. Because my surgery was the 3rd one in the exact area, he didn't think it was too unusual that I am still in this amount of pain.  My father says I've always been a PAIN so maybe this is Karma!  LOL I'm not really looking forward to that.  Read this or the end of THIS and you'll know why.
EDIT:   I want you all to know how much your love and support mean to me.  Waking up this morning to so many sweet comments just made my day!  I do not put a lot about my back on here because I definitely do NOT want to be a Debbie Downer and I think a positive attitude (I try to keep it!) makes a huge difference in your life.  So... THANK YOU from the bottom of my heart!
I'm linking these little white beauties to WHITE WEDNESDAY at FADED CHARM

Robyn, I have been reading your blog from time to time for a few months now. I am usually drawn back to it for more than your talent in design. The story of your journey to be free from pain has touched my heart. I want you to know that I am going to be praying for you...asking God to heal you. Even if you are not a believer in miracles I am and HE hears my prayers. When you are down remember I am lifting your name UP :)

I am sorry to read of the pain, I know body pain, not that kind, so I do feel for you. The constant doctors and wanting it to go away. I hope that they are able to find a way to make it stop.

I'm sorry to hear you have back problems. Things like that run in my family, so I've seen it up close and personal. I hope the injections help.

Dear Robyn, I follow your blog since a few months, but from your post I discovered that you are a sensible woman and full of love for people around you.

Erica.

Love your beautiful whites, Robyn! And I'm sorry to hear about your health problems. I live with Fibromyalgia myself so I know a thing or two about chronic pain! But isn't it lovely to have the support of our wonderful blogging friends?

I'm wishing you gentler days ahead...
