Im going to join in for ~ Vintage Inspiration Friday ~ it would be nice to join in for today. And also for ~ Creating Vintage Charm ~ hosted by Sonia Crouse. Most of our paintings are Victorian up to the early 20s. And most likley painted by women who had the leisure of passing their day with painting. I can picture them now sitting in the garden with a paint brush in one hand. And the sound of birds in the back ground, while they paint. Some women painted on tables and others on chairs with floral scenes.
We picked them up in shops and flea markets on our travel's across the U.S. since we have been collecting.
I like this oil becuase of the wild roses growing up the rustic fence post.

In this first photo it is all complete with a pair of vintage white chaise lounge chairs we picked up at a garage sale two years ago. They are probably from the 50s or early 60s. Tallulah decided to sneak in the picture, she is sitting on the top terrace on a chair. Isn't she cute, she loves to get in the pictures!
In this photo the work is just beginning to take shape. We have a little orchard to the right in the picture is a Lemon tree and Trangerine trees. we also have a couple of Grape vines and Banana tree, Pink Lemon tree and a Orange tree
On the terrace garden we have plants in pots some Palms and Geraniums and some other plants such as Mint and Lemon balm. Raymond Loves to add the Lemon balm to his sweet tea.
