I have been down for the count with a back issue.  I have never had back issues until this past week.  I had an MRI today and am hoping for some news soon so I can fix my problem and get back to life!!!!! I can't sit at my computer for long so here is a short little post today.  I was going crazy laying around so needed to do a short post.
This is the chippy little tea cart I got in Morris awhile back at one of my favorite shops called Vintage. I loved her the moment I set eyes on her.  I was not sure what I was going to do with her just knew she needed to come home with me.




I placed her under my old chippy barn door in my dining room. I thought the two chippies needed to be together.

I decorated her up with an old wooden tray and some of my white tea set and some pretty flowers.

This old picnic basket was my grandmothers so found a place for it on the old tea cart.  Not too big of a post but it felt good to get on the blog for a little while today.  Thanks for coming by.

  1. Oooh, so sorry to hear you are having back issues, Kris. I just get sore in recent years, and especially now when I've picked up my granddaughter. Your cart looks cart. Your tray and the picnic basket fit in it perfectly. Love your white tea set, too.

    1. Hi Vickie,
      I have never had any back issues so this has been a drain on me this week. The MRI showed some bulging discs. So I will start some physical therapy. Hope that will help. Thanks for your kind thoughts.

  8. I hope you feel better soon, sweetie. Do you remember straining it at all? I hurt my back carrying my luggage years ago and it's never been the same. I hope the MRI gives you some answers.

    I love that tea cart. We went to Morris years ago and I fell in love with all the shops...I'd love to go again.

    Take care now and rest!

    XO,
    Jane

  11. So sorry to hear about your back problems. I have been struggling with back troubles for 2 years now and it is the no fun when your back acts up. I've had shots in my back and other treatments. Sometimes I can go for months with no problems and then can have problems for weeks on end. I hope that the physical therapy helps you to feel better real soon.
    Love the tea cart...and how you decorated it!!
    hugs,
    Cindy

    1. Hi Leena,
      Yep it is official I am old... I got tell you I am 54 going on 84 some days. The MRI showed bulging discs in my lower back so I will start some physical therapy next week and we will go from there. Hopefully that will be enough and I will not have to have any further invasive stuff done. Thanks for the good wishes.
