This is hanging over my kitche door that leads to my pantry to the garage. We transformed the utility room to a pantry and put the washer and dryer in the garage. It is generally so warm here we can do that, in the South. My husband and I downsized when we moved here, so space is valuable. Especially the way I decorate. LOL.
Another view of the top of my cabinets.
This is the top of my kitchen cabinets. If you notice the dried roses are my valentine roses my husband gave me this year. I save everything. LOL
This is a little corner in my kitchen. I found the wine bottle at Goodwill on Friday. It was a 1.91. I don't remember where I got the rooster plate. The little green cow, is another goodwill find for .99.
another picture of the mantle
I made some changes to my mantle counter top. If you look back at some my first post you will see it had just three items. The little apple I found at a yard sale this Saturday cost me a whooping .10. it gave me the inspiration to do some playing around. So I added the candle sticks and the apple plate and the little apple. I think it looks better. Did I mention I also like red. Actually I add the reds and burgandies for my husbands sake. I have alot of pink, but I want him to feel at home as well, even though he doesn't say any thing.
Up close of the bunnies and the little rose plate.
This is the decoration on a cupboard in my dining room. The little rose box I found at yard sale for 50 cents. It is a lefton. I bought the apothecary jars at Kirklands, the little purple and yellow rose plate I picked up for a .25 at a yard sale. The little bunnies were also a yard sale find for a 1.00. The lamp was one of m y husbands before we were married. I actually liked it, it was one of the few things we kept of his. He is a more modern decorator, but he tolerates me. He actually is okay with it, he could care less about the house. He is a golfer, and thats what matters to him.
This is a picture that is hanging in my entry way over my entry way table. I apologize for the glare. I am not a great photographer, just a good therapist. LOL
This little cherub on a pedastal , I bought at the church sale to for 50 cents. I am going to paint the pedastal Ivory , I have a thing for Ivory and pink.........I donna know.....
This is a better view of the purple rose box I bought at the church sale the other day.

  4. Susan,

    Thank you for your sweet comments on the loss of my diamond. It's wonderful to have friends who understand.

  5. You have so many pretties! Great bargains too! I like the vignettes over the cabinets, and on the mantle!

    Thanks for sharing with us!


  6. Lots of great decor ideas, all very pretty!

    Happy Rednesday!

  7. It's all very beautiful !

  8. Everything is just so pretty. The tin plaque with the little girl on it in I think the second and third pic is identical to one my mother had. I wish I had it now and i do so agree with you about retirement. I am so ready to play full time wife and home maker. After 32 years of working full time, I am so ready. But I have at least 10 more years to go unless I end up on disability from working full time!!! LOL!!!

  9. Susan, your home is so lovely! And you got great deals on alot of your treasures too. I'm also trying to go through my things and putting some of it aside for my friend's garage sale. It's hard work, but you've got a great attitude about it all!
    Happy REDnesday!

  10. I love your decor! It's so pretty and feminine! I have to jokingly say that if your husband doesn't like your pinks, tell him to decorate the basement!

  11. Your reds are pretty, Susan. And I love all your great GW (and other places) finds. Everyone needs a good therapist! ;) Happy REDnesday~

  12. Such a lovely array of things! Love the little touches of red everywhere!

  13. Thanks for visiting my blog. I really hate housecleaning, but sometimes you get in the mood! I like your pretty little bunnies. So springy!

  14. I know how you feel about Sundays - I totally used to get depressed Sunday night because I had to go to work the next day!
