Good Evening Friends!
Has this week end gone fast or what? I spent most of the weekend purging things out of drawers and closets. I am taking them to Goodwill tomorrow. Is my SUV going to be packed,but lots of junk will be gone. I made a resolution to purge this year. I still have a lot more to do.
Hope you enjoy the photos of my playing around again this weekend. I love to decorate. I just wish I was better at being creative. But I think I do pretty good for someone with no talent. LOL
Here I go again, tweaking the dang entertainment center again. I love the piece it self, but I can not for the life of me get the decorations on top to satisfy me. This is going to have to do for awhile, until I can come up with a better vision, LOL
I know, I know the bowl in the middle is not centered. I fixed it after the photo was taken. I also rearranged the shelves on the bottom. I realized I did not replace the vase I had on the top shelf. I left it setting on the second shelf and took the photo.
I shopped the house for this small lamp. My hubbie has the black speaker boxes and other electrical boxes setting around the family room , on the entertainment center and the kitchen bar. I hate them, but I love the hubbie so I compromise.
I spray painted a wooden square bowl,ORB. Then I turned it over and sat the champagne bucket with flowers on top. I thought it would look better with some height.
I found the two old books at yard sale this weekend. They were 50 cents. I removed the large lamps and replace it with this smaller one. The flowers and candlesticks with the birds I kept in the vignette.
This is a little vignette I put together and placed on a trunk I have in the sun room.
The plate I found at a yard sale last summer. The photo is of me and hubby,the first year we went to Jamaica. I was a blond then.
The tea set is one my son brought back from Okinawa when he was stationed there. I cherish it dearly.
The lamp I found at Ole Time Pottery. It had a gold base,and of course the gold had to be replaced with ORB.
This bench was my yard sale find this weekend. When I brought it home it was a beat up brown color, a light maple or something. It was ugly. It also had one of the arms pulled loose from the back and a spindle loose as well. Being the handy man my hubbie is, he fixed the arm and spindle. Then he painted it of course Oil Rubbed Bronze. Not bad for a ten dollar bench eh?
When I brought it home he ask me where did I think I was going to put it in the house. He said somethings gotta go. He brought it into the house and placed it against this wall in the entry way. He said , hey this looks good here. No more talk of me getting rid of something. LOL
