Hello Friends! My oh my it seems its been forever ago since I have posted a new post on my blog. But today I thought I would share a few of the vignettes I have in my family room. I generally stick to the jewel or earth tones in this room. I hope every one had a blessed week! Hope you enjoy! Fire place Mantle! I found the large picture hanging above the fire place at Kirkland's. It was on clearance for a steal! The candlesticks are yard sale finds, I have had them for years. The orbs on the candlesticks are from Ross. I added the two little candle votive's for some sparkle appeal. The two transferware plates I found at a yard sale several years ago. I needed some femininity to this masculine display , so I added the two little hydrangea planters.

Good Afternoon my friends! I have not updated my blog in a while. I have had plenty to blog about but no energy to post. I continue to struggle with my health issues. I am looking forward to a better year. I look forward to a year of tweaking and creating and making my home into a warm and inviting place to be. I hope you enjoy the photos of my kitchen nook. Kitchen Table I needed a change in my kitchen. I had the red gingham curtains in there for two years that we have lived here. I decided to utilize some things I had on hand to make a mini redo in my kitchen nook. I bought the black and white waverly table cloth at TJ Maxx several months ago. I had the lace table topper for many years. It was most likely a yard sale find. The white rooster butter dish and gravy boat was on clearance at Sears. I had the black bowl and decided to place a red candle. Instead of so much red in the kitchen, I thought just little pops with the black and white would be nice.
