Pretty stuff around the house today
Most rooms are kind of kid/toy trashed. Once a week I get it absolutely all picked up. But two days later it's a sea of toys again, except for my dining room, one of my favorite rooms. When we moved in our house had been in foreclosure before we got it and the light fixtures had been stolen. It took me a year to find the perfect chandelier but I finally did. Every single day I look at it it makes me happy, very happy. All I need is a rug now but I'm just as picky about that as I was about the chandelier. And some stuff on either side of the mirror, maybe just white plates. Adam just recently surprised me with the mirror. He knew I wanted it and when I decided it wasn't going to happen I threw the catalog in the trash. Adam got the catalog out later and ordered it for me. Did I mention he's the best? Wait til I tell you what he did for me for Valentine's day.
The other photo is my grouping of vintage frames and botanicals mixed with a tole tray and two of those sweet little floral photos like those silhouette ones you see so often. Two of the prints came from ebay for 3.00 a piece but one of them is pretty old supposedly, around mid 1800s, and it was 20.00 on ebay. So, this is my decorated mantle for spring (guess I need to take the metal "Merry Winter" sign down, lol).
