Hi everyone! Hope you are all doing okay with the cold weather and snow, boy, was it cold last night when I left work at 10PM the wind was blowing so hard and making it even colder. Thank goodness I made it home safely!
I have been busy with the hutch/china cabinet just have to get new hardware for it and it will be done, took me awhile but I’m loven it and wish I’d got to do it sooner. Two pieces of furniture have to be moved out of the dining room before I show it to you. I’m sure it will make the dining room look alot bigger.
I ’d like to show you some neat things I’ve found at Marshall’s and GW. Going around the bend from one aisle to another I stopped the cart when my eyes saw this square trunk, they had a bigger one but I sorted of liked the smaller one and at $26.00 I was happy I thought it would be alot more.
I love the postage look to it, I’m so thrilled to have it, I just put it here for now…I don’t know which way I’m going with my decorating, I like shabby chic but not to much of the frilly stuff, I love Pottery Barn too so I guess it going to be a mixture of both and that’s okay because I’m having so much fun♥
I found this topiary on clearance for $7.00, you can’t tell from the photo but the container is distressed, they only had one wish it had been two so I could put one on each side of the mantel. Maybe someday I’ll find another…maybe at GW? Wouldn’t surprise me! I just noticed the nails for the Christmas stockings.LOL Have to get rid of those!
Now for GW!
I don’t know what it is, plant stand maybe? It was only $2.99 and I figured I could paint it (which I probably will, I’m dangerous with a paintbrush lately) right now it’s black and silver. I think it would look great on the porch this spring too, if that ever comes!
I found these Christmas salad plates at GW for .50 a piece, there were 4, I have it sitting in my cupboard, I thought they would be pretty with the ironstone I have if I don’t want to use the snowflake dishes. I don’t even want to think of Christmas 2011 :)
Here’s the writing on the back date is 1982.
Well, I have meatballs on for supper, spaghetti for tonight, Chris is here and wanted some, what to do, he’s my baby even at 30! LOL
Hopefully I’ll be back soon to show you the dining room, Sunday is Super Bowl Sunday so we will be having a party here to celebrate the the champs…I mean Steelers:)
