Snowy February

Hi everyone! Well, we woke up to more snow and the schools had a two hour delay!
Plus cold temps…someday it will be over and I can look out my window and see green.LOL
In the meantime I’ve been playing around the rooms in my home,  seeing what I like and
don’t like. In the livingroom I didn’t like the burlap and red lampshade that was on the
lamp so I had this lamp in my stash and decided to use it instead, the lamp that was there
originally is now in the guestroom and the snowball wreath is hanging in there, I’ll be so
happy when I put that away! Anyway, I think this lampshade goes with the black and white
I have going on in the room!

I finally decided to paint the bamboo mirror, my hubs spray-painted
it in the garage for me since it was so cold out, I used flat black, do
you think I should have used the enamel one?

Here is my mantel nothing spectacular but you can tell I do love the black
and white.

Here is some cute vases from Target a few years ago in their dollar
section. Also the little tureen that I found at Goodwill a while ago!

Well, that’s what I’ve been up to all week, this type of weather makes me
so sleepy how about you?

I’ll be joining these parties:

I love this! Your black accents are so refreshing...everything seems to be "white" lately. The mirror is perfect. I've always wanted to use my soup tureen somewhere...not sure where. It certainly doesn't get any use on my table! :)

Love the lamp with the black and white shade. Love the mirror frame painted black too.

The lamp shade is perfect! It goes so well with all your pretty black & whites.

It looks so pretty, Rondell. You do such a nice job on everything.
It's a snowy February in WI, too. I am so glad for a few days break from that weather. xo Diana

I like your black and white color scheme in the living room. that shade definitely works better in there. I like how you've layered pretty things on your mantel in that same color scheme too. the flowers help soften the look as well.

Beautiful! I love that soup tureen! Thanks for joining Home Sweet Home!

I also like the black and white too, not into the whole white thing going on. The shade looks so pretty in the room. Hope by now the snow has stopped. Remember it will be spring once again.
