We finally had some sun yesterday and the week is looking good as well. Let’s hope it stays that way.
I added some new touches to the foyer on the Bombay chest. I made some French flower pots using some great transfers I found on Pinterest. I have to say using the Mod Podge method makes this so easy.
I added a nest to one with a sprig of lavender and a lavender ball to another. The French flower-pot I made a while back and added greens with tiny white flowers that I bought at Michael’s.
I also changed out the lamp with a lamp we used in our other home. I really like this one better.
You will notice a new piece in the foyer. My old shutter from an early 1900’s farmhouse from Pennsylvania. I made the purchase from A Rustic Garden on their Etsy shop. I used one of my small boxwood wreathes hung with some ribbon and I think it adds a nice touch. They have so many great things that I will be adding to the house slowly.
I was hoping to be able to find one while going antiquing but the reality is, my brace for my right leg helps but I am not able to walk as long as I hoped. Am I sad about this yes, but I have to accept the fact this the way it is in my life. It is still hard for me at times to deal with this emotionally. I was always out and about with John shopping for goodies.
So, I am trying to deal with the fact that I just have to shop in different ways and thrifting at stores and small shops that we used to love to go to is just not a reality. I am grateful for the ability to be able to take care of our home and be able to cook and take care of our life here.
Below I placed a lantern I purchased from PB and added a few lavender pinecones with some moss balls and put a pedestal underneath to give it some height.
On my Hitchcock chair that was my moms, I placed a pillow I purchased from Michael’s. They really have some great home décor items now a days.
These pictures may not be perfect. I purchased a new camera and I’m getting used to it so bare with me. For a second try I think I did pretty well.
We are heading outside to enjoy some fresh air with the pups this morning for coffee. It’s supposed to be gorgeous today.
I hope everyone is having a great end to the weekend. Enjoy.
