Happy weekend everyone. I wanted to share our eating area for spring. I used many of my favorite things in this spot.
You may realize by my blog name I have a love of cloches and lavender, see how I worked my name in there? I adore lavender, the smell and beauty it has whether fresh or dried. It’s in our home all the time.
Funny, I enjoy lavender so much because when I get a fresh dried bunch it puts my allergies in overdrive. My trick, I put it a bit of distance away from me for a few days and I’m good to go.
One of my other loves is hydrangeas and who doesn’t adore them? Fresh or dried I’m a fan and can’t wait for them to bloom every year.
Other pieces I love are the pieces from my smallish collection of antiques I have collected. The antique French crate is a love of mine as well as the vintage clay pots and cloche bottom.
My compote shipped from France is another favorite and has found it’s happy place on this small table I painted a few years ago.
This antique shutter is another favorite of mine and I made the sign attached. I have fun playing with different techniques and stencils. Loving this stencil, I decided to use joint compound mixed with paint to achieve the color I wanted and applied it with a putty knife. I enjoy this because it elevates a simple stencil giving it dimension.
Hope you enjoyed the view and enjoy your weekend.
