I hope everyone had a blessed Christmas and a fun New Years! Now that I've gotten all the Christmas decorations put away I took a step back and looked to see what I wanted to do with the blank slate. I thought something a little sunny to ward off the winter blues would be nice.
Every time I look at it, it makes me smile.
The basket is where we keep all of the dog toys. But, I took them out for the shoot because when I looked through the camera that's where my eye was drawn to.
The lanterns stayed where they were for Christmas.
My husband and daughter put their feet on the coffee table, therefore I try to keep it pretty simple, so I just put a couple fleu-de-lis and a little greenery on it.
This chair is almost like new and we got it the same time we got the couch and love seat. It's that way because, no one ever sets in it because you can't see the television.
At 66% off I couldn't resist these tuscan inspired jars when I was at Hobby Lobby the other day.
I didn't take a full view picture of the entry table but, this is a close-up view. I made the tassel last year. I made several with Cardinals, but this is the only one I have left.
Well, that's it for today. I hope to have some pictures of the kitchen soon. I found some stone I like for the backsplash. I saw it on a commercial for an electric company of all places. You can see it here Milestone Electric. I thought it kind of ironic that their name has "stone" in it. I went to my friend that owns a flooring company and he tracked it down for me. Now, I need to get started painting the cabinets and texturing the wall so when they get their part done I'll be ready for the big reveal.
