First make sure you go check out Tidymom's Giveaway's for today. She's giving a way some wonderful things this week !Just thought I'd share some pictures of areas I've been working on around the house. I think I'm about done with this area at one end of my living room. You'll all have to give me your opinions. Do I have too much at this end of the room or not ? I like it, but I always wonder how others will see it. Here is the Buttery sign I've been waiting on for 4 weeks. It finally came today and I LOVE it !
Here is the Dry Goods sign that I put above my fridge hanging on my printers drawer. This area is not completely done yet. I have another large jar to fill with dried pears to put behind the small jar. I also have a sugar cone coming that I think might look good on the scale. We'll see.
This is the one end of my living room that I have been working on and I'm happy with how it all came together. I love sitting on my couch and looking right at all these things that I love. :-)
I got this old table in February at Weathered and Worn. I love the color. I think it really softens up this area. The coverlet is from Family Heirloom Weavers.
This little cutting board with the pantry cake and the candlestick are from Circa 1892 Homestead Primitives on Ebay. I love her gatherings ! She doesn't have any listings right now, but when she does they are wonderful ! These flowers are from Michael's. They were 50 % off the other day, so I grabbed 3 bunches for my crock.
I finally got my Mercantile sign :-)
This candle ledge is a lot bigger than I imagined, but I'm loving it ! The grungy candle is one that my friend Jamie from Miller Homestead gave me a couple months ago when I was visiting in Illinois. It was a much brighter yellow ( she called it the nacho cheese candle ). It smells wonderful ! I decided to darken it up by using mod podge and some cinnamon and pumpkin pie spice. The darker color works better in this area now. Thank you for this candle Jamie !
I found this high chair at Wildhorse Antiques in Plattsmouth yesterday. I saw it a few weeks ago and couldn't decide if I wanted it or not and it was still there. I'm glad I got it ! My bunny fits great in it !
The whole area ~ it looks cozier in person. Wanna stop by for coffee so you can see it better ?! :-)
That would be fun if all of you blog friends could stop by for a visit ! I'd like to replace the quilt on the ladder with a coverlet some day. Just not sure what coverlet. I guess I'll know when I see it !
These are just some flowers in a crock on one of the side tables in my living room. I sat the crock in an old box and added some wooden eggs.
Here is Abe in my dining room patiently waiting for George to get here. They tell me he should be in sometime in the next week or two.
I love this Abe Lincoln quote ! This is hanging in my dining room also. Palmer Falls makes the best signs ever !
I was really surprised to find this at Gordman's last week. It is a Primitives by Kathy stitchery and was on sale for $7. I snatched it up right away ! Gordman's actually has some pretty good prim things . This is the only primitive item I've bought there, but I will have to stop by and look more often.
A set of bowls I got in Plattsmouth yesterday for $12
A couple of labels I've added to some of my jars. Well, that's it for tonight. Thanks for being patient enough to look at all these pictures ! Have a great night !
