Happy Wednesday!

 Just sharing some new treasures!  A new sconce above, the colors on it are so pretty.  They were hard to capture with my camera.

 Some paper and millinery flowers, I'm not sure exactly what I'm going to make with them but I have some idea's:)

 Kyran and I went to our favorite little ice cream shoppe on Friday, it was jam packed so we had to park next to a dumpster...which just happened to have this cute little wicker table someone had been kind enough to toss out:)  My awesome hubby went in and grabbed it for me (after shaking off a huge lizard!).

 I gave it some fresh paint and voila, good as new!  The top's a little buckled so we're going to get a piece of glass cut for it.

 Now that I'm no longer using this trunk as my coffee table, it's hiding all the ugly t.v. cords.  I put a vintage tablecloth over it.

 Finally tracked down some White Brite and washed all my slipcovers.  Wow, that stuff really does the job!  Sadly, my grey pillowcase got tossed in the mix and is now a funky peachy color.  It's not too bad but I was bummed about it:(

Our Publix didn't carry Romantic Country, but we went to another Publix last weekend and I found it!  I was so happy and, of course, so extremely excited for sweet Stephanie from The Spanish Dahlia .  Her home is amazingly beautiful!

Hope everyone's enjoying their week!

Monday...around the nest!

Happy Monday!  Just sharing some new little treasures:)  As you can see, I'm building up my pink stuff.
Love the little salt and pepper shakers.

A little pink shell dish which I put some of my Sanibel Island shells in:)  And some lavender cups!  I was so excited to find them but kind of bummed there were only three.

A cute little framed floral, it's so tiny and darling!  Lastly, a House Blessing in a Florentine frame:)  I've run into a whole new world of inspiration on Instagram and am loving all the Florentine and bright colors there!

I hope everyone's having a great week!  Last weekend was the last weekend (did that make sense!?!?) that Kyran was off Fri/Sat.  Now he gets Sat/Sun off...for the first time in 9 years with Pepsi he gets a normal weekend!  So excited to have him home on a Sunday:)

Spring and lots of rain!

 It's raining...it rained most of the day yesterday and all through the night.  I got ants in my pants and recovered this chair.  The fabric is more pink than usual for me but I've been embracing pink lately:)

 I found these Tole roses on Etsy, the seller said they were originally part of a chandelier that was taken apart.

 I'm not sure what I'm going to do with them yet so, for now, they're sitting on our little coffee table:)

 More mercury glass candle holders!  I love the minty green color of these.

 This little table got "Spring-ified":)

I have gobs of paper flowers so, since it's a rainy-stay inside type of day, I'm going to make another little wreath:)  Hope everyone's enjoying their week!

Candle success, a new lamp and a Thank You:)

 
We hit a different Super Target this weekend and found the Rachel Ashwell candles!  I was so excited to find them:)  They smell so good!  

They didn't have any lamps so I was kind of bummed about that.  Later that afternoon, Kyran told me he was going to get some beer...he came home about 20 minutes later with with his beer AND the Rachel Ashwell lamp!!!  I was so happy I literally cried...a happy and very touched cry:)

I found this cute shelf on Etsy, it's so pretty!

Last, but definitely not least, a huge Thank You to Vanessa from Dreaming Shabby...she sent me this beautiful pillowcase!  It's so happy and Spring-y!  Made my day:)  It's gloomy and grey out today so this will definitely brighten things up!

Hope everyone's having a great week:)

Happy Almost Friday!





Not sure why but I've been moving things around like crazy this past week!  I moved the trunk I normally use as a coffee table and brought out my little piano bench:)  It's small but it works!

 A new Rachel Ashwell basket from Target, I'm still on a hunt for one that carries the candles...Ohhhh Kyran, guess what we're doing this weekend:)

 I brought this little table out of our bedroom and put it beside the sofa for more light.  As you can see, it's very close to our bedroom door but thankfully, we haven't bumped into it...yet!

My little bird made his way over here too:)

Hope everyone has a wonderful weekend!
