New finds……


Today I am sharing a couple of new goodies

I found for the living room.

The first item is this fur I placed on the ottoman.

So incredibly soft……

The second item is this chippy shutter I found at the antique market a few weeks ago.

I love the narrow size….it fits the wall just perfectly!

It’s going to be a scorcher!


The beautiful weather we had

last week has passed and the heat is back!

Today it is going to be 100* and we are under a heat advisory!

It was nice to have a break though even if only for a week!

Peaceful Sunday……


old chapel, near trees and maybe mountains - attended a lovely wedding there



I wish I were dancing
Floating across the floor
He is wearing a suit
I, a gown
The music, sweet and melodious
Finds me twirling in a fantasy land
Filled with happiness
His warm embrace
Tickles my senses
And my heart surges forward
And then
As I am looking into his eyes
Searching every corner of his perfect soul
I stop
And realize that I'm not in a ballroom
Not in a gown
I'm just standing, staring into his eyes
And I'm dancing

The weather here this

week has been absolutely beautiful!!!!

I only wish we could have one week like this a month.

It would sure make the scorching

summer temperatures a lot more tolerable.

A finishing touch……

I picked up two sets of sconces while at the antique market last week.

I really had no intention of buying them

but they were such a good deal I just couldn’t resist!

I started off with the smaller set but the seller offered me such a good deal

on the bigger set too that I decided to buy all of them.

I had no idea where I was going to use them when I bought them

but I knew I would find a spot for them.

I decided to use one in the dining room under the ironstone platters.

I think it adds a nice finishing touch?

Untitled 4

I have another spot in mind for the other sconce that matches this one.

I haven’t decided where the larger set will go yet?!?!
