A snippet of the laundry room

laundry room 2 002

Originally I was going to take pictures of the

master bathroom to share with you today.

However the toilet bowl cracked late

last night and the floor is now covered with towels!!!!

My husband said he heard

a weird noise while standing in the bathroom

but after he looked around he

couldn’t figure out what the noise was.

Even Teddy was curious

and looked to see what the noise was.

So, looks like we will be shopping for a new toity!

In the meantime here are

a couple of pics of one side of the laundry room.

 

laundry room 2 005

The  cabinet with doors was leftover

from the kitchen

renovation.

The resident handyman

added the shelves on the right

and topped it

all with crown molding.

---------

I shopped the house to

find things to fill the shelves….

this is what I came up with.

At one time I had

a collection

of antique scales on

the top of my kitchen cabinets…….

-----------

Please keep the people of

Harveyville Kansas in your prayers.

The nearby town

was hit by a tornado last night…..

several people were injured,two critically.

So incredibly sad…….

What I’m painting….this week!

 

After moving the new

table in to the dining room I

decided to lighten

things up

 and paint one of the grey

shutters…..white!

white shutter 001

 

grey shutters

Here they are before……

white  shutter 003

And now after……

white  shutter 008

---------

I decided to only hang one

shutter back up……I also only painted one shutter.

 If I tire of the white I can always

hang the other grey shutter back up.

booksA

 

 This is how the vasselier

looked before

I decided to flip the books

around so that

the pages show instead of

the spine of the book.

books C

Here is the after…. thought

I would switch things

up and try something different.

books B

My assistant…..he simply

insisted that

he be

in the picture and

would not move no matter

how many times

I asked him to!

books 018

So there you have it….

leave it that way but

up every

once in a while!

Beautiful cross bottles……

 

 

bottle

Today I would like to introduce you to Cross Bottle Guy, Artie Vanderpool an Interior Stylist and artist living in Western New York. Cross Bottle Guy’s handmade art,marries the rough to the refined with an artistic approach of the most creative regard. Shapely glass vessels-some vintage,some antique,some just gosh’ darn gorgeous-are festooned with crystal. These crystal creations are made using the antique copper foil stained glass method, and each piece of work requires hours of hand work and many steps to result in the final, beautiful work of art. Recycled, reused, remarkable!

Some of his absolutely wonderful creations:

Before they fade away……

 

rose1

My sweetheart gave me these

gorgeous

roses for

 Valentine’s Day.

So, before they fade away

I thought I

would share a few photos.

2012 roses 025

 

Originally they came

in a bouquet

with Baby’s Breath

and Eucalyptus

but when

I recut them for

the smaller

vase a few days later,

I used just the

roses for a different look……

I don’t know about you but this time

of the year with the

long dreary

days I am definitely

burning a lot of candles!

 Sometimes I use elegant holders……

but then at times

 I just prefer something simpler too……
