We purchased an amazing room size rug from Kaufman by Design (on Cantrell, here in Little Rock, Arkansas.)
The whole room feels larger, brighter, more interesting, and infinitely more comfortable! I am so pleased! If you’re local, I highly recommend that you check out the store Kaufman By Design!
I also picked up a few of these glass/brass boxes and filled them with reindeer moss and some of my crystals and gems! It’s nice to have them on display in a way that I can fully see them, yet they’re less accessible to our cat, 3 kids, and guests. You understand, I’m sure!
In other news, I recently saw this amazing agate perfume bottle on Pinterest. New goal: acquire stone perfume bottles, preferably of a wearable pendant size! Source of image
So, tell me: What’s new in your world? I’m going to hop around blogland and explore this evening! I bet you’re all creating some amazing things!
If you might want to try one of my projects, enjoy my post, or like a photo, please consider Pinning it to Pinterest! There is a gray PINTEREST button at the bottom of each post! Thank you so much, friends!
Love Ya Lots and Lots,
We’re looking forward to the parade downtown this afternoon followed by the lighting of the Capitol building this evening!
I heart this time of year!
Parties and Celebrations!
Santa and Reindeer!
Crafting, Baking, and Decorating!
My poor, lucky husband is so outnumbered cohabitating with me and our three daughters. He’s such a good sport about it, especially considering that I have the audacity to leave a path of personal accessories in my wake throughout the house intermittently throughout the day.
I wear jewelry everyday. Sometimes, when I remove it, I’m not near my jewelry chests in our master bedroom, so I’ve taken to adorning miscellaneous places to suit my fancy of the moment as I remove it, lately. For example, if one were to feel heated after wearing a heavy stone necklace outdoors to water the garden, it makes sense to remove it when returning indoors. If said stone necklace looks fab adorning a cross atop the fireplace mantle in the dining room, then it is only logical it should reside there. Right? Right!!
And, Earrings dangling from a bowl above a new book that just arrived in mail because I took the earrings off while using the phone look great on the bowl . . .
. . . Furthermore, a black shell floral necklace and an oversized gold floral bracelet hanging from leaf plates on the dining room sideboard because I took them off while clearing the table after dinner should stay on display.
The plan: I have multiple jewelry jewelry chests with jewelry organized by color and theme for each drawer that is only seen by me, unless worn. While it stays protected, it sure is a shame that the beauty of the pieces is largely unseen, thus unappreciated, by my daughters and me while tucked away. So, for at least the next few weeks, I’m wearing a new piece or two from the chests each day and adorning a new spot in the house!
I have a big chandelier in the foyer hanging snugly to our 10′ ceilings that sure looks like it for awhile it may need vintage colored pearls and rhinestone brooches on ribbons and . . . 🙂 What do YOU think? Should I just GO for it? I think I shall!!
Oh! Oh! Oh! Speaking of jewelry adorning things, I almost forgot to show you a little jewel I purchased for a few dollars at an estate/moving sale recently: it’s a heavily lacquered painting on wood that is inlaid with mother-of-pearl/abalone shell! It features three young ladies in an orchard, so I immediately connected it to represent our three daughters in our backyard with their big
walnut, little apple, and 3 peach trees! Love it, love it, love it, I do!
🙂 Looking forward to hearing from YOU!
