Home Decor Musings
Here I am back again for another week of posting. I really enjoy my blog friends and I thank you for your visit and your comments. Today, I'm not going to bore you with anymore watercolor pictures. I thought I would give you some insight into my decorating.....(my daughter would laugh at me as she thinks my decorating is nonexistent!)
Here's a picture of the new candelabras that I bought yesterday at Home Goods. I had wanted something to go with my chandelier and yet have some height. Home Goods had a new display of these candle holders and I snagged these two. I think they look good?
These are the bird of paradise curtains that I ordered from World Market. They are upstairs in the TV room. Behind them are four little square windows. Since we now (I) watch TV up there, it helps keep the sun off the TV screen. I love patterns - one of the reviews for these curtains was from a lady who had eclectic style....just like me!
I had this Asian inspired planter that I made into a table. I bought a little lamp at my local store. I think it adds a little bit of ambiance to the room....
As to the kitchen, my daughter brought me this fragrant sprag of rosemary. I used it in a dish the other day. I cut up parsnips and sweet potatoes and boiled them in a little water, fresh rosemary and a pinch of sugar. I then drained them and mashed them adding a little butter and salt and pepper. They were delicious.
And as to my outdoor decor, my gardenia plant has a ton of blossoms. I hope that they don't drop off and that I can enjoy the fragrant flowers.
I'll leave you with a picture of my daughter, Heidi (on the right). She was so excited today as she got to meet her favorite author, Sophie Kinsella at our local library. She had so much fun.
Until next time, I wish you my best and please if you have time, drop by Handmade Harbour and see some great craft ideas!
