Playing with New Things

Hello everyone!

Lately, I've had my doorbell ring a few times with new packages.  So, I've been playing around to find a new home for them. 

I know you've already seen my original dough bowl that was once in my powder room.  That moved to the kitchen.  However, I spotted a dough bowl reproduction on Wuslu, before Christmas, and decided it offered a different look from my original one that I liked better.  The reproduction had deeper sides on it.  I decided to order it and see how I liked it. 


Turns out, I love it!  It looks amazingly authentic too. I filled it with old book bundles.

Also, from Wuslu, I fell in love with these little paddle chalkboards. They were sold as a set of three.  They are just like the one in my kitchen.


So, I hung one above my larger one.  The other two I distributed around the house.  I love how versatile they are.

In the foyer, I used one as a tray for my antlers.


And in the kids bathroom, a little reminder couldn't hurt!


 
Finally, I found a cute online shop advertised on some one's blog, called French Charmed. 


I found this zinc colored crown that I just loved.  It can be used as a planter or even for a candle (as I did).


Look who is sleeping on the sofa on this gloomy rainy day!  He has been like that all day.  Poor thing.  It's just too wet to play outside.  That means he will be begging us  to play with him tonight.  We can always tell when he didn't get to run around outside.  He will bring us his toys all night.  Anyone that has one of these breeds, knows EXACTLY what I'm talking about!  Ha!

Still working on the powder room.  I did get some of the items that I needed to finish it up, but not all of them. 

Hope you are having better weather where you are.  It is dreary here.  This is the part of winter that I don't like.

Thanks for stopping by!

Oh My gosh, you just have the best taste and sense of style~everything looks amazing. I am loving the paddle boards, and the crown candle looks fab. I have a big old crown just sitting in my bathroom...you might see it make an appearance somewhere as a candle holder!lol

You've found some cool things, and displayed them beautifully. The bowl looks great.

Hi Kelly! Oh, I love that bowl. I've been looking for a dough bowl too! Your little paddle chalk boards are so cute! They do remind me of the paddles teachers used to could use when I was in elementary school! ;)
I've never heard of Wuslu and I'll have to go and check it out. Oh, we used to have a little Boston and they are the sweetest fiestiest little things ever! :)
Thanks for popping in and be a sweetie,
Shelia ;)

Love all your finds! I had wanted to buy both the dough bowl and chalk boards from WUSLU but it was too late when I saw them. Yours look great!
