Grey Pots & Burlap

Hello everyone!

Today, is the first real sunny day that we've had all month!  By that, I mean sunny skies with a few white puffy clouds (not rain clouds) and hot sunshine (not steamy and damp feeling).  I am so happy!  How long will it last?  I don't know.  But, I'll take it for today!

I made a few changes around the house and wanted to share what I did.  

The first change was to move my grey painted bench from the family room to the upstairs hallway.


I also placed my cabinet doors on the wall above it.  Remember they used to hang above my mantel?  I like this simple style for the hallway.  The bench is very narrow so it doesn't impede traffic.  

What went downstairs in place of the bench was this burlap ottoman.


I've had it for about a year now, but had it in storage when I changed the room around.  Now, it's back!  

Recently, I received something I ordered from Woody Crest Living.  It just spoke to me when I saw it for sale.  It's this little herb crate with small grey pots.


I have it on a stool in the kitchen for now.  I'm enjoying using the little grey pots under my cloches at the moment too.

Here is one on my kitchen counter.


And here is one on my coffee table.


They are fun to stack and use for texture.  

So, these are just a few things that I've done lately.  

Hope you're having a great week so far!

Thanks for stopping by.

The wee grey pots are too cute. It's humid and hot here but I am grateful for the sun. I nearly fainted cutting grass this morning due to the humidity.

I love the way you use a lot of texture in your decor. It's great the way you move things around a lot. It keeps things interesting.
