I'm finally starting to feel the cloud lift around me. My meds got straightened out and I'm hoping to feel well enough to get me through this hectic week. School starts back this Thursday and I still have some things to do to get ready for that.
Our garden is slowing down, but our tomatoes have been popping out like crazy! This is the second batch full this week alone.
There's one lonely cucumber in the mix too. I've been clipping those like crazy too. Still waiting on some more to mature first though.
I promised last week that I would share some changes I've been working on in the family room.
I found some pretty vintage artwork at an antique store and propped it on my mantel.
The new one is on the right. Isn't it cute? I've always liked floral paintings.
I placed this peony arrangement in a burlap sack on the other side of the mantel.
And on the hearth, I placed a demijohn bottle in an old rusted wire lampshade that I found while out shopping too.
I thought about using it on a lamp, but it's too big for most of mine. So, I'll use it like this or even as a cloche in the future. Lots of fun uses in store for it, I forsee! I was happy to snag this since I've been on the look out for one.
Here is how my mantel looks now.
I'm liking the romantic look of it with a little color.
My old crate on the coffee table received a mix of old books, demijohn bottle and a sprig of greenery.
I like the natural look of it and the texture it has.
Do you see that mess on my sofa over there? That's real life around here right now. See? I didn't even straighten it up for you. Sorry about that. I'm running around like a mad woman with too much on my plate this week, so I had to set some boundaries. LOL!
And look whose all kicked back and taking it easy? At least he's out of my hair when he's sleeping. This little guy has been keeping me good company while I've been sick.
And lastly, my other two chairs received some french ticking pillows that I've had. Decided to mix up the ticking on the chairs with the florals on the sofa.
So, that's it for now. I've done some more tweaking in other areas as well, which I'll share at another time.
I'm hoping to get back to a regular schedule around here now that school is starting back.
Hope you are all doing well this week.
Thanks for stopping by!
