A Little of This and That

Hello everyone!

I thought I'd share with you a few things around here that are both old and new.

Let's start with the old.......

I changed my dining room centerpiece to something more simple using things I already had. I went down into my basement and grabbed this wire urn, that I bought years ago, and some Spanish moss.  I filled the urn with the moss and then set a small fern plant inside it.  Voila!  Instant satisfaction and best of all, free!




Now I'll share with you the new...........

I ordered a set of these key/lock plates from Decor Steals (formerly Wuslu).  I thought they were very unique and would be cute sprinkled around the house.

I used one on top of a stack of magazines on the coffee table.


Then I used another one on the wall above a mirror in the sitting room.




And finally the last one over a picture in my upstairs hallway.



Can you believe that this is my very last rooster in the house?  He should feel very special since he lasted the longest!  Ha!

And finally my last new treasure is this white ceramic tureen I found at a consignment store.  I placed it in my black dish display cabinet in the kitchen.


                                                     I love white tureens! 

So, there you have it.  Just a little of this and that.  Hope your week is going well so far. 

Thanks for stopping by!

Love your old and new, Kelly. Great magazine weight, idea. I have a passion for old rusty pieces.

I love that corner with the chair, Kelly! It looks very inviting. Love the tureen. I've been passing on them at Goodwill in recent months because my whites cabinet is basically filled. Although, since I see them so much, maybe I should just get them and use them on my cabinet tops. You are as bad a Decor Steals addict as I am. In fact, I just drafted a post about it after my most recent purchase from them. Between them and Antique Farmhouse my budget is starting to crack!

I love your Rooster pic...where did all the other roos go? I always know when I see the deals on Wuslu that I will most likely see them at your house ;) I just bought pillows from them...excited to get them :)

lisag said...

Kelly,

It's driving me nuts wondering when Wuslu offered those locks! When did you find them? I try to open every email from them and can't find them.
You have a beautiful home and I can't wait to view your blog each and every day!
