Around the house...

Please excuse the appearance of my blog over the next few days...weeks...I am trying to add some fun things and maybe change the banners,etc.

Anyway, now that the Christmas decorations are gone the house seems a little blah.....So, I have been trying to freshen things up. I have left a few winter/snow items out, maybe for a few more weeks. Then I will add some vintage Valentine decorations.

This picture is a little blurry. Some white candles in an old galvanized hog feeder on my 'coffee table." These candles are actually from our wedding - over 11 years ago...STILL using them!

In the old cupboard in the living room

On top of the cupboard. Love this picture of my boys. Thanks Michelle McCord - she takes beautiful photographs!

Rusty, crusty ceiling tin in the entry way

Let it Snow!!!

Now onto the basement, where all the fun stuff is...
old Book of Psalms...WHAT will I do with this????
This, too... an old science book

old shutters, spindles, wire baskets...
can't wait to do some modge podge action on this lampshade...

Some vintage fabrics...

Looking like maybe another snow day tomorrow...so maybe some time to be creative!
