Around The House

Ever since we had our den repainted back in March (!) I’ve been trying to lighten things up with accessories…some new and some repurposed.    I’ve been pretty lucky finding things that are affordable lately so I thought I’d share a few of my favorite finds with ya’ll today.

Please keep in mind that I didn’t stage anything and it’s far from being finished.    I’ve still got to sell my old sofa and buy a new one from Ikea and I have a piece or two of furniture that will be repainted.

By and far this demijohn basket is my favorite recent purchase….found it this past weekend while out of town for $20.00!!    Yes, I know it’s missing the glass jug but ask me if I care!


The texture and size are so wonderful….I moved the big lantern from here (you can catch a glimpse of it in the background) and put it on this tray on my coffee table.



Isn’t is gorg?


I also recently ordered two gray and white striped pillows from here and found another pillow at Hobby Lobby that will be perfect on the slipcovered Ikea sofa (hope to make a trip to Atlanta for that soon)!



Just ignore the pillows behind the new ones….that sofa is out of here soon! Can’t you see my new pillows on a white slipcovered sofa? I can’t wait!!!

I also ordered this mirror from the same catalog…

mirror country door


It’s hanging in my foyer and its beautiful!   The description says “brown” but it looks just like this photo…more of a distressed gray.   Of course, it means I’ll have to paint the chest under it….another unplanned project!



Here’s the pillow I got at Hobby Lobby…I used a 40% off coupon



For now I put the striped pillows in the chippy white basket I bought on a recent flea market trip for $4.00!    My sweet granddaughter Taylor was with me that day (while her mama was getting her hair cut) and spotted this old basket….I loved the size and color



This platter isn’t new but I was playing around on Pic Monkey and just wanted to throw it into the mix



I lucked up and found this sweet little driftwood sailboat at World Market….I love that store!



I’ve been wanting one of these monogrammed plates and finally picked up the last “J” at Hobby Lobby the other day



Here are a trio of oversized white platters I am going to hang on my wall in the kitchen….I’ve had the one in the middle for a while but the other two are new from this past weekend (need to get plate hangers so they can get hung up)



And last but not least are a trio of old tarnished silver trays….the one in the center I sprayed black a while back.    Notice the large bottom tray has a missing handle?    It fell off the wall the other day and the handle broke off…so I just turned it where it’s not as noticeable until hubby can fix it

I know this post is all over the place but I wanted to share some of my goodies with you today

I’m about to head out to spend part of the day with my sweet mama….we’ll probably take her out to eat BBQ later.

Happy Memorial Day!

It's amazing how much our taste are similar. I could just come shop your house and put it right into my house. So when are you going out of town again? :-) Your grandaughter picked a great basket.

Let me know how you like the IKEA sofa.

Looking forward to seeing you again very soon I hope.
