How does something as simple as cotton string create a whole new room?
My drop cloth curtains in the dining room needed new tiebacks,
so I grabbed my butchers string from the bucket that it resides
and crocheted some new tiebacks for the dining room!
It was a nice sunshiny day and that coupled with the new tiebacks led to a fresh, clean room!
(o.k. that coupled with some window cleaner, a vacuum,
and a bucket of vinegar water and some elbow grease!)
The tiebacks were just the excuse I needed to rearrange and freshen things in here.
Last years boxwood wreath bit the dust while decorating for Christmas
and this old mirror frame with last springs wreath took its place.
The metal basket filled with blue jars was a special Christmas gift...
as was this little frame, I put one of the few pictures that I have of my mammy in it.
( I love it, even if it's small and a bit blurry... she is feeding a puppy)
I balanced all of the light colors in the room with this black dresser on the short wall
before the living room.
I wasn't "balancing" anything on purpose!
This dresser was put here when the Christmas tree came in the room
and I liked it so much that this is where it stayed!
(that's the truth, the whole truth!)
During the holidays, when everyone was showing all of the Anthro inspired snow globes,
I made one of my own.
A vintage wedding cake topper on a small silver coaster
on top of a candle holder.
It will probably stay out way past Valentines Day.
As for this girl, she made it safely to Atlanta and the happiness in her voice
is music to my ears!
Thank you everyone for your kind thoughts and prayers. xoxoxox
These are pics that I shot through the window in the comfort of my semi-warm (old house)
kitchen of her and Duane tying down all of her must-have treasures.
She doesn't miss the cold at all!
so that's the story of how a bit of cotton string can create a whole new room!
(Who would have thought that something as basic as curtain tiebacks
would force me to redecorate the whole room?)
ohhh you, of course!
Thanks for stopping by!
