I can't believe it's already Tuesday evening! I love 4-day work weeks and wish we could have them every week. Today I am sharing a few photos of some other updates around the house. First up is a sweet and simple new table vignette. I used one of the thrifted tablecloths I bought the other day. It is quite worn, with a couple spots on it, but I still really like it. The soft, muted colors are so pretty. I chose to use a silver plated tray this time, along with one of my lemon cypress trees, my February calendar clipped to a book (I still love this look), and a small white, metal church. Simple and sweet.
The buffet got a new look as well since Valentine's Day is over. Milk glass, vintage books, and a few other things.
I love these little plates I found at Michael's over the weekend for $3 each. I got my 15% teacher discount so that made them $2.55 each. They are so cute!
My sister always buys me a bag of Robin Eggs when they start putting out the Easter candy...she knows they're my favorite Easter treat!
I mentioned yesterday that I cleaned up the guest room over my long weekend too. Here are just a few photos. This room is so tiny and it's difficult to get decent shots. I'm standing just outside the doorway here. Some of you may remember this mirror project from last year.
This is from just inside the doorway. The aqua cart in the corner got moved back to my craft room after this was taken. I didn't make any major changes in here, just cleared out the clutter and tweaked the vignettes. I still love the board and batten ceiling the hubby and I created in this room. It gives a lot of bang for the buck!
The headboard was of course thrifted and repainted last year. I finally put the new thrifted spread on the bed. I love it! A vintage ladder leans in the corner to the right. It will eventually find a new home on the porch when it's built.
This is what hangs on the ladder wall.
To the left of the bed is a vintage dresser that belonged to my Granny Valentine. It got a makeover last year as well. I didn't change much here as I still love the way it looks...:)
The window wall is so pretty with the light flooding in and streaming through the colored glass bottles and things in the window.
So pretty...:) I love the cobalt blue bottle with the fat bottom.
The last wall is the closet wall. This closet holds extra blankets and jackets, some luggage and a few other items. I still love the black and white trees and birds curtain from Ikea. I have another panel to use for another project someday!
This sweet little guy sits in his wagon beside the little blue chair. He is old! My Aunt Loretta gave hm to me. She bought him at a yard sale. A lady was going through a divorce and the bear had belonged to her soon to be ex husband. Kind of sad that she didn't just give him back to him...:( Isn't he sweet..:) The chair came from a church I used to attend. They were getting rid of a bunch of them and I wish I had grabbed more, but sadly I only bought this one home. It's in original condition and I will not alter it at all. It's chippy blue and perfect...:) You can see some of the chippiness to the left of the bear.
And that concludes the guest room tour. Quick I know, but like I said, it's a tiny room. As always, thanks for visiting! I hope you have a lovely Wednesday.
Until next time...
