Little by little things are going on the walls. This group looks much better in person. I think since the bottom picture blends into the wall in the picture. I have no rhyme or reason to how I decorate. Somehow I ended up with mostly canvases on the walls, so far. Yes, there is a sheet on the sofa because of the dogs. Those are new doll books I got at the last auction. There is a lot going on in our one big living space. The kitchen, the dining room and living room are all one room. And there are no halls, just lots of doors. Then I have the unusual space above one wall clear at the top. And I also have space above the kitchen cupboards.
The high space I decided to just use my baskets . I know that is old school but I think they work here. I like the sign and the aqua lantern for a little of color . I want that area to blend in and not stick out.
The space above the cabinets goes from high to low. This is what is up there now after Christmas. The bike that came with the doll, a handmade wooden bowl, some wooden spools, stars that hold candles and a couple of cute girls. Again, there is a lot going on in one room so trying to keep things simple. It makes it hard when your house was staged so long and the walls were so bare. All this time I couldn't wait to put my things back up and now I keep holding back. So far almost everything you see is new or it wasn't on the walls before. Most of the canvases I got with special deals or gifts.
The other side of the cabinets is not very high. and is a dark area so I used wooden spools , a wooden bowl and an angel.
My Littlest Bears finally are out of the boxes in their new home.
I am so excited to finally put this shelf on the wall. I have had it for a couple of years and it never got put up. Hubby saw it and was worried it wasn't up well. I bumped into it today and it stayed in place. This will change as I find my other things but I am loving it so far.I ordered this shelf from Décor Deals.......where they have a deal each day. I saw it and knew I had to have it. It is only about 2 feet long but I love the distressed paint. For now my little pitcher collection is there. Also a little frame I bought at Country Living Fair at the Earth Angels tent. It was on sale and the only thing I could afford there.
I am sure some of you are preparing for the big storm. It is supposed to last 36 hours. We are on the cusp of getting the snow. We probably will only see 2 - 4 inches if the map stays were it is now.
My feet are getting better. One area is tender but not bad. I haven't been out of the house very much so I think not wearing shoes has helped.
Well, I guess that's it for now. Stay safe and warm my friends.
