How’s this for an intro picture? First, I wanted to show you the new outdoor light fixture that I put up last week. Remember the one I found at the yardsale a few weeks ago? Well, I got it hung up & WOW, does it look great. See the first pic? Have you ever in your life seen a butt-uglier light fixture for the front porch? Yeah, me neither!
I climbed up the ladder(well, actually the neighbor’s ladder) & got this baby hung last week & I couldn’t be happier with it. I think I mentioned that my hubby is not handy…well, he’s not, so I have to try these things myself. I could probably talk him into helping more, but then I’d have to wait & wait & I’m just not too patient, so I just do it myself. I’ve changed out about 10 light fixtures in the whole house & don’t have too many left to do.
This is another metal container that I decoupaged years ago. It has some cute feet too that you can’t see here. I used napkins and wallpaper (bunnies, of course!).
Some blue & white pieces that I’ve had for a long time, grouped together they make a nice collection. One thing I love to pick up is small columns like the one here. I have used them so many places & they really come in handy for displaying things. You can’t have enough of these types of things.
More pottery pieces that I have had for years. There was plenty of room for them up here & I love how they look. The dried hydrangeas came from my garden last year.
A little oil painting of bunnies I picked up years ago too, with another blue/white bunny. Blue & white is not the predominant color in here, but I like just a little bit of it since some of the artwork in the kitchen has a touch of blue.
And, the new tole tray that I just found on the left, joins the one on the right that I found years ago at another yardsale. I don’t find these often, but when I do, I snatch them up!
Iron rooster that a dear friend gave me for a wedding present sits up on one corner with a blue/white plate behind him.
