Sometime I read my comments and just cry. How did I ever get SO lucky as to meet all of you.
Really. You are just so sweet and kind to me. I sometimes just shake my head in wonder.
I picked these Waverly place mats up at an Estate sale a few weeks ago. We stopped in on the "half price day" as I wouldn't have been able to negotiate the crowd with my knee and hip problem which is a thing of the past. At least so far. Nearly three months of pain..and it's now a thing of the past...for now.
The place mats had the perfect apple green trim colors that went perfectly with the patio set.
The umbrella used to have a brown wood pole. I painted it with the apple green to go with the pretty apple green umbrella cover.
I get such a kick out of finding things that look like they belong. Especially when it costs next to nothing.
YORK wallpaper by Waverly. Or is it the other way around. Source is American Blinds.
This is the wall paper that is going up in the kitchen. It arrived about a week ago...however...
I was one roll short on the paper for the accent wall in the living room..
This will go on the wall behind the couch. They only sent me one roll so I had to order another.
I mean..why would I order just one roll??? but they insisted I did.. At this point I sort of trust them more than myself...but still... ???
So..I'm waiting for my extra rolls. My paper hanger is busy with another job that will be finished on the first of June..so..it will work out perfectly. :)
My kitchen is now "kitchen aid red." I cannot wait to see how the new paper looks.
The living room wall is right around the corner from the kitchen. I know, I know....it's going to be GORGEOUS! (almost)
I know. It's much for some of you..but I'm loving the coziness of my paper.
About the bedroom. I have not posted pictures of it yet as I was waiting for my Laura Ashley Chalk pink lamp shades to arrive, which they have..and so tomorrow I will snap a couple of pictures of the finished room. No..still no new bedspread. Not a sophisticated room ..but it's me. Um...us!!!
Did ...I ...say..."me"... but of course I meant "us" You DO believe me, don't you?
*Nothing like wall paper and chocolate to take your mind off the world's problems, at least until you watch the news again!
