On the mend...

                        Hi everyone!!! Sorry I know its been awhile since I have posted...but I have a good excuse...
                           I fell and broke my wrist..tripped on a pothole (not my finest moment).
                           Still in a rather awful cast..and of course it had to be my right wrist I broke!!
                          Did want to wish you all a Happy Easter..and let you know I will be back soon..until next time..xoxo

One Funky Little French Chair....

                             Well hello...its been awhile! Hope this finds everyone well and happy..Just a quick post to show you my funky little chair....I just love it!
                            Covered in burlap..smattered with numbers...and just the perfect size for where I wanted it...as soon as you come in the door...I love that it adds just a touch of whimsy to the apartment too! Best part is I bought it from my girl friends booth at a local antique market...so I got it for a great price! Be back soon...till next time..all the best, Chrissy

Unapologetically Dark....

                             It wasn't until I finished "tweeking" the dining room....
                              that I was once again reminded  that all the furniture in here is dark... 
                             from my old bench & shelf ....
                               to the harvest table..
                            and filing cabinet...even the chalk board is dark ..   
                            but it's ok....the room itself is light and bright...and full of sunshine(do you remember what that is...) its my unapologetically dark room...and for now it works for me! Till next time, all the best...Chrissy x0x0

French Torchons & Rusted Taps...

                             What better place to hang French tea towels...
                                 than off a set of rusted old garden taps..
                            I love how the crisp white looks with the French torchons I found a while back...
                          its funny..this little spot in my kitchen has become one of my favorite places to decorate..have had mirrors here..my vintage chalkboard ....we won't get into how many holes I have put in the wall now will we?!?!?
                               Have a lovely day my friends..thanks for coming by! x0x0

January Light....

                    Its a cold..bitter day here...like so many others we have had in this never ending winter..something however is different today...
                            its the light..the sunlight pouring in my window...where on earth has it been!
                           Everything takes on a new look when drenched in sunlight...everything looks special..and fresh!
                          Even my tulips have started to pop their heads hoping to soak up some of the sun.... lovely isn't it...when January decides to lighten its mood..if only for a little while! xoxo

Vintage Cupboard Love...

                     I am sure to most they appear to be...well JUNK furniture...
                               they are not new..or fancy..the paint is chipping of them both...
                               they are full of flaws indeed..but to me that is what makes them.. 
                                                                oh so perfect!!!
                     Wonderful pieces of JUNK furniture to display some pretty things..and give them new life! A belated Happy New Year to everyone...thank you so much for coming by and for your friendships over the years...Cheers to all of you!  xoxo
