Changing things up

Today was a good day until the shelf fell off the wall.

I moved my shelves to other walls.The small shelf got moved to the side of the double windows. I put my pink bunny and milk glass on it then I added a candle to the shelf and it fell. Way to much weight on it, The bunny busted into 2 pieces. I was upset about it The candle and Milk glass vase didn’t bust or chip. The shelf is back on the wall with the vase and a blue bird.

The cake stand was spray painted black because I didn’t like the brown.I put a bird cage on it with a form piece in it for now. I have to go through my Spring tote to get the florals out and make an arrangement for the bird cage.

The chair is finally painted and the seat cover is on it. I put it in a corner under my other shelf , I have a small table next to the chair.I put my Aloe plant on the small table. My area is coming along slowly, My hubby built me a cabinet for some more of my pottery. I still need to bring in some of books and my seeds .

I still need to take the paint out here and organize my room. So far it’s working out great. I still need to get a door handle so I can close my door completely. The cats are going to be upset once they realize that they can’t come in here.It’s still a work in progress with this room.

Thanks for stopping by.

Til next time.

My area

My area/office is done?

Finally got to get into my area today. We have a couple of things to do but they can wait to be finished.I think we need trim for the windows and carpet. My alternative for carpet is going to be canvass drop cloth. I already have the drop cloth.It’s just long enough but it is too wide so we will have to cut it down.

The start of putting things in this space. I’m still trying to figure out what I really want in this space. I want to put my china in here. This area is going to be used as an office/crafting area. I’m using everything I have to decorate this space. I’m sure things will be switched out as the Seasons change.

Making progress . I took everything out of the boxes and put them on the bookcase . I just wanted the boxes emptied. So, I have to figure out how to decorate it. I.m adding Spring/Easter decor into this space since that is the Season we are in. Even though it doesn’t feel like it. I have a few projects that I need to start that will be in this room. I have a chair or two that I want to paint and change the fabric on the seat cushion.

I bought a weighted chicken before I went on a NO SPEND for my room, the door doesn’t close all the way.So, Turkeyette , serves as a door stopper and a guard. She’s not much of a guard as the cats still get into my area. Yes, I named the chicken, Turkeyette McChicken. If, I had enough money I would bought the grey chicken also. Once, I’m done decorating, I’ll post pictures of what is done at that point.

Hope everyone is doing well and staying safe.

Thanks for stopping by.

Til next time.

Budget shopping??

I did something that I said I wouldn’t do and that was spend money on decor.

We were out today and stopped at a Variety store just to look around. The Building was built in 1905 and it was used for many things through out the years. It was a Doctors Office, a Store Front , Apartments and now it’s back to being a Store Front.

The Print a reproduction and after doing some research on it , the value is anywhere from $60 to $400.The Ceramic pieces are from Dover Ohio and have the Artist Signature on them. The piece with the florals are from 1987 and the bottom one is from 1978,same Artist. I haven’t done research on those pieces yet. The oil lamp is from Hong Kong.I don’t have an amber colored oil lamp. I have two other Oil lamps. I spent $24.00, yes ,ouch but for me it was worth it knowing that the Print is worth some money. I’m thinking that I might want to stay out of certain types of stores.

The print is hung up in our living room, the oil lamp is on a shelf in the pantry area. I haven’t decided where to put the other two pieces as of yet.I might bring them in the office. I would have to take a few things of my bookcase to make room. If not the office maybe I display them in the living room. Do I regret buying those pieces, not at the moment. I don’t think I will regret it.

Thanks for stopping by.
