“Home is the most popular, and will be the most enduring of all earthly establishments.” Channing Pollock
Since I got a couple of things done last weekend, I thought I'd go ahead and post - "journal"... here about them, so that my blogpost will be close to the completions, just for the record, when I look back one day. :-)
Joining up on a party post with Kathleen over at her White Wednesday regulars...
Love to see all the bloggers over there. Here's the link, if anybody wants to go on over and visit her at Faded Charm:
Here's one thing that got tackled... Remember this Craig's List treasure in a post back around the first of March???
Well, I finally got it moved in! It is just leaning...not attached. May stay that way for a while. There's no fireplace so I might would take it with me if we ever move. It came out of an old house that was demolished in a historical section of Charlotte. For now, here she rests... A place to hang stockings this Christmas away from the REAL fires and sparks! woot!
I added the decorative embellishment in the center. A brass find at the thrift shop last Fall, Splatter painted it white and hung it. Still thinking about what to do in the opening. That will take a while and a bit of pondering. For now a table will sit there.
This chandy was brass. I took it down and with Kurt helping to hold it, finally got it spray painted Heirloom White. (been meaning to do this for quite a while.) I added some crystals and beads and glitter berries at the top. It now has more of a cottagey feel to it which I like. (not so formal)
This lovely little white roses and hydrangea resin wreath was at the thrift store and I loved it as soon as I laid eyes on it. And for .99 I decided it was a good deal.
And this little baby doll is my Rob Roy posing for White Wednesday. He is really Justin's "Woobie". Justin gave Woobie a Marine name after he went to LeJeune... "Lone-Wolf" - This pup misses his Marine.... We tell him constantly that Justin will be back soon to visit on weekends...!!
Thanks for popping in today to visit. Bloggy friends are wonderful and encouraging.
Have a great Wednesday! Hugs to all.
**Going with my mom and dad to talk to her Cancer doctor and Hospice nurse about her MRI she had done yesterday. Thanks for praying for all of us. Blessings to you all!
