We're starting to get settled in here, bit by bit, and piece by piece.
As I donate things that no longer work in this home, I am finding other things that do.
Oddly enough, none of the things in these pictures were in our last house,
though many other rooms have furnishings that are being used in this home.
I found these pillows at Marshall's. The round ones remind me of some green velvet ones
that used to be on my Gram's couch. My sister and I may or may not have rolled them back and forth to each other on the floor when she wasn't paying attention.
I spied these lamps at a Thrift store for $5 a piece last month.
I have been waiting for a pair like this for 6 months, and had to go to North Carolina
on a weekend getaway with my hubby to find them!
The painting techniques specialist in our home, Miss S,
transformed them from their '80s oak ugliness to an aged wood vintage finish.
The balls in the three-tired holder are from Pier 1.
The clock was a Christmas present from my hubby.
The iron cross, a $1 yard sale find.
Our view out the window behind the sofa.
Here's how it looks from the outside.
(Some changes to the front of the house are coming including the removal of the vinyl siding and new landscaping.)
In our "foyer" now hangs some hooks I also found at Pier 1.
There's no room for even a small armoire to hang coats or purses of those visiting,
so this was the solution for now.
So, this was just a short little post to show you what I've been up to:
flying here and there finding bits and pieces that say "home".
What have you been finding lately as you nest, that says "home" to you?
