Beauty is all around and it isn’t always easy changing and beginning something new. I thank God everyday for giving us new chances. With that I have a small home tour for you today…
The garden is coming along and I’ll share more later this week or early next. Mr. Ethereal and I have been working on several projects outside such as cleaning out gutters and installing gutter guards to prevent leaves and acorns from filling them up, fixing the back fence and gate, as well as making the back flowerbed.
Thankfully we have had plenty of rain each week or two so our grass is green, the plants are well watered and the new Apello solar sound vole repellents seem to be driving the voles away.
Later today I will be driving down to visit our daughter for a few days. We plan to visit a couple of gardens down in Austin, Texas and I am looking forward to sharing them with you!
spring blooms with summer photos coming.
So without further ado let’s head back indoors, shall we?
In the living room the library tea table is getting an update with the addition of this favorite plate stand. Everything still has a soft patriotic theme with the pinks, whites and blues.
Hubby helped me hang up the curtain rod we brought from California along with my favorite lace curtains in our bedroom.
I’ll share those the next time as right now while working in the craft/sewing room, a mattress is back in our bedroom… Which is why I can’t reshoot the bedroom and share the whole thing.
Always the way, isn’t it? Lol.
Not too perfect ~ casually wrinkled and perfectly pink! I am still deciding what I want to hang above the bed which is why nothing is there yet. I’d love to find a French corona to hang bed curtains from but that’s a hit and a miss and may require a trip somewhere far away to find.
This is how we had our last bedroom after buying the California king mattress and our daughter taking the cherry bedframe and headboard. She still loves it, btw!
Good news! Our trailer is up for sale and hopefully it will sell soon. Hubby and I do talk about taking a nice trip overseas to Italy and France and it would be sooo nice for our 35th wedding anniversary coming up in two years… But we will need to save for it, of course.
This vintage rabbit lamp I found at an antique store years ago in Redlands, California and it is a favorite. Surprisingly we don’t need that many lamps and many will be sold at our first Texas garage sale.
Right now though I am looking for a lamp shade to match this one for the lamp on hubby’s bedside table ~ no luck so far.
Any ideas on where to look? Maybe I just need to find a shade with the same coloring and similar shape.
Taken about a month after our household goods were delivered.
The attic space is getting cleaned and shelves are going up so this large box and the wicker trunk will be heading up shortly. There isn’t really a spot for this wicker trunk downstairs right now and it was one of my first purchases from my very first job.
I found it at Cost-Plus World Market when it was a new store in the late 1970’s. I am not willing to part with it just yet… It was the hope chest I kept at the end of my double bed in high school.
Our fair maiden graces enjoys the afternoon sunshine.
