Welcome back!! I am so happy you came for another visit...
Today I am sharing a fun cottage decorating idea...
A birdcage vignette with a candle.
And of course... another peek at the kitchen!
While hubby was off work we went to Nashville Indiana for a day of shopping. I love to visit there and get lots of cute ideas. I guess I was looking for things to incorporate in the new brighter color scheme.
It seemed every store we entered had a birdcage with a lit candle in it.
So last week when I found this large tray... I knew I wanted to use it as well.
I dug up some pink roses from the basement stash of goodies...
and this is my sweet little vignette.
I love having a candle on the island.
I had one of my houseplants there for awhile.
But I was afraid we would dump it moving it around.
So if needed I can just move the tray to another area.
Thanks so much for all the nice comments.
Some of my favorites have been about my oak cabinets.
Yes, we know oak is "out" right now.
But I did not want anything dark in our new home.
Our are Amish built and so well made.
Of course, I love the look of painted cabinetry.
But I would be scared to death of it chipping or peeling.
Plus... my hubby would kill me.
So my light and bright will be in my accessories and paint colors.
We also talked about the table last time.
Yes, I could paint it, but it is just too big for the space.
I am looking for a small round table not over 40".
I have been checking craigslist... and my junk stores.
I will find it... and I love the HUNT!
Until then I lighten it up with a lace tablecloth.
We do not eat at the table, so it is not a problem keeping it clean.
I am so thankful for all your comments and pins of the new look.
Hopefully this might give you an idea to try in your home too!
I am already thinking of how to decorate for fall with pastels.
If you would like... follow me on Pinterest and I will share some of my ideas.
Thanks for stopping by today... hope you will come back soon!
