I never liked looking in the room and seeing all the windows, had to have valances on them to hide the blinds...and it was very BUSY looking
after Hubby finished 2 walls.....and had gone to bed
I sat in the room, and in the dim lighting, it started to come to me..
I have to "feel" it....and it felt right........I knew what I wanted to do!
He woke up the next morning......and I told him......
he couldnt envision it........well...its done and we are both Pleased as Punch!
He took the heavy wooden blinds down, (they came with the house)
and on the big 8 foot slider at back of room, he made a simple pine cornice board to hide the shades...I rarely pull them down, but once in a while I do and so I didnt want to remove them
I love it now...very relaxing colorMy work has been keeping me very busy, and but I took one day and did a little decorating...Simply Seasoned...
I will post a few pics, from around the house.....
This is my view at night when I finally get to relax a little
This is one of my favorite trees....I have had the white Woolen Mittens many years...I like trees done in themes, rather than mixed up
it says "Simply Seasoned" to me
They are made in USA, right up in Maine
Hubby surprised me with this....The Perfect TWIG tree
he is always frugal........to say the least...believes in getting his moneys worth on everything!
He saved our FRESH TREE, from a couple years ago....had it standing down in back, I never noticed it..and knowing how I love Primitives, he brought it to me.........and we stuck it in a big ole red metal pail
I have adorned it with mini white lights...and simple blackended beeswax ornies....weighted candle holders..and a few of my painted canvas cabins
Found this table , in an old barn this summer...decided to bring it in and replace the bench......( needed bench for tree by fireplace)
I have to say...I love it here...it is a perfect height for a sofa table
I can change out the accents...each season but the table will stay!
heres a close up...showing the floating star candle....smells yummy and looks so pretty burning with its red center
Moving out doors........on the Front door.....Hubby decorated an old snowshoe..and I added a pair of striped socks, instead of a Bow......
simple......but a touch of whimsy..hubby tucked a stone dove in for luck!
Our Front Porch.....just sprinkled a few touches here and there
Hubby is so creative....we plan to put a Post lamp in, Spring 2013
but for now he knew I wanted to have a post to decorate
sooo he thought of this idea...he got a BIG Lantern for $15 on clearance
and put it on a pole he got free at fence place
we added some Battery Timer Candles..and there you have it
Make Do Post Lamp!
lack of storage space here, you never know where hubby will stash something....was pleasantly surprised to find him in the guest BATH!
now he keeps watch over the yard
a festive winter feel
Hubby had the job of decorating the shed...as I was way too busy
he took the Holiday Issue of A Primitive Place out there with him...to use as a Guide.......as Our Shed was featured in there all decked from Christmas last yr.........
he added his own touch and did a GREAT JOB.......Thanks David!
THATS all for now..........Back to work for me...
Hope you are all enjoying a wonderful weekend!
ON A Final Note.......
heres a song I wrote a couple years ago..well I wrote the Primitive Version!
Sing to the Tune of "My Favorite Things"
