Since pretty boy and blue eyes left, I’ve been pulling my “stuff” out of the attic where it was stored while they were living here. (Just wasn’t room for “decor” AND playpens, highchairs, riding toys and such.
Pulling it all out again has been kinda of like when you move and unpack. You know the feeling? Lamps, books, and old collectibles look new and fresh again. You have a whole new prospective on arranging them!
I get such pleasure out of “decorating”. I never leave anything the same for too long. Tabletops at my house are like the weather in Tennessee. If you don’t like it today then stick around, it’ll change soon.
Love this apothecary jar. She is so versatile.
You can fill her with all kinds of things.
After being filled with natural items like moss, pinecones, seed pods, and even a glittered starfish or two, she's found a home on my sofa table.
I have a small collection of mallards. Love to decorate with them, especially in the fall. Their colors go so well with autumn decor. Some of mine are carved from wood, but this one’s special. She’s an old decoy.
On the other side of the room, I pulled an old table back out of the attic. Oh, I love the patina of this old table. You never have to worry about damaging the surface. The harder you are on it, the more handsome it gets. You gotta love that!
I save all my wine corks cause you never know when you’ll need them. They provide an inexpensive way to add some color and texture to the room.
The pillow was made from an old coffee sack. I made three pillows out of the same sack and if you're interested in doing something like this, check my previous post out HERE.
Let me show you one more thing before I go pulling more “stuff” out of the attic.
On my coffee table, a little birdie perches on her nest full of eggs with her log cabin birdhouse close by.
By the way, speaking of coffee tables, I have a question for you.
See the coffee table? Years ago, my dad cut the legs off an old pedestal dining table and created this coffee table for our home.
I’ve always loved the look of the rich oak, but, now, I’m thinking I want to paint it an off-white shabby chic. I think it would really POP on my rug. What do you think? Really, I would love to know!
