This weekend my mom and I enjoyed a lovely Sunday afternoon shopping our favorite antique stores! I had no problem at all finding a few treasures to spend my newly acquired birthday money on! I've had my eye on these gorgeous paper Paris Souvenir pendants. I shared this photo on my Facebook page earlier in the week. These will be made into buntings...one for myself and a couple more to share!
I fell in love with this framed sheet music cover page from 1919. Such a sweet image with beautiful colors...it has a new home in my little creative space.
Last but not least, this pretty little painting of yellow roses and a wonderfully weathered old door. I was drawn to the painting and knew I had to have it for our front room where we have a chaise lounge slip-covered in a soft yellow rose fabric. I knew the painting was much too small for the bare wall I wanted it for and I had been thinking that I wanted a door there. My mom spotted this one and convinced me that the color and patina was just right. Here is a look back at changes this cozy little corner has been through.
Last spring I shared the beginnings of the front room makeover. I brought home this cushy chaise lounge, purchased from a friend and I painted the pretty ornate frame that hangs above in Versailles Chalk Paint® Decorative Paint by Annie Sloan.
When I started putting together my creative space on the opposite side of the room, I stole the frame for another project, my inspiration board. Other priorities superseded decorating this little corner of the room, and for months the wall was bare.
Earlier this year, I painted a shabby pink door. Although I did love the idea of a door on this wall, this one was just too small, and not quite the look I wanted for this space. It went to the shop and then home with a happy customer.
Which brings us to today... A new-to-me, old, weathered lovely door. What a fabulous birthday gift! On this day it showcases a pretty oil painting of yellow roses. I imagine that I will have fun changing up the look from time to time. An old English porcelain house number would be charming, and perhaps a dried lavender wreath!
Oh the possibilities!
Today I pray that you are happy, full of peace and feeling blessed.
Thank you so much for visiting me.
Best Wishes and Blessings,
