Now onto my post for today.
I was bowled over by the number of spirited comments,
pros and cons,
to what I'm doing in my dining room!
You guys really seem invested in my process.
I love that you're so passionate about what I'm doing in my house.
And I enjoy your opinions.
Not that I care about what you think!!!!!
I love living alone because.....
My opinion is the only one that matters!!!!!
HA HA HA HA HA!!!!!
For all you naysayers out there.....
(And you know who you are.....)
As Amy Chalmers at Maison Decor would say....
"You aren't the boss of me!!!!!"
I am painting more panels, and more panels and more panels.....
And I love them,
yes indeedy I DO!!!!!
So get ready for Saturday or Sunday, 'cuz I think I'll be done by then, and can show you all my industry and craziness!!!!
But for now....
Lets get back to my study!
(I was too lazy to reshoot this picture with a colored toss pillow,
so I used PicMonkey to add flowers to the pillow!!!!!)
(It looks kind of weird,
but it's better that that white block in the bottom photo.....)
I am waiting for the fabric to ship, so I still haven't make the new pillow covers.
But that's not what I set out to talk about today.
Boy am I easily distracted....
(now, where was I????)
Once I got over the realization, that I couldn't live without loads and loads of flowers on my furniture, on my walls, in my accessories.....
I got down to some serious ebaying!!!!!
The round picture is one I've had for years.
It's another of my cherished possessions that I originally got for a client, who didn't want it,
she and her husband thought it wan't elegant enough!!!!
CAN YOU BELIEVE THAT @#$!!!!!
Yes, Peggy, if you're reading this, I'm talking about you!!!!!
Then I found the little one above it on ebay.
These are probably from the 30,s or 40's.
I am very partial to this type of artwork.
I am a sucker for this stuff.
I LOVE THIS STUFF!!!!!
I found two more prints from the same period that I hung flanking the large oil over the loveseat.....
The dogs are some more of my favorite items.
They are chalkware Russian wolf hounds,
and I think they are da bomb!!!!
They just scream the 1920's!!!
One of my favorite periods of decorating....
I love them so much.....
Here's a closer close up!!!
What the hell.....
Let's get closer!!!!
Below them I hung two more of my majolica bird plates that I had collected for my living room.....
Well, they ended up here!!
I buy stuff for one room, and then it migrates when I'm not looking.....
The oil painting hanging in the middle of all this @#$,
is one I bought when I was in my 30's and used to go antiquing in
It's really dirty and old, but there's just something about an
old dirty faded decorative item that appeals to me.
It's probably because I identify with it,
although, I'm not so decorative.....
all of these flowers tie in with the prints I decoupaged
onto the folding screens.....
And the wonderful ebay find I showed you on Saturday.....
That's it for today, campers.
Next up in this room is my tabletop stuff!!!!!
But I may just show my dining room before I get to all my other goodies.....
It just depends.....
