I have to say that this blog (and all of you) bring me so much happiness. It is even strange, how this blog is changing my life. Thank you so much for all your encouragement!!!
SO, this life of “treasure hunting” is really exciting!!! About two weeks ago, I found and ad about some crystals. You know, the kind you hang on a chandelier?? So I have a chandelier I want to update. To make the story short…
The guy lived close to a friend of mine and was friends with the family!!! TALK ABOUT A SMALL WORLD!!!! “I die and don’t see it all”, like my uncle once said!!!
So, I went to his house and met this adorable little man, that has a passion for antiques like many of us!!! He even played a 3 million old record on a three million old record player for my friend and me. So cute.
Anyway… Bob showed me some of his treasures… (take your mind out of the gutter, LOL)
And I fell in love with these DOORS… If only I had a place to put it!!!
The only walls left in my living room where beside the window!!
Today Bob and my friend’s husband Brian, came to deliver the doors. SO KIND!!!
The doors weight a ton, so I would break myself in half and wouldn’t be able to carry them.
I am not sure about the blue blankets… I keep moving them around…
I had a bigger pile of magazines on this table… took it down a bit. This is the place we use the most.
In the basket you will find a MEASURING TAPE (I browse on Craigslist with the little black laptop), my glasses (went blind last year)HAND CREAM, and a little NAIL KIT (so annoying if you need a file and can’t find one)!
Note I took the blankets off the couch…
It will take a while to decide what goes on this table. It is always changing… Maybe a smaller vase with flowers would be better…
I love this silver tray sign I bought at The Passionate Home
in Langley. Tried to make some myself, they looked crappy… The black statue my mom gave me; she said it reminded her of me, because I am crazy about my son. It is a mom holding her son up high.
I love this picture because it is my stepdaughter with her daughter in her arms… I can see JOY in her face.
So here are the doors again!!!!
This ottoman is always there… I put my feet on it!
Here is my fireplace
(so you get a bit of a picture of the living room)
The fireplace is on the right wall of the sofa
And on the left…
The entrance, and Enzo!!
He is always trying to get in the pictures!!!
I think my house is “too brown”and I am trying to brighten up a bit…
But would you PAINT those doors???
Today I am partying at:
