…thoughts from my heart on my love for God, family and the care and decorating of our home

Wednesday, November 3, 2010


With the help of my DH I finished a couple of projects to complete a wall display in our Living Room.  I had started with a framed stitchery of The Lord’s Prayer and added candle sconces found at Goodwill.  But this is a large wall and it still needed a little something.  My DH made a peg board for me and I painted, distressed and stained it.  I hung this to the left of the stitchery with a basket and a battery candle.  I also painted and stained a small shelf that I found a couple of weeks ago at the Antiques Fair.  I displayed the pewter pieces that I found at the Fair on the shelf and hung it to the right of the stitchery.

Here is the shelf before painting.


This is the completed wall display.


I also displayed the crockery pieces that I found at the Antiques Fair.  I added them to the shelf by our TV cabinet – the three pieces on the top shelf, the crock on the left of the bottom shelf and the jar on the left of the second shelf.  I am liking the way this display is coming together.


This is how it looked before adding the new found crockery pieces.


And one more thing.  I love the shape of this bowl I found at the Antiques Fair.


I displayed it on the Kitchen counter with lots of dried potpourri.

Today I took my Mom to the doctor because she has been having pain in her shoulder, neck and up the back of her head. I am so grateful that the diagnosis was muscle spasms and not something more serious.  With medication she should be feeling better soon.

I hope you are all having a blessed week.

With a grateful heart,

Great wall display. I love the new look of your shelf. You can't go wrong with black. That bowl looks like a big pepper of sorts. Very cool. So glad to hear your mother doesn't have any serious issues with her health. Still muscle spasms can be very painful. I will keep her in prayer.
Enjoy your day.
Hugs, AMY

Sue everything looks really nice. I especially love that cupboard with the crocks and pewter.
That little shelf is so cute. You can't have too many little shelves, can you?
