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

Tuesday, March 22, 2011


I am joining the Tuesday Display Chain hosted by Misi at 1890 Gable House Musings.  This week’s theme is “Recently Acquired.” 

First I want to share my dust ruffle that I finally finished for my Blue/Brown Guest Room. 


It is made out of brown burlap and I am so happy with the way it turned out – it is exactly what I was hoping for.  I still need some lamps and a few accessories.  But, to me,  that is the fun of decorating – searching for those “just right” items.  We will be visiting our favorite antiquing town on Saturday for their monthly street fair – I’m hoping to find some goodies there.

My life has been crazy busy with family responsibilities lately, so this has been a slow month for prim decorating at my house.  But I do have a couple of “recently acquired” goodies to share.  Last week my sister gifted me with a neat old jar and a crockery pitcher that she picked up at a yard sale.  I have used them both in a spring display on my stove board.


I have missed participating in the display chain the past few weeks, but have enjoyed checking out all of the inspiration posted by those who have participated.  Thank you for stopping by and be sure to hop over to Misi’s blog and check out everyone’s displays.

Spring Blessings,

I love the display on your stove board!
And the dust ruffle is great. I shop like you do, wait until you find the right piece and you just know when you see it that it will be perfect!

I love how your dustruffle turned out, the room looks real nice. The pitcher full of flowers and the old jar makes a nice spring statement. Thanks for joining me on my blog and leaving such a nice comment. Vicky

Cute dust ruffle! What a neat idea to make it out of burlap, looks great with the quilt.

I agree with you... the fun of decorating is searching out those pieces that are just right. I went antiquing with some friends this week and got so very excited about every one of my finds. They had a good time laughing at me, but the thrill of finding just what you're looking for is so exciting!! =]

Your dough board looks wonderful! How sweet of your sister to gift you with such neat finds.
