I mentioned before that
I've been reincorporating blues back into the decor
here at Heaven's Walk.
I missed it.
I truly enjoyed having the soft, faded red touches here and there
during the past year -
it's such a warm, happy color.
But the softness and airiness of springtime and bright summer days ahead
left me pining for my pale aqua and smokey blues once again.
I pulled out my down-filled pillow from a favorite Etsy shop, Sassycat Creations,
and placed it in front of my favorite grain sack which I had draped over the back of the chaise in the living room.
|Be sure to visit Jan at Sassycat Creations on Etsy. Her pillows are beautiful!|
The grays and pale blues are soft and summery looking.
Pale red is still making it's presence known though.
You'll find it in the piles of grain sacks on top of the armoire in the living room.
Yes...I'll be the first to admit that I have a grain sack addiction.
Can you blame me...?
I know I'm not alone, though.
The newly painted and distressed metal French bottle carrier was brought up
from the basement and placed on the coffee table.
Large, purpley blue hydrangeas were placed in Mason jars.
Fragrant peonies blossoms from my garden will soon replace the faux hydrangeas.
Oh, and I started up my waterfall in the pond yesterday.
Guess who showed up?
While Hubby and I had our first happy hour of the season on the back deck last evening,
they were all croaking a chorus,
happy to be back home again.
Ok, back inside....
Hydrangeas also made an appearance in an ironstone sugar bowl in front of the French candelabra on the round wicker table in the corner of the living room.
(and that, friends, is what my English instructor used to call a "run-on" sentence. lol!)
I love this vignette.
This silver candlestick was given to me by my mother. She always used a pair of these on special occasions when we had guests for dinner. One on each side of the holiday centerpiece like they used to do back in the day.
I've also been working on some recent ReStore finds.
They're close to be completed.
Oh, and just so you know,
after much deliberation, consideration, and hesitant fingers,
I deleted my Pinterest boards today.
I know...major bummer.
I had been reading too many scary scenerios lately from other bloggers,
and just didn't want the burden of "what if..." lurking constantly in the back of my mind.
If Pinterest decides to change their policy, I'll start pinning again.
But until then, if I see a photo I like, I'm just going to save it to my computer.
I'll miss pinning, but I'd rather be safe than sorry.
Ok, enough of my gabbing.
Time for me to get to work!
