Around the house
I am really appreciating the colorful view out my kitchen window these days it is so pretty.
Next spring we will deal with the soil issue , I do see it.
This corner wall configuration has been hard for me to deal with.
I wanted a wall of mirrors but that is so much easier said than done...
But I am happy to say I have finally come up with a pleasing solution.
I found a set of 5 mirrors at Lowe's and we had the convex mirror from way back and the C mirror I found on clearance for $22 at Homesense , I just thought it was cheeky so I got it, and I like the mix and dimension it adds.
The large mirror on the left was another clearance damaged mirror I picked up.
I also wanted lanterns and have been looking for quite a while without success until yesterday when I was at Target, oh how I LOVE Target. I found these perfect lanterns on sale for $16.99 I loved their simplicity and price of course.
I needed to figure out how to hang them. First I thought of hooks , maybe small outdoor hooks......but they were too big and the lanterns would have been too far off the wall. So while at Lowe's I looked for a solution and that lead me to the curtain aisle and didn't I see these pretty tie backs and lucky me they worked perfectly and in fact I love them so much better than hooks.
So there you have a little run down of what's going on around the house as far as decorating goes...the next big project I want to tackle is the family room floor before Christmas, I am sort of dreading the mess and hassle. Maybe I will tackle painting the living room first , I am thinking a rich grey....daring right and I know so on trend but I can not get enough of grey in this house. I am looking to create a cozy night time space.
I hope you are enjoying the fall and thank you so much for stopping by my blog and taking time out of your day to see what I am up to...xo
