ok so we are going on day 2 of no hot water and no heat. and now just received word that we will be going on to day 3. may God have mercy on us. the boiler as previously noted went kaput sunday night and will not reignite. repair man says wednesday afternoon. we say… crap another morning showering at the gym (without actually working out) although maybe since it will be our second time there we might as well workout? stay tuned.
so this weekend i did manage to do a little rearranging. and by rearranging i mean taking down the last of my “winter” decor and putting something a little springy up. i couldn’t resist these signs that my pal heidi at feather and birch brought in to the found cottage and i think i found a home for them… for now.
i am really struggling with the cherry walls and floors. i really do not want to paint them because the wood is so pretty BUT i’m having a difficult time neutralizing all the red. everything i place on them… just makes the walls look redder. i should start a pinterest board dedicated to cherry wood so i can find some ideas. you know the second i paint the wood, cherry will be all the rage. lol. so red it shall stay and i shall work with it and not against it.
i also am trying not to put tons of nail holes in the wall which is difficult when doing a gallery wall. i tried to hang things where existing nails already were OR placing them in the seams and not right in the middle of the plank.. which also makes things more difficult.
the small stool leg is a piece i found for $10 at the barry county antique show that i thought was really cool and architectural and gave a little height to the table. i am going to get one of bird and feathers giant air plants to stick on the top of it to add a little greenery to the table. fill it out a little if you will.
the plastic cow head was brought in by the family roost to the found cottage .. i collect the deer versions for the penthouse but this little gem didn’t even make it to the sales floor. it had to be mine. the embroidery sampler i found at a shop in holland, no so shabby. i’m thinking that the two emerging trends in vintage are going to be embroidery samplers and enamelware (even more so than they already are). start collecting now before martha steward features them and the price 4x’s. the best part about the embroidery sampler? it has sheep on it 🙂
what do you think of my quick little entryway gallery wall? it needs one more little piece to tie it all together… stay tuned…
