What a beautiful morning ! It was 51 degrees here last night. We've been sleeping with the A/C off and the windows open for a while now. But last night --- there was definitely some pulling of covers going on. Mmmmmm - perfect sleeping weather ! I have the kitchen French doors flung open this morning, doing a little catch-up on the laundry and putting the finishing touches on a "fancy" candlelier that will hang in the back yard from the big old ash tree, over the cupcake table, for Lily Kate's birthday party on Sunday.
I finished up the painting in the living room and finally got to the really good part --- decorating, of course. Here's a look at the new wall color - called Hot Chocolate -- which I absolutely love!
The beautiful framed picture above the armoire, which hides the tv and all the little black boxes, is from William's mother. Sadly, we know nothing about its history. We found it in an ancient trunk, along with all manner of other curious items. This picture is painted on black velvet. There was a back piece to it, so I suspect it was at one time a pillow.
The words say When Autumn Leaves Are Falling.
Just perfect ! It fits perfectly in this old frame I spruced up with a little flat black spray paint.
Stay tuned for pictures from the rest of the room.
