Minor Changes

It's wonderful what a little sunshine and warmer temps will do for you.  I came home from my 24 hour shift and dug in cleaning, washing, dusting, and vacuuming.  I have the window in the kitchen open the thermostat turned off, and the front door open so I can see outside and wouldn't you know I saw a robin.  Oh and 2 candles burning and a new Air wick plug in scent upstairs.  lol.  Since I was dusting I figured I'd make a few minor changes to the decor. Nothing major just a little different.

After:

The peg rack is different lol OK the bench is too, but I didn't take a pic of that.

After:

I read in the Home Tour Country Sampler edition this year not to be afraid to mix patterns. So.... lol


I looked and I don't have a before pic of this because I didn't take one because of the TV.  Steve has yet to make me a cabinet to go around the TV.  Anyway, I had some black mirrored sconces on before and changed them to tin.  Not sure I like it yet.  I'm thinking these need to go above my headboard.



I also had to do some damage control.  Someone who lives in my home that fixes and builds things sat down with a pair of scissors in his pocket and RRRIIIPPPP!!!!  Of course I'm not naming names, but I think we all know who it is ;-)


And to think most times I add patches for the primitive look. LOL  Alright now it's confession time.  My chair has probably been ripped for about a month or more and I am just now getting around to fixing it.  Call it lazy I just never fixed it til today. :-/ lol.


Well, friends union break is over.  I need to get back to cleaning.  Check back Thursday for my thrift store goodies I found recently.

Your tweaking looks wonderful!! So fresh and new for spring....
I especially love your needlework -- the all-blue one has always been a favorite of mine....
Isn't it great that we can just add patches to the little accidents around the house -- it just adds to the charm of a primitive home!

Lovley Spring changes. Isn't it amazing the difference it can make by just switching around what is on a peg rack? Nice fix to the furniture. It just adds to the decor:) -Steph-

Your before and after are wonderful...I really love the first one - makes things pop much more (lightened it up a lot too).

I had to laugh at the rip in the pillow. You are right that we try and rough up and grunge things. But you know...even though we do that - it's different if WE MAKE THE BOO BOO and have to patch...then it seems like it's ruined. I love what you did with it!

I love all of the changes, Mary. Sure, you can mix patterns, stripes and flowers, etc. They look great when you mix.
Hugs,
