After looking at my Dining Room for this last week, I realized I needed a change. One day things look fine, the next day you want to totally start over. So first, down came the honkin' window box...now what? Whatever is on this table needs to be substantial, at least I feel like it does. So I grabbed the old basket from under the buffet, white poinsettias and all. OK, so maybe all the mental energy I had was directed at finding a new centerpiece.
I think I'll keep the grain sack runner here until after Valentine's Day.
It does have a red stripe, after all.
And I'm keeping the redwork tablecloth on the buffet,
I just decluttered a little from this photo.
I looked at it closely and realized
that there were little hearts woven into the design.
Why hadn't I noticed that before?
And the faux chalkboard above the sideboard in the Hall
got it's new message, compliments of my sweet sis,
Happy New Year!
Other than that, I just removed the white feather tree
and replaced it with the iron urn of faux paperwhites.
OK, so that wasn't all that drastic.
A few simple changes were all that I needed...
How about you...
does your brain need a vacation?
Thank goodness I have all of you out there
that are on top of your game.
Now, I'll be moving on to the Living Room...
my mantel needs some h.e.l.p.
Great turnout for the first

(I really needed it;
the inspiration that is.)
