Garden Room Vignettes and Forsythia

Hope you had a great St. Patrick's Day, friends. Starting this week we're now on the slide down to Easter. I've been posting Easter décor for the last few weeks since Easter is in March this year and I'm a little behind on sharing what normally would be until well into April. St. Paddy's Day was cut short this year, unfortunately because I really enjoy it.

Look Familiar?

Do you know where we are?

Yes, we're back in the studio.

And I have a confession to make.

I wasn't happy with the way my photos turned
out for the party last weekend.

If you remember, my walls were gold;
a great color for my kitchen,
but my studio...not so much.

I'd been wanting to paint in here,
since the paint bug bit me.

But I didn't know if we could move the heavy computer desk.(?)

We had our kids here over the weekend,
and since 30 year old backs are stronger than %* year old backs,
we had some help with the furniture.

So I decided to jump in and go for it.
I hate to waste paint,
and I had a gallon left over from the
 Dining Room extravaganza!

Ta Da!!

no more gold.
just my favorite creamy white.

Like I said, I'm happy (for now) with my kitchen color.
I was so inspired with all the great studio spaces,
I just was ready for the change.

I'm soooo much happier.

Everything looks so much better against this light and fresh wall color.

Even Baby is happy!!

Thank you, Kathleen,
for giving us an endless inspiration
of whites!

And thank you, Cindy for Show and Tell

What I Rescued This Weekend, Monday and Update on Desk

We woke up this morning to temperatures in the upper 50's! Wow, it felt like fall, but the sun sooned warmed us up, even though we stayed in the low 70's all day. I think this is the coolest August we've had for a long, long time. I have to say that August is my least favorite month of the year. Sorry all you great people out there with August birthdays, my husband included. The only redeemable quality to August, in my book, is that the next month is September. Yes, Fall!

So off we went Junkin', but today furniture was not to be found, just some great small goodies, and you know I'm always up for some "small" things.
And as you might have noticed the desk from last week has been painted. I have to say that it looks soooo much better in person. The garage lighting and the tightness of the space, which didn't allow for a good shot, just doesn't do it justice.

Before shot, last Sunday.

Yes, you have seen this one, but remember the photos from "Highlights" magazine, the ones where you had to guess what's different with the picture. OK, look at this one, then look at the next one. Who sees "what's different?"

Can you see it? Yes, the cat carcass on the left.
One of my garage assistants, Miss Wrigley.

My Hubbs found this great black chippy hand mirror.

Great silver stuff.

Another find from my husband. A couple's vacation portraits.
Wish I knew where. In the original frames.
Can't you just imagine these on a mantle or a bedroom vanity?

Little ceramic cream pitcher.

Love this great little silk coin purse.

Jewelry casket, apothacary jar, cake stand, and prisms.

I think this is a calendar graphic.

Cute little black bench in the background.

Jesus prints...I just love them.

Another old crucifix.

Silver goblets and champagne glass.

Old photos of families. I don't see "family" photos very often.

Wonderful old Cabinet Cards.

Do you know why they are called "cabinet cards"? You probably do,
but I didn't... because they were meant to lean against something in a cabinet,
Not to be put in frames.
Be sure to check in with Polly, over at Sassafras Stuff,
to see her junkin finds.

Have a great week,
Hope you found tons of great Junk this last weekend!
