A Little Glimpse~

Hello all, I finished unpacking and sprucing up the dining room and thought I'd show you some photos.

I really wanted to change things up in this house, but I always find it hard to deviate from what I've done in the past. Sometimes I wish I had someone that could come in and give things a fresh perspective. That's what I really need!

A quick thank you to my sweet friend Cheryl and her lovely Mom Julie for the wonderful dried hydrangeas. I'm just giving you a peak right now, but wait until you see my antique dough bowl full of these beautiful blooms!














Well, what do you think?
I'm off to take a much needed rest, I'm so dog tired!!
Talk to you all soon, have a great weekend.
Sincerely,
~Melinda

  13. why deviate from what you do best.
    It always looks amazing, just be you and it will stay that way.
    Trust me, once you try to change to mix it up a bit you spend more time putting it back the way you love it.
    Hope you are taking care of yourself, and go slow. We will all be here when you are finished even if it is a year from now.

  22. How gorgeous it turned out...you really don't need anyone to give you a new perspective, you are one talented decorator.

    Hope you get the rest you need, I know how hard it is to move.
