Since I'll be making the trip to Nasvhille
this week (YIPPEE)
I don't really have time to do a biggie post
with photos you haven't seen before.
I thought I'd just search through my old photos
and see what I could come up with
on the fly.
You girls who have mantles are so lucky.
I've always wanted a fireplace
and a mantle to decorate.
Thus, I improvise.
The cabinet that holds my ironstone is my pretend mantle.
I decorate it for all seasons and some in between.
I love to use old windows and shutters as back drops.
Once in a blue moon, I get tired of white
and change things up a bit.
It never fells, enough is not enough.
So I add something.
Nothing stays the same.
I add this, take away that.
Move this here, move that there.
It would drive a crazy person insane.
I don't know why I ever got rid of that arch!
Whatever was wrong with me!
Not quite finished, I add the textures and some height.
Another backdrop that I sold.
Why did I ever let these pieces go?
As much as I love doing this,
the clutter drives me crazy and on a whim I have
a yard sale and sell it all!
Where is that small galvanized bucket???
This is one of my favorites.
This was a fun one.
Christmas is always my favorite one.
It is never the same.
Life is constantly changing.
If we know this, why do we go kicking and screaming?
Lord, teach me to accept the changes.
Just as there is beauty in the change-ups,
may I find the beauty in my seasons of change.
