~Now I’m Playing in the Living Room~

We had been wanting new furniture in our living room for a while now. After going to several furniture stores…we finally found some new pieces for our living room.


Got a new sofa and a chair & 1/2…but my favorite piece is the old wood cart that we got from the wood store in the little town we live in. The cart is a little beat up on the top, so my husband is going to sanded it down some and if that doesn’t work…he will put new wood pieces on it. I just love that he does wood working.

I had some rusty tin containers that I gave makeovers to…painted them silver and it gave them more of a farmhouse feel.


I really like the pieces better painted silver…than the rusty brown. They now show up much better on the black bookcases.


This next tin piece I got at Hobby Lobby. It is a huge tin candle holder and I love the farmhouse feel it has too. The milk bottles came from Hobby Lobby too.


Just had to share the pretty sunset we had last night…from my back yard.


Until next time….

Blessings from me to you.  ~Cindy


~Playing In The Dining Room~

I decided that I wanted a change in our dining room…that would give me more of a farmhouse feel.

First thing I did was paint this brown pitcher…


…to silver and I think it says farmhouse now that it is painted the silver.


Next I put the 3 tier Pottery Barn tray on a burlap runner in the dining room table.


While trying to figure out what I wanted to put in the tray…I decided to layer another runner on top of the burlap runner. Then I got thinking that I wanted to put some embroidery on the top runner with a farmhouse design.

So up to my sewing room I went to put a design on the runner…


…and I really think this rooster design says farmhouse to me.


I decided to put some of my smaller white pitchers on the 3 tier tray and added 3 burlap flowers in the middle tray.


I really like how it turn out…and says Spring to me. Even though it has been really cold here in Ohio.


Until next time…. Blessings from me to you…~Cindy






~Another Year Older~

Yes…I’m another year older!! Funny how that is…I don’t feel any older. Mr. D and I got yummy cheesecake from The Cheesecake Factory a few days before my birthday and then on my birthday…we had dinner at Olive Garden. Then a few days after my birthday…my granddaughter came over to spend the day with me…she was on her Spring break from school. We watched a few Nicolas Sparks movies. It was a fun day!

A dear blogging friend sent me some wonderful birthday gifts that I just had to share with everyone. Love this rag wreath that Cheryl made…it is so pretty. I like how it looks in this old wood tray I have in our living room.


I saw this photo on Pinterest….where they hung windows in the hallway and put a wreath on one of the windows. I have several old windows and I just might do this in my hallway.

Cheryl also gave me this sweet little angel. Love the saying…”Let the stars remind you that you always have a friend in me”.


Thank you…dear friend for the wonderful birthday gifts.


Hope everyone has a wonderful evening.

Until next time…..blessings from me to you.  ~Cindy
