I hope everyone
had a lovely Valentine's Day. Doug and I had a nice time even though he caught my cold :( He gave me these gorgeous lilies that I placed in a pitcher that his grandmother gave me. I love them. I love that he gives me lilies on holidays because "Lilly" is the love of our lives.
I managed to do a little decorating this past week after packing away the Valentines decor. I filled this vintage frame (at right) with pages out of a vintage cook book and a post card from one of my favorite local restaurants. I found the frame years ago at a thrift store for $2. It was gold and caked with dust. I painted it cream. It is cracked up but I like it that way. I filled the 3 tiered wire basket with some of my cloth dinner napkins. I draped my new anthropologie dish cloth over the wine shelf so I can stare at it all the time. I am happy with the new arrangement.
I also added a rope on the wall behind the kitchen table to display Lilly's artwork. I made the rope by braiding long strips of fabric and then tying bows on the ends. I hung the rope with little brass cup hooks. Lilly is so proud of her little gallery and her daddy and mommy are too.
My mom is here visiting and we went to one of my favorite thrift stores yesterday. I can't wait to show you what I found. I will share soon~Molly
