Hi! Yes, I am a little obsessed with perfecting this space. Sometimes a picture is what you need to see balance a little better. I kept thinking I love those Hydrangeas there, but they really need to be a bit bigger. Well, while I’m contemplating getting a larger Hydrangea display I did a little swap-a-roo! I moved my vase of Iris’s off the table in den and added a few more.
Wow! What a difference that makes to me! I am much more satisfied with this.
What do you think? Much better, huh? And don’t worry I just moved the smaller hydrangeas here.
Sorry, Marty! Not sure if I should be re-entering again today but sometime inspiration hits a little late.
Also I had a request to see my stairwell stenciling so I’ve decided to share that today and join another party too. Of course that would be the Nifty Thrifty party because I did this because I was being thrifty.
My stairway is pretty as it was but has a very simple design. I love all types of moulding and had considered adding decorative wood trim but didn’t want to pay for what I would love to do. Sometimes, you have to prioritize your projects with your budget. This just was not high on my spending list. So I actually stamped these out on the wood with paint to get the look I wanted.
As you can see I am not very picky and didn’t worry with getting thick coverage. I wanted a subtle look so I chose a neutral beige color and stamped away. I am very happy with the outcome and since I already had the stamp and paint on hand it didn’t cost me a dime.
I think it adds just that little bit extra surprise that grabs your attention and makes you smile. Hope you like the changes and updated blog, man, am I on a roll. I’ve been drinking lots of water today from our blog friend Liz’s suggestion here @ http://lizssavvyseasons.blogspot.com/ . I’ve also added drops of lemon to help rev up the metabolism and it seems to be working. I am getting so much done today! Linking up with Marty again, and with Linda today as well at the following;
Well, gotta go, the screen porch needs cleaning again. The oak pollen is still high around here and leaving me with another mess. Have a great day! Thanks for stopping by AGAIN! :))
