Ideas galore...

 We had a wonderful time spending Thanksgiving week with our daughter down south.  She took me to this awesome shop....which I really enjoyed walking through. Look how simple this centerpiece would be,  a special  bowl and a few artificial greens with a bit of red.


A vintage soup tureen as a centerpiece and oh did I like this plaid tablecloth with matching chair pillow.  How Scottish and homey.  It takes so little to make home special.  We are stripping the wall-paper off the living room walls and oh what work!  Time for an update though.  While at our daughter's home....I was so impressed with her beautiful home and draperies.  She generously gifted me with her left over fabric for drapes for our living room.  I am looking forward to my own 'new look' living room...after a week of painting.   The Lord is good! always and always.  In little or much. =)

I love the pretties from the shop you and your daughter visited. I would have never thought of using those objects to hold flower arrangements. All the best with you remodeling project. Wonderful that you can use the leftover fabric!
God bless your Sunday. Give Violet a hug from me!
