Dining nook

What a beautiful place to enjoy a meal, I am unable to post any comments at the moment due to blogger problems.  Apparently this problem will be fixed soon, so have a happy week everyone, and i hope I can leave comments soon.

Bedside table

One of my latest finds on ebay was this Queen Anne cupboard, I have found many beautiful pieces for my home on ebay or from one of the many local antique stores.

so with a coat of antique white paint, a bit of a sand and a new glass handles,

it has a new home in my son's room.

This is the before photo

Hope you all had a lovely weekend.

Happy Mothers Day

I hosted a baby shower at my house last week, the weather was beautiful, we were so lucky, lots of food was made and it was a lovely afternooon.

I picked some gorgeous David Austin roses from the garden, this is their first season I have had them in, they were two year old plants when I bought them.  They have given me so many beautiful flowers to enjoy.  Hope you all had a fabulous day.

What would Jackie do?

 Laura Ashley Cushion. 

I have found many beautiful pieces of  furniture that I have painted white for my home.  This little side table is one of them.  The book on top is called "What would Jackie do?".  I found this book at anthropologie in New York.

This book is written by Shelly Branch and Sue Callaway.  An inspired guide to distinctive living. A very funny read.

What the cover says " from fashion to finance, a sophisticated and entertaining guide that shows readers how to attain the elegance and practical smarts that defined Jackie O".

Enjoy your week.
