Hello, friends! I spent the weekend in Des Moines, Iowa.
I traveled with a friend whose college son was performing in the musical,
Next to Normal. I'm glad we had sunny, clear weather for travel as it was
snowing before we left and now it's snowing here once again. It's coming down
fast and furious with whipping winds. My son works for a pizza restaurant where
he's one of the delivery persons, and his manager was actually considerate enough
to call him and tell him that their restaurant was not doing deliveries tonight.
This mama is relieved!
Even though I plan on re-doing my entire bedroom, including the wall
color, I was tired of looking at the plain, boring walls ~ so I created a small
gallery wall above my grandma's secretary desk.
I simply shopped my house - went through my collection of pictures,
frames, and mirrors that I have stashed in my basement.
My grandma's desk is a beautiful piece, but it's missing the handles on the
front, which makes it really difficult to open. I think this piece would also benefit
from a re-do with paint.
I got this jewelry stand at World Market. I like how it can hold a variety of
jewelry...bracelets, rings, and earrings.
And, I used a cake stand (thrift shop!) to hold some perfumes.
I like using household items in unexpected ways.
Thanks for visiting with me today. I love and appreciate all your comments!
