THINKING SPRING!

I know it is only January 3.....is it too early to start thinking spring? After the tree and all the trimmings are put away I am ready to move on. I decided to work on the living room and dining room. Moving things around...moving things out....moving things in .....
I brought this dresser in from my shop. I did one a couple of years ago for my daughter's office and always loved the look of the numbers. This is in the corner of my living room. I am already finding it is great for storage of games, candles. I am sure it will not take me long to fill the drawers! I am also thinking ahead to my spring sale. This is a gift box. I always think the packaging should be a gift in itself!
Some more rings using vintage earrings and an old watch face.





Inspire Good in Others.....wouldn't those be great words to take to heart....





Dining room looking in from the living room.





I love the look of "chippy" wood.............











Sara gave me this pink bowl for Christmas.....I just had to leave out some of my vintage Christmas ornaments....the colors were just too perfect.














I painted my mother and grandma's silverware boxes.....love them so much better then the dark wood.












have you guessed that I love old watch/clock faces??

I am still having fun playing around with my new camera.....


I am trying very hard to remember these humble words of Corrie Ten Boom
