Finally Getting To Use Stored Treasures!

I've finally got a few pictures to show of the lake house. I still have things to do but thought I would share a few pictures I took this weekend.

It's really nice that I'm finally getting to use some of the things that I have been collecting for years that have been stored away. I tried to put a taller statue here, but when they are taller the bottoms are to wide to fit, and then I put a smaller statue and it just didn't look right with the smaller statue so I added the picture above her. I would love to hear you opinion, do you think I should just have a larger picture here and no statue or leave it as is.

My husband would complain occasionally about me having collected so much stuff over the years, but know I think he's quite happy that I had so that he didn't have to buy much at all for the new place. I love vintage pictures, and especially of beautiful ladies or cherubs. So I did a wall of picture.
Another love of mine is lady statues, and as you will see in another photo cherub statues also.
This is the entrance way. This is what made me fall in love with this house!
I'm not quite finished with this wall, but have started a wall of frames! I'm thinking of maybe putting a little iron bench at the bottom to cover up the electric outlet, I can't stand for the outlets to show.
Sorry for the photo, it didn't turn out very well. I've been having a lot of trouble with my camera lately. I have stored this mantel for years. This mantel came from the Sorina building in downtown Waco. When I first saw it I inquired about it and the owner said when she found something to replace it with she would sell it to me, well I waited years to get it. Finally one day she called and ask if I still wanted it and of course I was thrilled to get it, then it was in my storage for years, so now I'm so happy to be able to use it. I was afraid it wasn't going to fit where I wanted to put it..... but it fit perfectly, it was meant to be!
This is the living area looking into the entrance way!

I'll be taking more pictures soon. I'm having drapes made now and can't wait to get them back. To me drapes just make a room. Hope everyone has a great week!!!

New Purses & Pillows to Laurie Anna's Vintage Home

I wanted to share just a few of the new items that I took to Laurie Anna's Vintage Home this past Canton. I wish I had taken pictures of the store, it was beautiful, but I was to busy looking at all of the new goodies that was out. I did of course manage to buy a few things, and will be sharing them with you as soon as I get the last little details in my kitchen finished. I know it's taken so long, the hold up on the kitchen is the antique chandelier that I had stored and couldn't find where I had put it, finally did find it, then it had to be rewired. I'm hoping to get it back soon. Then there's the chairs that have to be recovered for the kitchen table. I'm on a waiting list for this. On another note I've been busy decorating the weekend house and will show some pictures next week. Okay back to the things I took to Laurie's!

We've finally added new items to the online boutique, sorry it took so long. I had problems with my computer. I still have a few more to add, but will try to get them up late this afternoon. Wishing everyone a great weekend. What plans do you have for the weekend? I think I may go to an auction, one of my favorite things to do.
