I have been slowly redecorating our bedroom and I'm enjoying the fun of finding special things to finish the project. One small area between our window and a corner needed something that was just the right shape and size. I didn't know exactly what I wanted to put there, but I knew when I found it I would know it was right! Our walls are very soft sage green (which doesn't show up in the picture below) and I use darker greens and yellows in the room. You can imagine my delight when I found this wonderful old picture in a "25 cents each" box at a local church basement sale. It's perfect for my spot and the colors are exactly what I needed.
I found several other treasures and some great bargains through the day. After lunch we went to a little town about 3 miles from home to shop at an antique mall where we love to go. You never know what you will find that needs to go home with you -- some days we don't buy anything and on other days we find that special something that we must have. I found these yellow Fiesta salt and pepper shakers and they seemed to call out my name and say they belonged in my yellow kitchen!
There are other things to share from our adventures yesterday. I will share them soon.
