happy valentine's day...

Happy Valentine's Day!

I want to say a big Thank You for all the kind words of support and thoughtful wishes and prayers you have all been sending me!  I am feeling very blessed!  I will bring all this blog love with me this week to help keep me thinking positively and put my mind in a happier place!

Remember when I shared my little kitchen makeover and the few spots I still needed to fill in...
Well, a few Saturdays ago after I went into the shop I came home and found this up...
The day before I had Jim hold them up for me so I could see if I liked it or not...
I had just finished painting the frame white and I picked up the "F" at Anthropologie around the holidays.  I think I like it! 

My kitchen makeover has been coupled with a little den makeover too.  I started it off with this chippy old chair...
As well as my Mom's old table...
I shared the beginning of the makeover here and how the table may get a coat of white...
Well of course it did...
I love the way the table came out but was not sure at first how to dress her up...
But everything fell into place...
I kept it simple...



Jim brought me home a bunch of big burlap bags.  I washed them, trimmed the cut ends (great scraps for projects) and am having fun using them around my  nest.  I even tucked one in the basket...
While the room is well on it's way it still needs a few things.  I want to get a new slipcover for the love seat (I am eyeing a piped cotton twill one, in natural, in the LL Bean catalog)...
And I would like a chandelier...
And while I love my cork board over the computer...
The wall needs something to detract from all the not so pretty yet necessary stuff (keeping it real photo alert)...

My vision is to mix old mirrors, architectural salvage and a little je ne sais quoi.  I am hoping to be inspired and find something wonderful while doing a lot of blog surfing and internet shopping while I recuperate!

I am so glad I decided to keep the old fan...


I am hoping to link this up before I go with Kathleen for White Wednesday over at Faded Charm.  I can't believe I am going to miss out on a few!

Thanks for stopping by today!  I hope your Valentine's Day is a sweet one!
...you'll be in my heart ~ be back soon!

Oh Sandi your room looks gorgeous!!! Your mom's table definitely looks stunning in its new white coat! I had to laugh when you said you had your hubby hold things up, I make mine do that all the time! A little to the left, an inch up, nope not there, about a millimeter down now...hehehe:)

We all adore you so much and will be flooding you with positive thoughts and prayers for sure!

Sandi said...

That table is just beautiful painted white Sandi! I love it! Your whole room is coming together very nicely and the burlap adds the best touch. Love it all!

You will be in my heart this week and in my prayers as well!!

This room looks wonderful with all its vintage charm. I love it. I went down and read the post before this one and read that you will be having surgery. I am sure all will go well and I hope your recovery goes easily. I can't believe you took the time to leave a comment on my blog today with what you have going this week. Thanks so much and have a speedy recovery!

Sandi, your home is looking so lovely. I think the Anthropologie letter fits perfectly inside the frame, and it looks great. Your office area is to die for, I mean, really!!! Good move on painting the console table white. I like it! I have to admit that I am starting to like burlap. I wish I had the skills to make a few pillows for our sofa. I do have a tiny little bit of burlap in my home: a cord cover in my laundry room, LOL!

I hope you have a Very Happy Valentine's Day! :D

xoxoxo,
Ricki Jill

Oh, I love how you decorated the table! Everything looks so nice. Painting it white really changed the look, and I love the milk can on the floor and the wire basket with the burlap. Great job! I absolutely love your little crock with dried hydrangeas in it. FABulous! Wishing you a speedy recovery, Sandi. Take care! :)

michelle said...

Sandi,
I don't know how I missed the previous post, but I wanted to let you know I'll be praying for you, your family and all the hospital staff.
I'm thankful it's benign and that it was found by the doctors and not be side effects.
I have a feeling a certain someone is going to be taking very good care of you...based on what he's already down. What a keeper.
Keeping you in my thoughts.
Deb
