filling in the blank...

Do you all hesitate like I do when it comes to making a commitment to actually hang something on a wall? Especially after a new coat of paint goes on? I gave my little old kitchen a fresh coat of paint after Christmas...2008...and still haven't finished hanging things on all the wall space. It went from sage green walls to beautiful blue. You might remember from a past post that I love mirrors so I knew I would definitely hang one to reflect more light and found this amazing vintage medicine cabinet mirror.

Of course I couldn't have just one mirror! I found this one while treasure hunting. It was originally gold but knew it would look better in a dreamy vintage white...

Look how sweet this little tray is!!

I bought this on Ebay...hand painted by 4wits-end. Her work is amazing!! Then I framed a lovely vintage looking piece of scrapbooking paper in an old frame that I painted white then lightly distressed.
Still looking for a little something to put over it, which needs to be just right. I purchased this old frame on Ebay, painted it white and had my husband add wood so I could make a chalkboard for messages ~ 19 days til Spring!

I found this beautiful calender at Michaels for a buck!

I'd love to find one of those old style phones for the wall that Pottery Barn used to sell. I think they only have desktop ones available now.

As you can see there was still a big empty space...

Until Friday's mail came...

Isn't it spectacular! It's from the very talented Paula at Castle and Cottage. I finally committed and am so glad I did!!

Pa-tis-se-rie...noun ~ A bakery specializing in French pastry. My family thinks it is funny because I am so not a baker!

I was going to hang some milk glass plates underneath but thought it might be too much or maybe I just can't commit yet!

How gorgeous! Love that beautiful color!!! And yes...I do that too--takes me FOREVER to commit to hanging something on the wall!

Oh, DO hang the milkglass plates under your beautiful new sign--I think it would look just perfect!

Happy First day of March!

Hi Sandi,
I have been looking at her signs too! They are so gorgeous!! I really don't have too much trouble committing to hang things on the wall. I have the problem of when I do get it hung I like it?? If I do it stays too long it seems! lol

Beautiful!! Everything is as lovely as can be!

My hubby wishes that I hesitated every once in a while to hang things on my walls. ;-)

Much love,

I think the milk glass plates would look wonderful! I read in your previous post that you were suffering from booth envy because of the beautiful, all neutral booths you've seen. I'm going to share my reactions to them. I love them... love the look, love the ambience love the merchandise & it's the way I try to decorate my own home. But when it comes to shopping, I am likely to spend the most money in an eclectic booth like your's. Just my 2 cents!

Welcome to's a wonderful community!
