::More Winterfying::

PSSSST...I'm no longer blogging here!
You can now find me at


So here's some other cold weather touches around the family room and adjoining dining room.

This is my attempt to reconcile with Old Man Winter.
A wee wood plaque I painted with chalkboard paint.

The pinecone thing is the last remaining centerpiece from my daughter's wedding.
I bought the wicker table several years ago, painted it white, then left it out on our screened porch thru a couple winters....it's chippy and awesome now.

 Got the cloche at Hob Blob 50% off.  Love how tall it is!
I'm sticking nests with real quail's eggs here and there.
I love birds.  
But you know that.

Made this burlap wreath last year for the wedding too.
Was gonna use it on the front door, but loved it on my beadboard doors.

Got the metal letter on Christmas clearance a few years ago at Restoration Hardware.  
It used to be aqua, but has aged to a vintage-look gold.

The dried stuff in the urn is blocking the side view of the cords in the back of the tv for those arriving at our house....like say, buyers, for instance. 

View from my couch.  We were told to take out my beautiful shaker farmhouse trestle table as it dwarfs the dining nook.  
It will be replaced with a rustic white round table my daughter is currently using...
she'll get the aqua one til the house sells.

 Looking in from the front hall.

Switched directions...looking at the place I took the last shot.

My wee hutch.

More quail eggs in a fake nest.  
I like to mix it up.

I love this black bird....the detail is loverly. 

Removing the big table gave us room to use this piece my parents gave me.
It's from Pottery Barn a few years back.

I adore it.
The drawers are super deep.
In our next house, I hope to use it behind a sofa and store all my yummy cottage/flea market/farmhouse magazines inside.

A real nest with the eggs this time.
All the metal pineconey candlesticks in this and previous pics were also from my daughter's wedding.

Thanks for stopping by!
For pics of my winterfication of the mantel, see yesterday's post.

Hi, Cindy. I came across your blog just recently and saw you live near Ft. Wayne. Our family lives near Warsaw and my sister lives in Ossian. Your life stories have truly touched my heart! So many changes for you recently and it sounds like in the near future. We recently moved from a modern home in a large addition to a small lake cottage that has needed some TLC. You can find me at one of my two blogs or on my google+ page.

It all looks beautiful Cindy. Good luck on the sale - I've been there and done that recently - it can be stressful! I'm sure someone will be delighted to call it there next home!

So cute. Pinned a bunch. I have those lighted twigs in a vase - but yours gave me the idea to bulk em up with some non-lit ones, too.

I'm always setting out little nests with eggs but I had never thought of putting one in a small bowl. Great idea :)
