We are Away!

Good morning! I hope wherever you are, that you are warm and safe. We are in Sunny FL. for the month so, I feel. for you who are having awful weather. I wanted to do a post to tell you that it may be awhile til I can post something pretty. We are having a good time. My sister is only 45 mins. from where we are so she came up for 2 days and we hung out. It was so nice to see here and be together.

Love to you all!!!

Some Winter Changes in the Master Bedroom

Good morning! I hope you are all trying to stay warm. I can not imagine the cold that is gripping the midwest!! Dangerous! We are getting colder each day this week and on Thursday our HIGH is to be 17! But, fortunately Joe and I are leaving Thursday morning for sunny and I hope warm, Florida! I am going to try to post while we are away so stay tuned:) Today I thought I would show you around the master, dressed for Winter.
 The bedding is basically the same, just a change of pillows after Christmas.
 I also got this faux fur throw for Christmas and love it with the bedding. It is so soft and comfy too.

 One of my favorite Asian ladies is on my nightstand along with Colleen's school picture, this year.

A little sparkle is always nice too!

 I painted this round sifter basket, black, years ago.
 The tray table at the foot of the bed has an orchid, an elephant and the twig ball in a cement vase.
 In the afternoon the sun comes in the windows and makes beautiful shadows.

 At night I love the glow of the lamps.


 Most of you know that we have had this bedroom furniture for probably 40 years now! I still like it though as I have never seen any like it since.



 Thanks for stopping by. I will be busy packing a LOT of stuff since we are going for a full month. So looking forward to seeing friends and family on our trip.

Winter Breakfast Room 2019

Good morning! It certainly has been winter here the last few days! Temps in the single digits and low teens and wind chills below zero! BRRRR!!!! Today it went up to 48 and it felt like a heat wave:):)  After the Christmas snowmen were put away I wanted to decorate for winter with lots of texture and also throw in some tropical touches, in preparation of us going SOUTH for Feb.!!!! I can't wait! So have a seat and I'll bring you some coffee! For those of you who are new here, my hubby built me this hutch for the last house. It is like an Amish hutch that we saw and he did it the same way. You can not see any nails or screws. I love it and love it in this house too.
 More of my baskets are around the hutch.

 On the top of the hutch I am using my black lantern, a faux plant and another large basket. I like to drape a garland across here too.
 On the shelves I have my demijohns, some pottery and 2 palm tree plates.
 In the 2 corners of the room, by the windows are these 2 shelf units that are actually plant stands. They are about 35 years old now.

 I placed some small pine cones in a tiny urn and under a cloche.
 On the tan wall are a basket, a metal leaf piece and a pottery piece.
 More baskets are on this wall too.
 Joe got these prints at a craft show and I had them framed for him....after he chose what he wanted:)


 I remembered that I had this palm tree lamp so brought it out for on the hutch.
 I found it at Walmart, years ago.
 Here are some nighttime shots.




 Joe built this table too. He made 2 for the last house and I like this here.
 Thanks so much for stopping by! Stay warm, where ever you are!
                                            XO, Pinky

Winter Kitchen Tour with Lots of Texture

Good morning friends! I hope wherever you are you are warm! It has been brutally cold here, temps in the low teens and wind chills below zero. UGH. Joe and I are going to Fl. for the month of Feb. and it can't come soon enough!!! I used some of my palm tree decor in the kitchen in preparation for being in Fl. I LOVE palm trees! So come on in, I'll make you some hot coffee! I did this vignette on the corner of the kitchen bar. I wanted to keep the center of the bar open for now. I also love to have lots of texture in the winter to warm things up. Baskets, different metals, pottery all provide different textures in the kitchen.
 The bar stools are metal and have stone like backs.
 As you will see, green is the main accent color I am using.
 The buffet area: I removed the Christmas elements and put back all the white dishes. On the top shelf are 4 of my herb plates. Above the cabinets are pottery, baskets and greens.
 We just got this dish from Joe's cousin the other day. It was his Grandmothers. I just love it. I will give it to my daughter and she can give it to Colleen!

 In the center is a bread board, pottery vase and some greens.
On this side I placed all different spheres in the glass hurricane that has a cement base.  The large scoop holds faux pears and a lidded pot completes the vignette.



 On the fridge is a wire basket with green apples, a copper bowl and my scale.
 A very large basket holds some greens. Palm tree towels on the oven door.
 The palm tree piece over the stove is made of metal so safe in this spot. A pottery bowl holds Joe's wallet.
 I have black and green utensils in the palm tree holder.


 This is why I kept the center of the breakfast bar clear, I love this view.
This vignette has an iron lamp with a rattan shade, a faux succulent in a pottery basket and another lidded pottery jar.


 Copper, a basket and a large pottery piece at the end of the counter.


 The view from the kitchen to the breakfast room. Copper molds are above the doorway opening.

 Around this pantry door are a large fishing basket, copper molds, a copper bowl and a pottery colander.

 I hope you have enjoyed the tour. Have a beautiful day!!!!! I hope you stay warm.

                                                               XO, Pinky
