Five things I always find a place for

IDining Room Redo 020 am guilty of changing accessories, drapes, art etc. from room to room on a frequent basis.

I have a storage area in the basement where the items not being used are housed until I bring them out again.

But this momma does have favorites and some of my favs have never seen the basement.

They may be moved from room to room and have a new home, but they will not be banished to that old basement.

Here are 5 favorite  things I always make room for. What about you…  Do you play favorites?

          Dining Room Redo 018

My fav mirror has been with me for many years. At this time it is looking fabulous over the mantle in the Dining Room.

My favorite Pottery Barn vase. It has been in every room. It looks wonderful on a table in the hallway at this time.

This sweet little blue container was found at Ross.  I added the greenery which came from Hobby Lobby. It is right at home in the powder room.

This tall urn has been used for staging client’s homes. It makes an impressive statement. When not being used for staging, it has a place in my Dining Room.  It has been glazed with antiquing glaze.

This lovely compote came from that exclusive shop called “Goodwill.” I think it was $2. Did it look like this? No

Did I have vision it could look like this? Yes siree.  It was a brown and dirty little piece. I cleaned it up and painted it with Annie Sloan paint.

It has found a place in the Master Bedroom for now. It will always have a place somewhere because of it’s versatility.


Did I say five things?  I really meant six.  I couldn’t leave this priceless item out.

It was given to me by one of my three daughters on Mother’s Day. It moves from place to place in the house and usually is on my desk. It is the smallest of my 5 …I mean 6 things, but it is the biggest in my heart. “Mother your constant love and belief in me have been my inspiration. Thank you for all you are in my life, my mother and my guide.”      Tissue please.
