I hate dusting. I usually save it for a special occasion. Hee,hee. However, this weekend, I decided to change things up a bit and hit the bookshelf in my Living Room for no reason at all!! (Okay - there was reason - my shelves were starting to look grey-ish with dust!!)
Of course, because I had to take everything off the shelves, I took special care in re-arranging them all as I put them back. I took some shots of my favourite things after all was said and done.
After Christmas, I needed some low-colour, restful , decor for my front room. I switched a lot of the colourful, sparkly items out for low-key white and cream.
At the top pf the bookshelf went a few of my white pitchers and a milk glass bowl.
Books add some much warmth to a home - I used several here.
I have often thought of painting or wallpapering the back of my bookshelf - but I always come back to the simplicity of the solid wood behind all of my "objet d'art."
My in-laws gave me this set of flower vases for my birthday last year. I love the script on them.
I found this in a little gift shop a few summers back on a weekend away, just hubby and me. I was just about to have our third child and we couldn't have felt more blessed!
This is a stack of my hubby's travel and wine books. He had read each of them several times, but never tires of them. They need to be kept close by!
We are off on our 3rd trip to Europe together this summer. Hubby has been to UK only once before - this will be my 4th trip. I love it there and I am so eager to return. Our travel guides have been well-read already and we don't leave until August!
I am not sure what to call this "rose-covered thing." I bought it years ago at a discount decor store. Its little porcelain roses caught my eye.
I guess the dusting was worth it. I got to pay a visit to some of my favourite things. I hope you enjoyed the tour!
Please leave a comment - and become a FOLLOWER! I'd love a few more of those!
