It has officially happened ~ I have turned into my Mom.
I keep moving things around. I have caught myself doing it
more and more often. Well, y'all know what they say,
Like mother like daughter ...
I added one of my vintage horse prints to the bar in the
family room. I just suddenly felt compelled to do it
because of the lamp base ...
You see how the base is decorated with a hunt scene?
I thought this print would feel right at home here.
Do you remember how just a few weeks ago I painted the
drum table between the cozy chairs at the library end of the
room and thought maybe I would paint the dresser at the
opposite end of the room the same color?
I did it.
And here it is. David was a bit dismayed at first. Men are
not usually crazy about painted furniture, but he got over it.
Our flat screen is on top of the dresser. TV's have never
ever fallen onto my list of favorite decorating accessories,
but they are a fact of life.
And I did something else. I hung my Daddy's old framed
map of the world over the TV. He loved this map and so
do I. It used to hang in our family room when I was a kid
and we would keep track of where Daddy was on his
business travels around the globe. Now it hangs in mine.
Y'all know by now that I am a sentimental fool.
Actually, I love maps. I always have. David does too.
And one last little thing ... I added some hydrangeas to this
wicker basket. Why the Cocker Spaniel? I just like him.
Yes M'am ~ I am turning into my Mom!
Big Texas Hugs,
Susan and Bentley
