Sneaky Peak Tweak

While I was at Texas Antique Weekend I found this great ticking fabric.
The color is much more aqua than it appears in this pic and it is going
to coordinate well with the the floral print you see.  I plan to recover a 
foot stool with it and a couple of throw pillows too.

I decided to hang these antique sconces on either side of the old door.  
Daddy brought then back from Italy years ago.  Time to call the

I painted a set of three nesting tables in Annie Sloan's Provence.
By the way can you see the beautiful Azaleas just outside the window?
Too bad they don't bloom all year because they coordinate with the 
decor :-)

Here is the third littlest of the nesting tables.  I think it is so cute.
I am going to use it in front of the love seat.  One must always have a
cute little table for a tea cup  don't you agree?

You see what I mean ~ a tiny table for a teacup is an essential, both
for the decorating impact and for the soul.

Well that's it for today.  Lots of work to do.  I don't know about you
but when I am playing house I really get in the "zone".  I go to a
zen place and the hours just fly by!

Bentley is in his own zen place ~ the comfy chair in my studio.

Big Texas Hugs,
