I found this adorable needlepoint at some point this summer. I stuffed it in the fabric closet until I was ready for some brown again.
I had a severe brown overdose after being obsessed with it for a few years. I gave most of my chocolate stuff away and only kept my favorite things.
I made it into this pillow last week and knew that my brown hiatus was over.
Smitten is a word that comes to mind.
I decided to do some Thanksgiving decorating in browns and purples out here in the sunroom.
I had two Hydrangeas from Kroger.
The blooms were dead on the plant but they had dried perfectly. They were a lovely shade of dusty purple.
I have tried and tried to dry Hydrangeas myself to no avail.
These were super cheap, well, because they were dead.
My intent was to snip off the blooms but I decided to just leave them in the pot and make a drop cloth pot cover.
I told you about my thrifty finds last week. I found two plaid throws. I love plaid at the holidays. I couldn't believe I a saw a vintage Faribo throw in brown, purple and yellow.
Well, I knew just had to have it to throw in the chair.
I dropped it off at the cleaners on my way home.
I stole Bill's papasan stool and spray painted it white.
It was in his office but he isn't here during the week.
The librarian at work was cleaning out her closet. This little microscope box was slated for the trash.
I grabbed it and painted it with CeCe Caldwell chalk paint in Vintage White.
I have a confession to make. I told you I didn't like chalk paint.
I have grown to love it for small projects like this microscope box. I am about to get some more but it's pricey at $37.00 a quart.
I did some re-potting and trimming to get my little sunroom plants ready for winter.
I've corralled them in the box.
Love it. Maybe it will keep all the dribbling contained.
I have been working on bringing more brown into this room.
I've also been tweaking the vignettes in here with
a few vintage, Thanksgiving related collectables.
I'll keep you posted.
