I bought this lonely little lamp base ages ago for just a couple of dollars. It has been on a bookshelf forever. Then, when I realized that my favorite Amy Butler fabric is also a discontinued pattern, I ordered some more on etsy. I don't have much here... enough to do a little lampshade. But, it is enough to give it a punch. Plus, my mother and the Margarita Sisters are making me a throw with it and I think there will be a little more left over from what they have.
Here are the colors of paint I am considering. I will most likely do the grayish white on the walls... I am not scared of color by any means, but I need a light color because that room is so small and we will be taking photos for my etsy shop in there. And, I am not sure exactly what I will use the other colors on... furniture, frames, etc. I am pretty certain that I can sweet talk Mr. Hughes into getting a chandelier for the room at the flea market next weekend...and then it will need a vintage ceiling medalion... and that blue would be perfect for that!
And, since it is sunny, I took some photos of some of the outside fall flowers, just for fun!
This was a $5 wood box that we bought for Baby Hughes' pirate party... it supposed to be a treasure map box. I don't think it made it to that point though. But, it is perfect for pansies!
And, here is the centerpiece spread on our giant table on the deck. Unfortunately, it went from blazing hot with mosquitoes to rainy for 2 months to cold! So, we haven't been able to enjoy our deck much this fall. But, don't you just love hedge apples? I would love to bring some inside, but after reading Kasey's post about the acorn worms, I have a phobia!!
Oh, and if you are wondering which lap top case I chose, here it is:
It was one of Mr. Hughes' favorites out of the spread. I can't wait to get it! My Mac needs a cozy!
Alright, I'll leave you with just one more thing.... get your wish lists ready for this Wednesday. I will put up the McKlinky up Tuesday evening... I can't wait to see what you ladies are lusting over!
