I must say, I am in awe of my blogger friends
who change out their seasonal decor
more than once.
After I put together a display for each mantel,
a centerpiece for each table,
and a vignette on each coffee table,
I consider it done until the next season comes along!
Except this year we had Superstorm Sandy,
prompting me to clear the porch of all accessories...
including my French bottle drying rack.
Finding a spot for it inside,
I wrapped it with some leftover burlap ribbon
and hung moss rose ironstone cups
on the arms.
How's that for a quick change up?
After taking all the precautions we could outside...
(thankfully our broken sump pump had just been replaced last week)
It was time to wait and watch...lots of unknowns ahead.
So while sitting inside watching the rains and winds,
keeping an eye on the news from Manhattan where two of our
children live, and hoping not to lose power...
It seemed an opportune time to make little changes inside...
perhaps as a preoccupation or distraction.
Remember my tiny "entry" wall?
Perfect spot to play using some of my recent finds.
I was contemplating repainting the architectural piece,
but decided to keep the charm of chippy goodness with
sections of wood showing.
This little column makes the best pedestal.
Continuing the serenity of the green and white combination,
dried hydrangeas add a softening touch to the wire baskets.
Even though it was storming outside,
this new vignette provided a
calming, peaceful touch on the inside.
We have much to be thankful for this day after the storm...
Our children are safe and all is well where we live.
