Special Piece from a Special Friend

It's interesting isn't it? How we meet our friends. My newest friendship began with scanning Craigslist. Posted was a terrific vintage tole lamp. I of course had to have it (will post pics of my lamps another time) as well as another tole lamp table. In the pics was a gorgeous header. I purchased the lamps, but stepping out of my box, asked if she'd be interested in selling the header. She laughed and told me everyone asked her that. We found that we had much in common and have been shopping and planning sales together. And, a few weeks later, she did ask if I was still interested because she was changing a few things. I was so excited. While it did not end up where I had originally planned, it is now in the perfect spot above my bed. Even my husband likes it. Just had to share....hope you will think it looks as great as I do!

Simple things.....

It has been so long since I last posted. A year and so many changes. We have moved back to Phoenix. My kids and grandkids are here and that is great...I really enjoy spending time with them. But, I also miss my mother and siblings and of course Texas. Round Top, Urban Market, Judy many great places to shop with incredible vendors. Then there was my little ranch house. I loved it so and all the quirks that come with a house that is almost 50 years old. Now we have a brand new home.....which I truly do understand how blessed I am to have a house. It's just that it hasn't felt like a home yet. But it's getting closer with my latest purchase. Did you notice my grainsack table runner? I purchased it from Maria at Dreamy Whites, and I just love it! It warmed up my dining area right away. I'm sure most of you have read Maria's delightful blog and visited her on-line store. She is just the sweetest person. Hopefully you had the opportunity to see her on the Nate Berkus. Anyway just had to share....because it truly is the little things that help us turn a house into a home. I hope you've had a wonderful Tuesday!
