A Few Fun Finds...


Just a few fun finds to share this week...I love this little porcelain collie figurine from the thrift store...it doesn't matter a bit to me that he's missing the tip of his ear!  He's found a home on my hutch.  The clock face is a Pinterest pin project that I actually did...printing downloaded clock faces and putting them on old cds...


I re-did a little corner of my living room recently...
 

The runner is a Homegoods find...its so long, I have it folded in half to use here... LOVE the black stripe!


and this little wood box is from a vintage backgammon set I found at the thrift store...I like the rustic patina and corduroy handle...
 


I've been needing a touch of spring around here...we had 2 more snowstorms roll through and I now have what must be my millionth cold of the season!  So I'm going to pretend it doesn't look like January outside and start bringing in some spring!


These beautiful begonias make me think it can't be long now...


Do you remember this photo I took at the Bachman's Ideas House?  Well, artist/designer Caroline Simas of Multiple Blessings~ she did the great pillows~ has a fun blog post out about this!  You can see more of her great designs, too!


You can click on the photo above, if you missed my original blog post...
Thanks to all of you for your kind comments about the memo board on my last post! 

Until next time...I've got a date with a warm blanket 
and a stack of magazines!

  4. Such pretty things Linda! I love the Pinterest thing with the CD's how clever! Very cool backgammon game too! Your flowers are pretty. It's chilly here, (compared to what I'm used to this time of year) but at least we can see spring flowers and trees budding all over the place! Stay warm!

    aww you are a rescuer of a mishandled doggy.
    I am sure it will find nothing but love in your home ;)

  13. I love your new header, Linda! I think I have that same cup except in brown...I like yours better. It's hard to believe that tomorrow is the first day of spring, isn't it? It feels more like January! xo

  14. Your 're-do' looks so nice and I never mind a little chip on something like the doggy (actually I can't even see it). I wish spring would come to MN, I hear about the snow from the husband and I try not to tell him how nice the weather is here in AZ!

  15. Linda,
    What a sweet little nest. Now, you need to get well because that snow is going to be gone soon and then you can enjoy some warmer weather.

    Blessings,
    Linda

  17. First of all, I love your new blog header photo! The collie dog is a sweet addition to your shelf. Your new finds look fabulous on your dresser, and the lamp is something I'd like for my house. Love it!

    I hope a few hours of browsing through magazines makes you feel better. :)

    1. If you type in "clock faces" on "Search" on Pinterest, it will bring up all kinds of pins...things you can download, and others have done them!

  26. Your touches of spring are so pretty. I love the little dog and your table display. The girls and I were talking about how terrible it was to have such a cold, windy first day of spring. I'm craving sunshine and time playing in my garden.
