I did some tweaking today due to a few purchases that I made over the weekend. The scene of the crime took place in the small hall area off of the music room. For those of you who may not remember, this area once held a wet bar. During our recent paintathon, we took out the wet bar and replaced it with a wonderful old red cabinet.
The house was already there, but everything else on the cabinet it different.
I found this great light on Friday when my friend, Jerrah, and I were out shopping. I had been wanting to put a little more light in this space, so this light was perfect. I got the light at the Cranberry Merchant which is located in Carterville, Illinois.
I felt like the space in front of the light was a little bare, so I spelled out the word firkins with these old alphabet blocks.
I got this basket at a local antique store. I thought the height of it would create some symmetry between it and the house.
I got this hanging candle holder yesterday at The Olde Homestead in Mt. Vernon, Illinois. I had been looking for one of these for quite some time, so I was really happy to find it. The only problem is that I think I could get addicted them really easily...LOL!
Here is a close up of the candle holder. I love the grungy candle that is in it!
I made two more purchases this weekend that I am really excited about. I need to do a couple of things before I can share them with you, but I think you will love them. So stay tuned!
