I love to change things - you know - change the location of a teapot or cup and saucer.  I have been playing with my new Shabby Armoire and can't resist sticking more in here or there.  These best part is that I finally have room for my cake platters!

My husband has done a great job
painting a lot of our furniture
pieces which are mostly vintage and
some antique.

This week we have been getting a new furnace and air conditioning at our home and I am so happy that the wall thermostat was moved out of the kitchen where it was in a terrible location.  Of course, now the wall has to be patched and painted.

Hi Bernideen!
I love your caution to go slowly when you post a comment. Oh my goodness if I did that I would save myself a lot of headaches!!! I also should read what I write before I hit publish too!

Your hutch is looking lovelier each time I see it. I think you just might be having too much fun!!

p.s. The Linky was super slow today and I don't see my two links appearing. I'll check back later. Blessings!

Hello Bernideen,
Your armoire is so lovely painted and you have some very pretty pieces displayed in it. I love the red rimmed cake stand. That tea cart is gorgeous and I know I've told you that numerous times. Wish I could find one. They seem to be scarce around thease parts. I like your new header too; just lovely. I am working on something new too. Thank you for hosting and joining me at my HOME. Wishing you a delightful weekend.

Your home is so lovely, the pictures where you can see the sun brushing the armoire are lovely. And what pretty dishes you have in the armoire.

Hi Bernideen! Oh, I love your darling cabinet and it's painted pink inside? I love all of your pretties you've put inside too. It's fun shuffling things around especially when they turn out as pretty as yours!
be a sweetie,

The pink in the white cabinet is pretty. I wonder if that is a light or a reflection?

Honestly, Bernideen, you're about to make me go in search of some white paint with all your pretty new Shabby Chic furnishings! The armoire looks *great* and I can see why you're so happy to have such a terrific space in which to display cake stands!
