Hello Dear Readers!
Happy May Day!!!
I am hoping I can find some Lily of the Valley to give to my loved ones.
Did you know that it was a tradition in France
to give your loved ones Lilies of the Valley on May Day?
And speaking of France . . .
A few weeks ago, I discovered a beautiful Trumeau mirror at my fav consignment shop.
It was love at first sight. However, being that we are building a new house,
it has been suggested that I only spend what I need for the house.
I did not “need” that mirror, but on the other hand, I did.
It would look wonderful over one of the mantels or the powder room.
A GREAT FIND – CHELSEA HOUSE MIRROR
When I arrived home, I posted this photo on my Instagram:
I received lots of comments like …. go back and get it!
I showed my hubby the photo I took of it and told him how I loved it,
but I was good and I left it behind. He said, “if you love it, go back and get it!”
I did not question him!!!….the very next day, I called the consignment shop and it was still
there and I told them to put a sold sign on it! Happy Dance!
I mentioned to my hubby that the mirror came out of a beautiful estate
in which the owner had exquisitely decorated her home in French Country decor.
The mirror was Chelsea House and a fabulous deal.
He knows all about Chelsea House. I educated him long ago!
My other hesitation was the color of the mirror
and my friend Kim of Savvy Southern Style reminded me that it really was a neutral color.
There is not an abundance of wall space here in our temporary home, the Berry Patch House,
so I took down another mirror that I had in the little hallway
that leads to the Master Bedroom, so I can admire it now, rather than it be placed
into the “storage abyss”
The scale is a little off in this tiny area; however, I will gladly live with that for now,
until this beauty lands over one of the mantels in the new house….
or in another place of honor.
My posts have been off and on since we have been in the Berry Patch house.
We have been busy making some final decisions on things for the house wanting
everything to be “ready to go” when the time comes for each phase.
The foundation has been poured and waiting for inspection.
You can see that there are many more large rocks to outright boulders that are surfacing.
I can truly open a “rock shop”!!!
I wish you all a most beautiful day!!
P.S. Come back and visit me and my Monday Morning Blooms friends
