We Should Call It The Ivy House

It’s no secret, I love English Ivy.

I have always admired the beautiful cottages in the English countryside

that have many ivy covered walls.

So if I cannot have that ivy covered wall, I am settling for English Ivy in the house.

My hubby looked around the other day, and stated,

“with all the ivy plants you have around the house, we should call it The Ivy House” . . . funny guy!

Vintage Brackets and Tole Sconces

When shopping in Pennsylvania with the lovely Yvonne of StoneGable last week, 

we spent lots of time in a booth with great architectural pieces.

Some were repurposed, some in their original state, their original beauty.

Yvonne picked up a pair of brackets, then at the last minute

she decided to purchase a different set of brackets;

therefore, her brackets went into my “buy bin.”

I was not exactly certain of what I was going to do with them; however, for now

they found a home in the dining room.
