We received the runner in the mail for the front hallway. I have to admit I was a bit scared of ordering from Overstock.com. But I am thoroughly impressed. It is a ten foot long 100% wool runner that was very reasonable priced. I will definitely be ordering from them again. It also got here in four days!
Plants are finally in the urns that flank the garage. The planters are hung on the porch. More flowers are in the rusty little cart in the front yard.
I saw some grapevine balls at Target. I do love my grapevine lights, so I thought I might be able to work with something like that. But Target only had a handful of small ones. When I was in the candle section, I noticed a mongo box of some scented potpourri with grapevine balls and all kinds of dried pods. True, it was sandalwood scented. But how long can that scent last? That stuff never lasts....so I went ahead and got a box. Heck, I'll get two, just in case I want to go a little crazy.
Want a closer look? The little balls are hung onto these little rings I found at Walmart of all places (in the jewelry section). I was looking for a ball of jute when I saw them. I originally wanted to use the little clips like they did. But I couldn't find any in the same finish as the rod. I have had this curtain rod since we lived in KS. With the Fragrant Clove color on the walls, I knew these would be perfect.
***edited to add: this bathroom is a very dark pumpkin orange color...for the life of me, I could not get it with the camera. There are those florescent energy saving light bulbs in there, so it really distorts the color on the camera. ***
We are in the final stages of finishing the house: the little things like flowers, candles, etc... The dining room furniture is ordered. It should be here in two-three weeks. Whew hoo!
Happy weekend, y'all!
