A Few New Things!

Before leaving for Texas last month, I added a few things to my home!  The walls have been pretty bare but it's time to add some things and make it home.
I don't have coat closet in my duplex and I wanted somewhere to hang a few things as I came in the door.  This mirror with hooks was something I've had for years but never hung it.  
I really love it and hung my Eiffel Tower bag from Ballard Designs there!

This corner of the room is starting to come together.  My newest addition is this great clock!
I love the colors, textures and of course it says Paris!  This clock was bought on sale at World Markets online!  
A couple of the cubbies hold birds and egg cups!
I think I'll be changing them soon to 
Red, White & Blue! 

I am planning to get some prints of Paris printed soon and hung in the living room.  Just have to find the time.  Mom is living in her apt now and all her stuff is here.  Too much stuff and we are still unpacking and trying to figure out what to keep and what to donate.  I'm taking a break this weekend and watching Tiger while his Dad works and his Mom is visiting her sister in Cali!

Wishing you JOY,

Linda

Glad to hear you're back in GA Linda, I know it will take time to get your mom settled in. Gotta tell ya, my biggest smile came from the pic of Tiger between the cubbies! Enjoy your special weekend with him:@)

Everything looks great Linda! I like your mirror with hooks. That might be a good solution for me as well. I don't have a coat closet either. Love, love the new clock and can't wait to see the cubbies all styled for 4th of July! Have a blessed weekend with Tiger...:)

Hugs, Vicky

I love those little cubbies in your bookshelf. Good for you finding a place to hang coats and hats. I need to find a place for coats by the back door too.

That mirrored piece looks great and makes sense for the entry area. Love the Paris bag! I like that clock- nice aged look! That's cute and unique how you have the shelving unit set up with those cubbies. I bet it's been a fun weekend with Tiger!

It looks like you're finally going to be able to relax (I hope) and settle in to your new place. I love the clock and your cubbies filled with sweet birdies.

Your special corner is really looking great...and very comfortable. Bet you are glad to be able to finally enjoy being at home for more than a day or two. Hope you mother is settling in happily, too.
Have a wonderful week, Linda.
