What's new, at home!

Progress in my small humble abode has been slow but steady. Kitchen was finished with cup pulls replacing old hardware, sometime in December. At this point I rest as I think any other little improvements I want to make are going to be some weekend project for later on.  

So now that Christmas decor is down, color and hints of Valentine inspired pretties are coming out. The mini winter tree was a Christmas clearance that I snatched at Target store then hung crochet hearts I found by the bag at Micheal's arts and crafts. 

Shelf is now showing pretty floral china, mugs, red kitchen accessories and other pretty finds. And I have to say, I am getting into gingham again. I have been included pops of it here and there. 

Something new (for me) came into my dining room this weekend after getting rid of a computer and desk that sat in the corner. I found the small vitrine at the antiques store. And after painting inside- behind the glass doors and giving it a good cleaning I filled it up with linens and other pretty things. I really love this piece of furniture. I have small rooms and low ceilings and this vitrine is small but great storage and love the showcasing top. 

Herbal fragrance fills the room after I got done with this simple rosemary heart wreath Now hanging on my china and pottery hutch. 

So this is what has been going on around here lately. Besides entertaining kids at home when school closes for cold weather. I hope you are all staying warm and have a great week ahead!

Ciao, ciao
