Sneak Peek

Hi Everyone.  Happy Friday and Happy Weekend.

I thought I would show you a little peek into the new living room at JCC#4 by showing you the pretty drapes. 

Let me share with you the lovely and talented lady on Etsy that made my drapery panels.  

Her name is Shana Asmus and 
her Etsy is called Asmus Home Interiors.  

If you click Here  or on her site name above it will take you right to her Etsy Shop.  

I did not receive any compensation for this just like to share wonderful and talented women I meet that have done beautiful work for me.

My walls are in Behr Pixel White.  It is one of the million whites you can choose. 
It is white with a touch of gray. 
We painted all the trim in Ultra White.

I have to admit that this neutral girl is enjoying bringing in pattern and blue to my whites!

This is the pattern of the fabric.
I bought what Shana said she needed to make the panels and had the fabric sent right to her. 
Saved on shipping.
Shana then made these pretty curtain panels.  Shana does a beautiful job.
Seriously if you need drapes, pillows, shower curtain, etc. visit her Etsy site
You can send her your own fabric or pick from the many beautiful fabrics she has in stock.

There is my little peek into the new living room.

I like the cottage feel these drapes give to the living room. 
I am taking baby steps with adding color to my neutral world. 
So far so good!
 I am embracing touches of the blue.

I am still waiting on a few things to finish up this room. 
Then I will have the full reveal.

Don't you hate waiting for things to arrive that you have ordered? 
I tell ya I have no patience for waiting!

Happy Friday and have a wonderful Weekend.

Fresh Cut Flowers

Happy Wednesday Everyone.  

Hope your week is going great.

I wanted to give a shout out to a wonderful and creative lady that makes these cute stamped books.
I found her through another blogger friend that lead me to her on instagram.

 You can find Jamie's books on instagram  

I will let you all scroll down to see some samples of her beautiful books and styling.
Jamie's books are so cute and she styles them beautifully.

Here is the books I chose for my home and also a set to gift to a friend that also loves flowers.

Here is the set she sent to me.  I have them styled right now on my coffee table.  

My curtains for the new living room have arrived and I am waiting on a few more things and then I should have the living room reveal to show all of you.

I am embracing adding blue to my whites. 

Thank you Jamie for my beautiful books and thank you for letting me highlight your wonderful and creative soul here on my blog.

Have a great week.

Pantry and Farmhouse Window

Happy Sunday sweet friends.

We got the new pantry finished up and now I can start to unpack all the pantry stuff!  Happy Dance!
This is how this old German armoire looked when I bought it on Offer Up.

Terry re worked it into the space at the back of the kitchen to make a pantry/coat closet.

This is how it looked after he got everything to fit in place. 
Adding some crown molding to finish the top.

New pantry painted white.

Added shelves for storage.

There is now a coat hanger.  When you live in small spaces you have to use every inch of space available. 
I wish we did not have to have a coat closet but in Illinois we get this thing called winter and it is cold! 
So coats are a must!!!

Found a place to hang up keys.

I finally found a place to hang my old farmhouse window in the living room entry. 
I wanted to hang it over my loveseat on the living room wall. 
The window was too tall. 
 I am glad it would fit inside this window.

I am working on getting the living room together.  I just got my new drapes and they look so pretty.  The blue and white floral pattern is gorgeous. 
I cannot wait to show you.

 Finishing touches now on each room. 
Getting the kitchen finished, our bedroom and living room.

We just finished painting the office area.  Finally all the painting inside this house is done!!!!

Now it is just getting my decorating going and finishing up little things.

Have a great week ahead.
Love your Creativity #5 Link Party
