Go To Your Corner!

Ok...I'd be happy to go sit in the corner...especially when it is this corner!  teehee  Yep, you spotted the mantle that I got for a whopping $0!!!  After getting a good coat of spray paint, it found a good home here in my little corner.

I have been trying to decide what I wanted to do in this area for a while.  It's a quiet place for reading a book, poring over decorating magazines, grading papers, listening to someone play the piano {since I don't},or just daydreaming.


A few other treasures got a makeover with the same ivory spray paint.

I think it's the perfect place to hold my sweet grandbaby and read books together.  She even has her own little chair that she loves to sit in!

Great vintage alarm clocks find a home atop a wonderful glass-topped clock table.  None of them work, but I think that could be a good thing...you know...time standing still...no place to be...just sitting here daydreaming!  Ahhhhh

There are so many possible backdrops in this room to "showcase" seasonal/holdiay decorations.

Happy Birthday, America...
and Happy 4th of July, everyone!

Today, I'm linking to:


Now, I think my corner is calling to me..."Come and sit a spell" it seems to say.  "Ok!" I reply.  "I think I'll do just that!"
Stay Safe and Enjoy, Everyone!
Waving from Our Back Porch,
