more painting

Happy Sunday everyone ~

I want to thank you for all of your lovely comments about my new living room.  Mr. Vintage thought it was quite "white", but one night last week he was sitting in the living room and said "You know, the living room is very calming."  Just the effect I wanted ;-)  success~!

Well, you know, one thing leads to another and the next thing I knew I was painting the upstairs hallway ~

I painted my little table duck egg and I love it.  You can see Chico in the left corner peaking out at me ~

Even Mr. Vintage's little ceramic deer head looks great in the hallway (It was his great grandfather's).

I changed out my fireplace screen with this little cast iron plant holder.  I bought this at an antique show years ago.  It's from Holland and being that my mother was dutch, I could not pass it up.

I like the look ~

Well, now we are starting on the kitchen ~ whew ~ ambitious aren't we?  I will be back soon to show you when we are finished.  We are patching holes today.

In the meantime, 

I whipped up a batch of oatmeal apple muffins (in my spare time ~ ha ha), 

I made them for Mr. Vintage, he has been patching all of the holes that I had in the wall from my pictures and pretties ~ he is such a good sport.

What have you been up to?

Can't wait to hear~!




  1. Haven't been up to much today. Had my coffee and reading blogs.

  2. It is amazing how small things can make big impacts. Looking forward to your kitchen fixes :)

  3. Well now haven't you both been busy lol ! All looks very lovely . Oh those muffins look and sound YUMMY ! May we have the recipe please ? Thanks for sharing . Have a good week !

  4. New paint makes everything so clean and pretty. And I like to make my hubby cinnamon rolls when he does lots of honey dos! I've been sewing! I'll show a few more things tomorrow! Sweet hugs!

  5. I guess winter is a good time to paint up there. So glad it is just what you want.
    Those muffins look yummy and that plate is divine!
    Happy sprucing!

  6. A woman's work is never done! Or her husband! I love the white planter holder you found. Of course cause I'm Dutch as well. Looks great in the fireplace.
    Blessings, Diane

  7. Painting is a quick and cheap way to give an old room a breath of fresh air or to make your house more sell able if you are putting it on the market.
