On my mind... another project

On the day we signed the contracts for the house I ordered this print from the lovely Heather at Senter Studios.

I'd been admiring her work for some time and was waiting til we found "the one" to place my order so I didn't jinx the search. I can't tell you how excited I was to receive it in the mail and have it framed ready for moving day.

Seeing it as I walk through the front door everyday continues to make me smile and reminds me how lucky I am to have found such a wonderful home for my family.

The small table it sits on is handed down from my parents home. I know there are a lot of people out there who want to paint everything gloss white, but I love it just the way it is.

What I do want to spruce up is the hat stand I've paired with it to create a "landing strip" - a place to collect all the mail, jackets, hats, handbags, etc.. that used to inhabit our dining table.

I think black is the best way to go, but wondered if anyone had another suggestion?

I'd also like to get rid of the striped wall, but I promised The Man some time off from painting after all the work we did on our old house.

Great idea to have a landing strip. We have on by default ;)

LOVE your black rotary phone - have been wanting one similar.

Can't wait to see more - thanks for sharing!
