Ok, I admit, when it comes to redecorating, rearranging a shelf of books is a pretty bold move for me. When you start talking about painting and moving furniture, I'll be looking for a medal at the end of the project.
So, you may not think my mermaid redo of my bathroom qualifies as redecorating- but I'll still show you what I did.
I probably don't deserve a medal for my redecorating hanging pictures, but I would like a gold star.
The butter pats are Meakin ironstone; the silver is quad plate- I love the etching; the books are a history of Opera and a history of composers- I bought them because they go with the red and blue cowboy boots I got a few weeks back; the bottle with a stopper came from a priest's estate and still had some liquid in it- I spilled it on some other books I bought- it was probably holy water, but not very lucky water.
This was probably my best buy- a boxful of yarn shop yarn for only $6- some yarns still had the labels, and most of them would have been at least $6 for a single skein...and knitting a nice warm cuddly scarf is good way to pass a 90+ degree July day.
