More Randomness

I went and got that fabric for my sunroom on Saturday. I just knew they weren’t going to have enough on the bolt ~ and they didn’t.  Let’s hope I figured high on the yardage, but I did ask if they will get more in.  The associate said yes, so fingers crossed she wasn’t fibbin’.

At the check out, I saw these little LED votive candle lights.

For $3.99 for two, I figured they were worth a shot.  You might remember that I put some battery powered white lights in my whites cabinet in the kitchen.  Well, I was getting tired of not being able to put them on because 1. the batteries don’t last long and 2. it seems like half these little strands were out.  I bought a set for each shelf.

I also got my greenery balls that I ordered on Etsy from WdWs Supply.   Great shop ~ in addition to these she also carries pillow forms and fabric.  I added the boxwood balls to my tote and changed that up a little.

I also picked up {when I was getting my fabric} a faux lilac bush.  I stuck it in my new tote.  I don’t know why I’m so taken with purple and lavender flowers this year.

And to counter the faux, I planted the three pink hydrangeas I had picked up at Lowe’s.

They seem to have a pinky purple thing going on.  Once I know they are settled and healthy in their new homes I will cut some of the flowers to bring inside.  This grouping on top is just calling out to be cut!

Okay, back to fluffing the laundry room {and I don’t mean towels!}.  Hubby got my Ballard’s café shelves up for me and I’m setting out all my decorative accessories, hanging things on the wall again and making things pretty.  Love the new wall color and I’ll show that to you soon.  I think it’s the only area of our new condo I haven’t shown you!

Like the lights and the hydrangeas will change colors depending on the amount of iron in your soil.

Oh hope the fabric is enough, it just drives me nuts to have to stretch. Love the candles and the boxwood balls, how pretty, plus of course I love the hydrangeas in the yard. Sure wish we could grow them here. Look forward to the laundry. Hugs, Marty

Kathy, Everything is looking so homey and beautiful! The candles look so pretty in the hutch. All the little decorative things you have going on are so pretty with the the wooden tote and the flowers in the fabric tote. Lilacs and Hydrangeas are my favorites! Have a wonderful weekend, ~ Jamie P.S. I LOVE that fabric. It's really stood out to me every time I've seen it at the store. :)

I love hydrangeas. We had them in our backyard put when we put the pool in we had to remove lots of trees and flowers etc . . . .

I hope you have a great weekend!!!

Ah Kathy!!!! I come here to be an adult. I can tell from your decorating that you are an elegant person by nature. A lovely person. One day perhaps our paths will cross. Until then, I will continue to learn and enjoy your decorating skills. E

Hi Kathy,
Your home is looking so lovely. I'm loving those same colors right now too and I'm always reminded of the book...."When I Get Old I Shall Wear Purple!" LOL!!!

I know what you mean. I have some of those battery operated candle lights but then I never turn them on for fear the batteries will run down....crazy! Love that fabric! Can't wait to see it up close. I bought fabric from Etsy and it came yesterday, so I am busy sewing away today. I have just enough fabric so I pray I make no mistakes. Hope you are having a fabulous weekend. xo

Kathy, your little wooden tote looks so sweet and fresh for summer. Just the touch, but a perfect touch. Thanks for introducing me to WdW's Supply on Etsy. I've been an avid Etsy shopper for the last three years and I'm continually amazed at all the fun shops I don't know about!

ℳartina @ Northern Nesting said...

So many pretty things!! I love the way those little votives look behind your glass cabinet and love the large candlestick with the topiary ball near your fireplace!

Karen said...

The fabric is pretty and those candles look so real! The lilacs look so nice in that cute tote. Good luck with your hydrangeas, they look great. I'm looking forward to your laundry room reveal. Mine needs some serious help too. I'm sure you will inspire me.

Ann from On Sutton Place said...

Thanks for the greenery ball link. I sure hope you have enough fabric...there is nothing worse than running out at the very end of a project. I've done it many times!

Sherry said...

Kathy adding the purple & lavender flowers to your tote was a lovely touch and the glow from the votive candle lights is so romantic!

Laura Ingalls Gunn said...

That fabric is amazing!

I hadn't thought of putting led votives in a hutch...I love it. Now I can use my cathedral sized collection even more. :)

At the 11th hour a miracle has happened. I knew it would :) He is ever faithful. Details will follow soon. Thank you for your constant friendship.
