Around The House, A Review & A Giveaway

This Giveaway has ended.

It took me a little while but I finally figured out where to put the plates that I had in the living room at my old house.


There’s not much wall space here, so much of my wall d├ęcor is just sitting on the side.  I’ll see if my daughter wants some of it, otherwise it’s going to Goodwill.


There is more wall on this side of the window than the other, because of the fireplace. 


I finally found the rest of my lamps and the harps to them, so I was able to finish up my Frenchy dresser corner.  Night shot.


Daytime shot.  I’m trying out the brown and white transferware cups and saucers I just recently purchased from Nancy at Nancy’s Daily Dish here.  I need two more to fill this stand.


And, I’m liking that print I got from Hobby Lobby more and more as I live with it.  I went out and got the frame and an OOK kit to hang it up. 


So we’ll give it a go with this frame and see how it looks.  I had a great idea of what to add to the sides and I’m hoping to find “them” this week.  Hopefully, that will turn out as I’m imagining!


Now, onto the review.  A couple of weeks ago, I was contacted by Easy Canvas Prints about reviewing a wrapped canvas.  Of course, as a first time grandmother, I jumped at the chance to send in a picture of my little cutie!  I got an 11 x 14 wrapped canvas that I’m giving to my daughter as a gift. 


The ordering process was super easy and I got it quickly, too.  The canvas itself is beautiful!  The picture quality is amazing and I would highly recommend using Easy Canvas Prints, if you are thinking about getting a photo on canvas.  This would make such a great gift idea, especially with the holidays on the way.


They offer a variety of sizes, so there is one for every budget.  What grandparent wouldn’t love one of their grandchildren?  How about that family portrait you’ve been putting off?

Easy Canvas Prints has kindly sent me some gift cards that I am going to share with you, so you can get your own photo on canvas!  There will be two winners; each will receive $50.00 in gift cards to Easy Canvas Prints.  To enter this giveaway, just leave me a comment letting me know what you might choose for your canvas.   If you do not have a blog, you must leave me an email address for contact.

This Giveaway has ended.

Looking good Kathy. I like the stand you have for the teacups!!

It all looks great, Kathy. Really coming together. I just love that dresser with the basket "drawers". I love my Canvas Print I did. They are a great company to deal with. I highly recommend them. I would love a GC to be able to create another work of art. ;o)

Hey, Kathy! Your new home is really coming together beautifully! Of course we all knew it would! :) Love the little Frenchy dresser corner. That dresser is one of my favorites. Love those baskets!
Thanks for a chance at the giveaway!

Your living room looks very pulled together with the black and white accents! I love the dresser in that corner and how you have it accessorized. The baskets look so cute!

I like the painting a lot. I have such a hard time deciding on artwork! I usually just move the same stuff around!!

What a great the picture of your precious little guy! I'd love to frame something beachy for the lakehouse. Count me in!

Have a great weekend, Kathy!

Hi there. I had to comment on your living room. I really love it, the plates are so cute!!

Nancy's Daily Dish said...

Kathy, I LOVE your drapes! They caught my eye right away! I think everything you've done is looking so nice. THat dresser with the baskets is still one of my favorite furniture re-dos and THANK YOU for mentioning me in regards to the teacups. Don't you love those stands? I had a whole bunch of them when I had my shop and I kept several of them for use here and displays.

I gotta say, that baby steals the show though!


bellefleur said...

The room looks beautiful, and I love those plates. Did you try putting them under the arched window? Might make a great 'connection' between the two windows. You have some lovely things!

LOve all the black and white! Thanks for the chance to win.

Hugbuggal said...

We are renting a house right now and right before we moved in, the owner painted our guest bathroom a very bright shade of navel orange! For the life of me, I couldn't think how to decorate it until I saw one of the pictures I took this summer while my kids were swimming in the backyard - a simple shot of a lone yellow rubber ducky on the edge of their bright blue and white swimming pool - I think it would be stunning as a canvas print hanging against that sea of bright orange! :D

Pamela said...
