It’s hard to believe that next week will be one month since we rolled into Franklin! It’s been a whirlwind month, but things are finally starting to calm down. More importantly, it’s starting to feel like home. The kitties are in love with the birds that come outside their window each day. Sophie is intrigued with the nightly dance of the fireflies. The weather has been really hot here, in the nineties every day! It’s taking this Washington girl a bit of time to get used to the heat. This morning I was mowing the lawn and it was 90 degrees out! Does that count as double points for a workout?! Here are a few photos of some areas that are starting to look like home…
This is my only true antique, my childhood dresser. It’s been in my family since it was made, around 1860. Donna “made” me buy the candelabra when she was here, doesn’t it look fabulous?!
A blessing for all who enter…and china, of course!
My favorite red velvet chair! Donna has the twin to this in her parlor. I think she’s going to paint hers white too.
I traded for this table when I had my shop…it looks great with that huge apothecary jar…just waiting for the cats to knock over!
Donna helped arrange this wall in my dining room when she was here! And she gave me that sweet iron bird plaque. Thank you, Donna!
Another arrangement by Donna, when I woke up one morning…tada! There it was, just like I had been visited by some decorating faeries! My collection of amber depression glass. I didn’t really like it that much before, but I think it looks great now!
A closer look. That cute little topiary ball came from a shop here in Franklin called Harmony Home. It was only $1.95!
My precious little Sophie napping in her new home…
Now I need to get back to work! God bless, Victoria Lynn
