The Realtor Open House was today
and I am glad to get that all behind me.
Do they have those in your area?
It's when all of the Realtors parade
through your home and give feedback
to the Realtor who has the listing.
They usually hold it when you first list the home
but it was so close to the holidays
that we decided to wait until January.
In order to get as many Realtors to attend
they usually serve food to entice them to show up.
I didn't have to do anything
but get the house ready.
I snapped a few photos of the
Kitchen Hearth Room
to show you.
You haven't seen the new rug,
sectional, and pillows all put together...
When I was at Home Goods buying the new rug
this cute pillow jumped into my cart.
Doesn't it just scream
"I want Spring to start!"?
I have a few pillows
that I need to sew
but I just haven't found time yet.
So this will have to do for now.
I love the new throw from Pottery Barn.
It's the perfect color!
And do you see the plates on the wall?
They were there before
but I added a few new ones
that I found at Mission Road Antique Mall.
They were in a cute booth
and they were only $10.00 for 7 plates.
They were made in Austria.
I like the soft pattern of the delicate flowers
in the greens and blues.
They are quiet little plates
that are barely a whisper of color from far away.
I set out my blue/green glass bottles
on the sofa back table
and a few Spring-ish pillows
on the French bench by the back doors.
went on the built in hutch.
I put some tea light candles in the votives
and placed them on a white decorative tray that I had.
My newly recovered chair
got a new pillow that I had in my stash.
The colors go perfectly with the rug.
It's like the rug was always there.
People that come over don't notice it
but they comment on how fresh
and pretty the room looks.
It's like when you get a really great haircut!
Your friends know something is different
but it's not such a big change, just a better look!
I'm just sitting here enjoying it all clean and perfect.
Because, I know pretty soon
all of the dog toys are going to be all over
and the throws and pillows will be everywhere,
people (and dogs) will make a mess
and clutter up my perfectness...
But that's OK, I would rather live happily
with all of the mess than be lonely in a perfect room!
Besides, I know that I contribute greatly to the chaos!
Until Next Time,
