~what came home with me~

Hello everyone!!!


I've been a little swamped lately
but managed to sneak a few pics of
what came home with me......


you know how it works when you
"all of the sudden" can't stand a certain item
in your home????

well, that struck me about 2-3 months ago
with our light fixture over the kitchen table....
.....it had to go....
so the hunt began....at Monticello....

and this is what I came home with.
I bought it from the girls at Worthy Goods
they are just the sweetest & soooo talented!


I quickly cut down my other chandy 
{if you can call it that....}
and cranked out a cover for the chain~
in cream linen.....wired it up & hung it
while Mr. T & T was out! :0
{my favorite time to get into mischief.....}


here's another shot with the lights on....
the chandy is creamy white chippy iron
whaddaya think?


well, while we're in the kitchen, I thought I'd show
you a couple other things....but don't look too close
cuz I wasn't planning on a photo shoot~ just as is
on a Wednesday morning....

I got this little sign in a shop near home.
I thought it was kinda cute, no?
it will get replaced when we install
our new hood & range but for now I like it!


my kitchen really looks so much more ORANGE in
pictures than in person.....just know it's not quite
this bright/orangey....kind of a warm faded
terra cotta.


As you know, I'm going to be painting soon ~ just
not top of the list!

we attached these corbels
 last weekend in the
doorway that goes into the dining room
& living room


there you can see my hutch w/ my cute little
birdcage I picked up at Monticello as well.
I bought it from Kathleen at Faded Charm
you know "White Wednesday's" Kathleen?
her booth is as adorable as her blog!

She's so fun & we are so lucky to get to meet
up at these fantastic sales!


I have a thing for birdcages.....
so once I got it home I was like, where am I
going to put this???  So did a little rearranging
and this is what I came up with!


remember......not to look too closely inside
the hutch!!!  no peeking!! ;)
It's not that pretty right now.....needs some serious
organizing along w/ the rest of my closets & cabinets!


and then I got this cute little ottoman....now
you would think I would just make one up for myself...............apparently not!  :)
it was just too tempting all ruffly & cute


it's a cute little guy is it not?
I thought so & a great price so worth it
to not have to go out & find an old ottoman
and make the cover!

it goes well with the rest of my whites & creams
in the living room~


well I think that's most of it.....

I did pick up the rolling cart soon to be island,
but no pics yet ~ it needs some work
AND........................

OH!         MY !          HEAVENS!..........

TRAGEDY has struck!!!

ikea is OUT of butcher block counters!!!!!!!!!!

and not just our ikea....

ALL IKEAS!

this was my major perfect plan
for the island.....a $59 butcher block
counter from ikea.....she said they're out
till AT LEAST June. :(

Plan B.

don't know what that is but I'm working on it!


Anyway,

I hope you all are having a fabulous week!

Thanks for coming by today!




xoxox,




Shellagh

Lovely chandy and home! I am hoping to go to Ikea for the FIRST TIME EVER this weekend. :)
Blessings~

Shannon said...

Great finds! Your kitchen looks amazing

Linden Townhouse said...

What pretty finds! I can't believe you hung that lovely chandy by yourself. I would be so afraid I would burn the house down! What's the deal with IKEA and the butcher block counters? How could they run low? Maybe they are having trouble with their supplier, but surely they must know that the DIY people want those butcher block counters.

Hi Shellagh,
I am in love with all of the treasures that you brought back, the chandie looks fabulous!! What a bummer about the butcher block counter tops, that is my luck as well, when I'm dying for something, they run out. Maybe they'll re-stock sooner, we can keep our fingers crossed! :)
Have a lovely day.
Sincerely,
Melinda

I am on the look out for some new lighting for my house! I have 14 chandeliers with prisms and I am sick of them. Looking for some a little more modern, I think, not sure yet!

Love your new chandelier! Looks great!

Your home is lovely, Shellagh! And I love that new chandy! Yesterday was my first time visiting your blog. Saw that you were from Vancouver and that you raved about Monticello Antiques, so I googled them. Long story short, since i live west of Portland, I went there and spent the entire afternoon! What fun! Brought home a few treasures, too.
