wall update

I hope everyone is having a great start to the weekend. I loved the opening ceremony for the Olympics last night. It is so amazing what they are able to do with the new technology,and it is the one time that I wished I had a large screen HDTV. But, as I am not a big TV watcher it isn't on my list of wants.

I have been trying to fit in a little decorating this week while also trying to find some new streams of income. Something did pop up out of the blue a couple of days ago. I'll share that with you next week and let you know how it is going. 

You may have noticed that I also did a little redecorating on my blog. I wanted it to be lighter and simpler. I think I am happy with it (at least for awhile). What do you think?

Now on to the wall update. 

You may remember my old window frame from here.


I hung it on the wall with a few embellishments.


I've since decided to tweak it a bit,


and to start adding some other things to the wall.


I found the old window screen at a Habitat for Humanity shop when I was living in North Carolina. It was 50 cents. I loved that shop. The one we have here is just too expensive to find any real bargains. 

The Bridge St. sign is actually for sale in my shop. As a dealer, things are always being traded in and out of my house, so this will be replaced once I find a buyer.


I'm sure I will probably add more  at some point, but for now I am going to leave it like it is.


I'll be watching the Olympics this afternoon while I work. Uh oh, I just heard a loud crash in the kitchen. SIGH!!!!

Clean up on aisle one.

  1. I thought it was the best opening ceremonies ever, also. (and yeah, I have that large HD TV. LOL)

  3. Oh how I love the collage. Nothing better to me than an old window, burlap and and old tin sign. I have been working on a book of my blogs so I haven't watched any of the Olympics and Winter is my favorite.

  6. Oh my, what fell? Hope it survived. Like minds think alike, I adore decorating with screens and windows-looks perfect to me. I Tvod the Olympics Opening ceremony and watched it this morning. I too really enjoyed it, a favorite of mine was the gorgeous costumes of the Szar period in Russia. Have a good weekend.

  8. Happy Saturday, Laura!
    I thought the opening ceremonies was amazing as well. They definitely brought the best of talent and technology to the event. Always...the music of Tschaikovsky is mesmerizing.

    I love how your wall turned out! I have a feeling that the sign will not be around long!
    Enjoy your afternoon.

  10. I loved the Opening Ceremonies! In fact,that's what I blogged about today!

    But I super love your new wall arrangement -- it all looks great together! Wish we had a Habitat for Humanity resale shop here -- I would gladly shop at it! I didn't know they even had shops! Your new blog design looks great too!
    Uh-oh... crashes in the kitchen are never good :p

  11. I love blue and birdies so, I am very much liking your header. I like what you do with your vintage treasures. So nice and simplistic!

  12. I was babysitting last night. I put the 3 year old in bed and told the three year old we would watch the Olympics. He covered his head and fell sound asleep. I liked it all except the history part. I never do like those. The little girl was up so high. What a brave one. I love the frame. I have something similar that I need to do something like that with it. Have you signed up for my giveaway.
