bit of a wall update

You may remember that I updated a space on my wall last winter. I shared it here. I was pretty happy with it, 


but, I sold the sign. Hooray, I love when I sell things, but that meant there was a vacant place that needed to be filled. I had this great white star made from tobacco sticks hanging over my bed. 


but, (lots of buts happening) I didn't have anything else I wanted to replace it with. Then I found something I loved at an auction, which I'll share at another time. 

So, up went the star over the old screen.


I kept the old window arrangement that I had originally,


but (there's another but) then I found something last week at the auction that I fell in love with. I originally planned to sell it, but I decided I didn't want to part with it for now.


It's a beautiful vintage organza and lace christening gown with a satin slip. I love it with the primitive window frame and antique wedding photo. 
 
So now I have an update to the wall, that I'm happy with for now.


Now all I have to do is find the energy for the rest of the room.

  1. Laura, That looks very good. I am the type that once I find a placement I hate to change it... I do not know why. You can make those stars with tree branches ans twine too. Blessings, xoxo,Susie

    1. Thanks, Susie. I'm always changing things around, and because I sell a lot of the things in my home I have to replace them. I've seen the stars made from branches. I love the rustic look of them :)

  2. That's pretty. I have the same problem - I buy stuff and think I'll sell it and then end up keeping it. What is wrong with me?

    1. I try not to beat myself up about it. A lot of the time I will eventually end up selling it, but if I didn't spend a lot for it then I just enjoy it. There is nothing wrong with enjoying things for yourself, Kim. :)

  5. That's such a pretty wall arrangement! Loved the street sign that you sold. I have that same wooden star too. It's in storage right now, but I will probably bring it out again in the future.

    1. My younger sister tries to steal that star from me when she comes to visit from Arizona. I have to keep an eye on her sticky fingers. LOL!

  8. I got more in the mood this morning when I went out for my walk and it was chilly. I guess the change of seasons is inevitable :)
