 Simple Pleasures #

For me, nothing defines a space more than what you hang on your walls.

Recently I shared how I updated the hanging shelf in my bedroom.

Since then I have been adding to the other wall spaces in my bedroom.

(My bedroom is very dark so I apologize for the quality of these photos.)

Today I thought I would share more of that wall.

This is the space above my bed.

In the center is a signed original oil painting that I purchased several years ago from an estate sale in Kentucky.

It is based on an oil painting titled "Whistling Boy" by Duveneck.

I believe that it may have been done by one of his students. 

I paid $10 for it and it is definitely one of my best purchases.

It is surrounded by four framed vintage butterfly prints that belonged to my mom.

Since people often ask me how I have decorated my home on a budget I plan to share more of my finds in the near future.

As we move into fall we look forward to the coziness of a new season.

Gluten-Free Blueberry Banana Muffins

Hot tea and muffins are definitely favorites of mine when cooler weather rolls around.

Whether first thing in the morning or mid-afternoon they are a perfect combination. 

I am always looking for new ways to use my overly ripe bananas and these muffins are a very tasty way to do just that.

These muffins contain very little fat, so they don't even have to be a guilty pleasure.

You can find the recipe here.

What I Am Watching

Have you watched Abbott Elementary?

Of my goodness, I don't think I have ever laughed so hard.

Abbott Elementary

I am currently catching up on season one on Hulu because season two starts next week.

In a world where everything seems to be bad news, this will definitely brighten up your day.

Yesterday I got my Omicron booster. I am doing everything I can to avoid getting covid and to help stop its spread. I hope you will consider getting your booster too.

Thank you for your visit.

  1. Happy Friday Laura. I love the vignette over your bed. That painting is great and what a find. Love that you used your mom's butterfly pics around it. Have a good weekend. xoxo Kris

  2. HI Laura.... I love those butterfly prints! I think walls show alot of our personality too.. with photos and small prints, etc. Love those shackets! I got a couple last year and love them for the colder season.. and today where I live my house is COLD! which is so unusual.. I actually have long pants on for the first time in months! I'll have to try that Abbott Elementary. I need good laughs now and then. I watched some other show a couple of weeks ago that made me laugh out loud, and now I can't remember which one it was. Darn.. I wish I would have written it down! Have a good week! Marilyn

  3. I'm so far behind in my blog reading, but I do believe you wrote this piece for me! The one thing I haven't been able to find is art (or something!) for over our bed, or in my son's room, in Florida. So.... Thanks for all the links for wall decor! I've put Abbot Elementary on my list. We're getting our boosters on Thursday. It's kind of stunning how many people who've gotten all the boosters so far are telling me they're not sure about getting this one.
