Brrrr... it's cold outside! The windchill is -11 and the actual temperature is 2 degrees. Such weather has me dreaming of spring.
I should stay inside where it is warm and cozy but my Tookish side is taking me into town.
I used a little Christmas money to purchase the square vintage picnic basket (which is actually, I think, a cake-pie carrier). It was such a great price at my favorite antique mall, I had to look twice at the tag!
Love the way it looks on the two vintage baskets I already used to store magazines. Come warmer weather, I will place a live plant on top of the trio but it's too cold there now.
I know, I said I probably would not show anymore Christmas pictures but how can one not share such beauty?
I put the vintage child's rocker back in the family room where it took about five minutes for Victoria to re-claim it as her favorite place to watch squirrels, birds, and the neighbor's dog.
I've also been moving around items in the kitchen to make it look less cluttered and still have plenty of storage space. Pictures to follow... Stephanie (who was a kitchen designer) and I have agreed the perfect solution is built-in storage along the wall that has none... but barring an HGTV makeover... that is not happening.
So I do the second best and decorate by tweaking.
