Colors and Purchases

  I thought I'd show some of the items I bought for my home Last and This year..

 I've had a lot of other things come along to interrupt my decorating:)   like acting as executor for a will--NOT-- a fun experience I can tell ya..  Before I could get that done I landed in the ICU ward at the hospital for almost a week.  
  I am grateful to have those issues behind me and the décor is coming along nicely. 

   Here are the colors I've chosen to use here.
 So far a couple pots of African violets are supplying the purple tones but I plan to add more in napkins -pillows and a throw.
I had to purchase some furniture cause ya'll know how it is--New Place/New Stuff , giggle.
These items all got 4 and 5 star reviews and they are quite accurate.
Its always hard to know if you can trust site reviews , which is why I thought I'd add my own here for ya..
Helps to know a real person has the item and how it functions in everyday use..
I couldn't be happier with the sofa I got from Joss&Main.  Its a bit harder than some folks like but that just got it an extra Star from me as its best for my back . Too soft seats leave me in serious pain..
 The fabric is good quality and its truly White, which was a Must Have for me. The nail head trim was an added bonus for looks purposes:) 
YES--I would most certainly buy it again and its now on sale and still available.
This is the chair my daughter choose for her side of the great room.  It also has a matching ottoman.
 Comfortable and has a high back so she can rest her neck and she's 5'9"... Its usually more difficult to find a chair that suits her needs but this one really fit the bill.. Its a very, very pale beige/more like an Off White.
Its isn't available but you can add" get a notice" and they'll let you know when its back in stock.
My chair and ottoman.. I am in LOVE with it, in every way.. Its also a bit stiff but that suits my sitting needs perfectly. I sprayed it lightly with scotchgaurd and I can wipe anything I spill , right off:)
Yes folks- I am a Spiller~!   :) 

 These are miscellaneous items I'll be using when I decorate for fall this year. As you can tell I'll be sticking with my usual color theme- apple green and white. I have used those colors for 5 years now during the fall season and I'm still loving it.

The wall hanging will go on the wall between the kitchen and great room.

The wreath with hang on the plantation shutters that close off the kitchen from the great room.

 The plantation shutters on the bar area was one of the best ideas in this home. I can see thru when the louvers are open OR close them and totally separate the 2 rooms.
The bowl of hydrangeas and pumpkins will sit on the fireplace mantle with some of my sweater pumpkins and candle lanterns.


as you can see this cabinet got 22 , 5 star reviews on the Wayfair site.. I am here to tell you 5 stars aren't enough ~!
My rating is most defiantly a 10..
Its quality is excellent.. Made of solid wood, its very sturdy. The drawer glides are smooth as buttah:)
The folks at American Woodscrafters may not be the most economical but this piece will LAST and probably survive me and whoever I leave it to in my will , lol..
 This is a REAL piece of furniture and I am in love with it.
Just the right height for comfortable tv viewing and the amount of storage is impressive.
I hope my personal reviews will help those of you who might be looking for new furniture or décor items.. I was NOT compensated in any way whatsoever, these are my TRUE OPINIONS.

  1. I love the faux green pumpkin and hydrangea arrangement. Was it pricey?

  2. Everything is so lovely. You are definitely a born decorator.

  3. Hi Sonny! Oh, I love your new furniture! I'm so glad you found exactly what you wanted and that it was such good quality! Now I want to see it all in your home! :) I know you've been through a lot and it's good to see you back.
    Be a sweetie,
    Shelia ;)

  4. Hi Sonny,

    These are beautiful items and furniture you've purchased for your new home! I love the look of the furniture, and I really like your paint colors, too. So nice to have everything brand new! I hope things will go better for you now; thanks so much for your visit and have a great day!



  5. Wow, you got some great furniture pieces, Sonny, and I love the decorative pieces as well. I hope you will share when you have them set up and in place.

  6. Sonny- oh my word, your room is going to be fabulous - every item gets a huge thumbs up from this nest! Thanks for your reviews too- I lost trust in reviews a while ago on some of those sites as time and time again I found the quality craftmanship and/or materials were so inferior. I appreciate (and am so happy) knowing you are pleased!

    As for executor, hospital, etc. - you take care, my friend. Stress is a very bad thing. Saying some prayers for your good health and well being. Hugs.


Ya'll Come Back Now, Ya Hear :-)
Hugs and Smiles
