Don't you love Spring? I think it is the loveliest Season of all. It's a time of anticipation and revelation. It's also a time to finish up a few projects and rearrange a few items in the house. In remodeling our kitchen, we covered up a doorway where our new kitchen range is now. There had been a door that led to a small hallway. Now it looks like this photo below. It's a solid wall that I have put a mirror on and it's where I can fix my hair.
I also changed my antique sideboard up a little. I added the "spring" letters and sat an old bottle on it. I purchased the bottle yesterday at an Antique shop in Oakbank, MB. The words on the bottle say "Burdock Blood Bitters", one side of it reads, "Toronto, Ont.". The other side reads "The T. Milburn Co. Ltd." The dealer told us that it was from about 1925. I love old vintagey bottles, don't you?
I have found two wonderful Canadian blogs that you may not have found yet. Firstly, Canadian Cottage is written by a young woman who, along with her husband, has created a sweet little cottage that has loads of eye candy in it. She is currently blogging about the changes they have made in their master bedroom.
The next one is written by a woman who takes mundane articles and adds lots of "bling" to them. I found her lovely articles when I was last shopping in Langley, where I lived for 12 years, before moving to Manitoba. Her blog, JunkDreams is also full of great eye candy. I hope you will check them out, if you like cottage decor, you will like these!
I hope your Monday is full of all the good things that life has to offer you!
One last look at my new arrangement in the hallway. The bedrooms, bathroom and closet all lead off of this hall.
Cords, how on earth do you disguise them? They are so unsightly.
I am a wife, grandmother, mother, friend and sister, but most importantly, I am a child of God. Jesus is my Lord and my King, the very centre of my life. My husband pastors a church in our beautiful city and I am blessed to be and enjoy being his helper in this.
I am American by birth and Canadian by choice. I make my home with my husband in Manitoba, Canada.
