Some Shots Around the House

It's been some time since I've shared pictures but it doesn't mean I haven't been constantly changing things around. When you live in a space that is as small as mine(464 sq. ft.) you have to switch things out from time to time to keep your sanity =)
Here are a few pictures of recent changes
Have a GREAT day ALL and Thank You for visiting! Audrey

It's always such a treat to see pictures of your home. That bed cover has really caught my attention - did you make it? I think it's just a runner across the foot of the bed, am I right? I'm thinking I could do something similar with an old army blanket for the foundation - now my brain is working.....

I remember you had a wonderful collection of stocking and glove stretchers - do you still have them? Would love to see them again - maybe I'll have to look at old photos?

You have one of the most artistic senses of style that I've ever encountered Audrey. Oh how I would love to "borrow" just for a week or so to work your magic in a room or two of my home. And no one would ever imagine your space is small... it is huge in charm and gorgeousness. Smiles & Hugs ~ Robin

Thank you ladies for all of your lovely comments!

Gayle, I made the bed cover using Rebekah L. Smith's design.
It was taken from her "Wool Applique" folk art book.
I just added a few more rows to make mine longer and yes, I still have my collection of glove stretchers but only a few of the stocking forms.
I will see about taking a picture of the glove stretchers for another post.

No nice to have you all come visit my blog! Audrey

I keep coming back to view your lovely home. I forgot to ask earlier about the candles. Looking on the internet and seeing Judy Condon's and others I think even with remotes and times I wanted to ask if you like them, how they look at night (a lovely soft yellow light? or blue bright?), and if you have found a difference in the quality purchasing them all from one source or several. My home is not primitive because my husband is not as big an admirer as I am but I am working on slowly adding this style and do not have a local source in my area. Thank you so much for inspiring me!

Karen, I have never used the candles that have timers. All of the candles you see in my photos are the 6-1/2 inch or 4-1/2 inch battery operated candles. The 6-1/2 inch takes 2 batteries and they are my favorite because I can keep them on 24/7 for over a month until the soft yellow glow dies out. The 4-1/2 inch candles take 1 battery but only last for two days before the glow has died. (not my favorite)
I purchased them on Ebay years ago. I hope you find the candles that are just right for you and Thank You again for visiting!

Wow Its just so beautiful The wool bed covering is outstanding Cant believe 464 square feet Thank you for sharing

Karen said...

Thank you Ms. Bayrayschild! This helps me to see that I will like the light. I am not an admirer of the blue bright light as others may be but prefer the more realistic soft yellow glow of light from a candle or fireplace. Now I know I would like them and to you I say thank you! Since the batteries in the 6 1/2 inch last longer then I will purchase that size as I can hardly keep up with my job and home and grandchildren! Ha! My 103 year old grandfather said growing old is not for wimps before he died! I feel my age! Peace to you and yours.

Oh my!!!!! ♥
Seriously Audrey, you need to do interior decorating for a living. Heck, you need your own show on HGTV!!
I am totally smitten with that print of the cows. Perfect!

Karen said...

I finally bought a 6 inch candle and really like it. Judy Condon sells them with timers so I would like to get that as I have pets and do not want to risk a fire. I am going to order a sample of the Farrow and Ball elephant grey. I have always been an admirer of elephants so the name intrigues me. Did you use Farrow and Ball for your walls too? There is no place locally to buy it so I would have to have it shipped. I so look forward to your posts!

Hello Karen,
I used the Olympic brand of elephant grey paint.

Glad you like the candle! They are so much safer than the real thing!

Enjoy!
Audrey
