Rose Dishes and Painting!

I wanted to show you all some dishes I hung above the mirror which is above my buffet, geesh, I had put my rose dishes away and I couldn't stand it anymore, I love them, what was I thinking!! Aaahhh much better now (;I also bought myself an early Christmas present, I can't wait to try this paint sprayer out but I haven't taken it out of the box yet I'm kind of intimidated, it hooks up to our air compresser, but I have to figure out how and where I'm going to use it, LOL! Wish me luck ...........Have a great weekend, we woke up to low 50's today!!

Jewels are great too but give me a power tool anyday!lol And btw I love the direction your home is taking! Still the feminine shabby chic/cottage but with a fresh twist by adding the darker woods too! LOVE IT LOVE IT! Plates are a favorite of mine too! Thanks again, Sincerely - Jeannette

That is so funny that we both did rose dishes today!!! We always seem to think alike! I've been wanting a spray painter too but I'm not sure how much I would use it!

It's cold here too! It's only 45 degrees right now at 6:40 am.

although I liked the Home Sweet Home over the mirror, I Love the plates. Very pretty....The only way I don't bring things out again is to really get rid of them. I try the less is more look, it just doesn't work for me.

I love how your pretty plates look on your wall. I am a believer in hanging plates! I have about a thousand hanging on the wall in the dining room! What better place for plates!
Be a sweetie,

Yep, the rose plates need to be out where they can be seen and enjoyed :0)
Oooo, a new sprayer. What fun you will have with that!
Low 50s? We were mid 50s and only into the high 60s today. Yep, Fall is finally here.

Wow! The rose plates are just beautiful above that mirror, I also like the wood side board matched with the white table and chairs. I like the look of wood furniture mixes with the white shabbt chic furniture.

Kelly your dining room is beautiful. I love the plates. Plates with roses are my weakness. I can't keep myself from buying them when I see them.
I'm sure you'll be painting like a pro with that gun before you know it.

Cindy said...

Hi Kelly, why put such pretty plates away in a cupboard where no-one can see them. I think they look perfect over the mirror. Try and stay warm.

I found your blog this evening...I now have a cramp in my neck....I think I have looked at EVERYTHING!
Beautiful your camper too. I think my favorite is the old dresser with the plate glued onto a fork idea. I will definitely use that!
I am now a FOLLOWER! Best Wishes....Dee

Hi Kelly,
Everything looks so pretty. Love the plates, love your mirror,love the chalk board, love the little rosemary topiaries (are they real? Where did you find them?) And I love, love, love how you've decorated your buffet. Oh so pretty.

Please let us know how your paint sprayer works out...I've always wanted one of those. They seem to make painting jobs so much easier and faster. Keep us posted. Good luck.

Wishing you a wonderful Sunday.

Tons of love,

Hi Kelly,
Ooohh your plates look lovely !! Nope, I could NEVER put my rose plates away ... they look amazing above your mirror !! I met Rachel Ashwell today, and she shared with us all, to mix the roses, and soft pink, aqua, and blues with the dark, chunky pieces of furniture .. One really compliments the other .. Adds soo much softness .. have fun creating

Your plates are perfect around your mirror. I love plates too and have many around the house. I think they are so pretty and there are so many beautiful floral china plates, why not use them on the wall to decorate with, they are so lovely to see.
Take care and enjoy your day,

Linda said...

They look so beautiful over that oval mirror! I do that ALL the time - think I want a change so I put stuff away and just have to get it back out because I love it!

Erica said...
