Post Holiday News

It's 10:00 PM and sleep is eluding me. Probably because I took 2 Ibuprofen PM tablets last night and slept in until 8:00 this morning.  Something I never do.  I'm lucky to sleep past 6:00.    I went to bed at 9:00, so that means I slept 11 hours without even getting up to use the bathroom 3 times like I usually do.

I wasn't going to post until tomorrow, but since I can't sleep, here I am!

We had a very nice Thanksgiving.  I got to use my canvas placemats that I made.  I bought the buffalo check napkins on Amazon and I think they look perfect with my Friendly Village China.  They have the napkins in a bunch of colors.  They have some red ones and I might get a set of those to go with my Blue Willow china that I use at Christmas.

Now, if I can just get a new dining room set.  I have my eye on this set at American Furniture.

I LOVE the backs on the chairs that go on the ends.  The fabric is a greige kind of tweed and it has the nailhead accents.  I also like the little drawers in the table. I am currently crushing on Farmhouse style and this set is spot on. It's around $900 and I'm really trying to figure out a way to swing it.  Probably when I get my tax return.  

I bet ya thought I forgot about showing you the fireplace since I painted, but I didn't forget.  Other things got in the way is all.  So, here's the before.  

And here's the after...

The brown was nice, but as I's dark in this area as it is, and the white brightened it up a lot.  I like how it turned out.  I plan to add some nicer moldings to the mantel and perhaps paint it a contrasting color.  I was thinking of a dark gray.  That will break up the white, while maintaining the brightness. 

I have physical therapy tomorrow and I have to arm has gotten more painful since doing the therapy.  I see the cardiologist on Tuesday, so hopefully he may be able to give me some idea as to when I can get my surgery done.
