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 said....it'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 say...my 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.
