Happy Friday!

Pin It Now!

Happy Friday everyone!  I took a vacation day today to paint my living room but it's supposed to be 85 degrees today so I decided not to.  Instead I'm just having a leisurely day off, maybe I'll even go visit some thrift stores!

I bought the white pitcher above at Michaels on sale for $4.00!  I couldn't resist at that price!  It's the perfect vase for some grocery store roses.

I hope you all have a wonderful weekend.  See you on Monday with a new makeover project!

I love the white vase. What a great find! I especially enjoy the trimming around the handle and opening. It looks lovely nestled between the candles on your coffee table.

I came across your blog on another site. I do hope to stop in regularly. Thanks for all the creative ideas

I hope you are having a wonderful day off. Sometimes you just have to kick back and enjoy some leisure time. :-)

The white vase is a great find at a really great price. It looks perfect with the rose bouquet.

Again, have a wonderful day off!

Hi Cindy,

I have that same pitcher from Michael's last year. I think I paid $10 which was even a good buy but $4 even better. What color are you going to paint your living room?

Can't wait to see your next makeover project.

Donna Lynn said...

Oh what fun to see what color your living room will be! WHITE? maybe warm white, light blue?? Hummmm...
Can't wait to see the end result.
It got up to 60' today, we were so thrilled, and you with 85', my goodness, no wonder the gals with blogs in CA have roses already!
Have a great weekend,
Donna Lynn

I just happened upon your blog thanks to Nesting Place. Oh, Can I please come steal some items from your home? JUST KIDDING!

You have an amazing eye. I live in Alaska, and would love something white, but I live on a gravel runway and a dirt road. Very dusty. I have a bed that I would love to paint white and add gold accents on the headboard. I don't know what colors I'd go with for bedding. My carpet is blue and my walls are Ralph Lauren "Burlap."(Deep Khaki.) Do you have any suggestions?

Love the white pitcher! Hope you have a marvelous weekend!

Nothing like a three day week end... I have a weakness for white and off white pitchers and vases.

Niesz Vintage Home said...

I hope you enjoyed your day off! We all need one of those now and then. :)

That's a lovely white pitcher. Great neutral backdrop for some colorful flowers.
