Evening in the Country...
...a gorgeous view of the WV mountains I get to enjoy everyday. Also the place Bri proposed earlier this year! [Not taken on that day.]

The Details

So...after much trouble with my computer (not really, but any trouble is annoying) I have finally added the details in my sewing room. There is (as always) much left to do in the room...like adding the sewing machine! Haha. Anyway, first is a picture of my personal items atop my dresser.

The statue is a gift from B's G, when she gave us the bookcases in this room.
To the right of that, is a dragonfly picture holder. It focuses on my two fav guys and a pic from my much much much younger days!

Here you can see a letter organizer I found at Home Goods. I put it on its side for a nice look and added my paint cards I grabbed from Lowe's. Gotta love Valspar!
And then there is my decade old tape dispenser.

This is a nice shot of my side table from Home Goods. You can see how it is nice and clear, no clutter, just the way it should be!

Here you can see the avian scroll on the vases from Pier 1 Imports. I still cannot believe the price I got them!
And then the copper tart burner with mandarin orange (a nice refreshing scent).

And one of my fav pieces! The copper switch plate. I actually had a dimmer knob in place of this switch. Unfortunately, you cannot use the good green light bulbs with a dimmer.
Then there was the fact that the knob on the dimmer broke and my fingers were becoming sore from the twisting of a piece of metal. Anyhow, my point is, I have this AWESOME copper plate!

So, what do you think? I looooove it! This weekend I will begin my first reupholstering project. I am not sure when the great giraffe print fabric and green zebra print fabric will come in, but I have a lot of sanding ahead of me! Of course, I am also waiting for my shelf brackets I ordered on Ace Hardware's storefront on Amazon.

Then there is the McCall's pattern I found to make magazine holders. Of course, I could always just cover a cereal box!

I love it.

I really like how you used the unexpected green as an accent. It's perfect. The Pier 1 vases are gorgeous and you don't, or atleast I haven't {and I do A LOT} of research} seen copper used that often and I adore it. You truly did a great job!
Do you keep going in there just to look at it? I know I always do that when I finish a project! LOL

Yes I do! I can't help but stare in awe.
