I don't know yet if I'll keep it here, but I ended up trying out this little decorative piece in my dining room in a spot that is extremely hard to photograph well.
I still need a cord cover for my chandelier. But the little added detail over the window really finishes it off with the suggestion of the French style that I love.
I also found that Pottery Barn was running a sale when we popped in this weekend, and I added a few new ruffles to my life.
I'm not into a whole lot of frou frou as a steady diet, but it's been a fun foray into the softer side of a style that I have admired from the sidelines for a long time.
Here's a little better (but not by much) view of the recent changes in my dining room. The door and window trim have gone from a dark wood stain to a lighter brighter painted finish. And the heavy black iron Spanish style light fixture was switched with a sparkly one. This room has so much more light and energy now!
Little Debbie's new Fancy Cakes box with the pale pink stripes I'm loving this summer. . . . Do you laugh every time you see a new Little Debbies box on my blog? Me too! LOL!
The PB napkins have a wonderfully soft texture, and laundering and pressing made them even softer. I can't wait to have a girly lunch or tea with them.
Here's a little more frothy china and lace for inspiration. . . .
A nest of ruffles.
Well, fancy is over for now. We're back to business this week with LOTS of catching up to do. How about you? I'm so glad you had time to stop by!
