“New” Old Wooden Bowl and A Few Simple Displays

Happy Monday everyone! I thought I would pop on here and share a couple of tidbits! We had a fun weekend, gorgeous weather! Very windy but gorgeous…hot as a matter of fact. We grilled burgers, brats and hot dogs and had watermelon! It sure felt like Summer!

My hubby and I went to a couple antique stores. Boy, did I see a lot of things I wanted, but I can’t take it all home with me. I did get this bowl! It is old and cracked but I don’t care, I LOVE it! Cracks add character and the color and natural distressing on it are what caught my eye! The best part….it was only $10.00! Yay!

Here are a few displays around our home. I just rearranged things a bit and added some greenery and florals to freshen everything up!

Here is my personal “Scent Of The Month”! It is from Yankee Candle. It is called Orchard Pear! It smells wonderful and I love the picture on the front of it! Give it a try, it’s a winner!
