WELCOME TO MY NEW BLOG!!!!

I DABBLE IN A BIT OF THIS AND THAT!!!!

A Bit if Aqua Here and There

Welcome!!

In today's post, I will be sharing why I decided to use more of the color aqua in my late Summer decor in our Living Room......

But first, I want to Thank Dagmar, over at Dagmar's Home, for choosing my post, "Under the Sea" Ornaments, Part 1, as her featured post from last week's Dagmar's Home Link Party!!
Thanks so much, Dagmar!!

I also want to Thank Karren, over at Oh My Heartsie Girl, for featuring my post, My Summer "Under the Sea" Tree, from last week's Friday Favorites Linky Party!!
Thanks so much, Karren!!

And I also want to Thank Richella, over at Imparting Grace, for featuring the same post, My Summer "Under the Sea" Tree, from last week's Grace at Home Party!!
Thanks so much, Richella for your kind words!!

Please visit and link up to these great parties!!

The main colors of our Living Room are peach and aqua......
I based that decision on this wall paper border called Monet's Garden that I have had for many years and I still love!!

Even when we remodeled almost the entire downstairs several years ago, I kept that color scheme because I love it.

I painted the walls and the ceiling a deep peach.....
Below the chair rail , I did a stipled effect using peach and aqua.......
 And I also used the same technique on the paneled brick wall but added a 3rd color.......
A deep beige that matches the color of our sofa and chairs......

For the Summer, I changed the drapes out with peach lace curtains......
 I already shared my Summer "Under the Sea" Tree...

And I shared my Summer LED Branch Tree.....
 I also added touches of aqua to this area of the Living Room.......
 Most of the pictures on the walls are old Home Interior pictures that I bought when the color "teal" was popular........
 Now, 20+ years later, it is called aqua..........
 I changed out the gold candles that I had in the sconces on each side of the hutch for aqua ones ......
 I added different aqua items to the inside in the hutch........
 Glassware and candles.........
My "Art Gallery"that I have had here for many years.........
As I mentioned before, I decorated the LED Branch Tree with aqua ornaments......
Down the hall way from the living Room to the Kitchen, there is a mirror on the wall between the coat closet and the Powder Room door that I usually decorate with a wreath for various Seasons and Holidays.......
I made this wreath some time ago and since I had some aqua flowers left over from my "Under the Sea" projects, I decided to add them to this wreath.......
I also added some white flowers......
I also added these same aqua flowers to existing vignettes through out the Living Room.......
In a previous post, I shared this wreath that I made........
More aqua colored candles......
I also shared my "Under the Sea" Tree.......
And how I decorated around the Tree........
And underneath the Tree.......
More touches of aqua......
My "Stroll in the Park" display on top of the TV Entertainment Center with aqua mercury glass candlesticks.............
And a few more aqua accents......
I know that my style , which is what I call Romantic Victorian, is not the style of the day......

But I am seeing more florals and lace appearing in fashion and when that happens, changes in Home Decor usually follow......

So I just may be in style again because styles usually come around again every 20 -25 years......

This is the style that makes my heart sing so It is always in style for me!!

In my next post, I will share how my late Summer decor in the Living Room looks in the Evening......
So I hope you will be back to visit again soon.......

"A Stroll in the Park"

Welcome!!!

Today I will be sharing how I decorated the top of the TV Entertainment Center in the Living Room.....

But first, I want to Thank Claire, over at Claire Justine, for featuring my post, "Under the Sea" Ornaments, Part 1, from last week's Creative Mondays party!!
 Thanks so much , Claire!! And thanks for your very kind words!! I really appreciate it!!

I also want to Thank Sue, over at Sizzling Toward Sixty, for sharing my post,  The "Beach" Beneath My "Under The Sea" Tree,  on her face book site!!

Thanks so much Sue, for the recognition!!  Sue is also one of the hosts of the Over the Moon Party!!

Please stop by and link up to these lovely parties!!

In my previous posts, I have been sharing my late Summer decorating theme in the Living Room......

 "Under the Sea".......
It all started with the idea for decorating my 6 foot white Tree that sits in the corner of the Living Room from Spring until after Labor Day!!

I wanted to decorate it differently after the Patriotic Summer Holidays of Memorial Day and July 4th were over..........

Using sea shells that my dear neighbor, Elly, had collected while living in Miami during the Winters, I decorated the Tree in an "Under the Sea" Theme using the colors of aqua with a bit of peach.....
 I also decorated the corner over by the stairs using a bit of aqua.......
By decorating the LED Branch Tree here with aqua butterflies, dragonflies and birds.......
Click HERE if you missed that post......

A few years ago, I decorated the top of the TV Entertainment Center  and called it "A Stroll in the Park"..

This year, I decided to do it again but with a few different pieces.....
Picture a Summer day back in Victorian times when Mothers of that Era took their children to the park to ride the Carousel......
Evening is starting to fall and the lights on the Trees are coming on in the park......
Okay, I know there were not any lights on the Trees back then.....LOL!!
On the left side........
An aqua mercury glass candlestick with a flameless candle on a timer......
I tied a bow made out of aqua and peach ribbon to the candlestick.......

I have used these ribbons in other areas in the Living Room......

A LED battery operated Tree on a Timer.......
Surrounded by greenery on the bottom or I should say "shrubs" in the Park.....
These children cannot wait for their Mother to let them ride the Carousel!!!!
She has just gotten up from sitting a spell on the park bench.......
The figurines are from the Home Interiors Party Plan that is no longer in existence....

As are the pictures on the wall..........
The picture to the left shows the wooded area in the Park......

The Carousel sits between 2 street lamps.........
This young Mother decided to take her baby for a walk in her stroller since it was such a nice Summer afternoon......
Her baby started to cry so she took her out of the stroller for a bit.......
The Carousel was bought at Sam's Club many years ago after Christmas on Clearance.......
  This Mother is fixing her daughter's hair since it was tossled while riding the Carousel......
Another park bench offered a place to sit and rest while strolling through the Park......
The Home Interiors picture on the wall to the right depicts a church off in the distance......
Another aqua mercury glass candlestick.....
Along with another LED battery operated Tree..........
This young Lady just met with her Beau who gave her the lovely bouquet of flowers that she is holding........
She is thinking about her beau as she leaves the Park to walk home.......
More greenery or should I say shrubbery in the Park........
You can see that I have strung a set of lights throughout the display.......
 I will be sharing how this all looks in the Evening in another post.......

I hope you enjoyed taking "A Stroll in the Park" with me during Victorian times.......
 I want to show you this picture that hangs on the wall going up the stairs that is also a Home Interiors product and is titled "A Stroll in the Park"!!!!
 It was my inspiration!!!

In my next post, I will be sharing how I added some aqua touches to my existing decor throughout the Living Room.....
 And how I re-did a wreath that I made a few years ago by adding a few aqua flowers........
 So I hope you will be back to visit again soon.......
