After the Easter decor came down, I took a look around and decided to make a few small changes. I don't know why, but I've always arranged things facing toward the middle of a table. Like this...
See how the items are all turned in instead of facing straight out? The candle holder on the left is diagonal. Yeah, that started to bug me. I looked around my home and almost every table had items facing in toward the middle. Why did I always do that? I have no idea. Anyway, this is prob the most boring post ever, but I think it really did make a difference when I turned everything to forward facing. For some weird reason, it has a more "traditional decor" look now. Well, to me it does. :)
Here are some shots of my new "forward facing" table decor...
My great grandmother illustrated that book and the little trinket bowl was handmade by my son in elementary school. :)
I used to have an orchid on this bathroom counter. I moved it over by the tub and I like the cleaner look of just my jewelry box and my hubby's valet box.
I brought my bee vase back out and this potpourri container was in my bathroom where the orchid is now. Did ya follow all that? Hee hee!
That bee vase was a JoAnn's clearance find for about $6.
I still can't believe how inexpensive these tobacco baskets were. I love how this one looks under my San Fran pics. I really hope to get back to Cali soon.
I also added in a few more books to my decor. I love stacking things on top of books for height and added interest.
I also brought out this pretty vase my SIL gave me...
Here's a closer look at the Bombay cabinet in the living room. This is where my smaller tobacco basket ended up. :)
