New China Cabinet and JDL!!!

Thanks for all your helpful comments on my painted hutch.  You are the best when it comes to feedback and suggestions.  So, the majority said, "NO!"  So, I removed it and replaced it.
My entryway extends to an open dining room.  So the perfect place for this piece is the entryway.

This is a pretty piece from the Bob Timberlake design made by Lexington furntiture.  Lucky me, bought it from another vendor that had it in her booth. 
I am going to rearrange it on the inside and combine the white plates with the transfer ware.  I think I put too much white on the top shelf but I couldn't wait to show it to all of you.
I've been trying out a touch of the color, soft coral.  I think I'm liking it, for now.  Who knows what color I'll use next.  I think I'm I suffer from "color fear."
On the other side of the cabinet I placed a wingback chair and hung the gold mirror.  For now, I like it.  For now.

Thank you all so much!!!

Switching gears, here's a look at the newest style from Jeanne d'Arc Living.  I'll have it in my Etsy Shop today.
 This one is too pretty for words.  The lace and the slip underneath are enough to make you just want to hang it on the wall and keep it forever.

Okay, that's it for now.  What do you think of the new cabinet?

Not sure about this one???

You know how sometimes you change something in your home, but that little voice inside your already overcrowded head says, um, not sure about this?
I bought this vintage hutch with the intentions of painting it and selling it in my booth.  I used Faux Real Mineral Paint in the color "cream," waxed it with dark brown and added some pretty knobs.

 Then I remembered my collection of brown transfer ware that had no place to call home.  

 Of course that meant moving everything that used to be in this spot, including taking down the wall decor.
Now, after all the moving around I'm still not sure if I like it!  
So, what's a blogger to do???  Just ask her blogger buds what they think, right?  So, what do you think?  Keep it, move it, sell it????

Faux Flowers add happiness to you decor

Just a little something to freshen up the blog today.  I know many of you frown on faux flowers but I think they brighten up my home when fresh ones aren't available or affordable.
I had several stems inside the closet so when I found this cute basket at HL, I decided just to throw them in and see what happened.  This sits on one of the tables in my entryway.
 My dining room table, which is seldom ever used, is a great place to add some faux flowers.  I love the cotton stems.
Okay, that's my short and sweet post for today.  Hope you are enjoying the Spring weather.
