I'll get by with a little help from my friends.....

Y'all are so good.....I mean good!  I took your suggestions on what to do with this wall and it looks so much better.  Wanna see.........
I added the ironstone platter on the top of the shelf.  Got it from Miss Minnie's.  I had the other plates and didn't even think of using them until you clever bloggers told me to.
See what I mean....y'all are good!


I found this metal bottle holder at one of our favorite stores....HG.
I'm still in the process of finding bottles.  For now, the little vintage milk bottle will have to do.  I'm thinking of filling it up with more of the mason jars with the frog lids.



So.......here's the before.....

And, the after....
I'm still not done.  It needs a little more color.
I'm workin on it....are we ever satisfied!

Thanks to all of you for your wonderful ideas and suggestions.
You are the best bloggers ever!!!!

~~hugs~~

CHERI said...

The addition of the platters really helps make the wall pop. I agree that you might need just a little bit of color. Of course, with me there is never enough color! I'm sure those who offered you ideas were just returning the favor because you give us wonderful ideas all the time!
