Touches here and there
Life has been hectic around here with many guests visiting and in my limited spare time after doing all that is needed to be done for daily living, I managed to squeeze in a few small projects and touches here and there. This linen cushion cover (the middle one)I made which I adorned with French words really creates an atmosphere that I like, I think I'd like to do a few more of those when I can. I also made a few more cushion covers for cushions on our super comfy new couches. These new couches are in an oatmeal or white sand colour which is the hue of vintage linens. I think it's a light enough colour if you don't really want white. Any colour scheme can go with this colour. They remind me of the beach when paired with blue and white. They are much larger in real life than in photos for some reason. In the hallway, I've finally decided to decorate with chalkboards made out of old picture frames. I really enjoyed making them. The two on each side look like menu boards, but I didn't write any menus on them, the writings are two French Bible verses from Psalms. One says: "Blessed are those whose trangression is forgiven and whose sin is pardoned" taken from Psalms 32:1 and the other one says " Your word is the lamp unto my feet and light unto my path". Psalms 119:105. The one in the middle says, "Pray without ceasing" in French. In the laundry, I've added a few chalkboard pieces as well-- again, digging out old picture frames-- On the shelf............ On top of the cupboard.............. "Washed clean, white as snow." Puns intended, lol.And........you'd be right to say I've been very fond of chalkboards............wink!
