Three or More Thursday & Help me decide...
I had all ready posted for today, then I saw Tam's "Three or More Thursday" and wanted in on the fun :0). It made for one lllooonnnggg entry. Thanks for taking the time!
Happy first Three or More Thursday!!! So graciously hosted by Tam @ The Gypsy's Corner. Be sure to pay her a visit for more "Three or More" paraders.
I"m going to share a collection of Pigs that my hubby actually started. I happen to like pigs, I think they're cute and actually even asked for a potbelly as a pet, but alas my hubs said "nay!" (or is that oink!) So instead he began gifting me with these little figurines. Each figurine represents something about us and our life together.
Here we have us as (from left to right) as two little piggies just hugging and loving each other. The second pig is down on his knee, popping the big question, the third figurine shows two pigs on their wedding day, and the fourth figurine he gave to me when we had our first child together. Sorry for the quality, my camera is not cooperating for this shot.
Here is the entire collection. Different figurines for different things that are unique to us. That pig on the motorcycle for example-my hubs used to ride a Harley. The pig at the juke box because my hubs plays guitar and sings, the pig couple in back is "us" and is called "my sweet valentine". I don't display them like I used to and they are put away for now (little hands about) but I always thought how sweet the gesture for my hubs to go out and take the time to find specifically themed figures that "could" represent us.
Help! I've had this cabinet for almost twelve years and I've yet to do anything with it. It's unfinished and in desperate need of a facelift. It only stands about 5'8" or so and as you can see the shelves are not very big or deep (that pic is a 5x7 frame). I've thought about painting it but I'm not sure which way to go with it. My living area is yellow (wickerware) and the molding, trim work and ceiling are white. The eating/dining area have the colors that are in the living area since it's all one big room. I have two end tables and a coffee table that are pine, that I'll be painting in an antique white color. Do I paint this piece the same color or do I take it another direction? The accent colors in the room are red, with some green. The curtains are Waverly Pantry Plaid in Crimson/Ecru. I posted a picture of the eating area so you can get a better idea of the colors/accents in the room. The white serving cart will eventually make it's way into the kitchen area, so the only furniture piece that will be white, will be the table and chairs, but I'm also thinking of giving these a facelift as well. I think I'm just over thinking the whole thing and it's causing me doubt. What are your thoughts. Be honest, but gentle :0). Thanks very much!
Thanks very much for stopping by and saying Hi! I hope you have a fantastic day!
