Greens

I bought a couple of Rachel Ashwell pillows at Target the other day...



Smitten as I was by all this yumminest of aquamarines and blues and serene greens on the pillows, I got inspired to paint...



I'm talking about furniture painting, of course... And thus, I decided it was definitely time (again) to change the paint color on some of the furniture in my 'girly' room upstairs.   I love pink... I do, but for some reason my heart is not into pink lately.  Color infatuation comes and goes around here depending on moods and other fanciful dreams... and thus, I opted for green this time.
  

Remember this little vintage piece here in soft pink?


Then turned into this... (same wall, with wallpaper now)


And now is green!




Isn't green one of the loveliest color ever?  And there's so many variations and shades of it to chose from... moss green, myrtle green, pine green, tea green, olive green, celadon, emerald, jade... you name it....



I chose to do a two-tone color... Clubhouse green (dark) and Paradise green (light) from Valspar.




I bought these aquamarine pulls at Michael's – $1.00 awhile ago. Didn't know exactly what was I going to do with them back then... now I know!  Perfect color too!



I have to admit that the distressed finished is not my favorite style for my home.  I prefer to finish my furniture in a shiny, high-gloss finish. It had something to do I guess with my childhood and having grown up in a poor home were furniture (and practically everything else) were passed down from generation to generation... years and years of chipped, peeling paint, rust and weathered furniture was the standard of the poor.  Very shabby, but certainly not chic.




Oh and did you notice my new boho fabric-covered boxes?  I am so head over heels in love with this...






 Love love love them!  Half price off - at Hobby Lobby!

PS:  I cannot wish for better days, or lovelier weather; so exquisite with chilly mornings and soft sunshine throughout the day; with nippy nights closing up as early as 5:30pm. By four, sunshine starts turning into a misty fairydust of a light; like a feathered vision of some sorts, the atmosphere gets imbued with itty bitty creatures that seems to glow and dance in the mellow afternoon light. It's the magical light of autumn.
 My husband is coming 'home' to the house in the roses this Thursday. I'm excited. My heart is overflowing with mixed emotion, as we're finally getting closer to a definite move. One more week, and we'll be parting away from our home of 28 years; leaving behind some very dear people. I am shocking in a river of emotion as I write this. I wish I could shut my mind and my heart for a little while... if maybe, by doing so, I could quieted my sadness away.

What can I say? I truly want to believe with all my heart that we're following the path that God has called us to walk. May quietness and trust enhance my awareness of His presence.

  1. Your pillows are very lovely. I like the pretty green that you have picked. I am into red's - love it.
    The boxes are really cute. So glad that your husband is coming home and that you will soon be moving. I know you hate to leave your beautiful home but your going on a new wonderful journey. I am sure that God has something special in store for you.
    God bless.

  2. I love it all, Cielo! The greens/blues of the table you painted are gorgeous. . .the drawer pulls look so pretty with those colors. I am of the same mind as you with the shabby, distressed paint jobs that are so popular today. I am only interested in it if the piece of furniture is truly "old" and not too heavily distressed. Such pretty thoughts you have about this time of year. It is kind of magical. . .I actually love this time, and Winter, too. We see some real beauty on our lake year round. Have a wonderful day!

  3. I am praying for some peace of mind for you, Cielo-peace that you may know you are on the right path and that there is a whole new adventure waiting for you-one that will enrich and brighten your life. Try to live in the moment so you aren't saddened by your past- xo Diana

  4. I've never lived in a home that long....but when I had to leave our first home (of only 6 yrs) to move half way across our country it was traumatic for me...so I have compassion towards your pain. Now we are in our second home after living in rentals for 8 yrs. This Sea Cottage is supposed to be our restoration of the first home we lost..and we are in the process of home loan modifying to remain. I trust the LORD more than I ever have before so I have peace. I only want to be in His will. He is greater than our earthly circumstances and His LOVE will continue to captivate us no matter what happens. He is our dwelling place. xxo sea fairy kisses to you

  6. I know those little "bits," which dance up and down, up and down, in the afternoon sunlight. And in the last slanting rays of near-end-of-day sunlight. I guess they are tiny flying bugs. But a magical theory is so much lovelier..... :-) Thank you.

    Another week. It sounds as if the house is sold, and you will fully move... About Nov. 1st.

    All best wishes to you. And lots of hugs, to ease the sadness, which has to be dealt with, too.....

    Tessa~

  7. Nice to see you back home again, if only for a short time, maybe the last. I love to visit and see all the roses and lovely things you create. There is so much of you in that house, from the curtains on the windows to the flowered wallpaper in the girlie room. You are so talented and now we can add painting to the list. You have so many gifts to share.
    Best to you and you husband.

  8. So pretty and feminine Cielo. I do love Rachel Ashwell's collection for Target. I bought a comforter set from her collection which I am currently in love with. Her fabrics are so soft and romantic. Your room is a true reflection of your soul. What an inviting and beautiful space.

    Love it all. Glad to see that things are falling into place for you.

    A warm hug for you querida amiga. Stop by to visit when you get a chance.

  11. My friend convinced me and i had no choice than to follow my friend advice,because i never dreamed of loosing my lovely Husband. And i contacted_________Robinson.buckler {@ yahoo }. com, and i discussed with him all my problems and worries and so surprisingly,he told me that I’ll get my husband back a day after. I didn’t believed Him, until when i got home,the next day,my husband called me to inform me that he is coming back home…..So Amazing!! That’s how i got my back through spell casting and our relationship was stronger than ever. One of the price i was asked to pay was to tell it to the people around me that problems like this,can always be solved by Robinson Buckler So! my advice to you out there is to visit this same E-mail address,and tell him your problems too,if you are in any condition related to love issue or getting your ex back or and problem at all, pls Contact him and have a happy life.______ YEEEAAASSS!!!👏🏾👏🏾👏🏾👏🏾👏🏾👏🏾👏🏾👏🏾👏🏾👏🏾
