Another Part of Our Family Room

Thanks to everyone for all of the great comments you have been sending me on my Thanksgiving posts.  This blogworld is such an amazing community.  And speaking of amazing, a special thanks to my friend Michelle at Emerald Cove for the feature she did today on my blog.  She is also featuring a really great game of “tag” that will be fun to participate in.

And now for my regularly scheduled blog….!

These are some shelves that are behind my love seat and along the pathway to the bathroom and guest room.

I used some of the clock faces and a few fall pieces.  I am really happy with these shelves, I am still waiting to find the perfect piece of furniture to go under it.  The biggest challenge is it can only about 10 to 12 inches deep.  I would like it to be a painted piece.  If I don’t find something soon, I may just ask the hubby to help me make something….Until then, here are the shelves..

This little red bird always finds a place in my home.  Although it is not technically a cardinal, it is tribute to my Grandfather who always loved cardinals.

I love the maple leaf stencil.  Making maple syrup is a big part of our family’s lives, so I was so happy when I found this on Etsy.

  4. It's so much fun to display items that mean something to your family. I love what you've done on these two simple shelves. (LOVE the red bird – the perfect splash of color! My dad loved cardinals, too. I can't see one without thinking of him.)
