I think that I had left you last week with a sneak peek of some thing that I was working on.
As you know, or may not if you are new here, in which case I welcome you and thank you for tagging along with me, I LOVE fireplaces/faux mantels!!
Well, I have this wall in my kitchen that was lonely and needed to be apart of all the fun.
Last month I went and picked up some Annie Sloan Chalk paint for me and for Laurie (Heaven's Walk),
and I came across this beauty!!
I had to have her so I told myself that if I did not spend the money that I saved for last flea market I would come back and if she was there, I would take her home.
Well, as fate would have it, or just dumb luck, I hardly spent anything at the market, went to the store the next day,
she was there and now she is here!!!
So much lighter and brighter.
I added some of my beachy things and treasured treasures.
This summer I picked up this map/poster of Leelanau County which is the county that Glen Lake is in.
I just love the vintage feel of it and the colors are perfect!
Traverse City is known as the Cherry Capital and almost everything up there has places that bake the cherries into everything!!
I also found a perfect, and appropriate home for the sweet gift that Laurie sent me as a thank you for getting her some paint.
A gorgeous aqua jar and one of her beautiful clay tags.
Thank you sweets!!!
I also ordered faux logs to go in the opening of the mantel.
It is supposed to have the lights and crackles like a real fireplace.
Unfortunately no heat, but I just love the idea of the sights and sounds of a real fire to feel cozy all through fall and winter.
I will show you once I get it in!
