Twiggy Finds a Home


Today is the last Wednesday of the month so that means it’s party time over at The Stories of A to Z.  The perfect time to share another part of my slow updates to my kitchen dinette/office area.  I updated the family photo wall as I showed you HERE and in the corner of this wall is my computer armoire.


Here it is in it’s very sad, neglected state before. (I told you I still had a pine tree up from winter…horrible, but remember it did snow here the other day!)


And, the after.  Ahhh, much betta!  It feels clean and light and fresh.  I often question why things that bother me so much (like the before shot) take me so long to do something about.  Maybe I subconsciously prolong them so the after with feel that much better.  Hahaha, or maybe I’m just a procrastinator. ;)  Either way, this feels good.

As you can see the twiggy arrangement I made the other day is serving her purpose nicely.  You can see how I put it together HERE.  You’ll also see my clearance clock (that doesn’t work by the way, but that is a whole other story.;)  and some stacked thrift store books.  *I love using books in decorating.  It is a great way to add height, color and interest.* 

I also put a little lamp up for some cozy warmth.  I have had this one for years, I spruced it up with a little funky trim.


The fabulous little ‘N’ found it’s place as well, above the pictures.  Cute, huh? 

The room is still definitely a work in progress and I will continue to share it’s progress.  New light, new window ‘mistreatments’, painting chairs…fun stuff! 

This is random, but Speaking of paint, I had the weirdest dream last night.  We were at an old friends house for dinner and I started spray painting furniture on their lawn and they didn’t really appreciate it.  The weird part is that I thought it was perfectly normal and acceptable behavior for a guest at a dinner party.  Have I gone mad?  Wait…don’t answer that. ;)

Linking up…check out all the goods!


  1. I would love a clock like that! Beautiful decorating!!!

  2. What a sweet vignette! I love that clock.

  3. I love your vignette! Gorgeous clock. LOL on your dream! I think it is your brain's way of dealing with the potential cognitive dissonance between your blogging world and your non-blogging world. If you came over and started spray painting my stuff I'd be happy :)....(as long as it was in a good color.)

  4. Krista is all so precious! Where did you find that teeny lamp? It is just the sweetest thing. Love it!

    Have a great evening. ~Melissa :)

  5. This is beautiful! I LOVE the clock, who cares if it works or not! It LOOKS good! The "n" looks fab too!!

  6. Nice vignette! But how could I not like it, it has twigs in it! Love the clock too.

  7. Oooh, I also love the clock. You are welcome to come to my house and spray paint anytime!


Your comments are much appreciated! :)
