Two months ago, I talked about moving this cabinet into the entry and said I wanted to paint it.
Last month, I showed you a picture of the cabinet painted, but I was not happy with the "staging" of the cabinet.
I still need to sand the cabinet, but finally the entry makes me happy.
The star of the entry is one of Steve's paintings, Flowers and Rust, which is 4 feet across and 5 feet tall.
It's an old painting of the garden and the only thing that remains the same from that painting is the rusty watering can.
The green box, my grandmother's Coats & Clark sewing box, sits on the cabinet holding flatware.
Steve always hates change, but he likes this one because he knows right where to put the flatware when he unloads the dishwasher.
The bird candle holder was a gift from one of my college roommates and I am so happy that I found a prominent place for it.
The green of the box and the yellow of this birdcage blend beautifully with the colors in the painting.
I have no idea why I have started a mouse collection - maybe I should blame Vera of Rowhomes and Cobblestones who always shows us the sweetest little mice.
My excuse is that these little Maileg mice me smile.
I like the view of the "Garden Room" from the doorway and from the kitchen.
I don't know when I will get the cabinet sanded because my hand still troubles me and also because JP's wedding is just 11 weeks away - I am in full "wedding creativity mode".
I leave you with a picture of "Little Lulu" and Steve in the "Garden Room".
