I wasn't feeling 100% this morning so I was being lazy and sitting on the window seat reading blogs and getting inspired.
This little table is one of my views from my perch on the window seat and on a whim I decided it needed a change.
A quick swap from the MacKenzie-Childs tea kettle holding flowers to some favorite plates
and adding books to the lower shelf and I was done - or so I thought!
I needed to find a place for the tea kettle and that meant changing these shelves
and instantly the dining room was in chaos.
Once I started putting things on the shelves,
I noticed I had a theme going -
clocks were popping up all over
and I had a sudden urge to set out all of my clocks.
As soon as this wall was completed,
I attacked the shelf over the dining room windows.
In this photo from a few weeks ago, you can just catch a small glimpse of what the shelf looked like early this morning.
Now, instead of pitchers, the remainder of my clock collection is in the dining room.
The clocks looked silly spread out so I added old bottles to fill in the space.
The soup tureen came down from the shelf and now sits on the table.
The reorganizing continued into the entry because I had to find a place for all of the pitchers.
I don't keep the cabinet doors open,
but I like having the cupboard neat and tidy.
It all started with a tummy ache
and the inspiration to simply change one little vignette in the dining room.
The next thing I knew, the entire dining room was revamped.
The tummy ache is gone and that's a good thing because I just don't have time tomorrow to change another room.
