Welcome to another installment of Gitter Done!
While this might LOOK like a mantle vignette, it is, in actuality, a big-time Gitter Done project. But have no fear, I won't put anything else I do with the bookcase top under Gitter Done again . . . ;o)
This is how my bookcase has looked for more than a year. Well, the spindles were a fairly recent addition, but you get the idea. Blech. Blah. No color to speak of. (And the yellow project bag doesn't count! lol)
So, I decided that since it was February, I should spruce things up a bit. I hunted through the bonus room for my box of pretties that used to live on the mantle and bookcase, to see what I could find. And boy, did I ever find. :o) I found a lamp I love, two sweet little porcelain heirlooms from my grandmother (a little dove trinket box and a tiny flowery vase), little angels from my mother, and more.
I shopped the house to pull together some fun things to support my pink theme (pink books, a temple painting from the ledge I built, and the little statuette I gave Vern for Father's Day last year) . . . and voila! I got something else done to beautify my nest!!!
Thanks again, Marianne, for starting this. It has made a big difference in my home . . . there are so many little projects that I won't ever post to Gitter Done, but I might blog them and send you a link someday. :o)
Have a great weekend, everyone!
