~ Moving things around ~

Dear Blog Friends, It's been a while since my last post. Kids had competitions, rehearsals and tests at school, so time here has been very short for me to come and write. But I'm missing you guys dearly!!!!
Remember the space I made for myself? Okay, I had to find a place for the table and the mirror to be, right?
So, I decided to move them to the "Foyer". It used to be there a dresser I got at a garage sale, but it wasn't working very well there. The decision was: move the dresser to the basement for the near future "Kids Corner" I'm planing. Soon you will know, because I just sanded the wood table I got at Salvation Army for $9.99!!! It will be for the kids to study, do crafts, art work, etc. And the dresser, of course, to hold all the supplies and paper work from school. It's going to look cool, I promise!
Okay, here is the Front Entrance of our house and the "Foyer", inside:

The two bottles I saved from our boys drink called "Jones" when we go to Starbucks. Luckily, I went to a Antique Mall with a friend other day and found those blue ones...but here in the picture, since I took these ones in the end of March.
And the candle holders, underneath the table are from Pier1. Again, got them on sale for $2.98 each and they used to be green and one red. Just sprayed them in white.
I hope you all had a wonderful week and wishing you a warm and beautiful weekend!
Hugs from me to you,
Li

Well Li, you've done it again - wowed me with your decorating expertise! I love the colour on the exterior of your house and your front door too. Love everything in your foyer, especially the mirror.
Enjoy your weekend:-)

Thanks for your comment. I would love it if you would mention me in your blog. I can't believe you live in Edmonton too! Thats awesome. Anytime you want to go treasure hunting you let me know. I love your blog and really enjoy following you. I know you made that ruffle pillow yourself, do you make any to sell? Let me know because i would love to buy one.

Oi Li! Que linda sua entrada, eu fiquei me perguntando se esse enfeite na porta é macarrão?!rs
Acho tão legal que no exterior seja normal essas vendas de móveis no próprio quintal, aqui no Brasil não tem dessas coisas.. a maioria das pessoas usam seus móveis até surrar.. daí não serve mais pra nada.

Olá, acabei de conhecer o BLOG, lindo! Você é brasileira, imagino que deve ser maravilhoso poder ter tantas coisas lindas em casa e realmente vivenciar o estilo "shabby chic", aqui no Brasil, é muito caro,esse estilo, móveis e acessórios de boa qualidade e lindos de morrer, só para alto padrão de vida! Eu tenho a impressão que no exterior, isso é bem mais acessível, estou certa?
Parabéns por tanto capricho e bom gosto!
