...this is my old stove top board, I just put it on top of this cabinet to get it out of the dining room...and to get some things picked up....this is the brick on the wall, across from the chimney
These are the switch plates I found! I am doing a pineapple theme in here, well not really a theme, nothing too dramatic, just some pineapple accents here and there...I was also goin with pewter knobs for the cabinets, and the fan has a pewter head...so when I came across these, well I just had to have them! They are aged pewter and they have little pineapples on them! LOVE 'em! Now if I was "LOOKING" for some like these, I would never find them...I just happened upon them, I'm thinkin that means I was meant to have them ;)
I chose an old lookin fan and punch tin lighting...we did a texture on the walls and ceiling...the flooring will appear old too, other than that, it's very hard to get the look of an old kitchen!
I tried tho!
I took a few outside pics for ya....here's my duck house...we used to have ducks, I loved them, well, maybe not 'loved' them, but I really enjoyed them!! They had quite the house, a back door... a front porch, windows....out behind the house is the creek...they hung out there for the most part. All I had to do was whistle and they would come home! They are no longer with us, the coyotes and fox got 'em :(
...I actually wanted to show you the pic of the stone wall in front of it tho...
Looks like it collapsed??
Nope...we have a big black bear who likes to visit us, and one night when Steve took the dogs out, the bear was out there and Steve startled him so he took off running and ran head first into my stone wall!!
OOOOOOOOUCH! Blew the wall apart!
Here's a picture of my pond.
Hubs and I built this, we gathered the stones when we did the excavation, when we built his workshop! Gathered 'em up and saved them to build a pond. It's quite large, about 26 feet long and 12 ft wide at the widest point.
Steve also built the gazebo you see in the background.
This is a gathering I have out back on the patio
see my crow on the old watering can?
My friend Pam, made him for me :)
He looks so cute on there, doesn't he?
I just have to show a picture of Ava :)
Isn't she precious!
"Grammy Love" is just the best :)
