Just a quick post (post haste!) on this very cold South Florida evening, and yes.....it's COLD here and I am not complaining. Normally we sweat and fry eggs on the sidewalk (just kidding about the eggs, but you could:-), so this weather is a relief. It's nice not to sweat, but with the temp this morning at 32, I feel for the orange growers here in Florida.....and there are not that many of those groves left anyway.
On to my post....I was so thrilled to have won a blog giveaway, and a fabulous one at that! I want to thank the lovely Tricia over at the blog MorningT for sending these to me and the fabulous designer Janette Mallory for hosting this giveaway at her blog (click on their blog names to go visit).
I won this gorgeous pair of Aidan Gray candlesticks and they are just so fabulous in all of their French reproduction style.....don't you agree?
|Photo from the Morning T blog, I have not had a chance to photograph them myself yet, so I hope that Tricia doesn't mind me using her photo, all credit due......|
|They might inspire me to continue that living room redo that I started about a year ago and have not had the gumption to finish. Definitely going for that WHITE look in our home, with this antique French tufted sofa......|
|Do you remember how it looked when I found it while out junking? There's a previous post here somewhere!......|
|Maybe I'll use them in my dining room that is also in a "redo" state of white.......|
|In addition to all of the white, I'm on a button tufted kick. An estate purchase....leaving the French bleu velvet fabric as it's in pretty good shape. This chair is currently residing in the dining room.....but you know how that goes!.....|
|Maybe I'll use them in the master bedroom? Still working on this room as well and can just never find the time to finish any of these projects....|
|Perhaps on this mantel that's in the bedroom?.....|
