A Small Change

Sometimes the simplest tweaking can make such a difference!

The flags on the bobbins and candlesticks came from my mom and dad for our anniversary.  I fell in love with those at the antique gallery and I could just picture those on the mantle. So I was really tickled to get these for our anniversary.  Isn't it funny how the anniversary gifts are usually geared more towards the wife than the husband.  :)  I'd love to see some gameboards up there, but this is a step in the right direction.

And I moved the geraniums in the picnic basket from my sunporch to the hearth on the little bench.

This splash of color was just enough to make me happy( for now).

Of course, fall is coming, so who knows what will come next.......  :)


I'd love for you to join me for Pinned it, Made it! Monday.  I should have that ready for link-up sometime Sunday night.

Thank you so much for stopping by!  :)

Linking with Sunny Simple Life.

Looks wonderful. I was thinking fall today. Air off, doors and windows open, plus the fact I will be gone some, I need to get it done. Again the flags were perfect. You know how you and I are with our red.

Hi Tammy, I adore the flags. Once upon a time I had a quilted fabric checker board (red, blue) with an attached drawstring bag full of checkers! That would be perfect in your room!
Have a blessed Sunday.


Important that the old ones to use is a very important action.
Setting of your fireplace is great.

I really like those flags in the spindles, they look perfect with the rest of your fireplace accents. And the geraniums - well no need to say how great they look! Ann
