I have been playing around with things in my home. Moving one thing here and another there is fun and can give you a new feel in your home. I have moved my butler tray from my hall into my living room. I create a seasonal vignette on this table. Right now, I have a stitched piece that I made which looks like Dutch tiles sitting on an easel. I thought that Teddy looked just right with it since he is the same color as the gold in the stitching. My olive pot has a seasonal display of flowers.
But there was a good reason for making this change. I do not like this small wall as you just come into the living room. I wanted to do something to hide two eyesores. First, the plugs are now not as visible. I have a wooden dough bowl at the bottom of the butler tray. It too changes with the seasons but I keep a small set of white lights in it which looks pretty in the evenings.
Second is our heating thermostat. It is a large computer controlled plastic box which has yellowed with age. I have two hooks I am going to hang on each side to hang a quilt and disguise the thermostat. I have to have Jos help out as I need the hooks I have mounted on a piece of wood to bring them far enough from the wall so a quilt hangs in front of this ugly but needed control in house. Once this is done, I will not be so bothered by this wall.
