A Little Summer Pizazz

Sunday, June 21, 2015

There wasn't enough red in this room!

No really, my mission wasn't to add more red in the keeping room, even though red is my favorite color.  I just thought it would be nice to have a little color in front of the fireplace opening and that's when something in my stash came to mind.  So in came more red.

There was another change too.
This small table was between the two red chairs in the keeping room, but no more.

A basket full of red geranium adds a little summer pizazz to the fireplace.

The small table was replaced with one made from sewing machine drawers.
I burn candles until there's nothing left and as you can see...this one is almost finished!

I love it when things from the stash can be used and think it looks much better with flowers than just the black opening, don't you?

Thanks so much for coming by, your visits and sweet comments make my day!

Hope you have a wonderful weekend and hope to see you back for AMAZE ME MONDAY!

  6. I love that table of sewing machine drawers!...Such a unique piece...and the geraniums look great in the fireplace to add such beautiful color!

  7. I already loved the red chairs and the geraniums look great with them. And that table is awesome!

  8. What a cute idea to add some flowers to the fireplace! That's a perfect way to fill it with color and beauty when it's way too hot outside to even think about an actual fire.

  9. Red is my favorite color and your geraniums add the perfect touch!
