Confessions of a Hoarder

So what do you think of when you think of 'hoarders'?? I think of the obvious. Ms. Delta Burke. Naturally! But today, I've made a revelation. Well, to be fair, this revelation has been in the works for years, starting around 2007-8 when I began to make my wedding registry...
My dear friends, Sash and Laura, were going through my registry at Crate and Barrel and had an intervention with me. I already had filled Jimmy's house to the brim with little whoohauts and heezils, and still had registered for about 10 different candle holders! They insisted that I take them off the registry. I did - but it didn't stop my problem. I'm afraid that they were right. I have wayyy too many candleholders! I have been so good, but again I find myself drawn to them over and over again! See my collection... I should let you know that it is a bit beyond my control. Kee has been brainwashing Cover and I since little tikes. Cover is now showing signs of hoarding as well. Mom has admitted to her overabundance, and is in the healing stages of the same hoarding disorder. But I appear to continue to hoard. See these beauts I bought today from Pottery Barn: Don't peek in my extra closet...

It reminds me of AtHome in Homewood near my house! Click on the pictures to see them up close, I love everything in this store!! Time to take a trip back home...

My adorable sister got me the BEST wedding present..... A custom painted piece of art from a good Pensacola friend of ours, Sarah Soule Webb! I adore it, she did a photo from our honeymoon-- a picture of the Duomo in Florence Italy (see my pictures below from the same vantage point!) I most likely will get a dark rustic wood frame, but thought I'd tease around with the idea of a lighter wood frame... what do you think??? Here are both below.
Lighter frame:
Darker frame:
What do you think? This is our front door 'foyer', very small but you can see the painting when you are sitting in our living room.

Tada Table!

So last weekend I was inspired....despite Holland (and Cover) both giving me a TV mount for our bedroom (see previous post)... the quotes for us to mount our TV and speakers, which were wider than the space available, would be ~$500!!! So I decided it would be best to just bite the bullet and get a TV-table. And I was so lucky! I walked into Hannah's Antiques downtown Birmingham and found this fabulous table... It is an old singer sewing table that is castiron with white marble on top. See below my transformation! I painted the legs a grey color to go with my Duh theme.. my favorite store in Pensacola Don't you love it??

Thankfully - we were able to rig the deck without major work done, and we added a beautiful doggie-door that Piper just loves running through!!
