Two days of sun here in the (usually) frigid north.
Maybe this is it?
Every year I am so gullible, thinking "this is it", meaning the Nordic weather is over, well before I should.
As I've already had two false "starts" this season, perhaps third time is the charm?
I was just checking flower beds and am pleased to see my perennials peeking up. While it will be weeks before I can safely add annuals, I am already daydreaming of trips to the nursery.
Of course, there is a downside to all this sunshine, pouring in through my windows...
All the work yet to do in bringing our (shudder) brass filled home into sync with modern decor is glowingly evident.
Which means....time for more shopping!
I've recently been introduced to a new online stores to help me on my quest!
Cymax ~ with over 100 specialty stores ~ I can browse for every room in the house, and for my outdoor needs, as well!
While I'm hunting for the perfect additions for each room, you are welcome to join me and we'll finish up with a Cymax scavenger hunt, giving my readers a chance to win a Cymax Gift Certificate for their own shopping needs!
After just clearing from breakfast, I think the perfect place to start is at DiningFurniture.com!
So many choices in Buffet Servers! I love the old world look of this one from Pulaski Furniture of Virginia! With wrought iron (no brass!) accents, deep carmel finish and marble top, it would be an excellent piece for a Tuscan look!
While I do tend to gravitate to the classic Old World look, this time I do think I want to go for the cleaner, edgy look of modern pieces.
Take an adoring look at this piece from the China Cabinets shop! The sharp clean lines of this American Drew piece, from the Bob Mackie Signature Collection is simply stunning! With distinctive rosewood, what a fabulous addition it would make in my dining room, highlighting my treasures! Better yet, it's on SALE! 30% off, with free delivery and set up!
Take a look around and share with me in a comment your favorite China Cabinet or Buffet Server.(HINT: It will be handy at the end of the scavenger hunt!)
