Changes-Using What I Have


A while back I put this shelf arrangement up on this small wall between the kitchen and familyroom.  I loved it, however every time my DH came in from outside and rounded the corner to the kitchen, he hit it with his shoulder.  It's very shallow, but since he hasn't gotten use to it being there, I finally decided it should come down.


This is one of a pair of paintings that I had hanging in the hall.  I decided simple was best, and DH can't hit it.


Love the frame on this picture and the little girl is just tooooo cute.


She has a bowl of milk for the kitty, and I think she's teasing him.


This is the other one that is still hanging in the hall.  Such a cute little girl reading to her dog.


  Hard to get a good picture with all the sun shining in all the windows.  Makes quite the glare.  For now I am liking the change.


I loved the pictures I had in the shelf arrangement, and decided that these two of the little girls on the farm would work on this small section of wall in the dining area.


I was trying to avoid the glare here also,  one is inspecting oranges and the other is gathering eggs.  Such cuties.

  1. Well, I'm all for anything the men-folk can't run into or knock off of something. :)

    By the way - I love North Carolina, having spent several weeks there earlier this year.

    Beautiful country.
    blessing to you - Marsha

  2. I Love what you did Marty! I had to do a similar thing in my powder room with a shallow shelf that my guys kept bumping! It's so nice to rearrange the inventory now and then. I ""LOVE"" your taste in pictures!!!
    Big Hugs,

  3. Menfolk are such bulls in a china shop, aren't they?! Your new pic arrangements are perfect! Sometimes that is all it takes is to rotate a few things around to give it a fresh look...and help with the economy crunch too, lol! Your home is SO wonderful, Marty!

  4. Hi Marty! You're so thoughtful to take down your lovely shelf for your hubby! He probably has bruises! :)
    I love your pretty picture and I think you're right - she must be teasing that kitty!
    You have some lovely artwork.
    be a sweetie,
    Shelia ;)

  5. Hi Marty, I always love seeing what you are doing in your nest. Beautiful art work-love paintings of little girls. I have one that isn't hung that is of two sisters having a tea party. I also have a plate that has two sisters on it.
    Thank you for sharing.
    Hugs, Noreen

  6. Hi Marty - I like the pre and post hubby wall layout ... now if you want him to have a project - you could have him re-do the wall and make a recessed set of shelves for you ... hahahaha - just kidding ... keep up the creative design ... it's always nice to keep the husband guessing . . . what will she do next.

    All the best - Katie

  7. Love your pictures and I know all about moving things so some certain someone will quit hitting things.

  8. Hi Marty,

    I loved your little shelf in the kitchen but do understand that sometimes we have to face reality. I had one too in my kitchen and I was the one who actually ran into it all the time...sure was cute though.

    I like your pictures in their new places too...they are precious! {Sometimes a girl has to do what she has to do, right?}

    By the way, I did a little snooping and saw all your gorgeous clocks on your wall. Have you posted about those before? If so, I must have missed it!! I collect clocks too and would be very interested in your story about them!

    Enjoy the rest of your week!

  12. I know exactly what you mean about that shelf Marty, I have one that I've now screwed firmly to the wall as I keep catching it! Love the changes - such adorable pictures.
    Best wishes

  13. I am always decorating around the hubby. That's why I have no shelves or pictures or anything in my hallway. I love that picture with the dog and girl. So sweet!

  14. I think it is always good to change things around, it gives a room a new look without spending any money. The last thing you wanted was for your DH to knock things off the shelf! The pictures look great in their "new" homes!

  15. I really like the changes! Looks great!

  18. It is nice to use what you have and although I love the arrangement on the wall -- the other makes more sense -- great job!

  19. Marty,
    I loved the shelf with all of the goodies on it but I can understand totally about your husband hitting it every time.

    The pictures are stunning and the one you placed there also looks wonderful!!

    Hugs,

  21. I like all of them, but I particularly like the pair with the girls, both the one hanging in place of the shelf and the other one. That's something like I would like here.

  24. Marty, those pictures are so sweet. I'm just so glad to know that somebody else's husband has the same problem as mine. I've had to change all of lot of shelves, etc., because he ran into them all of the time. What did you do with your pretty little shelf? laurie

  25. Every time I visit you, Marty, and see your loving home, I have to smile. My home and my clothing style are the same. I can NEVER quite accomplish the polished look. No matter...I just visit you!

  27. I loved how it was Marty and I think it looks great now too!
    You do have that touch girl!
    Can't wait to see you in July! Just wish I knew when but I am trying to make a plan around the time the baby arrives!
