THANK YOU, LUCY BLOOM..(I LOVE that name!!)

GOOD, GOOD MORNING, BLOGGER FRIENDS........

I've been needing to add SOMETHING....something JUST right, on the end of my mantle in my DINING room but I didn't want to BUY something new.....

.....I've walked from room to room, searching for that SOMETHING....just couldn't find a thing that would work in that spot...

...and every time I walked into my dining room, I kept kicking this silly cake stand that I had sitting on the floor because I couldn't find a place for it when I didn't have some pretty foods to put on it....DUH !!!!!



**************************************************



THEN......along came LUCY BLOOM with her precious ideas and pictures and.......
WALLA.....there was a FABULOUS idea.....and ......I had this cake stand that I can NEVER FIND A PLACE FOR.......

Isn't this soooo pretty, holding the lovely bowls? It looks as if it were made just to hold these fabulous finds.......

Here's my version of Lucy's good idea.................


Altho I don't have the pretty, floral bowls Lucy has.....does my TEAPOT look ok here until I can find some beauties like LUCY'S ??


I hope it looks ok because now I have a place for my CAKE STAND AND MY TEAPOT!

.....that teapot can go somewhere else just as soon as I can come up with some lovely bowls or such but .......

...isn't this a GREAT idea that LUCY BLOOM had!!!!


I LOVE the way the mantle looks with the new addition...

..(sorry that you have to cock your head to the side to see this picture very good...don't have a clue why it is so crooked....it MUST be the camera!) :o)

Ladies, be sure to go over and see LUCY'S lovely blog (she is on my blog roll)

....her blog is just full of the most beautiful things and lots and lots and lots of PINK and ROSES...... You will enjoy every minute of looking at it all.

If you will, please tell her I sent you!


YIPEEEEE.....IT'S FRIDAY ! I hope your weekend is just full of wonderfulness !!

Good morning BJ! I think your cake stand looks really great, and one of the best things about the inspiration we get on other peoples blogs is the way we can personalize those ideas to make them our own. You always seem to take ideas you see and make them work wonderfully for you:>) Have a happy friday!

It looks fabulous, and I love the teapot on the stand. I wouldn't change a thing.

Hey- that cake stand idea IS a great idea! I have one around somewhere too. Maybe I'll find a place to put it to use....

We have very similar tastes- I love red toile, black accents and am planning on painting my house yellow!

Hi BJ!
I love the cake stand on your mantle and the teapot is adorable on it, what a clever idea! I love repurposing things I already have to get a new look. Sometimes it's nice to just "shop" at home!

Hello BJ!!! I wanted to come by and say thank you for visiting my blog today and leaving such kind comments about my jewelry! Your cake stand design is really great! I am LOADED with china and cake stands too, so being able to use them as decor when not in use is a good thing! Have a wonderful weekend! xoxo ~ Joy
