Fluff here....Fluff there....Everywhere Fluff Fluff

Many times when I start cleaning a room,
I start thinking "something new"......
Nothing NEW here......
just changing places with a couple of tables...
that's it.

I really love this candle holder.
I found it one day on a CLEARANCE table and
have loved it ever since.
Yep, I like this table in this spot for A  CHANGE.
♥ ♥ ♥

 


 Not a LOT of difference, granted....just enuf to give it a fresher feel.
NOW.......for the glass topped table......
1.  Too SHORT for the large, wide pictures of THE ROOSTERS.
2.  UGLY table and waaay too LIGHT looking.
 Looks like it might float OFF just any minute.
BUMMER......
(I bought this little metal table with the really thick glass for $16.00 at GoodWill)
OK, let's see what we can do here because I am wanting
TO USE THAT OTHER TABLE in the spot behind my sage love seat.
and my SOCIAL SECURITY budget doesn't allow for a new, pretty table.
.....maybe I'll find one at the thrift....
stranger things have happened.
NOTHING I can do to make it longer...
and
no other wall space for the ROOSTERS to hang out.....
 ...hmmm,
maybe if I add HEAVY looking things....BIG things.
Well, this is looking FAIRLY good but it still looks like it could MOVE UPWARD.
 I remembered some of the things our creative friend, KIM, over at SAVVY SOUTHERN STYLE
does with cute pillows....
and altho THIS is not a bench,
just two little upholstered stools from BIG LOTS,
I put the long pillow I bought from Kirklands not long ago
on the little stools....
I do believe it helped GROUND that lightweight table....do you?
A BIGGER greenery arrangement.....
Yep...I like it.
Little plain tables, just changing their spaces and their dress....
MAKES  ME  HAPPY

I  sure do thank you for putting up with all my moving things around here and there.
Like most of you .......
     I JUST LOVE TO NEST !!
                          AND.....................

Hi, bj! That's the trouble with cleaning...it always lead to redecorating! I end up rearranging something and then I run out of time for the important things like bathrooms! lol! And I recognize something familiar! Looks great!

Loretta said...

Great Fluffing...love the glass table now! Hugs

Linda @ A La Carte said...

I'm lovin' the table under the roosters! The greenery and the pillows really make it look beautiful!

Vee said...

Oh we all love to putter and fluff. I need to do more around here, but it is not going to happen any time soon. You could make anything work anywhere. I'm convinced of it!

Shirley said...

Hi Bj, I do love your fluffing. I like your glass table with how you decorated. I enjoyed the previous post. I am taking a little me time and reading. Take care. Your Missouri Friend.

Korrie Bastian said...

Very pretty, BJ! Good for you for being able to look at things with a fresh eye.

NanaDiana said...

Hey Bj~ I just realized that for some reason you dropped off my dashboard (when you do a new post). I hate when this kind of thing happens.

Anyway~ I think that the way you bulked up the table really helps a lot. It isn't so lightweight looking now.

I hope you have a great night- xo Diana

Kim @ Savvy Southern Style said...

Always fun to switch things up for a new look. Of course I never change anything.

Debbiedoo's said...

It works for you Bj, it really does work. One thing always leads to another.

Yvonne @ StoneGable said...

Now you can come over to my house and rearrange my furniture to look as good as yours... and clean too!
Your glass table looks fabulous under the rooster prints!

Marydon said...

I'm with Yvonne ... c'mon over BJ!

Love the table draped with that gorgeous runner. Your home is just lovely.
Have a great week ~
TTFN ~
Hugs,

Oh B.J I just love coming here(think I have told you that about 1,000 times now) Isn't it fun to fluff..I can not imagine not doing it!!!! Have a great Mothers Day..xoxo

Pondside said...

That just looks great, BJ. Fluffing is such a good word for what you've done there. Unfortunately, the only fluffing at my house is taking place under the furniture where the dust fluff is multiplying.

They look great BJ! I don't do much moving things around, but it sure looks like fun:@)

Lisa~A Cottage To Me said...

You Fluff good bj! you've got a great eye for shopping your home and changing things up. It's fun to do, I know!

Theresa said...

Love the changes! It is amazing how you changed the table under the rooster pics by adding the weight both on and under! Brilliant! Have a blessed day my friend, HUGS!

Sharing Shadymont said...

Love your changes BJ! I'm the same way. My tables move around all the time! Great job!

Patty Patterson said...

I need to shop for something new. But - it seems like I find the cutest things when I'm not looking for them, so I've pretty much given up the chase. I never really thought of rummaging through the house to see what I could move!

Madeline's Album said...

You have quite a knack for moving things around and they always look terrific when you are finished. Have a blessed day. Madeline

It's funny how just moving thibgs around can change the whole look and feel of a room and lighten our mood!!! Love what you did, the smaller table looks much better with the larger arrangement on it and the big lantern, perfect! Love the oak table behind the love seat and LOVE that runner!!! XO, Pinky

"Auntie" sezzzzzz... said...

You have so much fun, doing these things! It's wonderful!!!!!

Happy To Be/ Gl♥ria said...

Love Of Quilts said...

Great Fluffing. I love the rooster pictures.

Jan Davis said...

Hello BJ....I've heard decorators say "don't buy more; use what you have." It's true that most of the things we need to give a space a new look is right in our own homes. You certainly did a great job of finding those things and moving them to the right places. Wish you were here to help me move my stuff around! I just love to do that..especially on rainy days, like today. Be blessed...Jan

It's been a while since I've been able to stop by ):~ I forgot what neat posts you always have!
I'll try not to be such a stranger!

Bj, I love your runner on that table. Mine has been put away until Fall, but I didn't think of putting it on the sofa table. My, my..I just might have to do that~!
:) I love the basket with the matchng liner beneath the table. Still looking. I just get in a rush to run my mouth to you! :)
Hugs!

On Crooked Creek said...

BJ,
Oh, I'm loving those pillows and that ruffled table runner! Change is good. If you're like me, dear friend, it'll change again soon!
Fondly,
Pat

Kathleen Grace said...

It looks great! I often freshen up by moving things around. If we can be happy with what we have when so many others have so little, it's a blessing:>)

Ann said...

Yes the big flower arrangement balanced it all out. The pillow underneath is the perfect width. I love movin stuff too.

Ivy and Elephants said...
