Thursdays Must Be For Random Posts

Just a few things today...
I recently received 2 books in the mail that I'm really enjoying. (If you don't know this already, I am a magazine and book junkie...mostly decorating and crafting kinds...well, or cooking)
First up....
This book is filled with great ideas for repurposing...like sconces made from baking pans
pillows using crocheted pot holders....

and even lamps made from aluminum thermos bottles...

more cleverness...

The other book is Romantic Style...a book filled with lots of dreamy room settings.
When I saw this picture...

it made me look at my own sofa in the family room...all dressed for summer...






and my mantle birdies...
The little guy on the far right was made by my dear friend MaryLou and can be found in her Etsy shop right here...her things are so cute and I couldn't resist him!
another birdie with writing purchased at a local shop

I'm not thrilled with my mantle arrangement right now...any suggestions?
 I think I need a mirror or tall painting behind everything....it's all too "even".

Birds everywhere!

Have a lovely Thursday....random or not!
xoxo
Joyce

Hi Joyce...I finally found some time to get back to my blog visiting.
Those books look great, especially the Rediscovered Treasures. Ooohh...that one looks so good!
Your sofa looks good too....right out of the pages of a magazine! Oh and I love those green checked chairs...so springy!
Your birdies are so cute. My favorites are the two with writing.
ML is so creative. I've been tempted to buy one of her birds for myself. I've been watching for a red one!

The mantle looks very nice and I think you're right...a big mirror would make it look even better. Maybe one with a thick black frame. If you add something to the mantle make sure you share photos!!
