New Colors and Goodies!

Hey guys! I hope you all had a fabulous weekend!! We have been busy getting stuff done at the new house, we installed a spring for the gate on the fence to the pool, put on locks for the cabinets and I painted a bedroom. 

Below is a picture of what the bedroom color used to look like. It was blue all over. I painted it Valspar- Cinncinatian Hotel Carl Tan. I am loving this color! It is a really nice neutral, I will be painting most of the downstairs with this color.

I did also do some shopping a few weeks ago, I brought these over here so we don't have to move them twice. I have some other things at my house that I bought that I will show you soon. I found these candle sconces for 17.99 I love the detail on them! I also found this cage for 4.99. I got both of them at Ross of course! LOL


Here's a close up of the sconces, sorry for the poor quality photo I had to put the flash on to get a good picture of the detail that is on them.

Here's a close up of the cage, it's a pretty sage green.


Well, that's it for today guys! I am sorry I haven't been around much to visit all of you or post anything. This month is going to be very busy! 

Have a great week!

Hi Allyson, Hope you are well and getting your moving chores on the way!I love the colors and the Valspar name of paint sounds very familiar. It is rich and fresh and will go with your great decor. I love your sconces and other finds. We have to get to a Ross.....not near me or a regular area we shop, too bad.Valspar is a top quality paint for a long time. Take it easy and be careful lifting heavy stuff, I moved our couch last Fall to make room for a new one and still hurting....my leg. Thanks for sharing, Emelia.

The new color looks like such a nice neutral backdrop to display your lovely things. Love the birdcage! What a steal! Thanks for sharing.

Allyson, I love your new paint color. It is so warm and inviting and will look FABULOUS with all your things.

Guess what? I was at Ross today and I picked up those scones to buy them, but ended up putting them back. Darn, now I wish I would have bought them. I have that bird cage, too! We have such similar taste.

Can't wait to see you put your touch on that beautiful house.

Lots of ((Hugs)) and Love,
Liz

Gypsy Heart said...

The new paint color is really nice! You always score at Ross...and honestly, I can never find anything there. Must be our area ~ :-(

Don't work too hard!

Very pretty finds Ally! I too love that bird cage. :)

Allyson- I guess I have fallen far behind and didn't know you were moving! Your new wall color looks excellent, reminds me a bit of what I did I my kitchen recently. I picked up two metal wall sconces nearly identical to yours but with a Fleur-de-Lis motif. Looks like you are cozying up the place real nice!

Moving certainly isn't for the faint-of-heart, but it's fun, too. I think I must have missed the news, but did you buy a new house and are you still going to be in the Phoenix area? We are due to close on our new house on the 18th, but still haven't sold this one. We do want to start moving a few things over to the new house (it's in Gilbert) & get beds for the guest room so we have a place to sleep when we do drive over. I think our house has close to that same paint color. The previous owner was in the middle of painting when we looked at it and decided to buy. Part of the deal was that he would finish painting. Anyway, good luck with your move.

On a side note, a couple of us who are AZ bloggers are talking about getting any & all other AZ bloggers together this fall for a lunch or dinner at some fairly neutral location. Would you be interested?

Allyson,

I love the wall color and the finds are GREAT! Is that the bedroom?

BTW, I went to Ross last night and found a tapestry, but the art is different. I didn't take a picture b/c my battery on my phone died (boo!). I will stop by today and email you!

Love, love, love the wall color!!
