*Always Tweaking*

Hey guys!! I am so sorry I haven't posted in forever! I couldn't find my camera charger for a few weeks, I finally found it today so I will start posting regularly again. I have changed around some accessories on my desk, so I thought I would share it with you all.

***Desk Changes***
I kept the top mainly the same, I just moved the big initial P up there and removed a topiary.

I found this tuscan plate at Big Lots for 6.99, I love it!! I showed you the last time I posted this small little arrangement I made.

Here's an up close picture of the plate. If you haven't been to Big Lots to check out their decor you must go especially if you like Tuscan decor.

I was having a problem with this small shelf, I didn't really like anything I had put on it, so I just used one of my little boxes and added some ivy to it. I felt the bookcase needed some greenery. I am happy with it now.

 I moved my leopard trunk that I had in the kitchen to here. I love having book boxes and trunks around for storage.

I left this arrangement the same, love fleur de lis! :)

Here's a closer picture of the top of the desk. Of course I had to bring a roo in here. :) For some reason the wall color is showing up pink, I assure you it is not pink! It is the same neutral I have used throughout the house must be the lighting..

Well that's it for today guys, I know this was a short post! I will be back in a few days to show you my kitchen changes. Thanks for sticking around! 
I hope you all have a great week.

Hey sweet thing, I love how you have everything arranged. Guess what, I have the very same Roo. I have the large version and a smaller version I just got last week at Ross. It looks very classy and elegant, you did a great job! I was so happy when I saw your post. Ok, now get going on your fall stuff....I need ideas, girl!!

Hugs and Love, ~Liz

Hey there! It's good to see you posting again. I like the changes you've made to the desk. You've got lots of nice pretties. The greenery is a nice touch.
You know what? I have the same ceramic trinket box shown in your second photo! I found it at my fav place, Hobby Lobby on the clearance aisle. ;)I look forward to seeing more. Happy to hear you found your camera charger!

Looks great! I'm always moving things around, too. Thanks for sharing.

Ally I'm glad to see you back posting. It seems we have both been posting less along with many others. The summer does that to us.

It all looks beautiful. The new plate looks good along with the boxes.

Warmly, ~Melissa

Sandra said...

Ally, now I know where you got that beautiful plate! I love it! It is sooo pretty - the animal print looks great w/it and I can't get that plate out of my head...I guess I'll make a trip to Big Lots...wish me luck! :)

Hi Allyson, Love your purchases. I have to find these stores also. The Tuscan plate is beautiful and you made the display so classy....to borrow Liz's thought!The iron piece is a great unifying touch. I don't own any of them and think I could use them over doorways and entrances.Thanks for the post...keep cool!!!!

Melissa Miller said...

Ally thanks for the kind visit and for displaying my new button.
I grabbed yours too! Your blog looks pretty.

Warmly, ~Melissa

Melissa Miller said...

Hey Ally,
My new button was messed up and has been fixed now. Can you come by and pick up my new one to display? Sorry for the trouble.

Thanks! ~Melissa

Nice to have you back, Ally. The desk looks great! I, too, have that same "Roo" in my new kitchen. I just did a post of my kitchen reveal a few days ago & didn't realize just how many "rooster things" I've collected in just the last year or so. But that's a good thing, right...lol!

I really like all of the decorations you have on your desk. I have just about the same things somewhere in my decor.

Melissa Miller said...

Thanks for the kind emails Ally!

Becca said...

What fun, Allyson! I love what you've done ... your tweaking paid off, for sure. The roo is too cute ... love the fleur-de-lis and the Tuscan touches!

Kim said...

Looks so beautiful Allyson. Where did you get that little giraffe print jar? So pretty! I'll have to check out Big Lots - one just opened up around the corner.
