Midsummer Plus One

Join Susan at Between Naps on the Porch for some wonderful Metamorphosis Monday posts....
This little side table isn't well appropriated and the colors don't match each other or the room. However, it looks much neater than it did a few hours ago... See?
I was getting ready for a Midsummer's Night candle-light movie, but after I re-arranged and had a little cup of hot cocoa... I fell to sleep in my chair. Here I am at a quarter to four... I think I'll catch a nap in a few minutes. Busy day of doctoring and driving ahead.

I bought this on a road trip with Lisa from Cranberry Flats and another dear friend a long time ago in a shop no longer in existence. I think it's supposed to be a Christmas piece, but I love having it lit at night beside my television. I even sprung for 300 tea lights online... Yep... With six at a time, that is gonna go fast!
This is the before shot while my son and I were moving stuff around... The pink legs on the table are cute to me because my gramma painted her kitchen cabinets and table/chairs pink. What spunk! However, storage is at a premium as I try to crowd my whole world into one room, so I am opting for a longer skirt and a storage basket/suitcase thing underneath... See?

Well... guess you don't see! Haha... The burgundy tablecloth goes to the ground, but my camera shot didn't!

Happy Summer. Stay cool if you are in our Zone of Extreme heat and heat index. Keep your fingers crossed for my ancient AC... It is a window unit off my bedroom. The rest of Mom's house is all on a central unit, but it doesn't extend to this room because it is an add-on, make-over garage thing. Have a good week.

I think it is wonderful you are living with your mom to help take care of her.

I dress up lots of things with quilts! Made a lot of them over the years. They make everything look just a little cozier.

I love the blue votive holders in your candlabra. Weren't they red at Christmas that year? I love the blue, you're making me want to find some in blue too!!Our A/C is on the blink and it's not even 2.5 years old yet. I hope the warranty covers it. I hope things don't happen in 3s...

I love the pink on the table! Sweet. That thing does look Christmasish but it's I think it's versatile lol.

All the best,
