Miss Bessie


One of my favorite finds from Antique Week was this charming old cow from a 1950's Nativity scene. 

She sits on top of a cool piece that I bought from Seed Box Antiques. 
It was intended to be a kitchen island, but I thought it was better suited to go in our dining room. 
 For Christmas I am planning to fill the bottom with gym baskets full of old Christmas balls and use the top as a buffet.
Oh, and add a bell to Bessie!

Ella Elaine Studio Progress

 I am making some headway in the EE Studio Redo.
Visit my before pics at my Clean-out Post.

Clearing the "path"  was at the top of my to do list. 

New technology and old walls just don't go together for me. 
I found an extra piece of the boards and made it where it would swivel over the outlet.
 (Mr. Ella rolled his eyes at this idea, but I love it:)

After I took the first photo, I thought the thermostat needed to hide under my little nest painting...

The last touch I added was using vintage wallpaper to cover the light switch. 

Now, I have to get back to work! 
More snippets of studio progress soon...

On the shelves

 Fall is the bestest time to find joy in decorating!

Just take 15 min. or less a day to gather some of your found objects together. 
 In a couple of weeks
 you will be ready to invite your friends over for coffee...

Okay, it's here!
  Leaf crunching, chili cooking, go apple picking time!

Make something pumpkin -y, roast marshmallows, 
go on a hayride time!

Eat candy corn, make a hearty soup,
 roast pumpkin seeds time!

Drink hot cider, learn how to can, get lost in a corn maze time!

Play dominoes, paint your Picasso under a tree, 
and stop by ACM to decorate for Fall time!
