Architectural Embelishments


Hi all! Just a quick post today. I spent 3+ hours at the dentist yesterday! I know it sounds like I don't have any teeth but I do. LOL! All of a sudden I started having issues which required two root canals, three crowns etc. So this is just a quick check in to say that I will be back Friday for the Rooster Party and the Tasha Tudor day.




But I wanted to show you this cute architechural swag that I found a few weeks ago at TJ Maxx for $9.99! I plan on using it in my Blue Toile Room - just haven't decided where yet

dental work is not only a pain in the mouth, but a pain in the patootie as well.....so sorry; I hate going to the dentist! See you soon.

Hi Manuela! That will be such a pretty addition in your lovely room.
Hope you are feeling better. Dentists are never any fun.
Loved seeing your gardening in the last post, too.

I can handle most any illness or pain except those that involve my mouth or teeth so I am really feeling for you. I hope the procedures went smoothly and that you are now on the road to a speedy and pain free recovery :0)
Hugs.
Love the swag

I'm just kind of getting familiar with those architectural embellishments since Carpenter Robert introduced them to me on my fireplace. I really like them! Adds a lot of character. Hope your teeth feel better.

I'd rather give birth than deal with teeth issues - I'm so sorry that you are having to go through that!!!

Hope you feel all better soon and I love your latest treasure - beautiful!!!

Its beautiful, Manuela. I love swags and garlands, they add such interest to a room.

Merrie said...

TJ Maxx? Really! I am going to have to go check them out next time we are running errands.
Years ago, we used to have to go to arcitectural salvage in Kansas City for things like that.
How nice that things like this are becoming easier to find.
Hope you get to feeling better soon.

Gorgeous pieces! I cannot wait to see how you use it!

I just became a reluctant member of the sisterhood of breast cancer. I plan to stay active with my blogging friends, but wanted you to understand why I might be hit and miss more than usual!

Nancy said...

Hope you're feeling better today! Neat finds...they will look so nice in your home.

Sorry your dental trip ended up with a lot more time and $ involved than you planned...hope you are feeling better very soon. I love the embelishments. How do you apply them to the furniture? glue or little nails? I believe I have seen some at Ross. I didn't know what to do with them then but later got ideas! :) Glad you grabbed these when you saw them...they would be gone if you went back looking for them. Im still hoping you will find a fourth chair cover. :) Your home looks always sooo pretty and you keep coming up with moneysaving beautiful ideas! You sure have me looking at my things differently and thinking how I can repurpose them. Thanks!! :) Jody

I love pieces like that and am always on the lookout for them. It will be perfect in your room. Hope you are doing ok and not in a lot of pain!

Sue said...

Oh no not root canal!! there is nothing worse except the cost!! Be on the mend real soon...

Jenni @ nest to keep said...

That is so pretty, and at such a fantastic price, too! I sure hope you are feeling better! Isn't the whole root canal/crown fitting thing exhausting? I came home and slept every time afterward! I am saying a little prayer for you that you will recover quickly and soon get a nice long break from the dentist! :)
Take care,
Jenni

Michelle said...

I love TJMaxx and always find something there. Cute swag!

Shelia said...

Poor Manuela, I'm so sorry for all the dental problems you've been having. I truly understand as I have spent half my life in the dentist's chair. I hope you feel better soon.
I love that piece. It looks like an antique.
Be a sweetie,

shelia ;)
