This is one of those busy weeks we have now and then. Besides preparing a couple of rooms for the Summer Showcase of Homes, we have appointments.
As you may recall, J’s Spring appointment with his neurologist went very well and he thought he would not be returning until May 2014. Not long after that appointment, we received a letter informing us the neurologist J was seeing has retired.
We decided it would be a good idea to meet a new neurologist, rather than wait until next Spring. It will be good to get acquainted with the new doctor and see what his thoughts are on the treatment of Parkinson’s Disease. That appointment is this week.
In other news…
When I was recovering from the “plague”, last month, J called the local furniture store and ordered another bird lamp for the foyer table. It was a very nice get well gift.
I tried a variety of vignettes using the one bird lamp and was never quite satisfied with any of the arrangements. I believed a second lamp was needed to complete the look I was going for.
It has been a year or two since I bought the first bird lamp. I knew when the second one was ordered, there was an off chance the lamps would not be perfectly matched. However, I need not have worried. The lamps, from Uttermost, are wonderful together and this look is exactly right for our entry.
A tray of Lavender buds completes the foyer table vignette. The table was ordered from the same local furniture store, a couple of years ago. The print, also purchased from Troy Furniture, is Uttermost.
The basket on the lower shelf is Pottery Barn. The dried and silk arrangement is from The Flower Petaler, South Main St., St Charles MO.
I fluffed the front porch a tad, this morning. I don’t know how long the Pothos will be on the chair. The afternoon sun can be pretty unrelenting. I imagine the plant will be happier on the shadier back porch. But, for now, it looks pretty in the pictures for this post.
Now I must publish this post and pop a peach cobbler in the oven. While it’s baking, there is furniture to be rearranged and vignettes to complete in the hearth room.
