Please...Come In.

Thought you gals may enjoy seeing what hits ya the minute you step into Beagle Run Cottage.  I did buy my sconces and hung them and put battery candles into them.  I cleaned up the console top and can show it off now.

Keepin' it real for ya'll!! 
This is what happens when we are running around like crazy.  Can ya'll see that those boys feet are as big as mine now.  It is hard to tell who's is who's except for pink and flowers now!!  LOL!

Sconce Love!! 
What is it about the Acanthus leaf details.  Was it not enough that the frame and the wallpaper had the busy details.  I love that these anchor my picture.  A dear friend gave me the print and I love it.  It starts the bunny hunt right up at Beagle Run Cottage.  I got these out and hung them myself without hubby being involved.  Then I straightened up in here so I could take pictures for ya'll.

Looking at this print reminds me that I have a cabbage plate I could put up here to trade out with the Faith Hope Love piece.  You gals can see that my beloved console needs some love.  I'm soooo torn...do I paint it out or sand and re-stain.  Hubby loves the burled details.  If money was hanging on a tree out back I'd pay someone to make me a marble top!!  I like to trade out the fabric runners from season to season.  Looks like I should take away the spring bird theme and do something different for Summer.
I even decorated the air return and thermostat across from the console.  I got the watercolor dogwood piece from Mother In Laws neighbor because Hubby proposed on the dogwood trail 17 years ago.  Even the frame looks like dogwood blossoms.  And, I love those hair pin trays I found a few years ago antiquing locally.

Hope you enjoyed my tour of the front entry.  I'm blessed to have a nice little entry room to my home.  I'll do some more straightening so I can show off more.
