A Haven for Vee

Home is Where the Heart Is

First of all, thank you so much to all those who offered a suggestion on yesterday's post. Yes, we'd love to have it sided in a different color, but it's not going to happen this year. Discussions have already begun about trellises; unfortunately, there's no room for flowers. Not only that, but they'd have next to zero sun. Birdhouses! I'd love them but they'd have to be fake. This spot is very small and I don't want to share with that many birds. You've definitely sparked my imagination!

Remember the tip from Penny yesterday about carrying color through? Here's a little picture story that will tell about my current project.

home is where the heart is sign (a gift from my mother at my aunt's suggestion and I've always loved it)

We have a lot of black about and I do like it a lot. Should I carry it through to the sign?

Please forgive the laundry on the backs of chairs, but a better overall view.

Just in case I'm going to redo the same font...

Too late now!

Check back tomorrow and I promise I'll show you what it looks like. It may be vile.

Have a great Friday!


  1. Hi Vee - always good to repeat colors. I think it would look good in black - your sign. The light fixture is right there by it, too. I love black. It gives every other color contrast and in ART, contrast is what it's all about!

  2. I know it will be beautiful! Have fun! ♥

  3. According to TLC, (When we still got it), black is essential to ground every room. Can't wait to see the finished project.

    Thanks for so kindly visiting Bee. She is going to do so very well...as she can write, write and write!

  4. Of course it won't be vile! Silly girl! :-)

    Memorial Day Weekend, may it be well, with you.

  5. I think it is going to look great. Have a wonderful weekend.

  6. I'm really liking black accessories right now - so I think it'll look wonderful and I SOOOO love your lfags banners!!

  7. It couldn't possibly be vile! Looking forward to seeing what you've done!

  8. Oh you are funny! I'll be back tomorrow...for sure. Black is good.

  9. Vee, I have enjoyed catching up and reading about all that's been going on. Loved the mirror in the garage. Always love learning new things about my blog friends (thanks, Brenda, for the open-ended questions.) I LOL-ed at your early Memorial Day post -- that is so something that I would do. And I thought your Scent of Water post just beautiful... really thoughtfully written.

    My daughter is the really red redhead in the ballet pics. If you click on them, you can see her better.


  10. I am reading these posts in the order they are written....late as usual. Now I can't wait to see the next post!


If comments disappear, please don't fret. A simple "hi" will do. The platform surely needs some maintenance.
