Awkward Space Update for Summer

Do you remember my Awkward Space?
Well, it got a little update for summer
with a few yard sale finds.

First I changed the flowers
from the tulips to the lilies.

Then I added this cute little lamp which was a yard sale find.

And at the same yard sale I also found
this wonderfully long cloth that covered both bookcases
and gave it a softer look.
It always surprises me how just a few simple things can change a look.

~Finding the amazing in the simple~
Thanks so much for stopping by!

  2. Alana...your little corner looks so bright & cheery! Love the lamp find!
    I am also pretty happy about your new fire pit area..those upturned planters are very cool!

    Enjoy your weekend.

  9. HI Alana, I always love it when people change things up for the seasons because I am so boring about things like that. Once I find a way I like I hate to change it and it always looks the same in here. I should try some of your ideas. Thanks for stopping to comment at Quirky Vistas about my rain photos! I do appreciate it.
