Something whimsical?

I love to visit Kelee at The Katillac Shack
and I wrote on 'this post' answering a question,
"What is the funniest object you own and why does it make you smile?"

I immediately thought about the turtle on the rock...
that is ALWAYS in my living room.

I walked down to the creek where I lived
several years ago and I've carried it with me on every move.
I really do like the idea of something whimsical in every room.
I would love to find a mobile or Japanese lantern for my bedroom
....one of these days.

Here are some photos of the living room in our new condo.

"Welcome"





Of course I have already changed everything
on the bookcase since I took these pics yesterday! lol
(and I'm sure I'll change them a few more times
before I am satisfied!)

I can't let you go without a view of the mountains!

Enjoy your day!

Thank you. I sat in the little red chair near the window. But I puffed up the cushions before I left. And I love the view of the mountains.
Have a great weekend.

Hi Diane,

Oh - goodness - your new condo is beautiful and the view is breathtaking. Looks like you have a great start on your decorating -LOL- knowing you - you will have your home re-arranged several times. Just like playing house - how fun it is to arrange and then re-arrange.
Have a wonderful week.
Blessings, Erin
P.S. - I love your turtle.
