Found New Wall Accessories For Florida Home

I have been in FL for our family reunion celebrating my mom's 95th birthday. Everybody is gone now so I can concentrate on more decorating.
 
I finally found a mirror I like for the foyer. I like the rustic look and the texture of the wood and the other materials used. As usual, I found it at Joss and Main while vacationing in Utah, Yes, I shop on line even while on vacation, lol.
 


I also like that the wood has a little tinge of orange, to blend with the orange postage on the table,

 
I love the details!


I also found a numbered and signed Salvador Dali lithograph titled "The Doctor", for the living room.

 
She is not very obvious but I like the nun on the right side of the picture.



I still need a big picture for that big wall above the sofa but I just have not found one I like yet. If I can stay here longer, I can paint one but I need to get back to Natchez. I am worried about my plants. Also, AJ is going there for a visit with a classmate.
 
 


 Here is another picture I placed on the dining room wall. We bought it in Utah, saw it in a street art festival. It is a photograph of different doors taken in South America, I believe, Ecuador.

 
I like how colorful they are.





Do you see the little hallway on the right? It is leading to the master bedroom.

 
I brought the mirrored wood carvings from our home in Natchez. Actually I asked my friends who drove from Natchez and visited me here a few months ago, to bring them. They used to be hanging on either side of the TV in the family room.
I also brought my wood carved St. Anthony santos statue from there. I always pray to him whenever I lose something and he never fails me.


I bought this hand carved Madonna and Child from an antique store in Natchez.
Lastly, I just want to show you the orchid I got from the farmer's market here. It had no blooms when I bought it over a week ago and look at it now! I leave all the orchids out in the screened porch  when I go to Natchez and so far, they have been doing well without Tina having to water them.
Thanks again for coming by and for all your comments. They are always appreciated. Thanks also to the hostesses of the memes I am linking with. I really appreciate you all too.

Your home is coming along beautifully. I really love the mirror and the cabinet below it. And your dining room is so pretty!

I know you can paint the perfect picture for your wall above the sofa...it will have to be BIG, but I know you can do it! :)

I'm already loving lots of things in your new house Chris! I love the rug, the picture the dining set, the living room and how your decor is coming along, overall. Every time is getting warmer and warmer and so inviting! Well, maybe you can start with your new BIG painting and finish it off another time, this way you will have just the size and the look you wish...like custom made, lol.. Big hugs,
FABBY

Your colors are stunning. I love them even though those are not the ones I use in my own home. The area rug is fantastic! Mirrors are my favorite thing in my home..
My daughter decorates in the same color palette.

You've got some beautiful pieces, but my favorite is your Salvador Dali print. Blessings!

Valens said...

What a lovely house!!
I like it beacause it's really airy and full of nice furniture pieces.
Among the newest ones, I like the mirrored wood carvings and the South American doors photo... but also the table with the postal stamp is cute!
Have a great day
xoxo

Very pretty! Looks like everything is coming along.

You're having fun decorating your new place; I can see that. I do like the new mirror and the postage stamp on the chest below it.

I can imagine some gorgeous aqua in that large painting you'll place above the sofa to tie in those pillows.

Have a good Blue Monday, Christine.

I see you're having fun decorating the new place! The colorful things you're bringing in look nice. I love the new mirror with its different materials too. Dropping by from Met Monday.

It is all looking so pretty, Christine. I love what you are doing with our new home.

Pat said...

Your new home, not our new home. That Y is sticking for some reason...could it be cracker crumbs? Probably!!

Scribbler said...

Your vacation home is really coming together! I adore your rug -- do you mind sharing your source?

Nice Dali print, too.

Ivy and Elephants said...

Love your FLA home, so many thoughtful and unique pieces. Lovely!
Hugs,
Patti

What an interesting mirror and it goes beautifully with the chest! Decorating 2 houses sounds like so much work but I may be in the same boat in a year or so! Having a home in Florida will be worth it I guess!

Sarah said...

Christine, I can tell you are having fun decorating this new home. It all looks lovely and inviting. I look forward to seeing what you paint for the living wall.

bj said...

Hi, Christiney....how I love your light and airy Fl. home. How fun to have an entirely different deco going on than your other house. Both are just beautiful.
Love your new mirror and that table is ADORABLE...did you buy it online?
hugs and kisses...
