The other day I was picking oranges to ship to friends and thought they were so pretty piled up in the entry it inspired me to take a few photos. Our entrance at Grove House continues to be a work in progress. The anchor pieces - the metal locker cabinet I’ve had for a decade and the large 5ft wood mirror made from the wheel of an antique camel wagon, are definite keepers. I’m still on the hunt for a cool chair or stool for the left side of the cabinet and I’ve been going back and forth about painting the entry a dark, moody color. Only because the library is directly opposite from the entry and it’s being painted tomorrow. Anyway, I thought I’d share a few glimpses of how I currently have it styled, what’s inside those baskets in the cabinet, and sources for a few similar items.
As the year draws to a close, I find myself thinking about those of you who visit me here on the blog and how your warm comments and thoughtful conversations have kept me encouraged to stay the course on this platform. Over the last few years we’ve seen an influx of social media use and I often wondered if blogging would soon be irrelevant or obsolete. But there was always this small inner voice reminding me how I felt more of a connection with my blog readers through our shared interests and slower pace.
