One Thing Leads To Another

Hello, Dear Ones!
You all know the old saying "One Thing Leads To Another"?
Well, that's what seems to be going on in my den.

After painting the backs of my builtins green, I know you're tired of hearing about them, I thought it was time to rearrange the items in my TV cabinets.

Look at those wires! 
I hate that and have meant to try and do something about them but as you can see - I haven't!
Now some of you have the most gorgeous TV cabinets and I drool every time I see them.
Well, these puppies are olden, olden, olden, like 1979 olden.
There are actually three cabinets in the set but when we got the BIG screen TV, the third cabinet had to go to another room.
So...I just poked in a sofa table, poked the TV on it and called it done!

Okay, enough sentiment!
I did cover some core board with fabric to place in the backs of the cabinets a few years ago and I think that helped to lighten them up a bit.
See, I was being green way back then! :)

This is the top shelf of the cabinet to the left of the TV.
I found that pretty platter at Ross the other day and just new I needed to have it.
Poked down a few books and a plant and this shelf was done!

On to the second shelf...more books and little balls (I know they're called orbs, but I call them balls)!
I printed out a snap I took a few years ago in Maine and framed it.
You can't make it out very well, but it's a picture of a tree with lovely fallen colors all around.

Now on the the other cabinet which has three open shelves.

Again, I framed another one of my fallen snaps that you can't see because of glare, books and greens...

and one little Rooster!
Love these little guys.

More books, a vase, some greens, little birdy votives and another dish I found at Ross.
Probably got too much green going on here.
It'll change, I'm sure!

I'll bet you're so glad I'm down to the last shelf?
This is the working shelf that holds the cable box.
More books.
You're probably wondering why I have a line up of books at the back of the shelf.
There's an opening there for the cords to go through and it's not pretty.
So...a line up of books did the trick! :)
Works for me!

Pin It

Be a bunch of sweeties,
Shelia ;)

I'll leave you with a little Note Song ~

Everything I Own

You sheltered me from harm  
Kept me warm, kept me warm  
You gave my life to me  
Set me free, set me free
The finest years I ever knew  
Were all the years I had with you
And I would give anything I own 
And give up my life, my heart, my home  
I would give everything I own 
Just to have you back again
You taught me how to love  
What it's of, what it's of 
You never said too much but still you showed the way  
And I knew from watching you
Nobody else could ever know  
The part of me that can't let go
And I would give anything I own  
Would give up my life, my heart, my home  
I would give everything I own  
Just to have you back again
Is there someone you know?  
You're loving them so  
But taking them all for granted
You may lose them one day  
Someone takes them away 
And they don't hear the words you long to say
And I would give anything I own  
Will give up my life, my heart, my home  
I would give everything I own  
Just to have you back again  
Just to touch you once again
