Spring in the Entry

Spring in the Entry 2016

Spring is here in South Texas, in the entry to our home, and of course there’s a story to tell.

Let’s begin in the entry.

I found the table above at the flea market and my first thought was, “Oh wow! What a great table for the

entry !” ,
and then I took a closer look.

It is a dining table someone cut in half! I laughed so hard I almost fell down, and then I bought it.

Spring Entry Lamp 2016

On another flea market trip, I found the soft turquoise lamp (tassel included), and when the seller said the
tassel was free, that made me laugh too, and then I bought it.

I finished that side of the room with one of my favorite books, a small starburst mirror, a crystal egg, and
my favorite traveling faux floral that makes its way around the house.

On the opposite wall is a trio of Wilma Langhamer prints that I have collected over the years.

This is one of my favorites.

Your entry way looks like Spring. What a riot that the dining room table was sawed in half! Clever idea!! Enjoy your week.

Laura, I wasn't aware of the artist Wilma Langhamer but I love the prints. I've been using half of a table as a demilune for years, though I can put it back together if I want. It is a make-do idea that works and you were smart to purchase it!

So funny, recently my hubby and I saw a table like that in a hotel, and we wondered where the other half was! :))
Now the lamp, I love it!!! On a lamp hunt myself..oh Joy!
Thank you for the light hearted feel I get when I visit you...

Laura, your entry is so pretty. The beautiful artwork, the blue lamp and of course, the sawed off table all work together to make the space very welcoming. :)
