  1. enjoyed your post.  i love white birch.  we just cut down some trees by the power lines and there were a few beautiful white birches.  hate to cut them but necessary! told jeff to put them in a special spot for christmas decorations!–karen

  2. You always give me inspiration! I loved reading this post! I do have a question, where did you find a cabinet for your TV and is it just one that incases the TV only? I am in the same dilema LOL , we are getting a flat screen that wont fit in our beautiful TV cabinet that we’ve had for years! I can’t seem to find a cabinet that will hide TV and store all the DVD’s and video’s we still have and intend to keep for the little ones. Anyway…..

  3. I love you! Just had to say that. You and Rich are so right together! I don’t know what the wood is on the cabinet, if it can be refinished? If so, a warm wood color to match the mantle, floor, furniture would be nice. Otherwise it could be painted, which would probably be easier. You could do yellow, like the walls with a trim on the top piece of green or burgundy (pick up a color from the drapes or rug), or do the whole cabinet one of those colors or the rich maple like color to match other wood (I am sure you have seen the look in your country living mags). Anyway, that would make it look much nicer than the stark white. I enjoyed the critters too, and those books! Oh my, I like old books so much,and to have them “Anne books”, even better!

  4. Beautiful salamanders (we’ve seen many this year too), beautiful Anne books, beautiful towels and cake. The cabinet…sorry, I agree with Rich. Hope his foot heals quickly!!

  5. so, if you’re asking for ideas for that cabinet…
    Maybe new handles and cool old looking hinges like those you might find on an old trunk? I don’t think it’s terrible. What about being bold and painting the whole thing a chocolate brown color… and then rubbed bronze or copper hinges. I’m ALL about breathing new life into old furniture!
    I’ve even seen old pieces like that, where the person cut out just the right vintage paper flower or even a simple leaf border and decoupaged it onto the door for a very pretty effect or old maps inside the door?…. that would rock!
    ps. those books are awesome! and the salamanders too. We had garage clean out day on Sat as well. Feels good, right?

  6. I love your books — Kristen and I like to Watch Anne of Green Gables and Avonlea! I also like your cabinet — I’m sure you will find something very creative to do with it! Your posts are always so fun!

  7. Hey Shan, love the post as usual…  perhaps for now until you come up with the perfect idea for the cabinet you should just put one of your pretty tablecloths or a piece of vintage fabric over it so it comes to the middle of the cabinet as a triangle?  it would hide some of it and it would still be functional??? 

  8. I just got some jeans of that same color you have on in your pictures and plan to wear it with a black shirt as well 🙂 They look lovely on you. I’ve been too busy to be about blogs lately but have missed it! It is so nice to have a little “out” somehow. . . I’m glad you keep yours because it is always a pleasure for me :)Have a great day!Alyssa

  9. Still thinking about the cabinet. I like the idea of painting it a different color. I always like a surprise on the inside…like a different color or perhaps vintage book/hymnbook pages on the back wall. Of course…I already mentioned the new hardware before. I think I may be on the hunt for new hardware on that dresser I was painting last week. I was putting it back together this morning and noticed the original pulls were wearing thin. Good excuse for me to go on the hunt for replacements!!! 😛 w00t!
