The Language of Flowers...

Today I'm joining Susan from Between Naps On The Porch for another Metamorphosis Monday for what I thought would be a perfect post for Valentines day.

This beautiful Cymbidium Orchid was given to me by my husband about a month ago. "She" now lives here and is loving it! She has bloomed several times and seems to be thriving in this room.

Happy Valentines Day everyone!
Thank you Susan for another great Metamorphosis party!

Does anyone know where the TV is?

OK so not doing too much today 'cept wandering around Blog land and came across this post in my blog roll from Rene at Cottage and Vine. She and I were corresponding yesterday about this very topic via email and I thought it would a great Linky party to join. Please hop on over to Cottage and Vine to take a look at all the wonderful posts' about this, its amazing to see all the great ideas out there!

Mr. LBV re purposed this antique Armoire for our family room a few years ago to house our TV and entertainment equipment. I've never been crazy about the looks of a TV just sitting out in the open and love anything antique and recycled so this was a good solution for us.
Below is the other side of the room and actually this pic was taken to show a friend how "up/down? shades work but gives a good visual reference of the room, glad I saved it:) Mr. LBV and I made the cornice board valences and upholstered them with a 1940 vintage Bark cloth.
Hope you had fun on this little mini tour, now go on over and say hi to Rene and see the wonderful ideas out there of TV storage!

Thank you Rene for hosting a fun party!
