anything goes in the hallwayalways mostly dark so you won't see itand I just love these two pieces so Ibrought those in and let's see it's anovercast day y'all so the lighting notso great I just love the animals and Ithought that that would be a good ideato bring that in okay so we all knowthat that wreath that I got from afroshe will cheek how stunning is that allright of course as you see oranges allup in the house because that's myfavorite colorthank you and I got the calorie shells Imade that in a sense for this wall sowhatever sitting there I kind of madethat the centerpiece I love in my orangeI took this the same two coasts earlieryou called those the placemats and Iused those actually on the wall againand then I took the rolling pin and putthat in the middle yeah I was gonna puta rug down there but I was like okay yoyou get off so you can put the rugs backyou know in the wintertime so of coursewhat is the centerpiece here whiningabout happiness and the Baron where wasthe quilt made by Linda GE loving homeyou tuber very talented system onYouTube hereshe actually gifted this to me made itby hand and gifted itit's a beautiful quilt and I absolutelylove this quilt what I love about thisquilt and here in the dining room isI'll get to see it more when it's in thebedroom since I don't go into I onlysleep in my bedroom I read I don't hangout in there I don't do anything else inthere so yes Linda made the homemadequilt and it is gorgeousof course I brought in my Dollar TreeDIY project which is the placemats andthen yeah it's for Linda I know she dida wonderful job didn't she I'm glad yousaw it yeah so I took the cowrie shellsand put them on the placemat somethingvery beautiful you want to likeinstantly Afrocentric something aplacemat and some shells would do well Itook these pictures what I love aboutthese two pictures is it really is aboutwomen and I think the framing is reallybeautiful that these two are actually myhusband's piece and in here I took thisbeautiful spoon that actually is forhanging and this one I got at Ashby fleamarket again in Berkeley California sothese are temporary so as you see yousee I have the visors I'm gonna actuallyget my tall grass and we're gonna putthat life in there but for now becausethis is another alternative is I got mytwo cotton decor branches in each cornerand I think they're actually stunningand so let me just give you the look cuzwe're gonna get to the tablethank you yes very elegant and y'allfind out my husband calls me and says wehaving dinner guests it's this Saturdayso I gotta I gotta put the whole houseback together getting y'all and you knowI was doing the slow route but it'scoming I got this thing and I get thekitchen so yeah I got a few more areasto do but let me just take a littlecloser lookso yes the table so I did it somebodysaid do you ever leave the table with notablecloth and I say yes cuz the tableis very pretty so I took these I calledthem my Moroccan type placemats I thinkthey're wonderful it gives me my feelingof the rugs cuz you know I like the rugson the wall but I'm gonna do this theliving roomsand the better who's gonna be now mylittle Moroccan type theme so the rugswill be good in there it's gonna bebeautiful on those walls but we're hereso I took I changed it up because theyall couldn't fit long ways or landscapeor horizontally so I did this side andthen I did this side and the knees I didvertically and I did vertically on theother side and I absolutely love itI took the red chargers I think I gotthese from Hobby Lobby and I put thegreen plate from the Dom tree I brokethe other green plate but I've seenplenty at the Dollar Tree so I'm gonnaget another one I just used the white onthat one of course you know I gotta havemy orange plates and my orange placesand of course I took the beautifulnapkin rings and I don't even havenapkins in them I just think thatthey're so pretty and so decor fullright so I love that okay yeah I'm gonnatell you about the centerpiece in aminute so then I took my coasters I gotthese from Hobby Lobby I love thesethey're my kind of a wood I mean I'm abasket type of material look at thedetail just to let you see I thinkgorgeous I absolutely love these andthen of course the good old green dollartree glasses which i think are perfectfor this I got the Rings from actuallyyou know what I'm gonna be selling ringsvery similar soon but I got them offAmazon or EbayI can't remember which one they're inChristmas time I try to look for it butalso I'm gonna actually carry thosenapkin rings because they are they arereally stunning aren't they and then ofcourse I got my favor I call these myfavorite glasses the gold glasses I gotthese on around the time New Year's Eveand I think I got it from TJ Maxx I didand also the stunning I'm going to gettwo more at home had these I kept hopingtoday would have them on sale $6.99 Ihaven't been in recently but they werestill $6.99 I'm gonna go this weekendand get the other two if they are stillon display this is the mud clothcoasters which I think are simplyelegant so I have the other side has thesame glass saying Costa same glass andCosta onsigh now let's talk about thecenterpiece which i think is simplisticand beautiful and i absolutelyabsolutely love it so I picked up theseat Pier one and I think these napkinsare absolutely gorgeous so I wanted thatidea I mean when I think of Africa Ithink about sharing from one basket orsharing from one bowl and I love that Ilove this wood I'll pick this up at oneof the stores I wish I could rememberbut look at the handrunning napkins I think that's awonderful way I mean people know to takethe napkins out and they can use it andthen y'all I bought this wine bag thiswine holder bag from Ngozi boutique inDurham North Carolina and I when Ibought it I knew I was gonna use it fordecor purposes now I don't have a whileback I don't have any wine so I don'thave any woman but I and I'll get someeventually for the guests cuz we'regonna set a little dinner a couple overfor Saturday but is this not stunninglook at the fabric with the shells thecolors are so amazing got the Reds theoranges pulling in the napkins pullingin the cocoa will you call the Chargerspulling in the plates and the colors Ijust think that it's just I love thislike I love this centerpiece and it'sjust a little closer look here again nowremember y'all so this is the cottonwhich I think it's just so beautiful forthe core and inside the Vaz is dirt reddirt from our land so that's red dirtfrom our land and I absolutely love thatand it's the same thing here now when Iget the tall grass actually I make it alittle shortercuz if I get it too tall then it'llcover all of this and I'll see I'll playwith it I might get some shorter grassbecause they gotta just know it has tobe that tall so I aren't on land but Ijust think that green naturalness that'sgonna turn it out so either this lifewhich is what I love about the cotton isthe core is you're still bringing insomething that's real not just thoselittle what's the green ballsI forgot Pope topiary topiary not myfavorite thing for sure go ahead andhave that and enjoy it I like thingsthat are real so I don't end like a lotof fake plants poor and I don't knowthis the round ball just don't do enoughfor me but if you have any you love itthat's great I think that cotton is thecore it's real it's alive it's a plantdo you understand like its nature and soif you don't have plants or you're in adark area here like here a plant liveplant wouldn't really do well becausethere's no life there'swindows so there's no natural light thisis a wonderful way to bring in thenaturalness but also I noticed the tallgrass that's pretty well here the tallgrass really is weeds I'm sure so itdoes really well and because of such anabundance of it as it dies you can justput it back on the earth that's when Iget to tall grass you'll see it's greenfoliage and it's gorgeous it's sexy andit just brings height but for now Ithought I could go either waythe only thing about and so let me saythis this is good for looks but somebodyactually sat here they can get pumped inthe eye with this with these branches sothat's why I think the tall grass isgonna be beautiful we have dinner wehave a leaf to extend the table and sowe'll just move the whole table a littlemore forward this way so people willhave room to say just let me myself myhusband and this actually it's thebrother Larry Thomas the one I did theinterview from the historian brother toprofessor from Durham North Carolina andhis wife actually are coming over so Iknow we're gonna have a goodconversation what I love about this roomis everything in here I think yeaheverything in here is actually mine theonly thing that's my husband's that hecame and came with the marriage when itcame to marriage with is the twopictures of the ladies but the quiltmine I made those that those those eventhe cotton the vows is the dirtaccording to dirt is ours the dishes thestuff the tables the chair everythingthat the rolling pin so just like theroom in the second bedroomthis again is strictly my design withthe stuff that I have and I'm lovingthat like I'm so loving it it's brightit's beautiful it's summery and that's abig thing so that I think that they Itook the rugs off because you knowthat's kind of a winter look althoughI'm a deck them rugs in the in thebedroom I think the bare rooms gonna beable to really support those rugsbecause the bare room is so massive soyou know that was kind of big it's a bigbedroom so I think the wall and the wallis huge I think those rugs would justbalance out the height but I think thisis cozy Ellicott I think we're gonnagreat conversation hey Queen how youdoing darling I just think it's gonna bebeautifulso again yard this is let me show youfrom different angles so the entirehouse is a mess I got this whole wall Istill got to do all this before SaturdayI put the mask back there and I'm gonnaput I got another master put right ontop of the door actually somebody wastelling me about lemons to clear andnegative energy and actually thank youso muchI actually know that I grew up that waymy mama taught us that and really whatwe used to what we did with the lemonswere we would take the lemons andactually if there was like a more of ashelf up here now some doors have moreof a shelf we would take the lemons andyou're supposed to put the lemons overyour door and then and then I will drawout negative energy and keep negativityfrom coming in but we're gonna get tothatso y'all let me just see I just want youto know look at all this blackmemorabilia stuff that I'm gonna do Ithink I'm gonna put all this in thishallway here so that that's a differentdisplay and I got I got picturespaintings artwork galore girl is notcomplaining I got these three pieces -what you know I had them in the kitchenfor a while and absolutely love these soI'm thinking about taking these and justputting one and one in on the other endand one in the middle so again it hasthat kind of simplistic look but I gottawash these walls I ain't gotten here yetI'll ask it back to the beauty this isstunning like I'm looking forward tobeing at this table and so so many waysto switch it up I got a table clothsthat would go nice with this if I wantedI got different napkins again we cantake the tall grass or as soon as I getthat I'll show you that look as wellbecause now I took the cotton bouquetsone was here and I really like it herebecause I think it gave this countertopsome height so but we know what I don'tknow cuz now I can see and hear betterso let me tell you - what I'm reallyfeeling is there is some continuity likeI really want that I I like this andthen you look in there like I said I'mgonna straighten those pictures out andI love the kitchen with the gallery wallI love that brightness right there Ithink I feel like it's a more of acontinuity waiter I'd do the bedroom andI just loved it so look y'all still gotthose those nails up there but ain't gotno pictures I'm waiting for my husbandto bring in some
