Sweet Banner and Sun Room Tweaks

I was so surprised recently when I was notified by Diane at Design til it Shines, that I had won her giveaway.  Just look at this sweet little banner!  Of course I hung it in my favorite room, the sun room!  I know I am always showing this room, but it is just so fun to change around!!

Isn't it sweet!  It has birds, and a bird cage, and hangs by the tiniest little clothespins on jute!  I just love it.  I also received two very pretty greeting cards.  I got busy in the sun room and failed to take pictures of those, but they are just as special.

I couldn't help but do a little tweaking while I was in the sun room.  Y'all know how we all are!  

This OLD lamp and the lantern/cage (whatever) had been on top of the jelly cupboard.  I decided to place a bird in the lantern and put it in front of the banner on the old wooden box I painted.  Then I put the insect trap bottle there too, because I just love it's color! 

I added this pedestal I made to the table top.
The rose underneath the domed top is a gift from a great friend.

One of my very favorite spots in my home!  I love this little table and all the thrifty items on top.  

I love the way painting this frame and flipping the mat to the white side gave it a whole new look.  This print is so special to me because it's from a dear friend!!  (as is the small picture on the table)

Since I moved the lamp and lantern to the chest, I had to 're-do' the top of the jelly cupboard.  Enter, Curious Chicken!!  I love this chicken!  
She peers down from the top of my little shabby stool!

Now, isn't she just the cutest!!??

 This old candle stick is one I painted with ASCP, and waxed with dark wax.  It started out gold.

I covered the cushions in an old sheet that I had for years.

The window treatments are flat twin sheets.

The sun room is my favorite because I have painted about every item in here, the majority of the items were handed down, or are thrifting finds or gifts.  This room is just "me".
