I have thought a lot about where to put these pieces of inherited art. I tried them in several places in house. All the dancers together and separate. I thought I had tried all the options, until I tried them all together.
The colors and frames don't necessarily go but the subject matter does so I say it works! I think I will go and get some antique gold rub and buff to put all over that more ornate frame to help it go more with the gold accents in the other frames.
Looking at these pieces reminds me of my grandmother, they were either hers or she painted them. She passed away 10 years ago and being able to look at these every day reminds me a lot of her. I think you should always have something in your home that is maybe a little out of place but brings you a lot of joy!
What is something in your home that you love?
Happy Monday everyone! I hope you had a great weekend and Father's Day. We start celebrations around here with breakfast and I thought I would share with you this A-M-A-Z-I-N-G oatmeal buttermilk pancakes. It can also be made gluten free!
Sorry for the poor picture, we ate them so fast I almost forgot to take a picture and had to snag this last one before my husband ate it!
Here is the recipe!
Amazing Oatmeal Buttermilk Pancakes
*requires prep time of a minimum of 2 hours or overnight
cups old fashioned oats (pulsed a few times in a food processor)
cup flour (I used a gluten free flour and it turned out great)
tablespoons sugar (or sucanant)
teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 cups buttermilk ( I used original unsweetened almond milk with two tablespoons of lemon juice to make my own buttermilk)
cup butter, melted (it says "no substitutes"so I didn't try it with any!)
1/2 teaspoons vanilla
(for frying) or butter (for frying) (I just used a regular electric skillet and they turned out fine!)
a large bowl combine the first 6 dry ingredients.
another smaller bowl whisk together buttermilk, eggs, melted butter and vanilla
until well blended; add to the dry ingredients, whisk until blended (there
might be some small lumps that still remain).
and chill for a minimum of 2 hours or overnight.
morning give it a quick stir. Drop about 1/4 cup of batter into the skillet, and start cooking!
Who doesn't love Homegoods! I am a bit spoiled because I have one about 5 min away from me, you think I would get there more often!
Here are some items I found on my last trip
The console table reminded me of this one from Kirklands that I had pinned on my entry board. Mine has a cute lip on the top and the shelf.
While writing this post I looked on Kirklands again and they are now selling the exact table I purchased! I got it for less of course! :) YEAH!
I plan on adding brass ring pulls to mine. What do you think? Ideally I want a chest of drawers but until I find something that fits the space perfectly this will do.
I also found this large storage ottoman. I brought it home to try out but in the end I thought it made the room go a little country-ish and that is not the direction I am going. So back it went. However both my 5 and 2 year old could fit in it! LOL
Finally I had wanted an aluminum table for a while. I found this oval one! I love the oval shape, you don't see it much!
So that is my latest Homegoods haul. What have you found at Homegoods recently?
*Finally I would either find a vintage Federal Eagle Bullseye Convex mirror in wood or Syroco (check Ebay) mounted over the sofa with a gallery wall of black and white family photos (and a few graphic prints) in gold, silver and black and white wood frames.
