I have not shown you yet the fall look I have given my living-room. Usually I do a black/red color theme. But this year I went for eggplant and burgundy. What I am most excited about is my new background in my cabinet. I wanted to do something that looked like a quilt (now Kathy, this is the kind of quilting I can do !!) I had such fun at the scrapbook store playing with paper till I got the right look. I really wanted one to see all the different papers I used, so I took out the top shelf and wow what a difference. I had never done this before, but you would be surprised how just a small thing as removing a shelf can change the whole look. Now I am looking at my shelves in a new way.

I also gave my lamp a new look too. Sadly you can not see in the picture how wonderful this rose is. It is all different shades of purple to almost black. So just a bit of velvet ribbon and a flower and tah-dah ! I will show more next week. My mother-in-love is coming to visit, so I will be busy this weekend cooking and entertaining. But I will be back on Monday.

I LOVE it!!! You did a wonderful job placing the paper behind the shelves. Very charming!


Lovely job on the cabinet. What a different look with a shelf missing.The lamp as well is lovely.

Wow, Clarice! It's funny, but I love both of the befores and both of the afters, too! :) Everything looks lovely and autumnal...thanks for sharing and thanks for your comments at my blog, too! (She says on her way back upstairs to do something creative because Clarice inspired her!)... Blessings, Debra


Looks great, Clarice!


Love the new look!!!!!So...tell us about your Thanksgiving plans and menu...will you???


This is so inspiring Clarice. How do you fix up the paper squares? Have a good weekend,Gill.


Using the paper in your hutch is such a great idea Clarice. I love the new fall look! I hope you have a wonderful weekend!

Clarice, the end result is absolutely stunning! That is such an incredibly inexpensive way to get a totally new look. I MUST do this to my hutch.

Oh you've done it again! I loved the way you decorated it with your paper and birds last time I saw it, and this is equally as lovely.
I see your Nicole Sayre doll, I love her work.


Love the two colors, eggplant & burgandy, very rich and warm.I also liked the before too.
Sound like your having a busy weekend. Have fun!
