Just Playin' 'Round With Samples

I've got all these samples and I'm going to use them all. I started awhile back using them in the drinking alone series, then in the seasons series and now I'm just going to do the rest higglety pigglety one after another. It's kind of a nice challenge and fun from a color/decor standpoint.

I liked these because they have a sort of greenish tinge...I'm usually not a green person. The greenishness didn't really show in the photos...ah well.

I wanted something in the teapot that was brownish and used Coke. Funny, you can see the bubbles.  Again...ah well.

All in all, I wouldn't mind spending some time sipping tea in this room.

Have not done credits in some time. Here are some of them:  Room is Lekman house from Ikea, couch is Bozart Kaleidoscope furniture, coffee table is a glass sample on top of a napkin ring, lamp is a plastic Chess piece with a toothpaste tube lid for a shade (I saved a bunch of lids and will be featuring the lamps a lot), rug is a Shade Store sample, wallcovering is another sample, side table is a metal thing sent to me by Neomi with a Petosky Stone (state stone of Michigan) for a top, book is by Oese, tray is vintage German from my childhood, coral is mine, the shells and teapot and cups are from a mini friend named Monika.


  1. I love this natural look and your creativity. You always do such a great job! Keep 'um comin'!

  2. It turned out great. What a creative use of free stuff!

  3. I take a cup, Dory. This room is high design with everyday comfort. Great work. (And happy new year!)

  4. Hi all of you sweet things. Your nice compliments always make me feel so good.

  5. I love that metal side table base from Neomi. Very cool. The room looks great, well put together. :D

    1. I know...I like the base, too. When I got it I did not know what to do with it at first, but I love the industrial look of it.
