For Our Viewing Pleasure. . .

You won't find "Mr. Ed" and I watching much TV 
during the warmer months On Crooked Creektt.

Partially due to re~run programming. . .
partially due to the out ~ of ~ doors activity.

Just the same,
I added a touch of Summer to our Entertainment Center.

While it is a subtle change,
I've added a touch of green to accent my Willow Tree Angel Collection.
The added touch of greenery reflects the emerging greenery
taking place in the Gardens On Crooked Creektt.

I edited my collection on display 
keeping my focus on the meaningful celebrations On Crooked Creektt in June.

Our 45th Wedding Anniversary. . .

and, of course 

. . . Father's Day!

I, also, edited the selection of books 
and their titles to reflect those celebration days.

Before. . .

Using Ernest Hemingway titles 
keeps a manly theme to the left side of the Entertainment Center.

. . .After.

By removing the reds and browns,
I visually lightened the shelves.

Before. . .

I kept an 'air of romance' 
to the right side of the Entertainment Center.

. . .After.

Calming Peace On Earth musical Nativity Box 
and my favorite feminine Victorian vase are sufficient for the top shelf.

The Complete Works of William Shakespeare
and our Anniversary figurine to remind us of all the years we've shared.

I, truly am a symmetrical person.

So~o~o. . .
off centering the mantle clock was the most difficult design element.

Showcasing my green pottery urns from Nell Hill's
helps to hide those hideous silver speakers.

I balanced the right side by adding a hand painted vase
filled with faux miniature ferns.

My white urns atop the Entertainment Center 
keeps the mood focused on the out ~of~ doors Summertime activities.

Two mourning doves, 
similar to those that frequent the feeders On Crooked Creektt,
add a sense of tranquility to the vignette 
and enhance the hues of the vintage window frame.

Our viewing pleasure indoors On Crooked Creektt
will be enhanced by the continual changes emerging out ~of~ doors
reflected in the Gardens through the Dining Room patio doors.

The subtle changes in the Entertainment Center 
will aid us in keeping our focus 
on the upcoming celebrations and the reminiscing of the blessings 
we continue to experience On Crooked Creektt.

Until next time. . .

On Crooked Creektt will be joining

And. . .

Be sure to visit both of these amazing hostesses 
for inspiring decor ideas for your own home!

I love the little figurines of father and rarely see those, more often or not they are of mothers and their children. Your displays are beautiful.
