Dining Room

My mom was in town to visit for a week so I got to do a little shopping. Actually we went halfers on the clock and shelf and the bracelet is the only thing I bought myself.
So this is the state of my dining room at the moment. It needs paint but is slowly coming together with the Hey-Wake table, starburst clock and curtains. I didnt take multiple views of the room simply because half of the table is filled with arts and craft projects my son and I do together. I could have cleaned it all up but eh Im lazy and busy. Also the elephant in the room (tv on the floor) is my husbands doing. He wants one in there and he pays the bills so what can I say? I havent found anything to put it on yet so on the floor it stays.

Here is a closer view of the curtains.

Im not sure I prefer this shelf/towel rack up this high but the bathroom seems so bare. I need a place for some pretties that my son cant reach. Im undecided about it, what do you all think?

A shot of the clock..

The bracelet I got for $10. I dont think its bakelite. Im not sure what it is honestly. It doesnt have a seam like bakelite bracelets yet theres no smell when rubbed or put under hot water. It has this glossy mod-podge stuff over it so that could be why. Im not sure what it is but I love the color and the carving and Im getting obsessed with vintage bracelets right now so I made it mine.

Stuck on you.

A while back I mentioned having a giveaway at 100 followers and ever since then I have been stuck on 80 followers! Of course I dont want followers for the sake of followers, but you get my gripe.

In other news, my mom came to stay for a week. Unfortunately I didnt get to use those nifty transfers. We were far too busy with normal catching up and shopping. Silly me actually thought we would also paint the dining room. Ha! Anyways, I did get a few things that I will be sharing as soon as I get a chance to take some photos.
