The simple pleasures of home shine brighter
when the spirit of God intertwines our hearts
with His gentle Joy.

Touch of Gold. . .

As Summer begins to fade into Autumn, On Crooked Creek
has begun to exhibit a Touch of Gold!




Our Entertainment Center is the focal point of our living room. Although it is quite a chore to change out the decor, it gives me a great sense of accomplishment when completed!




Honey oak finish compliments the golden hued accessories that are now showcased on the display shelves of the Entertainment Center!

I adore how the golden bird statues blend harmoniously with the vintage oil lamps and the straw angel!




Always my greatest challenge is this long narrow shelf above the television. The shelf itself is a delightful display space; however it's hiding the stereo speakers that gives me great distress!




Italian handled olive jars  on the left. . .




combined with my French busts and an ornate clock camouflage the hideous speakers!




Golden accessories begin with a Marjolein Bastin owl print and some faux soft green textured hedge balls. Our Peace On Earth music box and "Mr. Ed's" golden retirement clock fill the second shelf!




Domed golden pocket watch and a laser cut shell finish the bottom shelf!











A second Marjolein Bastin print continues the golden hued accessories to the opposite side of our Entertainment Center. A Summer cloche with a single Sunflower and wrought iron rustic birds compliment the framed bird's nest. Brass vases from "Mr.Ed's" tours in Korea alongside my angelic snow globe completes this decorative area. Beneath is the HUGE stereo!







Books in brown, burgundy and tan have replaced the beige, along with the addition of golden sweetheart roses in the creamy ivory urns.




This past June we celebrated my Dad's 90th birthday!!! The remainder of our parents are deceased and awaiting our heavenly reunion! Having their photos near is such a comfort.









 A Touch of Gold with hopes that Autumn is near and On Crooked Creek will soon put the Summer of 2012 in the past!




Until next time. . .
