Metamorphosis Monday...a bit of chicken wire!

Metamorphosis Monday...I have been away for a bit from usual posts.Feb. is a tough month for our family, also  been very busy and dealing with some extra health issues.
So life been slowing me up a bit on blog work and fun!
They found out I had almost no Vit. D in my body.
So we are treating that and will see how I do, hopefully better.
That might be my Metamorphosis for me , when some things feel better.

But now on to fun things.
One corner of the kitchen with this little cabinet that I store a bunch of my milk glass collection in.
We still have some things to do in our kitchen, seems like there is always something to do , whether a new or old house!

Adding a little chicken wire!
Chicken wire seems to be an in thing everywhere.
Especially for decor items.
We have a local craft/gift ware store that I really like and they give coupons, so I had 40% off a single item.
So I went back and bought me these cute chicken wire shelf things I had seen and liked.
They have doors and open up so you can put some chotchkeys inside of them.

I think it adds a little something to this corner.
Maybe not for everyone but I like it.
And I happened to see that they have these for sale at

The color on the metal of these new shelves goes nice with the large rooster plaque I already had. Also goes nicely with the chandeliers we have in the room.
So not a big metamorphosis but just a bit of an addition to
the room .
I like it!

OOh your tables are so very romantic and luxurious. I love the felt heart placemats on the kitchen table and the dining room is just fabulous. Thanks for dropping in with your kind comment. I also read the post about the counting your blessings keepsake. That is a really great find.

Love the wire cages!

Be sure to have your calcium level checked. I had a vitamin D level of nine because of a parathyroid tumor. Low vitamin D + High Calcium = parathyroid tumor.
