Vintage Cabinet

I saw this cute, vintage cabinet at an antique store, and I wanted it so bad.

It's old, and very heavy, made of metal.

I had the perfect place for it in my bathroom.

But then I saw the price..................YIKES!  
So I had to pass on it.

My New Couch

Hello! I have started my Fall decorating, and I have a new couch and loveseat.

Here they are.  I was worried, because I had to order the sofa and fabric sight unseen.

Whew! The "crew" has approved. And I like it, too. Loved the white couch, but I was tired of washing slip covers. :)

I was also relieved that it is going to be OK with the seasonal decorating.

Here's the LR so far.

I found this picture last year and liked it for "fall" I wanted to keep the mantle simple this year.


I'm joining "Home and Garden Thursday" at A Delightsome Life.

Curtains in the Sunroom

Hello, I've been busy in the sun room.  I finally got my curtain rods hung after almost two years!

Here's how the sunroom looked when it was first added to the house. Pretty bare.

Then I added some furniture and sheer curtains at the windows.

 So here's the BEFORE ........ sun room decorated for Halloween 2011

and here's the AFTER.  I think it makes the room much more cozy.


AFTER............I got the curtains at Walmart, and they were a great price. (Curtains are expensive! Especially if you have to buy SIX panels!

Here's a night view.  I plan to maybe put shades or blinds in here to cut the glare during the day. And also switch out the curtains for different looks.

THANKS FOR STOPPING BY TODAY. HAPPY "MET MONDAY" at Susan's Between Naps on the Porch.  Thanks, Susan.

Sharing Some Blues

Hello, Today I'm joining Sally for "Blue Monday"
A Blue vignette in my entry

This Little Red Riding Hood was my Mom's.  It was my grandmother's before her, so it's really old.

Another BLUE vignette in the BR

And finally, I saw this darling old cabinet that somebody had painted and stenciled.
and Note, it was 25% off.  I didn't have a place for it. :(

Decorating from Yesteryear

Hello, Bloggy friends.  I have "inherited" an old scrap book from the l920's, and this girl was obviously into decorating (like some of us)

Thing is.....................I still like what she liked back in the l920's :) Blue and Yellow theme BR.

A girl after my own heart. :)

Look at that Secretary desk.  I have always wanted one just like that.

Seems like she liked "sunny" rooms, too.

This LR is my least favorite pic. Not too sure about the colors jiving.

I wish this one was in color.

My Bedroom with Pink Touches

Hi, Beverly, and Congrats on the Pink Saturday anniversary. Please join her for more pretty pinks at How Sweet the Sound.

Tonight, I'm showing my master bedroom which has touches of pink.  I love the color of the walls.
It is so soothing and nice to wake up to in the morning.

The bed and the picture over the bed came from my friend's Bed and Breakfast. Love them both.

Oh, she also gave me this chair from the B&B, too. The curtain fabric is by Laura Ashley.
I found it for a steal at "Hudson's Treasure Hunt".

Thanks for stopping by tonight. I really appreciate it.

Christmas House Tour

My computer was down so, I'm having to jam all my Christmas posts into one Giant one. I'm almost ready for the big Day!

 Presents are wrapped.

 Tree is decorated

 Mantle is finished

Stockings hung........

Living Room is finished......

I put lights on the windows of the sunroom this year.  Gives it a wonderful glow at night.

I set the little table in there using red and my blue willow.

Napkins were a wonderful "thrifty" find. So nicely starched and fresh!

This year, I added some little ornaments on the head board of the "red" bedroom.

These pillow cases were a wonderful thrifty find last year.

Here's the dining room tablescape this year.

It was inspired by this cute galvanized Yuletide bucket that my wonderful friend  gave me this year for Christmas. She has excellent taste, and knows what I love. :)

It worked so perfectly with the "thrifty" find table runner and placemats  I had already planned to use.  I got all 5 pieces for $4!
I also decided to get in on the "plaid" Christmas theme, which I love. I found these plates yesterday at Cracker Barrel for half off.

The cute Christmas tin is another gift from my friend.

Wish I knew how to do the fancy chalkboard stuff. :)

My FAVORITE gift my friend gave me. I had given her this Hallmark ornament in l989 when it first came out.
(We both love Christmas mice)

She found it on line for me this year. Love it!

This is a gift I bought for me. Love this F&F little platter!

Happy Christmas to All my Bloggy Friends!

I'm joining "The Scoop" this week, and "Met Monday" at Between Naps on the Porch,
and "Tweak It Tuesday" at Cozy Little House.
