Welcome to my humble abode!!!! This the first installment of your guided tour of the place I call home. It's the first floor of an old house and I love the high ceilings and oak woodwork. It isn't fancy or perfect anything but it's me. A friend said, "Nothing really goes together but it does!" That works for me because I'm pretty much an eclectic kind of gal as you've prolly guessed from reading here. And it's always a work in progress. And don't forget you can embiggen the photos.
Today we're checking out my living room. My apologies because I'm never going to win prizes for my photography. Here's the entry area. You'll notice my penchant for lace curtains and off-white walls. The door to the right is my bedroom.
This sign is the sign of the week and the first thing one sees as they enter. I collect funny (to me) signs and I change it as the mood strikes me. (At Halloween it reads: The Witch is In.) And the copper statue was a recent find in a decor shop I like at 80% off -- I simply love it!
Here is the view above my entertainment center. The black and white photo is of the train station in Barcelona, Spain and is by a local artist. The big poster is a print of a painting by Schaffer/Miles. I have a thing for impressionism as you'll see.
Here's another view of my entertainment center so y'all can see the antique lyre back chair I found in my travels for bargains as well as the detail of my area rug. When I bought it 10 years ago. I didn't have a car so I toted it across town on the bus! The drivers had a l0t of fun teasing me!
Here's my sofa. I found it last year at Habitat for Humanity's ReStore here and fell in love. It's paisley and incorporates all the colors in my rug. That it was a bargain on so many levels was a bonus! I absolutely love my brass and glass coffee table!!!! Yeah, it's impractical but I'm a sucker for such elegance.
Here are the chairs I love so much. The small arm chair has special significance for me but that's another blog. The art poster is a Monet print. The window treatment is mini-blinds topped with white lace valances because I decided that I didn't want hide the oak woodwork.
This corner cabinet has been with me for over thirty-five years. It's one of the few things I have from my marriage and houses my good china. And the vase was a wonderful find at two bucks. I'm pretty pleased with my arrangement I made for it. Whaddaya think. Judy?
Just a reminder who lives here . . . I saw this one day and it screamed, "Take me! I'm yours!!!! So what's a girl to do? LOL
I hope y'all enjoyed your tour,. On Saturday (we can't skip The Friday Groaner, can we?), we'll be visiting my dining room/home office aka Kay's World central.
