Coffee Table

Some fun things I have displayed on my coffee table at the moment. I like to change it up - add books or something that does with the season or holiday. I also like to display my doilies!

Guest Bedroom Vignette

A vignette from my guest bedroom bedside table. The picture is of my mom and her sister. The paper is an actual newspaper from my mom's birthday September 2, 1942! Sweet sentimental things along with some found thrifted treasures.

I am a little bit Irish but feel a lot more because I grew up in an Irish neighborhood and many of my friends are 100% Irish! I like to put out some cutesy things to celebrate!
My cozy chair in my living room. I enjoy sitting here and looking at my decorating books and magazines! Is there a special place in your house that you enjoy sitting and relaxing? I don't get much time to do that but when I do, it sure is wonderful!

Been Doing Some Painting

I painted the rocker in my living room...

Much better than brown! I had been afraid to do it for sooo long!

Then I did this table....see the before below.

It makes me want to brighten up the room now!

I did this rocker, too. See the before below.

Kind of ugly. I like it painted. Hmmm, what else needs paint around here? I also noticed on the cover of Country Living that a new hot accent color is a minty/vintage green. I may have to get me some from Home Depot and see what I can do with that!
