To market, to market to buy a fat pig;
Home again, home again jiggety jig.

It's Curtains for the Living Room
In the living room, I'm using our old living room sofa and rug. I bought new curtains and pillows at Pier One since our old curtains were sold with the house. It's kind of fun to be able to try a different look. Jennifer went with me and we pulled the red and the blue-green from the rug. Notice that the walls are kind of chocolate milk color..yum. And the pillows a chocolate candy bar...yummy. Those pillows are so sooooft too. You just want to pet them.
I have a cute little floor lamp upstairs in the bedroom that I think would be perfect to replace this lamp in the corner. Then I could move this one to the end of the sofa...it's not as cute, but it gives great light to knit or sew by.
Just to keep it real, if you turn around and look into the dining room, this ridiculous mess is what you see. I know it's hard to tell from this picture, but we really are throwing a lot of stuff away. It is amazing how much stuff you accumulate when you live somewhere with an attic and basement for 23 years.
I bought this plate with a bathing beauty on it at an antique shop several years ago. This is the first time I've had it up. It's hanging in the bathroom. Imagine going swimming in that swimsuit and leggings!
This is a vintage mirror I bought in a Streator junk shop many years ago. I've always loved it, and I really like how it looks in here. Tomorrow we are putting a little glass shelf under the mirror because, as you can see, that is a tiny sink with no real good place to set your soap. This bathroom is downstairs. They just added it to the house. It used to be a closet.
Painting, journaling, antiquing, and working on fixing up my little craftsman bungalow. My kids are grown, and I'm starting to get used to (and love) being mom to grown-ups! Each day is a gift, and a new chance to live well.
