When my family arrived home yesterday, they were quite impressed and all I could say was, "but I'm not done yet!!". My husband said the house looked fabulous, and even danced around in the now uncluttered great room! Would you mind if I proudly shared a little bit of my accomplishment?
My living room is still a work in progress. I didn't get to sew new pillows for the sofas, but will soon. I found the sofa and loveseat at an estate sale for $75 for the pair. They are covered in a large green and white checkerboard fabric, so on I went with a white slipcover from Target. Eventually I would like to make new slipcovers, but that will have to wait. I love my coffee table! It started off as a kitchen table, to which I (painfully) cut the legs to the right height.
The vintage wicker settee is one of my favorite pieces. I had seen it at our local antique mall (where Lisa and I had a booth) and had been thinking about buying it. One day, while there, I was at the counter telling the owner I was seriously considering buying it, when this lady came in and said "I want to buy this settee!". We looked at each other, and I told the lady I was just discussing the possible purchase. The mall owner whispered to me, "you have to make a decision right now!" I told her I have to have it, I would never forgive myself for letting it go! Needless to say, the lady wasn't happy and I felt bad, but I am so happy I have it!

I made this lampshade out of vintage barkcloth. Here are some other lampshades I have created.
My flea market dolls...
... an inexpensive tieback...
Believe it or not, I bought this china cabinet on Ebay...!! Even with shipping it was a good price! It holds many of my favorite collections, like my vintage celluloid boxes and my roses and cherubs clocks.
This is the space above my entry door.
I bought this darling pink cabinet from Lisa and just love it! The fabric covering the door is as cute as can be!!
I will share pictures of some other areas of my home soon! I hope you will come back!
