This is a large room that Sweet Hubby and I added on to a couple or 3 years ago. In fact, we doubled the size of the room...I know I have shared this fact with you before but it was a long time ago.
I am so crazy about those french doors in the background, I almost kiss them every morning when I walk into the room. Ladies, it is such a PLEASURE to have things around you that you just love to pieces! Surround yourself with that pleasure...life is way too short to not enjoy all the little things along the way.
See that RED gum ball machine? THAT is the apple in the eyes of all my grandchildren....even the BIG ones. :) I try to put the VERY BEST gum balls I can find in there...just for them!! :) A gum ball is a tiny thing...but I am thinking it is all the tiny things added together that makes our days so enjoyable!!
That's my comfy reading nook over there, with the 2 blue chairs and ottoman that DO NOT fit in with the rest of my furniture. That little table and 2 red chairs are the perfect spot for Sweet Hubby and I to share our meals and any other thing that we might need a table for. I addressed all my Christmas cards in one of those chairs this year. Granddaughters draw and color there and a card game or two have taken place on that table. It is an old vintage Singer sewing machine base with a thick piece of glass on the top.....it belonged to my mom at one time.
As you can see...this French blue with floral doesn't look at home with black and leather and the Pottery Barn look. Oh, dear...they are driving me crazy and I am pretty sure I will end up selling them and getting something else more fitting. But, they are oh, so comfy, and right in front of that fireplace, too. 'Course, new ones could go there, too. But, boy, that is gonna cost a lot of money..... I just wonder how two chaises would look there? Boy, wouldn't THEY be comfy to read in.!!
I think most of you know how I love my wood burning stove. GOOD GRIEF! We aren't supposed to love material things and I love most everything in my house...and then some!
Please take some pictures of your living room to share with all of us. I just LOVE peeking in thru windows and doors...seeing how someone else lives shows so much about their personality....I, for one, want to know more about all of you. It is such fun to share our tastes, styles and etc.
I am looking forward to seeing YOUR living room!!
Yipee...Anita at PRAIRIE DREAMS just posted her living room. Thanks for playing along, friend. I LOVE your angel collection, by the way!
If you've not been by to visit with ANITA, please drop by...her photography is worthy of awards, believe me!
