Back in the swing of it all......At least trying


Oh.... I'm so trying to get back into the swing of it all. I want to do so much and I only end up doing everything half way. I'm feeling the itch to re-decorate (which I've been working on, I'll give you a peek but I'm not done). I've been wanting to sell my sofa for awhile... although its beautiful I'm over it so I purchased 4 white slipcovered wing chairs and made a nice conversation area in my living room. It allowed me to simplify my room by getting rid of a few pieces that surrounded my sofa. I will update this pic this week when I finish, But I'm loving it so far. I moved these two great chairs I had in my living room into my Dining room and took the dark ones out and it looks great. I'll get a pic of that on also.
I've gotten quite a few listings on ebay also, including this wonderful Italian Tole Table
This sweet lamp with Porcelain Roses and Beaded Lamp Shade...SOLD
This funky but fabulous Costume Jeweled Lamp... nix the shade..SOLD This Yummy Old Oil Painting of Pink Roses ...SOLD
Have you ever seen a Victorian Wedding Crown Display? Another great find!
SOLD
How sweet are these old curtain Tie Backs1800's Saint Bernard Dog oil Painting
And you can't have to many Pictures of Roses in your home

How gorgeous are these bookends..SOLD

Antique watercolor of sweet birds and lilacs ...SOLD


I listed other great things along with these but I won't bore you, if you would like, just go to my ebay and take a look. I will be working on getting more items on my website this week also. I wish I could just stay on task and finish one thing completely before I'm on to something else but I'm making a little progress. Along with my goals I promise to post and read my friends blogs more often....and stop to smell the roses, even if they're not real

You have been s-o-o-o missed. Oh my gosh, your room is looking beautiful. I love the idea of chairs instead of sofas. Much more intimate. I'm going to be watching a couple of those items you've listed. They are fabulous. Glad you're back, Debbie

Your home is beautiful, and I love the white chairs.

I'm the one that emailed you and asked about posting your cream cheese tarts on my blog. Since then, I have made them 5-6 times. I take them to every social gathering and they have been a huge hit. They are now my youngest son's favorite and he ask for them all the time. A couple of people saw them on my blog and have told me how much they love them also.

Cheryl, I love the new look. Are the chairs covered or did you purchase them this way. I have two chairs that I want to put in a guest bedroom they are Lane chairs but I don't like the color. I have had these chairs since we have been married and we never sat in them more than a dozen times.
Your's looks so awesome.

Glad to see this post from you. I always enjoy visiting with you and taking peeks inside your lovely home.

You always find the greatest dog and rose paintings. How in the world do you do it? Where in the world do you find them? Our sales are not that classy.

Love the look of chairs and no sofa!

Love the new design...the four slipcovered wing back chairs! Wonder how long it would take for my husband to spill a glass of red wine on those? Well, they look lovely! Can't wait to see the next pics!

I love it! I would have never thought to put 4 chairs together instead of a couch. But it looks great.

Sandra~Romantique Inspirations~ said...

Hi, I like the gathering of the wing back chairs. Now you bought them all like that correct? If not, where do you purchase white slipcovers for those kind of chairs?

I'm looking forward coming back for a update on your lovely room. Can't Wait!!

Jean said...

It is great to have you back, and your living room is looking wonderful. Of course I am sure it will be beautiful when you finish putting your touch everywhere. Have a wonderful weekend.

Love all your new projects. Would you share with us where you got the white chairs? The ruffled bases of the chairs are my favorite. I would love to do white in our great room but am very nervous about it.
