U can tell what I've been up to....

I wanted to post more pics of my entry, living room and dining room. Since I got my new chairs and painted my walls last month it sort of turned into this process as I'm sure you know how that happens. I posted everything backwards so bear with me
Wow I just learned if you don't resize your pics down you can enlarge all these for a better view...
so click to enlarge

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!
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
