Recently, we've had some cloudy days. This morning, the sun is shining through my living room window and the sun rays look so beautiful that I wanted to share these photos of my living room.
This mirror frame was in an architectural salvage place and when I saw it, I had to have it! The finish was old and distressed, naturally. On the left bottom, someone did a repair job and a good one! I added the mirror and it's in the perfect place over my sofa.
When my kids were very small, they would bring me unique pieces of wood, burr oak acorns, lots of things that attracted them and I would keep them in a special box. Every once in a while, they would find a butterfly that was no longer alive, but still in good shape. ( Someone was probably spraying insecticide. Please be organic around your home and yard.) I saved them for years and then decided to put them in a shadow box. I painted the back ground with oil paints and gently placed the butterflies in the scene. They've been in these frames for many years and are still in perfect condition. In my garden, once in a while, I will find a butterfly that is no longer alive and it always makes me think of a little boy finding it and bringing it home to show his mama.
I love blue accents.
When Mollie was smaller (a lot smaller than now) she loved to sleep in this bowl.
My little doggie!! He has claimed this oversized chenille chair by our large window and front door. He guards the neighborhood and our front door. Feb 12 is his birthday and he'll be 9 yrs. old. Best little doggie in the world!!
When I first purchased my home, there was a huge air conditioner in this wall. When I got central air, I designed this wall cabinet to go where the a/c had been. I found the middle stained glass door and designed my cabinet around it. My living room is small, so I had the carpenter build the cabinet into my garage and the cabinet front in my living room.
This beautiful angel (and Charlie) guard my front door.
