Living Room

I have been trying so hard to get my home in order.  
Finally, today...I feel like I can show my living room with a few new items.

How fun is this rug?

Another  Craigslist find!  
It was never even used..
It's a really nice wool rug and I paid about 1/5 of the purchase price.
When I tire of it (which I'm sure I will), I should have no problem selling it....maybe even at a profit!

I've had the fabric to make the pillows for the longest time.
About 3 hours...and the pillows were done.  Why did I wait so long?

If you saw my previous post, this pic was taken before I found the leather recliner.

My favorite crow...vintage paper mache' with glass eyes.

 One of my 'strange' collections.....Pumpkin stems!

The cutest little white fan.  
Someone painted it a long time ago.
It works great!

So....that's the tour around the room.
Michael asked me the other night where we are going to put the Christmas tree?
"Rutt Ro"

It's White Wednesday again!
Linking up with Kathleen at Faded Charm for the 125th WW!


  1. Your new rug is really striking. Love the birds. Your pillows add so much. I love your chippy collections. SO much character in this room!

  2. Your home looks so comfy. The rug was a nice find. Great graphic design. Hmmmm, where are you going to put the tree? Love the floral sign.

  3. Love your rug--just ask my husband about my rug-fetish--can't help it. Your decor is awesome; the browns and whites look so great together.

  4. Oh Susie! I love your living room. The rug is perfect with all the chippy, shappy pieces. You do such a great job styling, that's where I get lost. I feel like I have good stuff I just don't don't know what to do with it! Hope to see you at Fancy Flea!

  5. Well, I have finally met someone that collects something that no one else (that I know of) does- Pumpkin stems! lol How cute is THAT?!?! Your room looks beautiful! I absolutely love it. It is serene and peaceful looking. The rug and pillows are a nice match for each other. I also really love that old Virginia Chestnut sign.

    Hope you have a wonderful evening- xo Diana

  6. Your living room is so warm and welcoming...I think the addition of the browns and the rugs make it so. Just lovely!!


  7. That fabric and rug were made for each other! I noticed the rug right from the first photo.
    I'm in need of a rug makeover...I'm a little jealous!


  8. I love it all. Love that rug, all the white...one of my favorites too. YOu have done a lovely job of decorating. I like how your room is put together and that big hutch is awesome too.

  9. Well, my favorite thing is...EVERYTHING!!

  10. Hi Susie!
    LOVE your new room with all the browns and birds! Everything looks so inviting and cozy. I just arrived in Florida tonight and it looks as if I may make it to The Fancy Flea on Saturday morning "on our way" to Orlando! Hope it all works out and that I see you there! :)

  11. Your living room looks so cozy and I like the added "pop" that rug and pillows bring. Funny about the tree....I was just sitting in my living room after dinner tonight thinking the same thing....maybe the dining room this year? I'm know for moving my tress from room to room every year and don't think I've ever had it in the same place...LOL

    Hope you are feeling well:-)


  12. Love your home! That coffee table is fantastic... I'm your newest follower! xoxo

  13. Wow...great rug - works well in your room!

  14. Hi Susie! Well, as usual, everything looks sooo lovely! Love the pop of color from the rug and pillows! You're so talented, gal! And how cool to get such a great buy and a wool rug!!??
