My new living room

Hello my friends ~ it has been a little while.  Mr. Vintage and I have been very busy finishing up the living room.

I love the way it turned out.  I love the soft white which is Beautitone's "vanilla sugar" ~

I made "no sew" drop cloth curtains, and I adore them ~

Since the palette is very muted, I just had to have a little pop of color, so I left the old dresser in here ~

I made little drop cloth curtains for the small window by the stair case ~

A few added pretties ~

I had to keep my little turquoise table in here too ~ with a little pink chair underneath ~

After I was finished painting, I decided to leave the fireplace the way it was ~ You can see that I need to make curtains for the two windows here, but I ran out of drop cloth ;-)

I am getting some more tomorrow.  So you know what I will be doing ~

I love, love, love my living room ~

What have you been doing lately?

Welcome to my mess

Happy Sunday ~  Guess what?  Something different, it's snowing again ~

This time, it's a sparkly snow ~ very beautiful ~

Well, it's snowed such much here in Ontario that we have set a record ~ an all time high snowfall this year.  So, when it's nasty outside ~ what's a girl to do?

Yes~! redecorate ;-)

I have taken everything off the walls, except the clocks. A girl needs to  know what time it is ~ There's Chico on the couch, always has to be near to see what Mommy is up to ~

The other end of the living room.  I think I had a lot of stuff on the walls.  Just look at all of the patching I have to do.

This weekend, did the patching of all of the holes and finished painting the ceiling.  

Next weekend, the walls ~ I am still a bit undecided as to the colour.  

So, while I thought about it, I made some chilli ~ would you care for some?

Chilli is always good on a cold day.  It warms the heart ~

Go ahead, dig in and tell me, what colours do you like best in the living room?

Please do tell

Please join me

Hello my friends ~

This morning we awoke to find another snow storm brewing ~

I stayed home from work today.  It was just unsafe to go ~ so now that I am at home, would you care to join me?

I have tea ready ~ nice and hot ~

Come and sit ~ relax  ~

Would you care for a chocolate?

They are delicious ~ I picked these up at Golden Chocolates ~ ;-)

A little bird would help this little tea party.  We can talk of Spring, the birds singing, the flowers blooming and the sun shining ~ ahhhhhh ~

Thank you for joining me for tea today.  I am dreaming of Spring.  I think I will order my seeds for my vegetable garden...

What are you doing today? 

Can't wait to hear from you
