A new couch and chair ~

Hello my friends ~ it is a beautiful day today.  I have waited so long to do this ~ laundry on the line ;-)

The fairies are loving this weather and things are starting to pop ~

I have been looking for a new couch for my living room for quite a while.  I wanted an Ikea Ektorp couch, but Mr. Vintage was not crazy for it ~ so I continued the search.

Well, today was my lucky day.  I found a couch and chair on Kijiji and it is perfect ~

Here is the chair ~

Here is part of the couch ~ the material is wonderful and they just fit in perfectly ~ Even Mr. Vintage likes it ~ It is an antique couch which was totally redone.  I love the material ~

I am very happy now.  Love this look ~ It was really funny, but the lady I purchased these from was one of my daughter's primary school teachers ~ It's such a small world

Even Chico loves the couch ~ he can look out the window from the arm of the couch ~

I'm very happy with the look.

Have you found anything that you absolutely love lately?

Do tell

We have Easter Bunnies ~!

Happy Easter my friends ~

The table is set ~

The flowers are beautiful ~

We are ready for a wonderful Easter dinner with our family

By the way ~ we have Easter Bunnies~!

Mr. Vintage and I have been working hard trying to get the gardens cleaned out after this long long hard winter ~

Plants are starting to pop

including my poppies ~       ;-)

Well, we got to the back part of our garden and we discovered a little bit of fluff ~

Momma bunny has a nest in our garden ~ shhhh ~ the babies are sleeping.  We just could not disturb this nest ~ so I guess that part of the garden will wait a couple of weeks until the babies are big enough to move around.

Yes, we do have Easter Bunnies ~  we'll let them rest ~

I hope all of you have a Happy and safe Easter with family and friends

Spring and a little Easter Vingette

Happy Saturday my friends ~

It is just beautiful here in Ontario.  The sun is shining, the birds are singing and so is my heart ~

I've been fluffing and puttering around the Vintage household.  I am taking a break from painting ~

My heart is singing ~ Spring is here~! Spring is here~! 

A little Easter vignette ~

Mr. Vintage bought me this Easter Lily ~ so pretty.  Just remember, for my friends who have pets, keep them away from your pets ~ they are poisonous to pets if chewed or eaten and can be fatal.

Mine is up on a tall cabinet, Chico can't get to it ~

I'm now going outside to enjoy this beautiful weather ~

What are you doing today?

Can't wait to hear

Family Room is done ~

Happy Sunday my friends ~

The sun is shining and it is 61 beautiful degrees ~ I love this weather.  

Well, I finished the family room just in time to enjoy this gorgeous sunshine today ~

Well, here it is.  You must tell me what you think ~

I wanted this room to reflect us as a family.   A place where we can sit and relax.  Nothing fussy ~ just like a pair of old faded jeans.

There is definitely me in this room ~

and Mr. Vintage as well ;-)

Chico likes this room too ~ he think's Daddy's chair is his chair ~ hmmmm wonder who will sit here ;-)

I love this fireplace mantel

I brought in my little crib ~ I have longed for a place to put this crib.  Well, now it has a new home ~

I still have a little tweaking to do with this little sweetie, but I will fluff and fluff until I get it just right ~

Well, please tell me ~ what do you think?

We have been enjoying this room for the past couple of days and we just love it.

Can't wait to hear from you
