This first photo is what I call my "fancy poodle lady" drawing that is above the TV in the living. I pretend it's me and Miguel. (-:
This photo is looking at the front door. Lots of browns and blues. That's Brinkley by the front door.
Here is the nearby corner... TV - this is our only TV... fyi... no cable. Ha. and our little wicker basket that we keep Brinkley's toys in. (-:
Okay - here is my favorite wall. I found this vase at a very unique furntirue store and I LOVE the peacock feathers. I just love it.
Isn't it beautiful? And here's the whole wall. The painting is Coffee Art - the local artist uses espresso as her paint. My friend and I made the pillows to match the ottoman.
And here's a more front view of it. And there's Miguel in front of the couch. He's REALLY good at sneaking into most pictures.
So that is our living area. Other areas to come.
So.... last weekend Mark and I went to my grandmother's house. While we were there we went to an antique store and I found an AWESOME bench. It was not in great shape, but lots of polish, TLC, and some woodglue later, this is what it looks like: (PS - this was only $45!)
So I got this brilliant idea to make a pillow. So I found the perfect fabric at Hobby Lobby after going to several decor stores and not finding a pillow I liked. Here is the fabric below:
So, I haven't really ever made a pillow by myself. I was so proud of myself, hand sewing this pillow... doing all the measurements. I wanted it to be a good size for the bench. Well, I apparently didn't take into consideration that the pillow would shrink significantly whenever I put stuffing in it. So the big pillow project turned into the midget, doll pillow project. Check this out:
So, it looks pretty small on the bench. Good thing I got enough fabric to make another one. Ha.
So, now you have a sneak peak into our home. I hope you enjoyed it! (-:
ALSO, I LOVE YOUR COMMENTS. It's hard for me to know if anyone reads or cares - and your recent comments have been very encouraging. Thank you very much - keep them coming! (-:
