Living Room Odds & Ends

I get on a roll.
I'll be blogging away, showing how I've decorated one room or another
or where I've put my flea market finds ...
and then, just like that --
all the sudden,
I just putter to a stop.

I open up a folder of pictures on my laptop & I'm reminded of the little things here & there
that I took a pic of & never got around to showing all you good people.

So, I'm brushing the dust off that folder of pics to show you a few pretty things in my living room.

I bought this old chair at my favorite flea market.
I've almost forgotten how much I paid for it, but I'm thinking it was $6.

And my chippy old ladder.
I love this thing.
It was on my 'want' list for the longest time, til I finally found this one -- the right size & the right price.

And my bright, super fun & fresh green curtains.

I debated on these for several weeks before they made their way into my cart.
I can thank good ol' Lowe's for these pretties.

Now, here's where my my sad, oh so sad & lacking camera skills take center stage.
The light was coming through so bright that, well, I just couldn't seem to make the pic look nice at all.
But, you get the idea, right?

Just wanted to show ya how pretty the curtains look hanging at this window.
I have another double window at the front of the room, but same story ... bad photography.
I'll save myself the embarrassment ;)

Tomorrow, I'll show you my gallery wall.
I'll have to wait to then cause it's changed since I took the pic back in early spring.
I'll show you what it looked like then ... & now.
Better hurry though, huh, cause it's almost time to decorate for fall & the gallery wall
will get yet another little makeover.

Whew ... decorating for fall.
Are you kidding me?
Is it really almost time for that?!

Happy Monday, fellow blogger friends.
Hope it has treated you well.

    1. Thank you, Susie! I am debating laying some tea towels or something over the rungs, but so far, I'm liking it just as it is.

  5. Love the ladder! I'm still waiting to find one for myself at the right price and size. Stop by my Friday's Five Features this week and link up this post (and others)!

    1. The search is part of the fun, huh...until I get impatient ;) Thanks for visiting.

  6. Love the color of your new curtains! I think my living room needs a nice pop of color. Now I just need to find it in a thrifty way! Thanks for linking with TTF this week.
