Living room ...

A few more shots of our living room...I took this photo last week and I'm noticing things are already arranged differently! I can't keep up with myself!!! Ha. The matching white lamps with butter yellow shades I found at Pottery Barn. Shades were $11.00 ea. Great day in the mornin!!!!....Happy dance!

I love to crackel things... This old door for example, then I positioned it behind a
desk and decided to hang feathery greens and some starfish...

Yellow shades give of a very soft glow in the evening, especially with the butter yellow walls as a background...and the yellow door.

My friend Kathy painted this lovely picture which I fell in love with when I saw it...
I whined until she gave it to me....It is the colors in my living room and I love it! If you whine loud enough your friends give you things to silence you...I use whatever works!!! Thanks Kathy... Happy Sunday my friends, xoxo~Kathy


  1. Such a lovely room. I love the colors and all the beautiful accessories are displayed very creatively. Just gorgeous. Hugs, Marty

  2. Hi Kathy
    I love the fact that you are a woman who knows how to get what she wants :)
    The painting was worth whining for !
    Your living room is simply gorgeous.
    My hubby thought when I began blogging I would at last stop moving everything around ,Ha
    Now I get inspired to move things around more frequently .
    Blessings to you sweetie.
    Thank you for sharing the lovely photos.

  3. I thought my daughter was the Whining Queen! She also thinks it's the best way to get what she wants........she's 38.

    I love the picture and your living room looks soooo cozy!


  4. Hi Kathy! Your blog is just beautiful as is your home! I love that white look, but I have to enjoy it on wonderful blogs like yours...too much cat hair! lol Hope you are having a great weekend...Debbie

  6. Kathy is a nice friend and her painting is lovely and goes well with your colors.

  7. Oh I love your color combinations and the door behind the end table is such a great idea!! Makes a great place to hang anything...your colors are so soft and romantic...just love it! Miss Bloomers/Sonia

  8. Hi Kathy,
    I am loving the big pictures...the only thing is there are not many backgrounds to choose - not so pretty...but, I figure that maybe with the popularity they may expand.....and then my big pictures will fit right in ! Just go to the Cutest Blog on the Block (where yours came from ) and look at the strech minima....when you add photos (I downloaded Windows Live Writer- cuz it is free and you just drag your photos from folders instead of searching for them) I click on the picture and change the size - just the first one to around 700- you have to play with it....If you are wanting to do it and have any questions....let me know - ya know where I am, LOL !
    Hugs ~ Kammy

  9. LOL I do a lot of whining lately and it got me some curbing in the back yard and a promise an extended patio deck and lovely curving sidewalk along the back of our home!
    Whining works...and look at the lovely painting it got you!! Can't say enough about whining! :)
    Your home is just adorable. The door..just stole my heart!


Thank you for taking the time to share your thoughts with me...I am always encouraged by your kind expressions and thoughtful comments....Know that you are loved....xoxo Kathy.
