Gosh it's been a while since I shared some decorating around the house. The living room got an autumnal update recently. I'm enjoying the simple, rustic look. Some of the items that didn't sell at the Vintage Bazaar ended up in this room. Lucky me!
These glass candles were wrapped with vintage doilies for a pretty glow:
One of the coffee sack art pieces I made ended up in front of our fireplace. I'm secretly happy I only sold one of these - I love this one here:
This Mother Hubbard Squash was a big attraction at the bazaar as well, and it was only meant for decoration! Some folks wanted to buy it:
I adore this big white pumpkin, too:
Simple linens on an old cabinet...
The other side of the living room needed some freshening up, so I actually removed the antique daybed and put it back in storage (gasp!). Truth is, we didn't sit there much and it is a BIG piece for this room. I filled the space with a chair and cute garden table I found:
Next to that is the white buffet in the back of the living room. Some burlap, my Santos cage doll, and sweater pumpkins were all that was needed there:
The desk in the other corner got another Mother Hubbard squash. Such a neat color!
Here's another view of the desk from afar. At the corner of the couch you can see a great milk crate I got from the Vintage Bazaar:
I bought it from Amy of Sage and Twine and I just love it for storing my JDL mags!
This and other rustic pieces really pull together the look I was going for. This galvanized bucket is another example:
And of course no room is complete without vintage books!
