Making Progress with my Living Room!

  
I just finished sewing the rose barkcloth drapes and throw pillows for the sofa and I  would still like to paint the walls cream, but for now I have progressed to this point. I just love the vintage sheer ruffled priscilla curtains I recently found out antique shopping with my friend Lori Martin of  Two Wild Roses. Now it's back to preparing for the March 4th & 5th Vintage Marketplace at my Studio and in my Yard. Check my website for more info!
Also please join me over at the "Wow us Wednesday" party to enjoy a whole bunch of creative women sharing their latest ideas !!!

  6. Very Lovely ... I love the mirrors, & my favorite is the rug. I want it!!! LOL! I would love to have one like that for my family room too. It needs to have red in it not so much of the rosy color. I love the Rose color but it wouldn't go in my family room. If you would ... I would like to know where I could find one like it? I so enjoyed your post. I'll be back! :)

  14. OMGosh- Those curtains (drapes) are just gorgeous. Do you happen to know the name of that pattern? I am IN LOVE with them! If I ever visit check under my coat on the way out just in case I try to steal them!

    The whole room is gorgeous and I especially love the rug!

    Wonder if you were able to access that website that I sent you...the one for decorative artists giving lessons?

    Hope you have a wonderful night, Christie! Hugs- Diana

  22. Your living room is really bang on. You have installed all the cabients very well. I think that You have to bring pendanat light for your living room. Its good choice for you.
