CORNERS of the living room






If you have been around Crooked Shmooked since the beginning then you know that this blog was started as an attempt to follow what was supposed to be a quick remodel. It turned into over a year of the husband and I living with my parents while our house was worked on by family on and off. It was finally finished a month or so before the babe was born, but I haven't given a house tour yet and have been nervous to show any photos with decorating gaps throughout the house. My ideal was to have the remodel and decorating done before April of 2010 when Lil' A was born, but as Robert Burns said-- The best laid schemes o' mice an' men / Gang aft a-gley.

So, no living room tour yet, but these are some corners that I am liking right now...
1 - our unfinished photo wall: prints by Katie Daisy and JellyBeans, triangle collage by me
2 - thrifted globes
3 - a dottie angel wall hanging, gma and gpa back in the day, a tin found in my German gma's sewing kit after she passed, a bird terrarium a friend brought me when I was sick, thrifted milk glass with gma's wooden daisy
4 - IKEA lamp, World Market curtain, Nick & Nora zebra print blanket, vintage embroidery
5 - thrifted paint by number, vintage and antique books from various places, brass swans from the sister

Stopping by from the Blog Hop.
I like how your living room has character to it. Like each item is a conversation piece.
I love the swans
