Livingroom Pics...

Just thought I would share some pics of my living room. I change my living room for every holiday and season. I just stuck with the Americana look for summer since all the holidays are associated with red,white and blue.
 I still have my winnings from Lisa @ The Moonlit Stitch still on display. I don' teven care if they are Easter. I just think they are too cute to put away.

 I need a new coffee table but I think I'll probably hold on to this one for life. It has sooo many memories to go with it. I would like to paint it and cover up some of the really ugly scratch from all the horse play that went on around it and on I also have some salt dough ornies that I won from Rachel @ Somewhere In The Middle on display.
 This is where I have a lot of my fun decorating for the holidays. I got the white table from my dad, the green barn shutters came from a yard sale years ago for only $5 each. I bought 3 of them but I only have 2 on display. My winnings from Carol @ Firecracker Kid Primitives and Rachel @ Somewhere in the Middle. Don't they look perfect on the table.
 My Willow tree angels. A co worker got me started on collecting them. She gave me my first one as a Christmas gift. Then hubby would surprise me with them time to time or for Christmas.. My favorite was when I got off work one day. In the driver seat was a bag with a card. It was 2 angels with a card. Wasn't that so sweet of him?
 Here are my watermelon slices from Lisa @ The Moonlit Stitch. they were part of our summer swap.

 The deer under the table use to belong to my dad. I gave them to him one year as a Christmas gift. When he passed away, my mother gave them back to me.
 My tv and sideboard that needs a new paint job. Yes, were watching
I just love this. I won it from Rachel @ Somewhere In The Middle. I temporary added the USA . 
 These are a few of my kerosene lanterns. I just started to collect them. My favorite one so far is the purple one with the finger holder.
My stool from Carol @ Firecracker Kid Primitives I made the fabric star and added to my lamp.
 I got this at the Salvation Army and gave it a make over. It use to be brown with the word Keys on it.
 My dad found me this little phone table in the sitting next to the dumpster where he use to work at. All I did to it was just scraps the old finish off and left it as is. He must of gave that to me about 15 yrs ago. I will never get rid of it. I cherish everything my dad gave me and always will.
My poor poor end table. Its getting a make over when the coffee table gets on. I also made the stars in the wagon. My awesome stitchery that I won from Trish @ Me 2 U Primitives
 My picnic baskets,flower in a grunge coffee pot,old iron, crock with my fake fern and some cement yard decor. It was just too cute to put it outside. Plus I'm enjoying it a lot more in the
 My yard sale and very first Raggedy Annie aka "Raggedy Angie" doll with some of my mags. I also made the star with some pip berries on the basket.
  Close up of the wreath I put together. I just sit stuff on my wreath and I have been lucky so far that nothing has fallen off.
 Another close up of a grouping I did.
I just adore my old oak hutch. I would have to say that antique furniture in oak is my total favorite.
 Close up of my flowers and end table grouping.
 My other table is an old trunk. It comes in very handy for storing the game systems the kids have.
I made over the lamp. It is no longer gold. Who is their right mind would paint a wrought iron lamp gold. I like it much better in black.

My shelf I bought at the Goodwill for $5.00. That thing is so heavy. I was about half afraid to hang it on the way. I also made over the little oil lamp that is nestled in the ivy. it use to be a baby blue.
You'll have to excuse the ugly walls and red carpet. I'm not allowed to paint or pull up the carpet.
So as you can tell with my look I am cluttered primitive. I hope you enjoyed a tour of my living room.

I have a few things Daddy gave me over the years and I will always treasure them. All the giveaway items will be special to you also. I have been blessed to have won a few so far and I love them.
