Hallelujah! That Was Then and This Is Now!!

Hello Dear Ones! (I'm posting this early for Monday and for Tuesday - forgive me - I'm gonna milk this post because I'm so very busy right now) I'm so very excited because I got new chairs for my living room! Woo Hooness! I think I'm in love with my new winged back chairs in my living room. What? You ask can you love new winged back chairs in the living room? Well, you bet your 'sit down and rest a spell' you can! :)

Feast your most gorgeous peepers on my new love...you like?
Warning! Warning, Will Robinson...photo heavy!

Here's where my story begins and you know how I love to tell you little stories...
Once upon a time we wanted to start redecorating the living room. So out with the old stuff, well, most of it anyway. The old sofa and love seat ~ gone! The old coffee and end tables ~ gone! Old carpet ~ gone! But my tapestry covered winged back chairs were going to remain. Mr. Precious had purchased these for me way back in the 70s and we loved them and even had them recovered. So they were going to remain. The search for a sofa was on and on and on...no luck.
Then one day, I spied this sofa from the Ralph Lauren line by Henredon. It had been discontinued and the price was right and I fell in love with it. I fall in love easily with furniture. It's cream and rust, never had this color before, and we were ready for something different. Never did we realize how difficult it was going to be to find chairs to blend with it.

Well, you can see in the top part of the moasic my adored tapestry covered winged back chairs did not work with the pattern of my newly acquired lovely sofa! The horror! The shame! I got dizzy every time I walked into my living room! Long story short...poked the adored tapestry covered winged back chairs somewhere else in the house and started the search for more chairs! Woopee! We found them even though it took over two years! Yep, it did, Dear Ones! I'd just rather do without til I found what I wanted. Didn't know it would be more winged back chairs, but it was. I think I just love winged back chairs!! Can you love winged back chairs? You bet your flight pattern you can! :)

It was hard to take a photo of my new loves and get the color right. But the color in the chairs is a tad lighter than the rust color in the sofa.

Slowly but surely my living room is coming together. I need an accent color for some pillows and it's very hard to decide what will go with this rust color. My friend Paula at Paula Grace Designs told me a blue print with the rust color in it would work. What do you think? So the search will be on.
So grab a little cup of tea, sit back and I'll take you on a tiny tour. Well, actually as I said before ~ a loooooooooong photo heavy tour! :)

Big old round coffee table with inlaid wood, I love this piece too. She is wearing her summer duds at the moment.

Being coastal we have to have our shells. I filled my big old etched jar ( I love this, by the way!) with shells and a candle. Poked down some greens, books and topped it off with a star fish shell.



I have two end tables like this and love them too. The tops have beveled leaded glass where I just poke stuff all over them. Love me some tiny bird doo dads! The lamps, I love them too, were purchased at The Bombay Company many moons ago. Sob sob...it breaks my tiny most sad heart that they shut their tiny doors! :(

The other end table with more bird stuff poked on top!

Here's the other side of the room where my piano sets. This is where I play my little note songs!

Here is an olden 'center table'. Guess what? I love this too! :) It has a collection of one of my favorite mags on the bottom ~ Tea Time. On top I have a cloche with a little bird poked under it and all of this is sitting upon some decorating books. Then I have three pieces of crystal. I just love me some shiny bling. Oh, I tossed off the doiley that was on the tabletop and shined up the wood. My table is breathing so much better now!

Hanging over the center table is an oil painting painted by a friend. Bluebonnets in Texas! Gotta love this!

Then another favorite lamp ~a chinesey looking ginger jar lamp. You wanna know something? I love this too. I'm thinking of spiffing it up with some trim like Marty at A Stroll Thru Life did and so many others of you! Do ginger jar lamps go with bluebonnets! Yes sirree you bet your soy sauce they do! :)


As you can see, I have a little tiny living room and my piano takes up quite a bit of the space so with my windows coverings I just placed one panel to each side of both windows. I made them and have the same ones in the dining room but with a different beaded trim. You see this poor little lone chair? Hopefully she will be gone soon. I have a lovely chair my mother gave me that will sit in this spot one day! It's covered with blue crushed velvet at the moment. That will have to change!

uh oh...

Sorry this is a bit blurry. Chloe Dawn startled me as she came in here bringing her baby and wanted me to play with her. Not now, Darling, Mommy's taking pictures.

She loves to have her picture taken and begged and begged me to include her in my post. You know she's spoiled and gets her tiny way when she looks at me like that with those big ole brown eyes. So here is Chloe Dawn trying so hard to look photogenic! :)

Well, that's the tour and I'm so glad you came! Please just ignore the dog toys in the living room.

Here's where I poked my beloved tapestry covered winged back chairs ~ in the dining room for now.

uh oh...

I told you she was spoiled! :)

I'm joining lots of parties today hosted by:

Our Dear Susan at Between Naps on the Porch for Met Monday
Our Dear Mary at Little Red House for Mosaic Monday
Our Dear Cielo at The House in the Roses for Show Off Your Cottage Monday
Our Dear Sally at Smiling Sally for Blue Monday
Our Dear Marty at A Stroll Thru Life for Tabletop Tuesday
Our Dear Paula at Paula Grace Designs for Timeless Tuesday

So be a bunch of sweeties,
Shelia ;)

Oh, before I leave you, I wanted to remind you about my party on Friday, May 7th! It's going to be a
Daring Darling Bathroom Beauty Snapping Diva Party!
Oh, it will be so much fun. If you don't come, my tiny little grand daughter will be so sad!


You wouldn't want to make her sad would you?



Hadn't you rather see her like this?
I know I would! I'm shameless, I know. I'm just so proud of her. She's my first and only grand baby so forgive me! :)


So please come to my party! For all of the information, just click here. You can take this little button that I made this for you with my most tiny dainty fingers and place it on your blog!

See you Friday!

I will spare you a little Note Song today due to my loooooooooooooongness!

  5. Shelia, your living room looks beautiful. The new chairs are perfect, and you have so many pretty tables in this room. Love the drapes too. I think the tapestry wing backs look pretty in the d.r. too. Both of your babies are adorable. Chloe Dawn can put on a face that makes you want to spoil her. And that precious new little baby is the sweetest. Love the way you tied in her photos to your upcoming party. I'm looking forward to seeing all of the bathroom divas. laurie

  9. Its thrilling when you find the perfect fit after a long drawn out search. We can feel your joy and are excited with you. Oh, blue velvet, now there's a blast from the past... When you have it covered, keep some of the velvet, make a pillow from it for a keepsake. I reupholstered a sofa from my grand mom's home a few years back. To keep her memory I did kept all the dark green velvet, made 3 lower lumbar pillows from it. They are now sitting on the sofa. Your sweet Chloe is precious, we had a schnauzer growing up, Her name was Suzi, they sure do have attitude. AND what an angel face, I would be popping my buttons everyday if I had a grand daughter half as pretty.

    God's Blessing to you and yours each and every day!

  24. I love your living room. It looks very warm and comforting. I am such a monocramatic decorator. I can't see blue as an accent color, but it may look beautiful. Rust is one of my favorite colors. In fact my bedroom is rust - of course now "they" call it brick!!

    ReplyDelete
  25. Gorgeous...gorgeous! GORGEOUS I say.

    And...the pic of your little sweetie with the scratched out name "DADDY" made me roll over and over with laughter. Hysterical.

  26. It's so good to see Chloe Dawn! She's so cute and photogenic. She's such a good girl.

    I want to kiss that cute little nose on your granddaughter. She's a doll!

  27. Hi Shelia...Love your new wing backs...worth waiting two years to find those beauties!

  28. Whew! Where to begin? LOVE the new chairs ... they are just ASKING for someone to place their tiny behind in one of them and rest a spell!

    The whole living room is lovely -- and you really have a GREAT talent for staging beautiful tabletop displays. Gorgeous.

    I love that big etched hurricane glass, too -- and it does look so "beachy" and yet elegant too, with the shells.

    Love it all. As for pillows on the sofa -- what about taking different shades of the rust? Like the shades of color you find on one of those strips at the paint store. Or, gold? Is there a color in the new chair upholstery you can pick up on?

    More, please. Love this post!

  38. Shelia, your living room looks lovely. The new chairs are perfect.

    Blue is right. It is definitely the color you need for your accent. My mother had those colors in her living room once, and it was quite striking. You'll be surprised how it will make the other bits of blue you have in your room pop.

    Be sure to give that little beauty a hug from her Aunt Beverly

  42. Shelia,
    Your new chairs look great. I like them a lot with that Ralph Lauren couch. Swoon, I would love anything from Ralph Lauren. I love you candle and sea shells also. I also love your birds on the end tables. I went to Bombay Company's web site and they say they are restructuring and will be reopening. I hope that is true. I miss that store also. Love it all, it looks fantastic!

  69. Sheila ~ you are such a delight! I love your new chairs. I also love the little lonely one you're about to cast off. I have a good home for it!!! I know, you're replacing it with the one from your mother covered in blue crushed velvet. I'd like to see it before your cover the velvet. I bet its heavenly just the way it is. Your grand daughter is adorable!!!! Don't worry, I'll stay a sweetie just for you. Thanks for joining Timeless Tuesday!

  83. Well...well....YOU ARE CRAZY, you know that don't you! ? Ha!! I know just what you mean about trying to match your couch and chairs. I have a couch and chair in my piano room that are crazy with pattern!! When my MIL moved we placed her couch in the same room because my son wanted us to store it for him. The really weird thing is that it basically matches! Same colors and they look like they go together!! But in my "sun" room I have some old dreaded couches that I have covered with some twin bedding because I can't STAND them any more. AND my hubby will not have me spend money on others at this point since eventually we may down size and not need them (like in 6-8 years!!!) ...but I kindof agree, we are penny pinchers!!! I had to laugh at your bathroom diva thing--I will have to see what that is about. My bathrooms are far far far far from being anything related to diva-hood!!
