Changes in the Living Room

Hello, Dear Ones! You know how it is when spring comes and you start to deep clean and get an itching to change things? Well, I've had that itch and the living room got scratched! :)


Do you like it? I've totally changed the furniture around and I'm just loving it!


This was how it has been for a few years. We bought the sofa about three years ago - I fell totally in love with this sofa. It didn't go with anything we had but I had to have her! Then it took me another couple of years to find chairs to go with it. So this room has been evolving slowly.


I like this arrangement so much more. When you walk in the front door the living room is on the left and this is what you see. I think my totally loved sofa shows up so much better here. Oh, I love my huge round coffee table too. I just love my things! Well, I have a few things I don't love so much! You know how it is. :) I added a couple of little plates and a couple of little prints to go on either side of my large picture and I like this look better too! The large picture has little flowers painted and each title is written in German. I just love this too! :) I'm in love with my living room today, Dear Ones! :)

Here is what is on the coffee table for now. I love my shells in my big ole glass thingy and it was time to dust off the shells and put the glass cleaner to my big ole glass thingy. Poked down a few books and plopped down a little greenery. I'm happy with this for now.

The sun was just a pouring through the windows so this snap looks a little haloed! :)

I put the winged back chairs in each window. I like them here.

Here are the little side tables for the sofa and their toppings. Chocolate? Pineapple? Strawberry?
Hmm...I'm craving a banana split right now! :)

I scooted my baby grand across to the other side of the room. I'm so strong you know! ;) This room is rather small and with my piano it's a little hard to get the furniture placed just right. The little chair on the left with the pretty legs is just a filler until I can recover a sweet little chair my mother gave me. I can't decide on fabric. Shoot!

My gift - my piano! I've had her since 1986! She's getting pretty olden but she's still as pretty as a picture! I just love her and you can see all my little hymnals lined up on her. Most of you know I'm pianist at my church so I always have music out to play and practice.

This is the view when sitting on the sofa looking into the entry and you can see the front doors.

This is the view from the haloed winged back chair. If you walk on through the entry you'd be in the den. Hope you've enjoyed seeing the changes I've made to my living room.

Well, now, here's Miss Chloe Dawn. Hi darling! Would you like to say hello to all of our friends?
Chloe Dawn? Chloe? Oh, my! She is so embarrassed because she needs to go to the beauty shop and she just won't look at the camera. Never fear, darling Chloe, you're going tomorrow! We'll be back with another snap of Chloe Dawn when she's smiling! :)


Oh, I'm hoping you'll all come to my Heart of the Home Party - Show Us Your Favorite Cupboard! It will be so fun peeping into each others cupboards! You can go HERE to find out about it. So I do hope you'll plan on coming!

Shelia ;)

I'll leave you with a little Note Song ~

I Fell the Earth Move


I feel the earth move under my feet
I feel the sky tumbling down
I feel my heart start to trembling
Whenever you're around

Oh, baby, when I see your face
Mellow as the month of May
Oh, darling, I can't stand it
When you look at me that way

I feel the earth move under my feet
I feel the sky tumbling down
I feel my heart start to trembling
Whenever you're around

Oh, darling, when you're near me
And you tenderly call my name
I know that my emotions
Are something that I just can't tame
I've just got to have you, baby

I feel the earth move under my feet
I feel the sky tumbling down, tumbling down
I feel the earth move under my feet
I feel the sky tumbling down, tumbling down

I just lose control
Down to my very soul
I get hot and cold all over

I feel the earth move under my feet
I feel the sky tumbling down
Tumbling down
Tumbling down
Tumbling down
Tumbling down
~ sung by Carole King
