My Living Room Is Screaming Fall!

Hello, Dear Ones.
I've said this before, I didn't mean to turn my living room into a Fallen colored room, but that's exactly what I've done.

You see a few years ago we decided to start over in our living room and get rid of our olden furniture and buy new.
We gave away, garage sailed and soon the living was bare as a baby's bottom! :)
I had painted the walls in the living room and dining room a soft green.
It was Laura Ashly Olive # 2 - I think - from Lowes.
Anyway, I loved the green and had no idea what furniture would be in here.
I know, I did it kinda backwards.

Well, I saw this Ralph Lauren discontinued sofa and fell in love with it.
Guess what? It didn't have a smidgen of green in it.
I didn't care and threw caution to the wind and bought it.
Then I made my drapes and the fabric was green with dark brown stripes, goldy stripes and a creamy stripes. I made little valances and added some beaded trim.
I was on a roll.

Found a lovely round coffee table with inlaid wood in the shape of a star on the top.
Then two round side tables with  glass insets followed. My little Mother gave me the table between the windows with the spindley legs. She redid this years ago and I have just left it like this. I thought about painting it but I don't want to hurt her feelings. So it'll stay like this for a while.
Next came the two winged back chairs. I searched over two years for these. Still no green.
Do the green and Fallen colors just look awful?
I kinda like it and just think of a tree - green leaves and tree trunks with a little Fallen leaves thrown in.

Well, hope you're not tired of seeing Fallen vignettes because I'm going to show you what's on my coffee table now.

I actually went out in my front yard and picked up some little acorns from the oak trees and poked them into this big vase and then continued adding my little decorative things ending with a candle and a little candle ring.

Poked a sweet little music box we bought in Italy many years ago and popped it upon some little books.
I'm so talented like this you know! :)
Then a trio of round orbs - pumpkins and a large orange (I think it's an orange) .

Hope you've enjoyed seeing my Fallen colored living room.
Maybe one day I'll change the wall color but today it's gonna stay green - Fallen green.

Be a bunch of sweeties,
Shelia ;)

I'll leave you with a little Note Song ~

Green River

Well, take me back down where cool water flow, yeh.
Let me remember things I love.
Stoppin' at the log where catfish bite,
Walkin' along the river road at night,
Barefoot girls dancin' in the moonlight.
I can hear the bull frog callin' me.
Wonder if my rope's still hangin' to the tree.
Love to kick my feet way down the shallow water,
Shoe fly, dragon fly, get back t your mother.
Pick up a flat rock, skip it across Green River.

Up at Cody's camp I spent my days, oh,

With flat car riders and cross-tie walkers.
Old Cody, Junior took me over,
Said, you're gonna find the world is smould rin
An' if you get lost come on home to Green River.
