Changes to the Living Room


It was time for the leg lamp to be moved from the living room picture window.  We decided to move the end table to in front of the living room window and the chairs were moved out a bit.  Our stain glass (similar can be found here) lamp moved with the table.  We have a new piece of furniture coming to the living room soon.  Of course, it is not brand new, that would go against all I have collected for this room.  I will show it to you when I have it here and it's ready.




Here is a close up of the lamp we purchased from an antique store many years ago.  We love stained glass windows, lamps, pendants, and picture frames.  We even tried to purchased a stained glass clock on an auction once, but it was out of our price range.  😞  


I love all of the colors in the shade.


The base lights up, and has tortoise like shells all the way around.  The foot of the lamp is mother of pearl inlay. We fell in love with it when we saw it!  


I purchased this mercury glass tree with rhinestone detail several years ago from TJ Maxx.  I collect mercury glass pieces and tend to keep them out all year round even if they are trees or more holiday oriented.  It goes hand in hand with my "Fancy Pants" love and keeping a bit of sparkle all year round.  



Here is a close up of the lumbar pillows in our channel back chairs.  The chairs came from an antique store that is no longer open several years ago.  I purchased them for $99 a piece!  They are very comfortable and have remained in very good shape.  The pillows were purchased from TJ Maxx on clearance for $15 a piece.   



The teal and aqua colors complement the chairs by the fireplace and I like scattering these colors throughout our living room for pops of color.   


Mr. Vintage's Great Aunt painted this beer stein more than 40 years ago.  Back when painting ceramics was a social outing and you gathered in a ceramic shop to paint with friends and family.   The piece has a lot of detail, and stands nearly 3 feet tall.  She is no longer with us, but a few of the pieces she painted are displayed in our home.  




I will keep you posted on changes to the living room as it unfolds.  I am excited to have another storage piece and a place to work... any guesses on what will be coming soon?  😉
