autumn nearly came and went before i got around
to asking the hubs to retrieve our little bin of
autumn splendor. one little bin. one. yes, one.
you read that right. last year i downsized
the autumn decor down to one small bin
and i'm glad to have done so.
in light of downsizing
this is an easy process to put up
and take off once the season begins/ends.
welcome to our living room..
i'm allergic to roses ..
i ♥ the scent but the aroma and whatever else
the blossom puts off sends me to orbit with puffy
eyes and reaching for my inhaler. so, i don't do roses
inside the house unless they're the
non-smelly variety which is rare.
but roses on fabric or wood pieces?
for now the gallery wall remains. i have ideas though and look forward to simplifying the wall space, making it more streamlined .......... though i admit to loving each and every picture. we'll see how that progresses.
we gifted our big sage green sofa to our niece and her hubby .. they live north of the 'lost coast' so came to visit a couple days and left with the sofa all neatly wrapped in plastic for the 5 hour ride home. glad it went to family. they've become owners of some other things as well .. heirlooms from the hubs side of the family.
that ottoman is actually our old breakfast table. we shortened the legs, then painted them using Miss Mustard Seed's Curio Milk Paint. fabric glue, muslin, stapler, foam, gorgeous decorator fabric (this one is Waverly) .. and you have a large ottoman that can be used to elevate tired legs as well as extra seating for larger crowds. win win.
in place of the big sage sofa we opted for a smaller piece and neutral in color. it sat a tich low so i ordered new feeties from amazon and we changed them out, adding 5" in sofa height. cuz when you're 5'2" you need the extra height. wink.
sometimes the walls photograph much more screaming yellow zonker than they actually are. they're not that yellow. really. pinky promise.
i like yellow but not screaming yellow zonker yellow.
a few autumn'y books grace the little dresser that sits between our two comfy chairs. the dresser houses my extra books, magazines, and general junque ..
on the other wall is a pretty and petite sideboard. simple simon touches..
need to put some junque in the bird house.
like .. a bird. or sumpin.
and that's it, folks.
happy autumn prettiness.
studying the pictures above makes me want
to get rid of SO much, scaling back to a
minimalist living situation.
makes me nervous, all that pattern
and things .. just .. things!
that may very well happen.
the minimalist thing.
