Antlers and my cozy corner

I had an unexpected break but I'm back and I hope for good. I've missed blogging and my friends. Thank you to those that emailed me to see if all was good, I really appreciate it.

Sooo a while ago before I disappeared I shared my cozy corner with my new lamp....and I can't believe the pictures I shared of my magazines all ratty from little miss Reagan stepping on them. LOL

 
Before:

 
 
Several months ago I got tired of looking at them a mess, I straightened them and added more mags to keep them from sagging. I may or may not have bought a few more ;)
 
I had been thinking of adding antlers above the frame, finally did it and love it! I wish I had done it sooner.
I had the tablecloth made some time ago by a most kind lady on Etsy after I saw my sweet friend Kristi's of The Thrifty Gypsy. (She and I have the same taste and so many of the same things, its funny!)
I already had pillows in the same toile fabric so I thought it would look really great.
 
 
After:

 
I still haven't decided on curtains but the living room is finally starting to come together.

I've been thinking about you, so glad you're back! I love antlers and have used them for a long time, your's look great, the perfect finishing touch to a very comfy corner! I've had a lot going on since Kailyn was born and my Nov eqisode, am not posting as often but still here and enjoying it. Looking forward to seeing what you're up to!

The antlers look really good there! I've been in a blogging funk, girl! Trying hard to get back in it, like you. I just love Kristi for the Thrifty Gypsy. I feel like all 3 of us would have a blast together.

I just found your blog and so glad I did. We share the same style french and english country..what I fondly refer to as "European country!" Love your bedroom and your cozy little corner. Some red transferware plates would look great mixed in with your needlepoint and antlers! Can't wait to see your next post!! GOD BLESS! =)
