A new lamp where I sleep

Hi all! Thank you for the warm welcome back.
A few weeks ago I purchased this vintage alabaster lamp off ebay. I'm still searching for another for Justin's side of the bed. The burlap shade was in the attic from the lamp downstairs with the green shade.

It is gorgeous!!!

Kitty thinks so too.

I haven't made any changes to our room since the makeover. Ok I made one change, I brought the basket downstairs to store decorating books beside the couch and put the other chair. I would really love to find a upholstered settee for the end of the bed.

Beautiful warm glow

Another view from outside the hall.

I still need to have curtains made. I already have several yards of toile fabric that matches the comforter at the end of the bed. But I'm not ready to make the commitment yet LOL The same goes for the chairs at the end of the bed that I want to have reupholstered. It is so difficult making decisions regarding fabric. Do you have the same problem? I'm going crazy!!
Have a happy week!

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


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.

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