The wardrobe below is from my husband's family and it is so beautiful! I know, you're not supposed to put a wardrobe in the living room but I had no other spot and we really enjoy looking at it in the living area. I've put together a little display of vintage mirrors, a lamp, an old cash register drawer and a few other items. As I said, I like a lot of stuff!
We don't have a foyer, this is just a small three bedroom ranch so you just kind of fall into the living room but I have a low boy chock full of goodies right here by the front door. Do you see that old post in the corner? I know it's crazy but I love it. While we were visiting our sons in Savannah, I found it in a junky antique store ~ I just think it's a great souvenir of our trip.
Another crazy thing that I featured a long time ago when I first started this blog is the window above the fireplace that I put botanical prints in the panes ~ I just love it because it's different. And also, the room has a cathedral ceiling and it helps to fill the giant spanse of wall, too. Do you think that mantle will hold up much longer?? I might could fit a few more things on there . . . I know, I have the loveseat in front of the fireplace, but we never use it and I wanted to utilize the space.
One last little tidbit. I love this. Some vintage clip-on earrings are so beautiful. I have pierced ears and don't really want to wear the clip-ons but have found a wonderful way to enjoy them . . . I place one in the center of the top of a lamp shade to dress it up. This one has a pretty mother of pearl center ~ just a small way to give your lamp shade a little "bling." Thanks for looking!
