Hi again, sports fans!
Yesterday I blogged about our new art ledges:
While photographing said art ledges,
a few more snapshots of our living room.
Let’s have a quick look-see, shall we?
First up, my awesome red + white target artwork:
My friend, Alan, made it.
He has a new biz called Boxcar Home,
so look for him at pop-up markets in + around Chicago.
He + I may do one together, later this fall — stay tuned!
Exciting, no? But back to our living room!
The top of our sorter is currently sporting my old RedBird sign.
I stenciled it on an old plank from a cupboard,
which we found in the basement of our brick bungalow.
And look at that wonderful butter churn that G.O. bought last Sunday!
A couple of close ups of our sorter’s original gray paint:
Here are a few photos of the sorter’s cubbies.
Our dad caught this foul ball at a Cardinals game in the late 50’s.
The display stand is from Land of Nod.
I super love this miniature yellow ware bowl,
+ the small ‘pineapple’ patchwork ornament that my sister, Kathy, made:
Just a few of my dozens of books,
with the cutest blue + white floral bowl, ever!
I snapped some of our other living room happiness,
including this framed photo of my parents:
I bought that sponged frame at a folk art show, years ago.
My parents are seated on my old twiggy bench,
on the patio of the house we built on a riverfront lot.
Yikes. That was 2 houses ago!
We just listed our most recent past house!
Disclaimer: we accepted an offer earlier this afternoon.
It’s been sold!
