Latest Shenanigans

I've been a little lazy the last few days, mostly due to a stiff neck!  Before it got so bad though, I did rearrange the living room furniture.  The jury is still out on whether or not I like it this way!  I'm trying to give myself time to get accustomed to it.

Ever since we built the house 15 years ago, the back of the sofa was the view upon entering the front door.  The room is open, has practically no walls for furniture placement, so that has worked even though I don't like seeing the back of the sofa!

Here is the before:
(sofa with slipcover)
See the front door to the right.

Here is the current arrangement.

 Everything is pulled away from the walls.  

The sofa was moved to the opposite wall, with the love seat to its left, and the recliner sits where the sofa once was.
It looks more welcoming without the sofa sitting on that side, but I'm just not sure I like this!  Maybe if I switch out the rug to the more muted one.  I'd love to know what you think.  I'm open to suggestions.

On another note, I found these two bowls at the Good Will.  I don't know if they are transfer ware or not.  They are stamped on the bottom with a number and "Made in England".  I loved the red!


I gave $1.91 for the large one, and $1.71 for the smaller one.

I added this home decor book to my ever growing collection for $1+.  It was the color of the week.



Here is where the canvas I got last week ended up. The smaller picture goes well with the canvas.

 My little spot of spring!
I wrapped this candle with some scraps from my fabric stash.  I've seen these in the stores for ten to fifteen dollars.  The doily is one that I started with thread.  It fit here perfectly.


That's the latest from here.  What have you been up to?
