This is our library. I have tons of books. They are stacks everywhere but mostly here. We were given an old door and I asked Don to make me a library table. I painted it a patina green, placed some vintage photos on top and then added glass. It is long like the library tables I remember in grammer school. I found 8 different chairs and painted them all the same color white and didn't pay more than $5.00 for any of them. I love this table. It turned out to be exactly what I envisioned. Because, Don is just that good:)
This is our loveseat in the library that faces the fireplace. So if we are not doing something at the table we can curl up and read a book on here. Fergee thought it was hers. One day I came down stairs and the feather/down pillows were all over the room and she was laying on the loveseat. I swear she was smiling. I was so happy that she didn't rip open the pillows (can you imagine the mess) that I didn't even yell. But I did have a little discussion with her and now we are on the same page.
I have always enjoyed collecting vintage photos. There is just something about having a photo of a gorgeous child, a happy couple wondering what story it may hold. I love to pick out certain expressions, clothing, backgrounds. And then find the perfect frame or other use for it. These are on the walls of our 1st floor foyer.
This WONDERFUL woman is my grandmother on her wedding day. I cherish this picture and am so happy that she gave it to me. She was a mother to me when I was a child. She taught me how to sew, cook, crochet. You name it she could do it. She even said to me one day "Honey, it is time to stand up straight and suck in your tummy" lol. She was the kindest woman I have ever known. I know she is an angel right now - no doubt in my mind. I LOVE memories don't you? Do you ever wonder how lucky you are to have or have had certain people in your life?
This pretty lady in being held by a florists frog. Do you collect vintage photos? How do you display them? I would love to hear.
