Merry Christmas to all my readers, and thanks for visiting and your lovely comments. First thing: The rugs are from Overstock.com but I got mine at Marshall's and TJMaxx after discovering them online. The 8x10' version (with the circles) is on order.
After a little rearranging here is the 5x7' rug in the living room. I set up Dave's flea market desk as our stereo shelf. We had to raise the ceiling lamp because we kept bonking our heads. This is supposed to be the dining area. Ha. Not for us.We assembled the new dining room set, which is as Goldilocks said, just right. I am enjoying the light reflecting off the whiteness which brightens that part of the room.
I covered the white couch with a QAYG quilt, and had to wash it once already, but at least it is getting used. Suddenly color has invaded our space, making it so much more inviting. I dreamed of all the quilts I have that might work on the walls here.
