Changing Up My Living Room
As I wrote in my previous blog post,
I spent last weekend moving furniture and art

patina that I just love.
I placed one of my larger hand painted
pillows on the couch just to give
the room a little artful punch.
At some point, curtains have to be hung in
the front two windows just to soften

a piece of art I bought many years ago.
The person-shaped piece has a little
door that opens in the front with a
wooden purse inside.

I received many years ago. It was supposed

It's my version of the disco ball.
To date, this is my living room.
Who knows when I will get the
itch to start moving the
