Living Room Redo


January 2011

Hello Everyone,
In a few weeks the leaves will be turning the beautiful color of fall and I will be preparing for holiday entertaining. September is time for my third Garage Sale for 2011 and a Cream Tea for the women of my church to start off our new business year.
October will also be a busy month for My Cozy Corner.  A Fall Wedding in the high desert and  visiting My 90 year old mother while my sister is off on a cruise to Hawaii for two weeks. Plus working my wonderful part-time job at Tuesday Morning.

2011 has flown by. I only have changed the living decor in January and July.


My Sofa Table in January



In January I was experimenting with  this look on the mantle.  Old books, old watches and duck lithograph prints. 


I'm still trying different places for my old watch collection.



August 2011

August brings fresh flowers and I love to bring the garden inside.


'My Cozy Corner'


Old Clock, Old books and some Apothecary Jars.


I moved the Old Watches and some of the Old Books to the top of the book shelf.



My new interest

I still think about my wonderful trip to England and Scotland so I have put the  Magazines I bought in England on my large table next to the fireplace.  


I love England


Double Delight, Ingrid Bergman and Iceberg.
With a touch of Sedum and Artemisia



New Lamp? No!!!  This was originally a dark blue ginger jar popular a few years back.
I asked SWEETHEART to paint it BLACK.  He used 'KRYLON FUSION PAINT'. Bonds to glass and much more.  I was going to use the lamp shade on another lamp, but until I buy a new one this ginger jar is wearing this one.
