and here's the Living Room.....

Kelly is hosting a "Show Us Where You Live" over on her blog today.
Today she's highlighting Living Rooms. If you've ever wanted more ideas for decorating, or just want to look at different styles, head on over and take a peek.
Here's a quick look around my living room.

This is taken from the middle of the room, looking towards the front door. I've had my front door painted red (my favorite color) since I first had our house built. I've gotten a lot of compliments on it. The rocking chair is a very sentimental piece, it belonged to my MIL. She used to rock my husband (now deceased) in it when he was a baby. I recovered it in a denim fabric--it had a lot of wear and tear, as it is over 55 years old. Two of the pillows in the chair also belonged to her, and the other one is a yo-yo pillow I put together.



To the right of the front door is our TV and book shelves that line the walls on the sides of the fireplace. I love having lots of shelves!

Over the fireplace hangs an old window frame my sister made for me. She put a mirror behind the frame and distressed the wood. You can see I still have my Valentine garland hanging up---I decided I needed to photograph my house more often, I tend to see more details I would like (or need) to change!

My recliner in the corner--I spend a lot of time here, knitting, crocheting, reading, looking at magazines, etc.

The back of the living room, looking out to the screened in porch. To the right is the dining room and kitchen. I really like all of the natural light, I'm so glad I put in a lot of windows when we built. Thanks for looking!!
