THREE THINGS

ONE: I got my carpets and couches cleaned by my local Heaven's Best Carpet and Upholstery cleaning operator...(plug for my husband's business!) Call your local operator, you will love the results! Click here to find one. Now I can put my living room back together. They also clean wood floors, tile and grout!
TWO: The gas man came and hooked up the gas fireplace....WE LOVE IT!
THREE: See this sofa table with all the space underneath? I thought this.....
old trunk would look so nice ....HOWEVER, the trunk is too big....boy how I hate that! Now what should I put underneath, the space looks so...spacious! I guess you all know what this means? I will have to go shopping and search for just the right thing! I do have a few old suitcases tucked away, but I can't get to them for a while. So, I guess it might have to be shopping! All suggestions accepted!

I've been away for a while....
So, I love your fireplace and mantel! They did an amazing job. And I never even think of getting the couches cleaned! I've always only thought of the carpet, but I guess the couches get just as much gunk and stuff on them. Now I won't feel clean on mine until they are cleaned!
Your trip to market looks so fun, and I love your story about the detailed grandmothers flower quilt. I will forever be amazed at the talent and effort put into so many quilts out there.
And as for the table space, the trunk is gorgeous! If you're going to have to go shopping anyway, maybe look for a different table that will fit it! You could check out DI or Salvation Army for a boring one that you could paint. I like the suitcases idea too, but it is starting to feel a little over done. Maybe get a big basket that you could fold up or roll some of your quilts into and put that under the table. Then they'd always be close enough to snuggle with too!

I love Heaven's Best! When I moved into this house, we thought that we would have to replace the light carpet. I called our local HB and it looked brand new!!! With 5 boys it is hard to keep this carpet clean, but after they leave it always looks new again:)
Also I love the idea of a basket with your quilts in it! It will add texture and warmth:) Love ya Sheri!

Oh my - a basket for your quilts gets my vote! I love the trunk though. Your fireplace looks beautiful all lit up!

My question is: Are you going to paint the table cream? Haha. I think some cute seasonal decorations would be fun. Some pumpkins for now and some cute Christmas trees with white lights etc. What ever you do it will look wonderful as always.

What you need is a Hobby Lobby! I can't wait to see what you find to go under the little table. My first thought was stacks of cool old looking books, but with the grand-kids that might not be such a good idea.

YEA for Heavens Best!
