Some updates to downstairs

Here are the new brown slipcovers I purchased, and some floral pillows to go with. White in this room during the summer just do not work. Too many dirty bare feet on the white makes a mom go crazy (that would be me!)


My painting was hung up behind the sofa. Feels a bit more like home to me. Lots more work to go in here, but not until the kids are grown. For now, this is the "play room."



Over the toy cabinet, and some nice flowers given to us by my cousin's yesterday. Thanks Robert, Laura, M and O!

Did you paint that painting hanging over the white sofas? I love it. Your home is warm and beautiful.

Babzy: Yes, I painted both, and thank you. I want to paint over them and start fresh. I painted the pear painting when I was pregnant with Carly, and the green landscape one...maybe around the same time.

Now I feel all inspired to do a painting. I have all the supplies including canvases. I just haven't been able to get motivated. (too sad about missing my son I suppose - see just typing this gives me tears).

I'm going to put your Pears on my desktop for inspiration. Maybe it will do the trick.
