What’s up with the old, new, copper and blue theme, you ask? Well, a
couple of weeks ago my husband and I celebrated our 30th anniversary and I

Do you have any rooms that are really challenging to arrange furniture in?
This is definitely one of those rooms. Recently I got a new smaller sofa and
chair and matching ottoman and so far they’re working out great. These pieces,

The vintage barrister bookcase and drop leaf table in the far right corner
are some that I’ve had for years and they don’t really fit my current style,
but I’m making them work for the time being. I’m hoping to add a new piece
soon but haven’t found exactly what I’m looking for yet. Stay tuned to see
what I come up with for this corner.
For now, I’m using our vintage drop leaf table as a little beverage area,
which is kind of ironic since I’m using a bar cart as an end table in here.
Why be normal and use things as they were meant to be used?
copper Moscow mule mugs
are a nice addition for fall.
And did you notice my vintage bakelite bar tools? I found them not too long ago and love them. They look great with my
I added a couple of
clay colored linen pillows
for fall and am really liking this color right now. The kitties are loving
the refreshed space too.
They also love hanging out on the deck and napping in our outdoor chairs.
Such a rough life they live, lol.
That pretty much does it for my living room with the old, new, copper, and
blue fall decor. If you love decorating with vintage items, you might also
