I am participating in two blog parties, the first one is the Feathered Friends Party by Gina @ The Shabby Chic Cottage. Check out this link to see more great birdies :)
This is my side table in the living room.
Gotta love Michael's clearance!
I found this little guy, and two of his friends, at a yardsale a couple months ago.
I just love this little bluebird! Another yardsale find. The books are from the thrift, and the yellow pottery is a piece of McCoy pottery I dug out of the back yard!
Remember these guys?
And the other set. Ignore the electronics! My living room is in a state of disorder at the moment.
I ended up putting my chippy birds in the bathroom.
And my Syroco-like birds, too.
What do you think, are they noticeable enough? That's not an acurate example of the shade of blue on the walls, but they dont seem to pop. What do you think?
The second party I am joining is the Decorating Dilemma party, hosted by Amanda at Serenity Now. Check out this link for more dilemmas!
My dilemma is my living room. I was originally planning on using this, and then I got a new dilemma. We had a LARGE entertainment center. 6.5 feet wide and 5 feet tall. But that's gone now, thanks to the edition of a MASSIVE tv. The entertainment center wasnt pretty, but it held a ton of dvds, the Wii, the PS2 and tons of games. Now with this monster, we didnt know where to put anything. (the kids were watching iCarly!)
We ended up putting my cedar chest here, and putting the games inside. The consoles will go inside when we get a chance. You can see all the stuff still piled on top of the tv.
So, how does it look? I know that wall is a massive blank space. It's funny though, as I was taking these photos, we decided to hang some embroidery hoops on the wall. I had been wanting to do it, but hadnt gotten around to it. So this is what we've started with. I've got to find some more a the thrift/yard sales. And decide on some fabric.
How does it look so far? Any suggestions? Does it look weird having that big tv over there? You cant totally tell, but the computer desk is to the right. I am up for any suggestions or ideas!
