Another angle. I love my couches. They're so comfy. Oh, there's Griffey again. This is how he looks when he stalks the mailman. The horses on the wall are a metal sculpture. They're a leftover from my old house when I had a southwestern decorating theme going on. I stuck them on that wall when I first moved in just to take up space until I came up with something else. But then decided I liked them. The wall color brings out all the different shades of rose and pink in the horses.
My fireplace is purely for decorative purposes. It doesn't work anymore. But I have it filled with about 20 pillar candles. When I'm in the mood to light them all, they kind of give the illusion of a fire. I love to surround myself with photos of my favorite people and good memories of times I've had..... so there are picture frames everywhere.
Okay... let me explain about the TV. When I was married, my husband insisted on a big screen. It's such a guy thing, you know. Well, I gave it to him in the divorce. But then realized that I was ruined forever because once you have a big screen TV you can never go back to a normal size. So I went out and bought another one. Griffey insisted on being in every shot as you can see. Oh, if you look close you'll see some of my current China influenced reads on the end table. They are "Wanting a Daughter, Needing a Son", which I highly recommend to fellow China adopters, and an 800 page book on the history of China. Hey, it's actually interesting. But yes, I'm doing it for my daughter. It may take me the entire wait to referral to get through it.
Did I mention that pink and green are my favorite colors? I love color period. There are no completely white walls in my house. All the different shades of pinks, mauve, rose, fuschia and sage, ivy, etc all seem to work together. At least, I think they do.... and that's all that matters in my queen-dom.
Whose brilliant idea was this? Oh yeah... mine. Let me tell you how much painting this sucked. My neck was killing me for several days afterwards. I'd have to get down and lay on the floor to see if I was painting it even or not. What a pain in the ass! All of the ivy was done with stamps which made it much easier than if it'd been a stencil. Hope you like it, but if you don't... well I really don't care. :P
