  • Living Room Decorating

    I haven’t spent too much time decorating our living room yet because we hope to be doing some construction projects in there later this year. That said, the house was extra quiet this morning (Kevin had a date with his Dad), and I was in the mood to do a little jooshing. Or zhushing. Or however you spell that wacky word. ;-)

    Here’s what I came up with…and excuse the blurry/bright pics. Our tripod was in the car that Kevin took to his parent’s house- ha!

    Some of this stuff was already in the entertainment unit, and some of it I pulled from other spots around the house…

    My friend, Mary, sent me this vintage toy trailer last month and I am quite smitten with it:

    She also sent me home with this “2″ plaque when we visited her in May:

    I just used shipping tape to (temporarily) stick it to that photo box. I’m sure it’ll move somewhere else eventually, but I like it there for now! :-)

    The bird quote is fairly new, too. The art was created by my friend, Courtnie, and I absolutely love it! (The frame came from Ikea.)

    A bird does not sing because it has an answer. It sings because it has a song.


    Happy jooshing/zhushing, birdy-girls!
