~~A Little Red Jewel in a Sunny Spot~~
The back room of our house is our "mud room" ~ just a little room where we come in from outside....it's main purpose is for packing ebay stuff because my ebay closet where I store what I sell is just off of this room. We've had an old plaid couch back there just to have something to sit on but during a walk through our favorite flea market there sat a little "red jewel"!
This little antique love seat is very old, with springs & straw inside, wooden turned legs, & best of all it's RED!....my favorite color! And even better than RED it was only $20 & happened to just fit in the back of our Santa Fe so that I could bring it home. I really fell in love with this little antique ~~ it's not perfect so it fits in perfectly ~ but still in good shape for it's age & I adore it!
Some of my favorite things in this room are the picket fence garden picture & the red geraniums picture, both painted by my very talented mom ~ she also made the stained glass hanging in the window ~~ the little girl mask with grapes is Fitz & Floyd - one of my favorite garage sale finds that I've researched & have never found anything like it....I bought it to sell but couldn't part with it - she's so unique & too cute!
I've filled the wicker basket with some of my favorite Fall back issues of Home Companion & Romantic Homes - a nice reading spot. I love sun rooms & since I don't really have one I like to think of this as my mud~sun~room~parlor! It's bright & sunny & a quiet cozy corner in kattz*cottage! ~~
