Some things for the living room

I thought I would show you some of the things that will be in the living room of my little shabby cottage.

I was delighted to get a parcel in the mail today - inside was this absolutely stunning bench which I couldn't resist when I saw it in Sylvia's Etsy store.

I love it!

It is such a pretty shade of green. I thought the living room would be mainly pink but with this beautiful bench it may have to be pink and green!

Yesterday I spent most of the day assembling this little birdcage from a laser cut kit. Such fine little pieces. It is hard to tell, but inside are two soft blue lovebirds. I have yet to make a little table or cabinet for the birdcage to sit on, so it is lucky there are no cats in the house!

The little car is one I found in a model shop a couple of weeks ago (one of those train model shops where they assume that if a woman walks in, she must be lost). It is perfect for the little boy's room, which is upstairs in the cottage.

Hi Carolyn,
I don't like pink very much, but with this green bench it's a wonderful combination. Green, in miniature land, is my favorite colour! And that bird cage..... it's so cute! And yes, if all goes well you will see me in October. I just have to be there for the convention. LOL

Hi Carolyn,
The bench look wonderful and I love your bird cage!

Sylvia's bench is just fabulous, I love her style. And I agree with Marion, that dusky green goes so well with 'shabby' pink (both have a touch of grey in them) so your thoughts of a pink colour theme may still work for you.

That birdcage is the cutest!! I'm totally in love with birdcages at the moment.

Crikey!! Carolyn, it's great to see you blogging again!
Sylvia's bench is gorgeous and pink and green together is my favourite colour combo.
That birdcage is fabulous!
