This rug was in the dinning room. Now in living room
Being a fixer, I immediately switched sofas so the more comfortable one would be in our family/sunroom.
This sofa and rug and dog are now in the sunroom
This started a domino effect whereby I started switching all the rugs around and editing tables and any other things I could move out. I also went on a quest for a sofa to replace this one.

I have a completely different arrangement in my living room now where the built in book shelves are now the focal point so I had to declutter the shelves. I'm not very good at styling shelves, and I'm still moving things around.
I'm also going to cover all the books so that they are a little more muted. I tried the turn them backwards trick (so you're looking at the pages) but that wasn't working for us. I saw this technique of wrapping them in vellum on Summer is a verb. What do you think? Does it just look like I'm wrapping wax paper on them? Tell me now before I do them all.
I've been getting rid of clothes and furniture too. I donated one chair three tables 5 bags of clothes a mantle, and some books to Purple Heart. Then I picked up 5 new old chairs at an estate around the corner. I only paid $10 for all of them.
Two of them are for the patio so they shouldn't really count:) The other two are going in my new living room.
I've ordered this fabric and the upholsterer is coming this week to pick them up. Yes, you heard me right, I hired a professional to do these chairs.
And finally with the warmer weather I was able to work on the pond a little. I really liked the urn fountain I had last year, but it was just too much work to keep it flowing evenly and it splattered a lot of water, so I had to always add water to the pond.
As I was looking out at my garden I realized that the little statue I have tucked into some plants is actually a fountain. I hooked up the little cherub and it's working as a temporary option.
Although people think he's a little boy peeing when they first see him.
Hopefully I'll be back soon with photos of my new living room and chairs. Thanks for checking in with me today.
