    Thank you Alan!

    Anyway, my living room has been an ongoing work in progress for the past 15 years - last night I finally got rid of the icky, grungy, dusty 15 year old broken el-cheapo plastic mini-blinds and hung a fabric shower curtain I got for $9.99 at Meijers in the front window. Too cheap to purchase the fancy metal rings to hang it with, I instead used some natural twine to tie it up onto the existing curtain rod. You should have seen it this morning when I woke up and the sunrise bathed the room in a nice warm peachy glow! I love my townhouse!

    Nice! I love the colors and the way the accessories and art tie it all together.

    That lounge chair in the corner looks like a really comfy place to read! Or nap!

    Home-sweet-home! Beautiful! Love the standup lamp and wall clock! And, Peggy, the corner lounge is already spoken for! It's all mine! LOL!

    Love the checkered Kleenex box! Hand-knitted?

    SiouxQ: it's lovely, truly lovely. Warm and homey.

    (and I'm a little disgusted: I have a very similar shower curtain in my bathroom, yours is just as pretty as curtains as mine is in the bathroom, and I spent 4 times as much for the darn shower. I couldn't wait, I just had to get the bathroom done, I had to buy something and get it done.....when will I learn patience?)

    I love the copper/burnt orange/redishes/browns-tones you've done. Just like in my bathroom.

    This is the second pic that has been posted of someone's living room lately, (was Black Dog the other one? - my mind is blank on that right now), anyhow I just wanted to say that I think this is a great idea! It gives us peeks into "real people's" homes, not magazines or HGTV homes. I am enjoying this and I think especially so because I am, for some reason, experiencing a desire to "do SOMETHING" to my house. Being frugal means I don't go out and hire a decorator or shop for all new stuff - just a few good inspiring ideas and some paint maybe. Thanks for posting and maybe we can start a thread for this.
