The first room I am going to show you is her living room /sitting room. This is the first room to the right when you come in her front door. She has many great antiques mixed with flea market finds and some new pieces from home decor and consignment stores. This chest is very old and I love the open shelving piece she hung above it that she found at a flea market last year. I really wish I had seen that piece first I probably would have had to fight her for it! It is a beauty. She has placed white ironstone dishes, transferware, and silver pieces on it. I love how she has flanked it with two bird plaques.
This is an old chair that she has thrown a cranberry slipcover on and then layered it with a beautiful throw and a gorgeous aubusson pillow featuring pheasants. If she finds it missing I hope she doesn't look here.
My other favorite piece is this very old secretary. I love the patina of this piece and the wonderful lead glass panels. They just don't make them like this anymore.
There has to be a pretty tassel hanging on the door. It is a Southern thang ya know!
She has created a very nice vignette on the secretary desk top with the Staffordshire cow figurine, lamp and decorative key.
Love the lamp with the stenciled lamp shade and look at the size of that key.
The leather is worn and cracked which gives it such great character.
A close up of a recent silver piece she found. I love the way it looks behind the lead glass door.
They just had these hand scraped wood floors installed a few months ago. I love the wide planks.
Here is the view of that room from her family room. Another great piece in that room is the old column. She just placed a wire urn filled with a plant on top of that. Such a great way to fill an empty corner. I will share more of her house soon. I will have to break this up in segments so it doesn't get too long. I hope you enjoyed this room in her house. I love going there and visiting because it has always changed by the time I come back to visit. Please be sure to check back for the continued tour.

I appreciate all the comments left for Bailey's post. She had a wonderful time and I did, too getting a break for the weekend. It is always good to come back home though. Please let me know you dropped by.
Y'all come back now,
