Spring Livingroom Facelift

I have a bazillion bigger projects on the list of things to get done in the house, so when I have a day to catch up sometimes I like to tackle a small project.  Our living room has been lacking.  We’ll be getting drapes for the big window to make watching TV a little easier.  Adding quarter-round, re-painting and fixing up the door and stairs are all on the list.

Wanting to add a little interest to the entry area I decided my growing collection of little antique frames was just the ticket.  I think really highlight the height if the ceiling and frame the cute door.  It’s hard to believe this area looked like this just over a year ago.

The pictures are all little pieces of us.  A couple of pictures of my great-grandparents, a polaroid from our wedding, 2 film photos from high school (one of each of us) taken around the same time and a newspaper advertisement for a coach service that passed through Hudson (where we are) from the turn of the century.  I’m hoping to add to the collection a little as I find more frames.

Also, how pretty are these ‘Lucky Strike’ tulips from our front yard?  I think they are so cheery.  I switched out the grouping on the filing cabinet to be more spring-y and couldn’t help snipping a couple of blooms that were getting heavy.
