Price My Space

Over at Nesting Place yesterday, everyone was encouraged to tell the REAL price of a room. Well, I'm a day late. But, better late than never! And the reason I'm late is because it literally took me 8 hours for this post! The pictures took forever to load. Seriously. FOREVER. And I still can't figure out how to make pictures bigger or how to move them around after they have been uploaded. Oh well. Here is our living room! (Still without Drapes.)
Restoration hardware Couch: $4,500, Pottery Barn Coffee Table: $400, Pottery Barn Rug: $580 I got the rug at a discount thanks to a moving coupon we got from the post office. I think it just took care of the shipping.

It all looks brilliant and well worth the money........it's really funny, but I often like the cheaper things best like the vintage box, the wicker basket , the glass jars and even the wish tickets... I know that we have to have the setees etc. but it's the little things that make a home . XXXX

that leather sofa is so comfortable! It was my dream leather sofa, but it is too big for our space. I also love your vintage french house number, I want one (and I have found one) but it doesn't look as big as yours. Great space!

What a beautiful room, you've got some really unique touches. Have you tried using Windows Live Writer for your blog posts? I started using it a couple months ago and it makes blogging SO much easier, especially when dealing with alot of photos.
