framed silhouettes in a corner of the house with a few of my favorite things

Here's a little corner of my living room. 

I've just updated this small wall near my wall of windows with some silhouettes.  Fall seems to be the time of year when we see silhouettes pop up everywhere. 

I try and redo my children's silhouettes every year--take out the old ones and pop them into their scrapbooks.  This year a new family member is making her debut appearance into the family, our new cat, Lucy.

These frames are ones I already had.  I just spray painted the girls' frames whites, and the boys' black.  Since I did Lucy's frame, we have since learned she is really a he, but I'm not going to bother re-painting the frame.  We also aren't changing his name. He is a boy cat with a girl's name.  But that's a whole 'nother story.

I updated my farmhouse dresser with some new accessories.


I love this black chicken coop wire cloche found while thrifting. It houses some mini white pumpkins sitting on a white cake stand.

I also love my skeleton lamp.  I prefer this type of shade better.  It allows more light to shine, and is better for reading.  I have actually transformed all the lamps in my house this way, by ripping off all the fabric on the lamp shades.  My husband's not sure what's happening to all the lamps! 

Just a peek at a corner of the house that I am constantly primping.
