It's Beginning to Look like a Living Room!

As you can see there have been a few changes to the living room. :) The floor is done!

I've added some accessories too. I made the little beaded Christmas tree, the poinsettia and the wreath over the mantle. I'm really loving beads right now! So many ideas and possibilities!

The rug, fan, bear pillow and the little dolphin statue were Ebay finds.

I made the window blinds using Grazina's tutorial at the New England Miniatures Blog. Very tricky, but I think they were well worth the effort! I did something different at the top because I wanted them to be installed inside the window frame. I used a small piece of a 3/16" square wood dowel instead of the molding.

Please welcome my new pets! "Sienna," the golden retriever and "Sprite," the calico cat. Fiasco is no where to be found right now. Perhaps it's because of the cat?

Today's project will be a coffee table. Hope you have a wonderful weekend!

Blessings, Kathi

It's all coming together so nicely, Kathi. :)

The floor looks great, I love the blinds, I noticed that right away.

Adding the accessories, I think, is the most fun.

Do those pets resemble your own pets?

What a wonderful room!
Kathi, you are a very fast worker with a great love for details.

I also want to try the tutorial for the window blinds, but until now I didn't have time for it :-(

Hugs, Taenia

The room looks so cool! I have to go and check out how the blinds are made. It's so facinating.
