Favorites in My Living Room

I have spent so much time at home these past few months that I
have spent more time fluffing the cottage and enjoying it's various
nooks and crannies.  I love my living room because of it's bright
and cheerful yellow walls, and for the sunlight filled mornings
because of its eastern exposure.  It's a good place to sit and read

I really have a passion for vintage books.  I love their decorative
spines and covers.  Whenever I come across one in an antique or
thrift shop I just can't pass it up.  I have never appreciated 
displaying books with their spines facing the back of a bookcase.
I suppose I dislike that trend because I love to see what others 
are reading.  

Here is a collection of dog photos of beloved companions who
are no longer with me.  I love seeing their little faces, and each one
has special memories for me.

The toile on this chair is just perfection.  I have two of them in this
fabric, the style of each chair is slightly different.  This one has
fully upholstered arms.

This one does not.

A desk filled with sentimental treasures.

And a lamp full of whimsey.

Staying at home during this pandemic is not always fun, but I take
comfort in appreciating the things I have in nooks and crannies that
make me smile and say "this is home".

It's Friday afternoon.  Let's make it a good weekend filled with
memorable moments.

    Am so happy to testify about a great spell caster that helped me when all hope was lost for me to unite with my ex-girlfriend that I love so much. I had a girlfriend that love me so much but something terrible happen to our relationship one afternoon when her friend that was always trying to get to me was trying to force me to make love to her just because she was been jealous of her friend that i was dating and on the scene my girlfriend just walk in and she thought we had something special doing together, i tried to explain things to her that her friend always do this whenever she is not with me and i always refuse her but i never told her because i did not want the both of them to be enemies to each other but she never believed me. She broke up with me and I tried times without numbers to make her believe me but she never believed me until one day i heard about the DR. EMU and I emailed him and he replied to me so kindly and helped me get back my lovely relationship that was already gone for two months.
