Living Room No. 2

Okay, here's the whole picture! Our living room area is the AWKWARDEST space ever. Long and skinny...with three tiny hexagonal-ish walls to the left of the fireplace, and then a big long wall to the right with a window smack in the middle of it. The couches have been a few different ways, and this arrangements seems to make the most sense for us in this non-sensical room of ours.
These are the second pair of curtains hung here. Plain Jane from Ikea. I sewed and sold the first set in a matter of months and settled on these until I found a set I just HAD to have. There's a few sets at Urban I'm trying to decide how much I love right now! A third set has all ready sold out...I hope they restock, because it's the one I love the most! I apologize to anyone who wasn't addicted to Urban Outfitters probably will be by the time you're done clicking my links! :) Oh, and the blanket over the couch...yup, UO. On sale for $50. You can't SEW them for $50!!! Yellow/white striped cushion is Superstore, green neck pillow is Ikea. I usually have more pillows in there...but Van puked on them, and they were in the wash at the time of this picture! :)
I got the idea to squish nine frames together from Ali Edward's daughter's room,  except I wanted to use square frames so the whole thing would be a big square. I didn't rush at all and bought the first square frames I happened across which were in Superstore. There's for sure cuter square frames out there, but regardless, this is one of my favourite things in my house!! And I know, I have yet to get a picture of Baker in there...I printed one, and then accidentally scrapbooked it. Ha ha.. 
The little red stool/chair is from an antique store in Great Falls. I hardly name names since I hardly remember names! And it's not like I have one store (besides Station 8) that holds all the antique goodies I've ever gotten, I find gems everywhere...and a lot of crap too! Antiquing is so hit or thrifting.
The picture of Christ is a Simon Dewey print. I love it. Not so much the frame...will prob change that along the way somewhere. Pillow below is UO. Yellow chair was from the old Raymond Elementary School. (My mother-in-law is a librarian there and had them at her house and wanted to get rid of them...I was giddy about it. ) The reading lamp is from Home Sense. And it's crooked, and it makes me mad. 
Lamp and end table below are Ikea. Knob is Anthro. Was on sale for $2.95. Basket from Michael's...I've hired it to hold all of our puzzles. 
I HATED my mantle for the first three years we lived here. Finally by then though I had accumulated enough things that I liked when put together. I know it's weird now, but I love it...finally!
