Our New Digs

Our new home is feeling like just that... home.  The livingroom is one of my favorite spots in the house.  In the afternoon it is drenched in sunlight, softly filtered by my gorgeous floor-to-ceiling linen-colored curtians.  (Ikea, baby! $14.99 a pair).  I stocked up on those curtains before we moved from Pittsburgh! 

All of my antique ironstone is nestled in a low cupboard beside the front livingroom window.  My favorite collections are ones that are super affordable - I've never paid more than $10 for any piece of ironstone, and most were $5 or under.  My favorite chippy pitcher, heavily stained and perfectly imperfect, was 50 cents at a flea market in Hartville, Ohio. 

I'll leave you with the livingroom for today...  More rooms to come later!

  5. Hi Ellie!

    I am new to your blog (LOVE it by the way....I have the same taste in home decor, so you are great inspiration!!!

    I have a question, where did you purchase/find your living room rug? I'm on a hunt for a rug that is made from natural materials, but the typical PotteryBarn/Crate&Barrel rugs are all rough and uncomfortable! Your rug looks super cozy ;-)

    Thanks again for sharing your beautiful home with us!
