before sundown


i don't know how today has gotten away from me, but it has. so, tomorrow before sundown i promise to post the give away and announce the winner.

this photo was actually NOT taken at sundown, but on a beautiful sunday morning a few weeks ago. this room continues to bring solace and the comfort you can only find at home. i am usually sitting on the bench under the window (behind where i am standing to take the photo), with b-mo next to me and a nice cup of coffee....letting the sun warm our spirits.

please note the simple and affordable ikea chairs adorning all the other geriatric objects and finds in the room.

I LOVE that combination of old and modern. In fact, this is just what I've been looking for! Ikea, you say? Your blog is lovely, by the way. Have a great day!

we just got a couple of those same chairs. I think I have an exact match (or looks like it, at least) to one of the rugs under your table. Are there two (or more) combined there? Great look...

I want to be getting my "geriatric" groove on in that room!!! Are you kidding me? It's gorg!

And, on a sunny Sunday morning... my favorite time every single week. Lovely departure on a grey NW Friday. :)

There's that glorious built-in I've only seen glimpses of...it's wonderful, as is the room...everything is perfect!
I love the high railing on the wall too and the table, and the floors and...I might as well just keep it at everything (but I want to go on and on)!

Any girl who teams IKEA with oldies is a star in my book!
Also. Loving the rug.

Lovely room with so much warmth and good energy. A happy home I can tell.
