Some More Decorating...

 As I've mentioned before, we're slowly redecorating our family room. We got new couches which oriented the room a bit differently, so I've been working on this wall where the old couch used to go.
 Here's a shot from the kitchen area looking in.  You can see a bit of the sofa table I showed here.  I'm still looking for the perfect large chair or chaise to go in the spot where that basket is sitting.
 My globe collection has grown...
 It's so nice to be able to look at some of my favorite things every day...
 The three vintage puzzles represent Avery (kitty), Noah (puppy), and Riley (cowboy).
 And the vintage books represent the three kids as well!
 The cabinet originally had glass doors on all the sections, but I removed the ones on the two sides so I'd have more display space!  The baskets behind the glass doors hold our DVD's.
 Oh, how I love this little phone!  I splurged and bought it for myself a couple birthdays ago.
 I always love plants scattered around...
 Some of our books, organized by reading level for the boys.
 Such pretty, pretty colors!
 My little tin dollhouse has plastic furniture inside, so that the kids can play when they want.
 Just some of the many pieces of doll furniture in here!
Guess where more vintage doll furniture ended up?  On my mantle!  You saw it with the vintage books here.  I didn't figure it would stay like that for long, but I like this arrangement quite a bit, so maybe this one will stay a little longer!
I added the burlap ribbon and the trees to jazz it up a bit.
 Just like on the other wall, I've represented the three kids with these three little dressers and the books on top.
Riley is the little boy on the largest dresser,...
...Noah is in the middle, and Avery is Little Bo Peep on the smallest dresser!
I know I've only showed you bits and pieces of the room.  That's because the rest is still in flux, awaiting more furniture and more DIY efforts by my husband.  But I'm having fun with what I can, as you can see!  And, if you know me, you know that a lot of this is likely to change within a few months anyway!!
