Three or More Tuesday-Living Room triplets
This week I decided that I would again participate in Three or More Tuesday hosted by Tam at The Gypsy's Corner. If you have not visited her blog, you must rush on over (after looking at my post first, of course). I love Tam's blog, she takes the most beautiful photos & she has a special talent for setting up vignettes. And while you are visiting Tam's blog, be sure to visit all the other wonderful participants. And maybe next week, you will join in on the fun.
One day I was in my living room (I'm actually in there more than one day, but I'm referring to just one particular day) & noticed all the items that I have displayed in triplet. So the light bulb went on (click) & I thought I would share them with you today.
I've had these 3 fleur de lis finials for quite a number of years. I love the rusty finish they have. I don't even remember when I got them. They sit on a sofa table by my front window.
These blocks were made by my sister in law Jeannette (or maybe it was my nieces). They were my Christmas gift from them last Christmas. I love these! They sit on my sofa table by the front window as well.
I love using old books to add height to a display. Another sofa table display.
Here is a close up of the books used in this display. They all came from the thrift store. I paid 35 cents a piece (it was 1/2 off books day). The books were purchased for their color mostly. But I also liked the titles.
On the buffet in my living room is our (I mean hubby's) Lenox bowl collection. I did a separate Three or More Tuesday post about them. If you are interested, you can read it here.
Three boring candles. I love this candle holder as it reminds me of an old garden gate (that's the real reason for the photo).
Three hat boxes that I use for storage. These came from TJ Maxx last year. I store DVD's & music CD's in them. Did you notice our teal blue carpet? I hate it!!!!! Our entire house is carpeted in this color. It is hard to decorate with this color. I don't mind it in my living room as I have a lot of brown in there, but I hate it in the rest of my house. Some day it will be gone!!!! Not sure which will be gone first, the carpet, or me.
And finally 3 metal suitcases. These sit on the bottom of my sofa table by the front window. I purchased them on clearance from Tender Heart Treasures website a few years ago. They hold some of my ebay supplies. The smallest one holds my vintage image CD's. The middle one stores my packing tape guns & tape. The largest one stores my photo paper, card stock & vintage images that I have printed out.
As you can see, triplets run in my family. You definitely don't want to drink the water if you come to my house. lol.
Thanks for visiting & be sure to take a moment to say "Hi!" And come back now, you hear?
