Keeping Room




The room that keeps-

comfy leather furniture for Doc and I to have heart to hearts and
a cozy space for curling up next to the fireplace. 

Was hoping for fresh forsythia on the mantel but my blooms are already gone! Can't wait until the hydrangeas bloom!

A sweet friend gave me this big fluffy down pillow and it's perfect to rest the head or arm on this much occupied love seat.





We do a lot of bird watching from those windows which overlook the backyard. I think we've seen one of each bird pictured in these vintage prints.



I prefer windows to not be blocked but it beats lugging this credenza up the stairs. It'll rest here until the house sells. Thanks for all your well wishes on that!

We will miss this little keeper.

My boys are on spring break so we are headed to the beach. See ya in a few days!

Love that cozy room. Perfect for reading! Wishing you a speedy sale! Having been through it ourselves, recently, I know it's not fun....but house hunting in your new city will be!

I love the mantle. We are away on vacation and I have seen so many great mantles on blogs that I can't wait to get home and redo mine. I might steal your idea of a big initial.

I love having a cozy spot to sit and watch the birds. How fun the doc likes to do that with you. My husband says the birds here eat better then he does ;) Love your room!

Gorgeous room Tammy! I love leather, there's something masculine yet romantic about it! I have that same pillow a bit different tones, and I love it too.
Great friend to gift it to you! Thank you for your kind comment on my table, you're so sweet!

I would most definitely love to sit there and chat! Steve and I have a very similar room that we call our sunroom although living in Oregon, it isn't that sunny most of the time. We go there for our morning coffee chats or for our heart to hearts and it even has a bay window also. I love the way your have your room decorated. Makes me want to work on mine. Happy Easter to you and your family.

Sarah said...

Enjoy the beach time. Nothing like a little sand between your toes!
Happy Easter, too! ~ Sarah

Cindy said...

Your keeping room is beautiful and so cozy looking. The big pillow is lovely and looks like a wonderful place to take a nap, after looking for birds, of course.
Have fun at the beach and Happy Resurrection Day to you and your family. God is SO GOOD!
Hugs, Cindy
