more lilacs! I just cannot get enough of them when theyre in season! The prevent the mason jars from leaking water, or scratching the wood of the old radio, I placed them on vintage hankies (which came in my junk swap!) 
The old Singer sewing machine was found abadoned at the auction. The little tintype photo of a baby was also found at the auction- face down in a mud puddle! I love the way it looks on display, and I always wonder who the baby is, who they grew up to be.
The old radio was my aunts and she gave it to me. I have plugged it in a couple times, and it hums but it doesnt pick up any stations. Id love to get it refurbished someday.
This is a corner in my living room.
The old ladder was found at the auction abandoned. The blankets that are displayed on it were crocheted by my great-grandmother, the small one at the top is my baby blanket. :)
The old school desk was also found at the auction for free. The sock monkeys were included in a large lot of toys that I bought last year.
The couches were free from my aunt when I moved to MD. The blue shelves were bought unfinished from craft stores and then painted.
The French poster was found at the dollar store, and then popped into a black frame I already had.
And the coffee table (I think you can see just part of it) was found at Salvation Army. It was plain wood, and I painted it red.
These are the shelves on my wall where I display family photos.
I found this piece at the auction on the ground. I think it was part of a halltree. I hung it above the archway from my living room to the hall.

As with my kitchen, I have manged to furnish and decorate my living room with lots of bargain finds and free stuff. Just thought I'd share some pictures of my favorite room in my house.

I love the wooden piece above the door too, especially since I found it here in MD, and it shows Black Eyed Susans, which are the state flower. Wherever I am in the future, it will remind me of Maryland. Sorry to tell you that the sock monkeys are coming with me when I move- I could never give them up! ;) Posted: 5:22 pm on April 14th

You will not believe this BUT we have the same radio. Yikers!
I love that piece above the door! I have a buyer for the sock monkeys if you wish to sell. I will contact you after I get home from nyc.
