With all the extra time I've been spending at home due to COVID, I tend to start re-arranging my home. Moving pictures, rearranging furniture, and re-painting a room or two. Recently, I got the urge to re-do our office space. Since I have so many odds and ends that were my mother's or my grandparents, I've been wanting to find a space to display them all and since we don't use our office very much, I figured it would be the perfect place to go nuts and fill up every nook and cranny.   

My favorite wall turned out to be what I call, "the clock wall." For some reason, my grandfather had an overabundance amount of clocks. The cuckoo clock hung in my grandparents' dining room for years until it stopped working, but as a little girl, every hour, I loved seeing the little bird pop out.


Someday I would like to get a new couch, I have my heart set on a velvet couch but because of my daughter's cat, I'm scared she would ruin it since she seems to have ruined every other piece of velvet furniture I have. It's so frustrating!

Because of our mischievous cat, Lola, when I found this cute little velvet chair in an antique store, in order to keep Lola from jumping up into the seat,  I decided to place this antique airplane that I've had for forever, to keep her off. 

A few items that I always keep my eyes out for while thrifting or antique shopping, are old, hardback books or unique odds and ends like this statue of Charlie Chaplain. I can't explain why I like him so much, I just do. He looks so sophisticated and handsome, don't you think?

One of my favorite items in this room is my grandfather's high school varsity letter. I'm not really sure what sport he received the letter in, unfortunately, and I wish he was still around so I could ask him. 

One of my grandmother's dining chairs that I decided to paint. Now if only I could find it's mate. 

And last but not least, my view from our office window. The American Flag that we have displayed proudly ever since our oldest son left for the Air Force. It's a daily reminder of how proud of him I am. 

Thank you for visiting my little corner of the internet, where I share the little things in my crazy life that make me smile.
