Vintage Ironing Board Vignette

Most of you know that I love thrift store shopping. My entire home is decorated with thrifted items. I am not ashamed.
I picked up this red bottle last week. Perfect for summer decor.

Recently, I found this wooden ironing board.
 Oh Happy Day!
I also picked up this metal basket for a dime. Yep, a dime. 
The chicken crate belongs to my husband. And you know 
what that means....What's his is mine.

The ironing board just does fit along this wall. I think that
 it helps to ground the shelves. 

I struggle with vignettes. Just the word itself intimidates.
Before blogging, I had never even heard of that word.
 Seriously, I had to look it up when I first saw it...
Just between us, it's a little too fancy for my taste.

This is how I do it: I gather things together that have meaning 
and speak to me. I've decided that vignettes don't have 
to make sense to other people. As long as they make sense to me. 
Whew! I'm so glad I figured that out.

 This is the view from the kitchen.  

This is the view from my chair where I'm blogging right now.
My living room is pretty big. This is one corner. 
See that green stool. It's so cool. I picked it up for less than $5.00. 
I wish I knew where it came from, who had it, and kept it in such great condition. 
I think it might be from the 70's.

I have white slipcovers for my couch and love seat but they need to be ironed.... I keep putting it off. Although, I am looking forward to a lighter look for summer. 
I want to add more red accents, maybe change up the pillows. I can't decide if I should paint the front door. So many decisions... 

This afternoon I'm going to pick out my wood floor for this room.
(So excited except for the fact we are going to install it ourselves... ) 

Thank you so much for stopping
