Vintage Style Front Room in my 1958 Ranch

I'm slowly decorating my front room since I decided to go girly with it.  Here are some pictures.  My custom made drapes (sewn by my friend)  are going to be delivered today, so there will have to be an update in the future.

I always work on a budget usually figuring out how I can spend the least amount possible. Some things I found at the thrifts...some things like the Pyrex Starburst and Hip Haven planter were special occasion purchases and the Haegar lamp I got in a trade.  My friend made me pillows from vintage fabric and I made the slip cover from vintage heavy polyester.  Sofa table is actually reconfigured from one unit into two pieces of the same height.  Vintage runner, ceramic figurine and planter are more little thrift store pieces.

The sun came over to this side of the house and lit up my room.  Yes, I already have a tree up and it is only December 1st.  I found this tree and light wheel at a local antique store.  I rarely go to them so I got lucky on this day as they were on sale. Vintage thifty finds and a late 18th century table I brought back from Germany many years ago are all things I've fallen in love with.

Close up of goodies under my tree.  Thrifted items like the German hand embroidered Christmas table cloth, angels and star ornament are typical of the little treasures I love to find.  The bunny ballerina was a stocking stuffer from my husband many years ago. I still have work to do in this room.  I can't wait to hang my new retro drapes!
