Monday Montage

For this weeks Monday Montage I am featuring our living room
Spotlighting our Pumpkin Pine pieces.

Our pumpkin pine cupboard showcasing my recent find
An 1800 children's glider horse.
The horse was missing the saddle, so I draped an antique coverlet over.

Slanted pumpkin pine desk.

In front of our couch is our newest pumpkin pine piece.
This is a blanket chest.
It's a little too high for a coffee table.
I am in the process of cleaning out another smaller chest
that I have behind the couch that is too heavy to move
 (too many of my favorite prim magazines are in it) LOL
Once that is cleaned out, I will place the blanket chest behind the couch
and move the smaller chest in front.
Ace decided to pose for me in his favorite chair.

I thought I could get a better picture of him,
 but he decided to start cleaning himself as I snapped the pic.

Although this piece is not Pumpkin Pine
it is one of our favorites.
This is an 1896 piece that came out of a post office in Aurora Illinois.
A late 1800's stagecoach chest sits on top.

Another angle of the post office cabinet.
I love all of the cubbies!
Hanging on the door is an early 1900's mail bag.
I hide my Christmas fabric in the bottom part!

Thanks for visiting part of our home.
Believe it or not,
I am dragging things out for Christmas now.
Plus creating new items.
In two weeks Bob and I will be re-decorating our store
for Christmas, so I have to get moving....

Autumn Blessings Everyone
