This week's theme: Vintage

I had posted a colour version of this shot of my living room for the "Embracing Sunday Mornings" group when I realized that so many of the elements of the room are vintage. The Fenwick Landsdowne prints, the 1950s lamp that I bought for $5 at a church bazaar, the red ottoman that my parents bought in the 1950s (goes with a chair that's just out of the picture), the Hammersley bone china they bought in the 40s, the lamp table (part of a three-table set that belonged to a friend's aunt), the coffee table (a $10 thrift store find), the coasters, the flooring (reclaimed Douglas-fir from Stanley Park), the lines of the couch, and even the lilacs -- such old-timey flowers. So what better image to apply some vintage effects to for this week's theme!!
