Just Hanging Around in the Living Room. . .

Hello friends! Woke up to 40 something degree temps in the mountains here in Virginia this morning. That can only mean one thing ~ fall is quickly approaching! It's my favorite time of the year. As long as I don't dwell on what comes next, which would be snow and cold, cold temps. Oh well, we won't think about that today! Instead, why don't we focus on walls today. I thought it'd be fun to share some of the wall vignettes around our living room. Come join me for a tour!
I love changing out my wall vignettes and I get lots of inspiration from some great blogs! Here's what you see when you walk in the door to our simple little (and I do mean little!) cottage:
This is hanging above my couch which is currently flanking the far wall which faces the door in the living room. A simple print depicting a covered bridge and horse drawn buggy flanked by simple candle sconces and a vinyl "Welcome" greeting. Our living room colors are currently burgundy and tan. But, I am excited to announce that we have FINALLY agreed on a new sofa and recliner set in a sage green color so I will be incorporating some of that color in my future wall vignettes, I'm sure. I will post pictures of that at a later date.
This next vignette is what is hanging over my television and is the wall to your right as you enter our home. A floral print flanked by small iron candle sconces with burgundy candles and some wall iron art above.
And this is what is hanging over our fireplace, which is the wall opposite of the television:
I found the large mirror at Lowes of all places, and the prints flanking the mirror were gifted to me by a family member. Another iron art piece above the mirror and I found the "B" at Hobby Lobby a while back and adhered it with a command hook. I tied a bow out of some burlap and burgundy ribbon for enhancement.
And finally, this is what I have hanging to the left of the front door, and is what you would see when you are leaving our home. My wonderful "Amazing Grace" sign I bought on line several years ago, a small mirror, and a shelf with hooks for our keys. I am a huge lover of the Willow Tree figurines so I plopped one down on this small shelf.
Thank you for joining me on this small tour of my living room wall vignettes. I'm joining Marty over at A Stroll Thru Life for her Table Top Tuesday Party. Click here to pop over and see lots of inspiration!
Until next time. . .


  1. All of your wall vignettes look very nice, Donna. Your "Welcome" vinyl looks like the same font as my "Pantry" one. I just adore "Welcome" signs.


  2. Very nice vignettes Donna. I am still trying to figure out mine for over my sofa so this was great to see. I also love Willow tree and think your vignette for that is so perfect. Great job!

  3. I've always liked the vinyl letters in a home! Love how yours looks there! Love your letter B hanging there too!

    My mom also collects willow tree angels....she has a huge shelf of them! I think they're so sweet!

    Thanks for sharing, Donna!

    Have a great day!

  4. Everything looks great! I love the "Amazing Grace" sign!

  5. All of your walls are looking beautiful! I love the monogram hanging on the mirror.

  6. Hi Donna,

    Your wall vignettes are so pretty! I love Willow Tree figurines, too; I have several in our home.

    How wonderful that you live in the Virginia mountains. My husband and I love to ride in Virginia in the fall, along the Blue Ridge Parkway. Such pretty countryside!

    Thanks so much for following along on my blog; I'm your newest follower. :)

    Have a wonderful day!


  7. Hello, Country Girl..thanks so much for coming by and following.
    I am following you right back ...maybe we can meet in the middle and you can teach me how to make MY walls as pretty as yours. :)
