Aunt Weezie's, Part One

Here's the scoop on the apartment...my parents have been gracious enough to turn over their basement while Anna Louise is saving for a house.  She moved in right after she came back from grad school and proceeded to remove every last bit of furniture that was down there [I'll have to take some pictures of the basement storage space, which is insane!].  

One cool thing is that Weezie has used mostly furniture that was our grandparents or that she has gotten at outlet malls and antique dealers for outstanding deals.  The sofa, for example, is a sleeper sofa she bought for around $300 at the Storehouse outlet [the feet needed some work, which my dad fixed in about an hour].  She eventually found some fabric she liked and had it recovered.  She's a resourceful gal, and not afraid of a little negotiating to get the price she wants!

[One big thing she wants to change would be to get an antique linen press 
for a TV armoire.]

I love the way these books look here...
[probably partly because books would never stay that neat at my house!]

[Who are those cute boys all over that bulletin board?!]

Her favorite things in the room...

A piece of English porcelain she bought on Portobello Road in London

Delft man from Holland

And her biggest splurge...Brunschwig & Fils animal print fabric
