My (old) Family Room

I meant to post this before I moved, but with all the problems that Bloggers been having I didn't get to it.

We are all moved into our new house in Illinois now and are busy unpacking and cleaning etc.
These photos are of the family room in our old home in Las Vegas.
When we moved to LV,  I was very into the Old World style.
My new family room will look very different (no red), but
I thought it would be fun to show you these pictures.

I hope you don't mind if I don't chat, but just show you the pictures.

The BIG "Martin" chair (remember on Fraser).
I actually bought this big burgundy monster!
My hubby is 6'9" and I wanted him to have someplace comfy to sit.

I am on the hunt for a more attractive, but equally comfortable replacement.
~wish me luck ~

    (What kind of Blogger issues did you have? I am unable to publish a post...and I don't know why? It is so frustrating....and I just keep hearing people say Blogger is having issues! It may be my computer??? I don't know. I am able to read posts and comment...and I can write a post...but I can't publish it??)
