Adding Colour in the Living Room

I'm enjoying adding little bits of colour to our living room.

 I added old croquet balls and pegs to the chicken wire basket on top of the hutch for colour and interest.

The cost of the complete vintage croquet set was $2 at a neighbours yard sale. Our youngest son is my garage sale companion and is great at finding things I would love, this set was under a table and he spotted it right away. This might be something I change out seasonally, but this look should work for spring and summer. 

I'm linking up to Beyond the Picket Fence ~100 Ideas party! I love finding new-to-me blogs and parties.

I'm also joining the Show off Your Stuff party at Fireflies and Jellybeans. There are three categories of fun happening here.


  1. Elizabeth this is a wonderful vignette! The wire basket filled with croquet pieces is a great punch of color.

  2. Funny, I was just playing around with adding some more bright summery colors to our living room this morning. It must be all this beautiful weather we've been having that's got us thinking about it!

  3. the croquet balls are very cute. my son has some old ones out in the pig pen for them to play with. do i dare try to clean them up and bring them in?

  4. Love the croquet "colors"! We found a complete, vintage, all wood, croquet set at a local salvage store for $10 this past winter... I'm still trying to decide exactly where to put it....


  5. Love the croquet set! My parents had a set when we were growning up and now I wish we still had it!
