These are the blue flowers growing on the bank under our Manitoba Maple. Does anyone know what they are?
Mr. Man is 7 weeks old! Arden loves to hold him on her knee.

They told me they were all sleeping and that's why they weren't coming when I called for supper! Doesn't look like sleep to me . . .
Still trying to decide what to do with the living room! I had finally picked out a paint colour to match our existing couch set. I wasn't a huge fan of the colours in the couch, but I had picked the Benjamin Moore historic colour Louisburg Green to go with it.
This was the living room set up:
|Walls too washed out with those couches. I like the wood floors, but sometimes you just need a rug for warmth and coziness... and to cushion the toys that sometimes get tossed about!|
I'd been looking for a rug for the floor, and recently picked a large (used) 6x9 one up for $20! It was a little too dark for the furniture I think, but a great deal. Here are a couple low quality bad light pictures of the rug and the colour sample of the green paint.

And then some friends gave us an old couch set. At first, I was planning to put it in another room or the basement, but when I put one of the pieces in the living room temporally, I noticed it went really well with the rug, and the mismatched wood in the room, and even the old rust coloured man chair! So I figured I'd give the set a try for a little while to see if I liked it. It's a completely different look.
|Couches across from each other instead of in an L-shape. Also, the man chair goes well at that end of the room.|
What do you think?
