Apartment Decorating

I've been shopping. Oh, how I've been shopping.
My house warming is coming up at the end of the month, so I've been getting some of the smaller things a home needs to make it just right.

An Etsy purchase. 
Here it is on the wall in my kitchen.

I've also been putting some of my vintage items in my cabinets. 
I need to adjust some things, but I like the look.

By the way, this is the light fixture in my kitchen.

I go this late 60s starburst clock too. I wanted something in the hall. I'm planning on changing the clock gears. It's a fairly new one in there now, and it's pretty loud.

The following items are on their way to me.
I hope to get most of them by the end of the week.

These tumblers are gonna look great in my kitchen cabinet!
Got a vintage fan (that works) so
I can cool off without the AC.

And here is the other big purchase. I found another Royalchrome couch and it's on it's way to me! I got this second love seat for about the price I paid for my other couch. I'm excited about it. Now it will be like I have a late 40s sectional in my living room! I'm going to order new cushions and cover them myself. Yay, fabric selection!!!

This is going to be so much fun! I can't wait to pick out fabric for my couches. 
Don't you just love homemaking!?

Love those couches. Yes , I love homemaking, I have renovating my ensuite - it's only semi vintage as we are hoping to sell soon. Mind you it's hard work, and my back is still complaining!

Your new apartment is just so great! And so . . YOU! Love all the new stuff. And the new couch--how cool is that? Virtually toasting you and your new home--may you have a long and joyful sojourn there.

Great decor! I really like the button shadow box you have. I want to make something like that for my half of the hobby room.

Ooh, I'm so happy to see you found a mate for your sofa! Having just moved very recently I'm enjoying 'homemaking' right now, too.

Hi Shelly, just wondering where you bought your kitchen light. I love it! If it is available can you tell me the dimensions?

The kitchen light is an original fixture. Its most likely from the 30s.
