Decorraging- Adding a little red

Here is a small peak of what I've SLOWLY been working on in my office/living/play/greatroom. Yes, we have an all- in-one room. Something about two kids taking over our house and needing bedrooms. Anywho, these are my little red accents, thus far.

Birdcage, courtesy of Mom's garage, it was some awful forest green.
I bought this Waverly toile, totally overpriced (even with the coupon), but it was one of those wide ones so I have enough left over to make a pillow. If only I knew how to turn that sewing machine on...
This shelf is another swipe from Mom's house. I love it.

And that is about all of the red I've added. Now that Mr. Dunbar is home I'll have more time to spend on making things look pretty rather than just trying to keep kids fed, bathed, and entertained.
Have a happy day and if you haven't already, take the typing quiz below.
I want to send someone some shiny OPI nail polish for their fingers or toes.
