Through our Fresh New Spaces Group today I found flickr member Liz and Mabel’s steal of a mid-century sleeper sofa, found on craigslist for $65:


By the way, love the outfit, the pooch, and that aqua mini-gourd lamp too!

I absolutely love this lady’s smashing style! After perusing the Liz and Mabel flickr sets I found Mabel’s House blog, and I am absolutely smitten with her trips, photography, entertaining and fresh writing. Also, this woman has got a real eye for transforming forgotten furniture pieces with colorful paint. For example, I love this big blue mirror project:

I love the pops of turquoise all over this home. Here’s one more, check out the rest here:

    Cindy, I can’t believe I am just now discovering it – I love flickr for that. I love her voice and her writing style. I tend not to actually read a lot of blogs, I scroll through the pics when I’m in a hurry, but with her I want to read every word!
