Karla over at Karla's Cottage is having a party and has invited us along...she is celebrating her article in the most recent issue of Romantic Country magazine. How exciting is that! I will have to get a copy of that mag. I love reading Karlas blogs and she is so super talented.
Let me preface my blog by saying that I didn't plan this through very well, and definately procrastinated and then not getting home until 9pm last night, so....having said that, I have taken strategically placed pictures of specific vignettes in my house, hopefully hiding some of the dust and CLUTTER! I should also mention that I like stuff and am a firm believer in "more is more".
First of all, I love everything about my home, but I have a real fondness for my beautiful bedroom. Pictured here is a dresser that was my grandmothers with some of my beautiful finds displayed...I have also attached a close-up picture. It just makes me happy to be in this room.
Okay, now on to the little vanity alcove in my bedroom....love it.
I also have a guestroom that is in the process of being created (no pictures yet...yikes!) and my studio space (which I wrote about in my previous blog). As we head down stairs, I just love what I did on the hall and it goes all the way down the stairs. I just painted squares in a lovely burgundy color and then the photos are arranged in and around the stairs... the squares look crooked, but I think (hope) it is the angle of the camera....c'est la vie!
I won't show you my whole living room, as that is a big culprit of the messy dust and clutter, but will show you a few sections that I just love....I kind of wish I had an armoire to hide the big television (and like Karla admitted to in her blog, I also am ADDICTED to television!), but I just love the old music stand it sits on now...and the two etageres have been with me forever. And again, the walls are all full.....did I mention "more is more"?
Last but not least I just love the art of Henriette Ronner-Knip (dutch painter, 1821-1909) and have several pieces that I adore!
I am so in love with my kitchen, too, but it looks like a disaster hit at the moment, so will save that special room for another blog.
Thanks for sharing just a few snippets of my home that I love so much! It is filled with lots of stuff, but more importantly it is filled with lots of love.
