I totally get that this is not necessarily a look of "today," but here's the thing: I have never been a slave to the latest style. I tried it a few times..changed my entire house to whatever was the latest style. I hated it. every. time. Oh yes I did.
Here's what I have a learned: I have acquired a style of my own over the years. BUT! I like to incorporate new vitality into that style, so I change yet somewhat, stay "true" to what I love.
For example, gone are the days of baskets and bears and clutter everywhere ~ I do like a sparer look, with tighter displays. But, an old scale and grouping of plates (and yes, the occasional basket!) are still part of my decorating go-tos. (I picked up this tiny little scale at the antique mall on Thursday....$11.00! Hemmed & hawed over this scale for a month - so glad I took the plunge and brought it home.)
But, it's all ok. There's room for everyone to do what they like in their homes...so much more interesting that way, don't you think? Plus, we all can learn from each other!
And now, I am happy to announce my first giveway to celebrate over 5,000 pageviews! Woo hoo! I remember thinking it was cool when I made it to 25...ha ha! I have no aspirations of being a powerhouse blog...just a little , humble heartfelt one...so I am honored that anyone has stopped by!
