It has rained here again, great for the plants and flowers but sure does change my plans for the day. So thought it would be a great time to add to my blog. I received the nicest gift this morning! Carol, a friend from the OFG Gathering group, sent me the cutest little siggy with my name! Isn't it adorable? I love cottage style decorating, so this little jewel was so me. Thank you Carol!

So this brought to mind a great topic for discussion.......what are your favorite things to decorate with? If I had to describe my home, I would have to use the word cottage country style. I have a mixture of primitive, antique, colonial and cottage. Sounds like quite the mixture doesn't it, but it all seems to work. I believe that your home should reflect who you are, and if you love it, it works. I tend toward the the simplistic way of life. I love the hardwood floors, old cabinets to hold my treasures, and lots and lots of light. I am forever moving pieces and collections around just to get a different look. Most of the things in my home are treasures,that have come from the hearts of family and friends. Everywhere I look is a memory of how blessed I am to have had such wonderful people grace my life. So how about you? What are your favorite decorating styles? I would love to hear all about it. Along with painting, and gardening, I am always looking for new and different things to add to my home, so I would love to hear about yours!

  1. I don't know if I really have a style, but if I had to label mine, I guess I would have to say it's eclectic! I love painted items, although I would love to have antiques with their original finish too. It really is a toss up in my head..I love them both....and if I had antiques, they would be right in there with my painted pieces too. I'm slowly adding painted accessories that make me happy.


Thanks so much for visiting my blog. Your comments mean so much!
