plate of cookies warm from the oven, and some fresh brewed
Ice Tea. Please sit down and let me share with you some
treasures of my sentimental life.
A chippy sofa table welcomes family and friends to our
home. In It's early days it had an oak finish, it is where the
children would place a book or two-the legs had been drawn
on with markers...sweet memories.
Anthuriums love the light here, and as your can
see I have a variety of treasures. A mirror from the Red
Door, bookends that were once white - spray painted gold.
I am not quite sure where the little brass bell came from-but
the Grandchildren enjoy ringing it!
Each table in our Formal living room I have hand sanded and
painted with my own concoction of paint. I am seriously
considering repainting the coffee table, my concoction has it
almost looking like metal- I am thinking a bit much! You see the
painting behind the sofa, I love it- I chose this painting
because it reminds me of where I grew up.
The medallions I purchased on a trip to see my oldest
daughter when she lived in Louisiana. You see, my decorating
is centered around my sentimental journey through life.
As you can tell, I love my plants both outdoors and indoors.
Even during the Winter months they thrive.
We are so fortunate to have lovely filtered light-
Such a comfy chair to curl up in and either read or crochet. It
has held many a Mother and her child. And the decorative egg
on the end table a sweet Easter gift from a loving friend.
When I look at my knick-knacks, treasures, what-nots, they all
tell a story. Many of my treasures were given to me from loved
ones. Some I purchased on various outings with a family
member or friend, now they are reminders of the special time
that we shared on that particular day.
Home symbolizes safety, security, love, compassion,
warmth, understanding and a refuge from the world. It is
the one place you should always be welcome. A cozy bed,
a soft chair, a shoulder to lean on-this is our heart this is
Thank you for stopping by and sharing a little of
my sentimental journey.
