Even as a young girl I would pick the red roses from my Mother's carefully tended rose garden
to add a spark of color to my lavender toned bedroom.
I will say this, I am not a decorator, I don't think I follow many, most likely any of the rules or
techniques, I just plain enjoy it and delight in using the things in my home that make me happy.
It is a joy for me to sort through my collection of flowers, treasured keepsakes, and this
year is no exception.
I would say that one of the glorious things about being older is I have quite a bit of stuff that I
have saved and I am so glad that I have.
I am not a hoarder-just a selective "saver of treasures."
I am so glad that I have held on to my various acquisitions, not only are they precious to me,
I rarely have to buy anything, unless of course I just have to...you know what I mean...
For awhile there I almost lost my way, with Pinterest and all...thinking I'd become an old
fuddy- duddy with my collections.
It was a close call for awhile but then I snapped myself back together,
and realized, that what I have is the real deal.
I am not very trendy, but I am steady.
There might even be some folks who would classify my decorating style as "outmoded."
But I like what I like and I am what I am, so this is what you will see when you visit me!
Another wreath I made, a treasured tea pot from my friend Laura (remember Laura??)
A great grandmother's sweet cup and a silk floral vine.
Swan from my Mother, and china from her Mother.
And this is how Spring looks in my dining-oh I will be adding a few Easter delights soon!
What is your decorating style?
