White Wednesday....

white wednesday....
Over the last few weeks, we have been very busy working on new projects. I was talking to a client the other day, about my design philosophy.
She asked me how I pick out my furniture? Where I get my furniture?
Well I simply explained to her, that I would never buy something that I wouldn't put in my own home. Everything I buy, I do love it, and see it already finished in a decorated room.
I get my furniture from all over, so I couldn't say just one place.
But as we talked, we started getting into my most favorite things,
which are
The simplicity of roses in a recycled glass jars,

An antique white chippy urn filled with coral

Stacks, and Stacks of antique grainsacks from Belgium, and Germany

A line of white finger starfish to remind me of the calm and serenity of the ocean

My favorite vintage glass and beaded rinestone necklace,
that I wear on special occasions

Anything with ruffles....
Last but not least, anything architectural.
I have this architectural header that I purchased on one of my buying trips, I love it, and soon will hang it above my bed.

So my design philosophy is, if you love something, buy it, it will only make you happy.

Hi Loretta,
I absolutely adore your blog site. I'll have to visit you at Country Roads when I move back this summer. I've been shopping there since 1992 and always find the most amazing things. Are you selling those grain sacks? And if so, how much are they.
Beautiful post!

oh my goodness....where have I been to have just discovered your blog?? I love every single picture in this post! I giggled when I saw the little stool w/ white ruffles & ballet slipper ties ~ my last post was on a slipcover I just finished...white w/ ruffles & same ties! You'll have to come see.

Oh and the stacks of grain sacks make my heart flutter!

Love your store ~ could move right in. Do you sell online too?

We sure do like the same things. I'd love to see more of your architectural piece and loving the simplicity of the flowers in the glass jars.

Always love to see your goodies.
