Hi blogging friends I really have been out of touch from the world of blogging and all that digital stuff. For some reason in all my many moves this ones was & still is the hardest. Are you an accumulator? Do you save way too much stuff? Are you a sentimental collector like me well when it is time to clean house & move your life it is stressful.. for me it has been overwhelming but it is great to get rid off all the stuff... what is that stuff anyway? I am in my new home here on the farm & have a way to go getting it together. I am posting some pictures for you to see some of the "things" I have kept & love.. Life is changing I love when this happens....it's like a rebirth for me... I will be in touch many good things happening... Love to hear from you. Believe me I am grateful I am finally getting there!!!! xooxo Laura
some of my many garden/ Victorian inspired paintings..one of my old addictions. over it now.
antique shoe rack I am using for extra bowls/dishes.. inspired by Rachel Ashwell.
My Grandmothers dishes & thrift shop urn find.
my carved old doors I never painted.. maybe in time a washed Grey?
my old cabinet that I had in my studio now stores my books.
what to do with an old shawl... tack it to your bathroom window... I placed a lladro ballarina I was given as a gift many years ago on the sill.
The real deal... Aunt Nannia"s cupboard I placed in my kitchen.. used for spices & vitamins.. another favorite piece I will cherish.
this chair & white cover..believe it or not is 17 years old... something I will be true to White, linen & Vintage
My favorite dresser I have had for many many years... I sold most of my furniture during my move but this one I will not let go of... for now
work in progress.. I want to create a sitting area in my bedroom with an alter/mantel honoring my Grandmothers...
what's this.... necklaces rolled up in an antique quilt from the move... oh way too many I have issues?
working on creating a dressing/closet area with all my favorite accessories.
my favorite view is from the shower... in the morning I look for the momma eagle sitting on the tippy top of that branch way up high in the tree top ( see the branch) feeding her baby... in the evening I look Up at the moon & stars count my blessings & thank God for being home here. xoxoxo Laura
