Inspirations


More Jeanne d' Ark Living used for inspiration in my home.. Hidden deep in my stash were these two empty frames I had previously used in my vintage area for selling at the shop.. The very old photos were in my scrapping collection of stuff... and the clock face and little brass stencil number were both from the give a way from Tracey at http://frenchlarkspur.blogspot.com .... Tracey hasn't posted for several days as she is on a trip to Paris... Can you imagine all the lovely stuff she will be sharing after her return and settle in...
Renewing my home with already found antiques and vintage finds seems to be working.. Soon I will get to the period of time were I will be spending most of my time out of doors and I don't fret allot of time away doing redos... Then when October arrives and the home gets closed back up from the chill the need to change things around comes into play again. I think doing the frames in this manner requires being somewhat risky and brave... and again I know it isn't a look for everyone.. I think it is fun and a standout however... With objects you love surrounding us in a fun way it makes it delightful... A charming house makes for great moods and not boredom... A unexpected object is always a great bonus and exclusive feel... Do something unexpected in your special area today... You will be glad you did. TIP. Adding elegance with the use of crystals is a wonderful when not over exaggerated and tucked with the vintage objects that bring it back to charm and coziness. If a home is too elegant and grand it gets to that I can't sit here feel and that is not what most of us are looking to achieve for our living spaces... They skies seem to be darkening and swelling up and mother nature may be paying us a cold wet visit here soon.... I am off to a ladies golf league meeting this morning ..... I have changed my playing league from Monday nights to Tuesdays mornings.....Again it is a wonderful way for me to share time and exercise with other ladies..... Hope you have a lovely day....
