Feeling the Blues ???

Oh my.... Are you feeling the blues????? I personally have never painted a blue room but find the cottage country home look with the chicken lover a playful way of adding chicks to be very cheerful... The collection has been show cased in different areas and invite you to the different areas... I find the use of blue inspired by natures skies to be inspiriting... I own not a thing in blue in my home but find the accessories, flowers, and fabrics, and textures very appealing... Combining flea markets, shops, yard sales
and new and old, windows, garden gates, porch columns, and shutter can achieve a country cottage look...
This home seems to have been pictures as the kind of home they wanted to have and found inspiration from our egg laying friends... It seems as though, if you love it, you will find a place for it... The continuing love of blues and whites seems to affectionately for no wrong... The charm is not hidden... but really speaks... what a sweet country cottage style home......

Oh my, where have you been all this time that I've searched for a lovely blog that is as wonderful to look at as it is to read? I found you through another blog and I'm so glad that I looked you up. I will definitely be back. Love, love the blue and the chicks. My husband and I are trying to edit our "look" to reflect a simpler lifestyle--however, I just can't let go of the vintage influences I love so much. Thank you for sharing and keeping your blog so up to date. You made my Saturday!

Hi Marietta!

Love that casual country style... somehow I never achieve that one. THanks for your sweet comments. We LOVE being relieved of the pressures we were feeling at our home. The yardwork was getting to be too much for us and we never enjoyed our accomplishments, we were either too tired or too much pain. We had to get rid of lots of "stuff", a real purging of things. But we did it, kept our dearest treasures and it's working for us.
We're so happy we made this change in our lives. It's something to think about as the years roll by faster & faster. Our kids are so happy we did this.
Blessings & hugs to you! Sherry

Love the chickens.....I even have some in my kitchen. I had real chickens untill my daughters dog killed them and I just gave up trying to keep them. I do miss the free range eggs. Yum!

Beaded-board....and glass fronted cabinets are a favorite look of mine...NEITHER of which we have in our home right now...but will if I have my way about it...at least the beaded-board.

I love blue ~ the clear blues, I am not overly fond of the aqua blues that are so popular now.
I love seeing blue featured in romantic homes and not just country style. One reason I always looked forward to the Summer issue of Victoria Magazine!

You have a wonderful blog! I just love the blue on those walls too. I have to say I would just die to have that white table too. I am inspired to paint my walls blue now!
