Normally I don’t do pretty.
It’s not that I don’t like pretty,
I am a true romantic at heart,
I love the hand of a beautiful piece
of cloth, or a bit of lace and ribbon,
but somehow that’s not what
shows up on the studio table.
I love all those blogs and mags
that show sumptuous rooms
filled with white
(not with four dogs however)
and romantic, vintage bits
and lovelies like Cat has
always. Birdcages, fountains,
dried branches and mosses.
In my house and my life they
would be destroyed in an instant.
So I have given up the notion of
having that perfect living room
with antique bottles and old velvets
draping everything for the more
sturdy and practical leather and
distressed wood look.
But my son’s shop needed some
romantic updating for Fall and
I spent yesterday on part one,
some new decorative wall pieces
to spruce things up. Thank goodness
for Prima Marketing and others like
them for making so much available
for just this purpose.
Some pretties and whimsies for
More to come. Happy Monday all.
