Window shopping....



Can you imagine sleeping on these beautiful sheets....or how about these curtains hanging in my dining room ...or o.k your dining room.....I am gobsmacked at their beauty...but also at their price ! Got to love Anthropologie for inspiration but does anyone really shop there? Enjoy your week my friends! x0

Barn Door Love....





I love barn doors....John build us the closet in the front hall using an old barn door...my favorite part is the hardware...we picked it up in Ballyshannon,Ireland a few years ago.Have another one just leaning....serves no real purpose but I don't care! Then of course our kitchen island top is a barn door too...hey,thats three does that mean I have a collection? Hope you have a great day...be back soon with photos of Shannon's...I am "TWEEKING" her dining room tonight! x0x0

Things I love....


I love dried hydrangeas...& how fragile they are.......I love bits of lavender.........everywhere...& the ruffness of burlap....






and any kind of paper tag...they're in almost every vignette..








I love having a lamp beside my bed.....and the light it casts after dark...and having beautiful pillows to curl up with at the end of the day.....













I love my aged boxes that look like books...and my vintage bottles...















and I love to blog about things that I love and I love that you leave me wonderful comments.......thank-you! x0x0

City chic & a love for Haiti....















































Well.....what can I say, this is Meg's room! At 19 you would think her room would be filled Cosmo magazines & party pictures....but not my Meg....she picked a colour that reminded her of Haiti and filled her room with photos and memories of there.....the iron heart(from Haiti) is her most loved treasure & the photo below it was a gift from me because I knew she would love it...three big bright enlarged photos of Haiti on her wardrobe and the rest in black and white fill her room.....the last photo is her favorite...it speaks volumes don't you think? Hope you like her room as much as we do....and how about the brick wall...lucky girl!! ~Chrissy~
