Nordic French...Flea Market....Industrial Chic......

                                  "What would you call your style" someone recently asked me....
                                        I thought about it for a moment and then said....
                                          "Why its...modern country swedish nordic french rustic farmhouse industrial chic flea market style of course"......ahhhhh....what is my style ????? does it really matter,do I have to have a name for it...is there a name for it??? Do you know EXACTLY what your style is.......
                                      I think what matters more than having a name for how you decorate is the fact that you like your own style....that your home reflects you..don't you agree?  
         Oh well lets just hope no one else asks me that question for a while.....oh and I want to thank everyone who left me a note on my last post....your the best! x0x0 Chrissy

Not all who wander are lost....

                                  Good morning....no you did not go to the wrong blog....but you won't find any decor in this post......the photo above is our Meg and my John.....the one below is Meg(third from the left) and some of her friends..the Meg we all know and love,the fun loving,silly beautiful girl.....who has another side to her..a serious side....filled with compassion and hope and a nature so caring its hard to believe she is only 19...its this side of her that is taking her on a journey....back to Haiti....
                                         For the second time in her life she will go without the luxury of many things...good food,showers,clean clothes....her family near her....but next month Meg leaves for Haiti to do whatever she is asked,to help in anyway she can.....in a home for children that have nothing but the love of people who like Meg , would stay forever if they could...
                                     her heart is in Haiti...she talks of little else these days...
                                    I am happy for her....I am proud of her and I am worried about her too...
                                     but I also know there is no stopping her.....she has an old soul and a huge heart......and I must remind myself..."Not all who wander are lost"......and she will wander that I know!!!!!  Thanks for taking the time to read this post....Chrissy

And so it goes......

                                              Another weekend has come and gone....
                                      and  tomorrow we start all over again....
                                     doing all the chores and errands, the cooking the cleaning...    
                                               the laundry....all the usual things....
                                            but  we should never be so busy that we forget to be inspired....
                                                by all the beauty that surronds us...
                                             and of that there is plenty!!!   Chrissy x0x0   (images from butik sophie)
