I am not able at this time to give you any photos of a room that is completed, because I don't have a single room that I've finished yet!
So I will give you a few photos of my inspiration pieces for the living room and kitchen, then you can get an idea of where I'm going with my decorating theme.
This cabinet was left in the basement by the previous owner.
I have brought it into the kitchen and plan to paint it either white or a blue to match my porcelain bowl pictured above.
You can see how beautifully this one turned out
after it was painted.
I can only hope I can do as good a job with mine as this lady did with hers.
You've seen this before-I had it in my cabin kitchen.
Can you see again that pretty blue?
I think it's my favourite colour right now for the kitchen.
This is the fabric for our living room curtains.
It matches our leather couch perfectly.
This is an old plate that I had forgotten that I had.
Unpacking is a bit like Christmas in some ways-so many surprises from things you'd forgotten that you had!
But then on the other hand, I can't find half the stuff I know I had either.
The verse on my little plate is really what I want to achieve in this cottage of ours;
The Cottage of Content
And we all know that that is a thing of the heart, not measured by our possessions or riches.
I would be lying if I tried to tell you that I don't take some joy from the things that I possess.
I have, however, been in a place in my life where I thought my days were numbered and I can tell you first hand from that experience that what I had hanging on my walls or what furniture I had in my home didn't mean a thing to me.
It literally disappears in significance.
All that matters then is family, your loved ones, and your relationship with your maker.
So I do try to keep it all in proper perspective.
Frankly I don't know how I got off on that little tangent. Maybe it was just a reminder for me!
This is what is beckoning me now.
I still have many flowers to get potted and seeds that need sown.
So I'm off.....
What is it that's calling you today?
