Can't help myself.....










I thoroughly enjoy looking at pictures of serene white rooms such as these...... however my own home looks nothing remotely like those photographs. Nope. My house is a eclectic mishmash of treasures from afar, roadside finds, thrift store junk, remnants of dead things (starfish, shells, fur, butterflies and moths, coral, wood burls) and color on the loose. I love my space. It is my home and it is comfortable. I feel like my home is a reflection of me. I was reading an old Oprah magazine the other day and found this quote..... "A house is the archaeology of your life, the history of who you are". I like that!

I love old things and I LOVE color. I aspire to one day create a serene, white space.... but inevitably color creeps in and I get carried away. I will post some pictures soon of my colorful chaos. Until then.... here are a few pictures that grabbed my attention.





.... and some lovely sumptuous pillows to feast your eyes upon....
