Home decorating has been of interest to me for so long that I don't actually think of it as a major hobby. It is just part of how I just do life. Therefore I assimilate information as I read, observe and study decorating principles. I think I have a good understanding of how it ticks. lol

I am making the switch from quilt kits, patterns and matchy fabric lines so why have I been so slow to realize I was not allowing what I luv to come to the for. I was shopping my house which is full of 'the price was right', it was given to me, or worse yet it was a reasonable facsimile of a design lesson. :O
With the chicks having flown the coop, the nest is now open for options. So why am I stuck in 'old' thinking. The opening photo makes me happy. I luv white, old white, white with terracotta trim, or wood. White ironstone has become a collection. It may not have been appropriate for five rambunctious kids and a Farmer who doesn't take his boots off, but ... My Rooster has scaled back to gardening and egg gathering. He takes his boots off. The grand kiddies have moved on from potty training! I have a part time job and discretionary spending money. I no longer 'have to' have that uncomfortable chair in the bedroom. And- I know how to Google! :)
Hey! Come to think of it, I DID save money.
