It's so nice to be inspired!
OK...I'll admit it. I have a tendency to obsess when I see something I really like. When I visited my friend Barb's new home two weeks ago, I fell in love with so many things. She is quite the artist and her sense of color and style is 'loverly'! She used many vintage items throughout her home and I got very excited to see new ways to decorate with old things. I would love to find one special doll dresser-just adore the way she has those displayed. Her paintings (or were they water colors?) are wonderful and the way she decorated her laundry room is just the cutest thing! I was inspired to start this blog by reading her daughter Kim's blog. Kim gave her mother a wonderful birdcage-which Barb decorates for each season. On my fun day yesterday, I visited 'The Red Dresser' in it's new location, just around the corner from where it used to live (very close to 'The Candle Factory' in Traverse City). I found a nice, vintage birdcage and it came back to the cottage with me. I have some paper mache birds at home who will be flying outside this wonderful cage very soon.
PS I still am obsessing about the owl clock that Kim showed on her blog...keep wondering which room it would live in with me! LOL
