l'm a big fan of home décor magazines and books....especially mags like Romantic Homes. and Romantic Country where every page is an absolute eyefeast....not for me these articles showing a couple of sticks of furniture and oodles of blank space. l mean, l know lots of people like simple and streamlined, but for me....l want to see LOTS of lovely things in a pic.....you can prob'ly see this in my photos where l try and fill up the spaces and create photos that are (hopefully) visually interesting..... even though l don't live with stuff everywhere all the time.....ok...well maybe just a bit:-)
.....and wall spaces offer so much scope for decoration....just like a huge blank canvas. Here l've used washi tape to hang the prints and the teeniest nails for the weightier bits and pieces. I read somewhere that you can push a smidgin of toothpaste into nail holes in walls to hide them, though l've never actually tried it to say if it's true, and l guess too this would only work on pale walls.
l found another vintage wedding dress (60's) to add to my small collection, it was irresistible with it's long train smothered in vintage millinery flowers.
A Master's hardware store recently opened in our town and they offer free samples of wallpaper. l brought home quite a few thinking l might do a feature wall sometime. They were all so lovely it seemed wasteful not to find a purpose for them, so the matching blue ones now cover my old hatbox. Not quite vintage but hey it will be in 25 years:-)
Found another old sentiment cup, and one of the stall holders at the Sunday market had the little gold crown, so that makes three...... and there begins ANOTHER collection:-)
lsn't this rose painting lovely, it's oil on canvas board and cost only 50cents at the opshop....it's unsigned which is a bit of a shame, but whoever painted it did an awesome job.
Roses and lilac in my kitchen window.
