Do you ever wonder if you should have been born in a different time period?
Lace and roses appeal to me as well as using real china dishes, really pretty glassware as opposed to plastic, and tablecloths.
A friend gave me a fireplace runner that is just absolutely stunning and, guess what? It's a perfect example of lace and roses.
It fits in nicely with our overhead old-fashioned lamp with crystal prisms.
After Christmas, I kept a golden angel on the fireplace mantel instead of packing him or her away with all the holiday goodies.
At night, it's nice to sit in the living room, light some votive candles set in pink holders on top of the fireplace mantel, and relax.
So many items in our house have come from thrift stores and yard sales that it's not funny.
The best thing is, a casual observer cannot tell that most items in the decor have been thrifted, since I try hard to make sure they are nicely displayed.
IF YOU COULD HAVE BEEN BORN INTO ANOTHER TIME PERIOD, WHAT WOULD IT BE?
