Sometimes we find ourselves with a collection of things we had no idea we were collecting...hence my collection of Fleur di lys. I love them and over the years I've found myself with quite a collection of "Fleur" items. So many that I decided to start a wall grouping using just a few. I had a blank wall in my home office/studio that was perfect for a wall collage.

I love how it turned out. The grouping comes only a little over halfway down the wall so I plan to find a chest piece to go under it along that same wall. I'm looking for something old, but not worn. Something that could be refinished and antiqued.

As I said before, I have several items that have the Fleur di lys symbol....can you guess how many?? The person with the closest guess will win a prize. Don't forget to leave your email addy.

Rooster Madness Monday

Mishelle over at The Crowned Casa is will be hosting Rooster Madness Monday. Here are some of my rooster cutties from my old kitchen. I currently only have ONE rooster in my kitchen..Iknow..I know..I can't believe that myself, however that could change at any minute.



My Love Affair With The Color Blue

I'm sure I'm not alone on this. I am really loving whats being done with the color blue lately. Some of my favorite bloggers out there (and you know who you are) are doing some incredible decorating around this color.

Turquoise: Is being used on many beautiful furniture pieces, as accents in rooms or as the main color scheme by choosing to paint the entire room that color. Take for instance these chairs from Paris Hotel Boutique, these are beautiful. I love how the black accentuates the line of these chairs, beautiful and elegant.

Take a look at all the bluish...turquoise pieces Horchow has to offer.

All of these pieces are beautiful...a little pricey, but gorgeous. Really gets my decorating juices flowing.

Autumn is Here!

Autumn has finally arrived at my house! I'm really enjoying all the beautifully adorned homes out there in "Blog Land". So many creative women. This is one of my favorite seasons, all the beautiful colors, leaves changing, a slight nip in the air. And lets not forget, yet another chance to make changes to my interior. I'll be posting those pics very soon.
