Photobucket

before i had photos of my kids....




would still like to have photos of the family....maybe silhouettes??



french nordic meets the american prairie type of thing???



i have the matching side tables and lamps on either side of the couch....to symmetrical??



yes, the lamps are me trying to bring a little stripped down industrial style to my home...hhmm...working? not working? {plan on changing the bulbs to clear vintage style}

you have me drooling, too!

Tracey said...

Girl, you just have me in awe at the kindness you have shown me by featuring my little ole shop in such a wonderful way!!! You are a sweetheart!!! Thank you for this!

...how about hanging some cool grain sacks on the wall...that seems like French-Nodic meets prairie to me! You could hang them by themselves or put a slightly bigger frame around them, no glass, just a cool Frenchy frame to add emphasis...might I suggest a pale grey:) I'm all about juxtaposition!

Thanks again, really, you are too kind!

btw, I ran out of my usual pretty tissue and it was on back order, so Kasey lent me some of hers to get me by for a few days...hence her comment :)
