Room 72

At the beginning of the year I posted about plans to finally redo the master bedroom in my home and then got totally sidetracked and never posted the finished room. So without further delay, here is the finished room. We used a deep rich chocolate brown by Ralph Lauren on the walls and bright white on the trim and ceiling. I have mixed primitive pieces with painted ones, as well as a chunky pine bed and a fab pine wardrobe from England. Hope you approve...

What I Love~Part Five

Okay I admit it~~I do love these hoe shields and have quite a collection of them. I know they are in stark contrast with my other "pretty" collections, but that is exactly why I love them. My style has always been to pair very primitive, rustic elements with very pretty ones. And for me it works. What are hoe shields you ask? Well they are basically part of a piece of farm machinery--the sort of things that till the soil. I find them beautiful and interesting, and I hope you will as well...

These particular hoe shields are my private collection and are not for sale. However I do have similar shields that are for sale and if interested please contact me regarding purchase of one or more.

What I Love~Part Four

So who doesn't love brown transferware, right? Well then you won't be surprised to see it on the list of my favorite things as well! I have been collecting platters, plates, bowls and butter pats (love love love butter pats!) for some time now and have developed a fairly sizeable collection. I especially go crazy for pieces with that beautiful mottled look. One of my fav pieces is the huge platter in the wall cabinet. I put a sweet oval frame in front of it for effect. Hope you will be inspired to start your own collection~~if you haven't already!

**Sorry but this is a personal collection and not for sale.
