A "Vignette" in my New Home !!!





This is an area in my home that I finally finished.. It is everything that I love.. I
purchased most at Yard Sales, Thrift Stores, Antique.. all bought on a dime.. I can't
paint in our home because it is a Rental.. That is o.k. because I have a blank canvas .. it
is all white walls... I guess you could say that I LOVE everything.. I do not have Design
rules or believe in them.. I am decorating with things that I love and make our Family
feel good.. I am of Danish Ancestry.. It shows in my decorating.. I love Knick Knacks and
things to fill up the walls.. I guess the Danes do the same..
I started with My Daughters New painting "Serenity" on a previous post as an inspiration
but, I have mixed different styles.. It seems to work.. I really don't care because I am
decorating with what I love... I went to a home a few months ago and when I look around
everything was decorated in Butterflies.. They were everywhere.. in prints, wind chimes,
vases, butterflies all around the room.. Talk about feeling Good!!! I loved that room .. She
didn't care about what anyone thought.. I asked her "Why did you decorate with butterflies?"
She said.. because.. "I Love them.. They make me feel happy"!! Wow.. That was good enough
for me... Decorate with what makes you HAPPY!!! I still have a wall that I am going to fill
with Family pictures.. I need to gather them together.. My Family is the Most Important
to me.. I am proud of them.. They are My World.. Everything.. I will post more pictures of
our Home later... Have fun doing what you LOVE!!

I love your wall. Those are the types of pieces I like too! Sometimes I think I have way too many family pictures in my house. They make me happy and I just can't seem to eliminate. Happy Walls. I like that phrase.

I love your wall Caleen and agree with you about decorating with things you love...I think that is a wonderful "theme", "My home is decoreated in the things I love" style....beautiful!

I am sure a "decorator" would have plenty to say about everything wrong about my home, but I do what I love too!
