I love cottage, farmhouse & french country ~ better yet, love mixing them.
Not to be easily defined here at MSH, those 3 styles combined with splashes of color are my decorating vernacular.
My decorating choices are not ruled by a period, a look or a trend.
“I know it when I see it” is my only rule for decorating, if you could call that a rule.
Happy all cottage-y, farm-y & french-y, but feeling like the mix could use a bit more bling.
And…I knew that feeling was right when I saw it!
This week I snatched up this sparkly light fixture to scratch my itch for bling! (light & photo via Overstock.com ~ inexpensive & $2.99 shipping!)
Do you love it?
It will go in the entry ~ I can’t wait!
But what I really truly can’t wait for is to land in Santa Fe today. I am heading there for a girls weekend with my roommates from college!!
I may be there already there when you read this, but if you have any dining or doing suggestions for Santa Fe do leave me a comment please.
I talked about container garden planting this week. How you need to follow my advice. ( …you maybe thinking “She is so bossy!” ) Well, that may be the case, but here is another example of my containers done right.
Planted these for a client almost 4 months ago using my “3 secrets”. On Tuesday I snapped this photo, they still look like the day I put them in. So bossy or not, trust me.
Did you enter my handmade sign Give Away? Well, pop on over to see if you are the winner.
If you are, I will contact you by email when I land! (You know the winners are picked by the computer right…so I won’t know until I land either!)
Our Pinterest Board of Interest this week is H O M E curated by Jamie Gernert. Here is a little peek…
Now that is a lot of container plants! I hope they used you know what. I’m just saying…
No doubt, amongst other things, I will be filling my college friends in on how much I LOVE blogging with you. I really do you know.
Have a wonderful weekend!
