Okay ~ I Took Dawn's Advice! :)
Well, last night I read Dawn's(Just*Simply*Prim)Blog. And in her blog she talks about finding your passion when decorating your home. I replied to her blog last night saying I was drawn to the Colonial style. Which I am. I LOVE it. When I look through decorating books and magazines, I fall in love with every Colonial style home I see. And Linda's (Behind The Red Door) pictures of her home always make me drool!
But is that my Passion?
So this morning when I got up, I looked around my home. I thought about Dawn's post and began to walk through my rooms.
Even though right now I am pretty much tired of most of things in my home. And I am in the mood to change somethings... I asked myself,
What is your passion... What Do You Love!
And in no particular order this is what I came up with.
The patina of Antique Wood.
Items With Old Worn Paint.
Old Wooden Chairs.
Antique Teddy Bears.
Yellow Ware and RedWare.
Old Wood Bowls.
Antique, Home Made, Children's Toys and Furniture.
Early Jars. Especially ones with pontil bottoms.
Crocks and Crock Jugs.
Antique, Early Americana.
Early Antique Cookie Cutters.
OLD Wooden BOXES (I love old wood boxes)
Early Blue Calico (and antique brown homespun)
Antique Baby Shoes.
Old Wooden Buckets and Firkin's.
Antique Early Brooms.
All of these things I do have a definite Passion for. I can never get enough. Also one more thing I Love.
I love Brown and Mustard Yellow.
Nearly every room of my home is in one of these shades. So what I have discovered is my passion seems to be the "Farmhouse" Style.
But I LOVE LOVE LOVE the Colonial Style.
... Is there such a thing as a "Colonial Farmhouse Style".
Hummm... I need to do some research. Can I have the best of both. Somehow tap into the Colonial decorating qualities without giving up the things I most definitely have a Passion for. Maybe just maybe.
Thanks so much to Dawn for a wonderful post last night. Thanks so much for stopping by everyone. Today is hubby's day off from work... so heading out to spend some time with him.
Happy Prim Wishes to you all.
