Even though we live in a log home, I'm not all 'western' and country....there's some German, some English....Victorian in me. I love some antiques, but it is the eclectic combination of things that makes it all home for me. So, I just went around the house and started taking some pictures of things here and there that are quite 'me.' So.....come on along and I'll tell you the story:
This is the lamp on the nightstand in the guest bedroom. I call it 'the bed and breakfast room' because I change it up for the seasons and holidays and unless someone is staying in there, it's almost almost 'perfect.' It's the one place in the house that is always pretty and I just love walking by the room and peeking in!
On the nightstand is a guest log.....like a bed and breakfast, with a 'log' pen, of course! The photograph is of my beloved pet Moose and my step-daughter, who is now 20 and in college. She is the youngest in this family of 5 children.....On the switch of the light hangs a tassle--I love these, too...whimsical little things that give a bit of character and well, 'whimsy' to just about anything!
|a bit of lace is here there and everywhere, too! This little piece is heart-shaped and the lamp is a real log made into a lamp....I don't LOVE the lamp, however. Maybe 2011 will bring a new one to this spot!|
Next up is a photograph with a big story behind it...to make it quick, I had scheduled an appointment with a photographer for my 3 daughters to be photographed in vintage wear to make the picture appear of another era. I was driving my middle and youngest daughter and my oldest daughter was meeting us there. We ran a bit late and my oldest daughter said, when we arrived, that because we were late, she refused to be in the photograph. How sad is that? She's the one with a bit of a temper....so we made the best of it, but I do wish I had all three of them in this photo....it was really quite fun!

|a bit of a collection....things I cherish|
|I love the way the logs are cut in this spot of the house|
|I read Celestine Prophecy long ago...but have never forgotten its message: There are NO chance encounters!|
|Behind the angel is one of my MANY copies of the book: Simple Abundance by Sarah Ban Breadnach; I have a copy of her book in nearly every room of my house....for me, it's inspiration!|
|silly little things I find that go here and there|
