Of course, when I posted photos of our great room a few days
ago, I did so with great trepidation....Despite blogging about
design, home-keeping and whatever else gets posted here, I feel completely
freaked out about putting our home out there in blogland among the perfectly
designed, styled and coiffed spaces. I am ashamed to admit to having those feelings, at my
age I should be way beyond that.....and truth be told, I don't decorate
or style our home for this blog, for a magazine, for Pinterest......
I style and decorate our home for the people I share it with,
the most important people in my world.....who often roll their eyes as they watch me do
what I seem to do best - crazy fluffing, styling, collecting, home-keeping momma.
What I do in our home, creating spaces that are personal, and comfortable
and meaningful is an imperfect expression of the
love I feel for those I share our home with.
Your compliments, my bloggy friends are lovely. I wish
I could enjoy each of your company in my in great room, while sipping
a nice glass of wine. That's what homes and pretty spaces
are best used for......Instead I will leave you with these thoughts...
If you will remember, I went back to part-time professional work
a few months ago....it has been an adjustment and has completely
pushed me to evaluate what is most important to me and how
I want to define and live the second half of my life.....My small, yet
growing collection of vintage book titles above provide
clues to the simple, yet so important role I intend to ROCK!
Long live the QUEEN!
