I love Somerset magazines;especially Prims.
Now let me tell you, I go from decorating shabby chic, to folk, to scandinavian to French Parisienne/country to industrial chic
I sat one day making charts of each:
Garden fixtures brought indoors
Chicken coop wire
Plain lined furniture
Odd little nic nacs
Linen, cotton, wool fabrics
White, cream, yellow/-gold, blues
Statues, busts and heads ofcwomrn, children, angels
Worn out tapestry furniture
Outdoor garden ideas
So what am I?
Some people say ecclectic. Some say bohemian. Oh yes, I love those too.
Cant afford to keep changing.
So, because it is fall, the folk art comes in. I have collected pine cones and acorns.
I have been drying hydrangea and herbs, rosehips and artemesia.
I have a couple antique Martha Washington bedspreads. Washed them good and am cutting them up to make pumpkins for decorating, giving as gifts and selling in the vintage shop I have space in. Dont worry, these are older spreads an don't look pretty as spreads anymore. They are being put to better use.
I love looking at what other artists come up with... inspiring. Then I draw my own patterns.
I recently had carpal tunnel surgery and trying to handsew.
The question now is to grunge or not to grunge...
