Vintage Home Show.

Vendors bring their time worn, rusty, crusty and chippy goods.
Items are cash and carry, so you don't have to do that order & wait game.

Ella Elaine- Best of show Summer 2012

This is the event that I set up at in the past and my life has not been the same since I chose that door of opportunity to go through!!
The timing was terrible in my crazy life, but I just jumped in and went for it...

embrace opportunity

Ella on the House Hunt

Mr. Ella and I have decided to find a farm.
 A place where we can go to slow down and escape all of 
the noises and rushing around that the city brings.
A Country Retreat...

I almost talked myself into making an offer on the first property we looked at because I fell in love with the old wallpaper. 
I don't even use much color in my decorating anymore, but the timeworn softness of the faded paper had me at hello.

Layers of the past revealed... 

This old farmhouse is out in the country in the middle of NO where. 
Not a fancy place, but I can just imagine old iron beds dressed in white chenille and cotton curtains blowing in the warm breeze.

A touch of aqua to tug at my heart...


  

 We had to pass on this one for reasons having absolutely nothing to do with my passion for pretty walls!

You say Potato, I say Patina


  A dose of  patina anyone? 

 Excuse me for drooling every time I glance over at my new love of  this silver finish.
Anyone can cover a cabinet with gray paint, but only time and the extremely, extraordinary artsy kind can create a look like this.

Sprinkle in a little seasonal decor and I am a happy camper!
Merry Christmas to all of my junkin' buds!!
