What a Journey

I have spent the last year on the hunt. Looking for anything I thought would go in our "new old " house.

I spotted this sink and I  knew it was just right for my studio.

 I didn't know where this door would end up, but it certainly had the right look.

 Same thing for this door....
Notice the cabinets to the left. Potential bathroom vanities.

 This cabinet may be a little more Shabby than Chic, but I think I will get Mr. Ella to spruce it up a bit for my butler's pantry.

Finding leaded glass windows to fit the transoms was a challenge, but I think this one will work!

Let the Tours Begin

Where have I been? I have been busy packing boxes for the move to our Romantic Prairie Home, fluffing the booth and also finding a little inspiration touring some homes decorated for the Holidays.

Saturday, I caught Colorado Nancy with my phone camera in this inviting dining room in McKinney.

We found some little birdies...

Some "less is more" Christmas decor.

Then on Sunday, I went with a group of ladies down to the Highland Park tour.
 These homes were definitely luxurious to say the least. Photo taking wasn't really allowed, but I did manage to snap a couple of pics.
 I love this idea. Do you think Mr. Ella would do the "eye roll thing" if  I suggested we paint this on our wooden floors in the Master Bath?
