Sorry I'm running late today, but we were VERY busy yesterday at Amber's All-Region choir event. I'm just now enjoying some football and getting around the house.
One of my biggest fears about moving into our new home is that it won't feel "homey," like our little Victorian bungalow. I worry that all our eclectic things won't feel "right" in a brand-spanking new abode. However, I can follow the lead of Beck, one of our best friends. Beck's former house was small and cozy - it's the place where I met and married Roger, as well. She and her husband built a new home a few years ago, and I remember wondering if it would "feel the same." Beck has a unique style, and she took great pains to bring that style into their new environment, including her fabulous collection of glass paperweights: The jellyfish is by far my favorite, and yet you can't see its true beauty here. The pedestal is a light base, that changes colors periodically. This is only a portion of her collection, but aren't they beautiful?
Every season, Beck decorates her dining room table with the most fantastic displays. I could spend an hour, pilfering thru her creations, finding treasures. Here is the one we found, as we escaped trick-or-treaters at her house this past Halloween:To give her husband, Nick, some credit, the glow in the dark dragon on the bottom left is his.
My "find" in her bounty? These cork gourds - aren't they neat?Nick and Beck's new home is just as homey as the last - so I know where to go for decorating tips!
