Hi everybody. I am so glad you came by this evening. It is time for a coffee break, so I love your stopping in. A cup of coffee is good anytime of the day, but a little pick me up in the late afternoon or early evening is just special. We're having French Vanilla today. I don't use it often, but thought this was a good day for it. We have just had a thunderstorm and it smells so good outside. With the coffee it smells good inside too. Anyway I have to admit to being a blog hopper. I love reading blogs and seeing how other people decorate. You never let me down. I get so inspired when I see the little vignettes you assemble. Your porches and gardens, as well as just your over all decorating. I hear people more often than not painting everything black. I didn't think I had much black, but found a piece or two. I also hear people asking is stenciling out of style. It is my opinion stenciling will never go out. I have none in my house, but hopefully one day Deb will decide she is going to do a room or two for me. She doesn't stencil, she does free hand.I'll show you some of hers in her house, in another post. My decorating philosophy, oh my I didn't even know I had one,lol, is do what you like and love. It is your house do what you want. If you want to paint it purple do it! What ever makes you happy. There is so much turmoil in the world, our homes are our sanctuaries. Make your home yours.
I will share the few black pieces I have with you. I don't have many.
A black candle stand.
My black heart, on my wall of love.
A black German Pub chair
Black chairs in the dining room. A craigs list find by Deb. Six chairs, two with arms for are you ready? $120.00! I couldn't believe it. I love how they sit, but man they show dust! I had mid 1800 chairs before and they sure were pretty, but not too comfortable to sit on! These are really comfortable.
Black patio set. As I said I don't have much black.
This is my favorite black thing.Dasko.
