On a much lighter and happier note: I just seen an amazing give away being offered over at Funky Junk Interior's blog!! I LOVE her blog because she has a certain style that is really me. She made me realize that my house is all wrong for me! I don't like dark colors in my home, but I always seem to end up living in them. Why is that? Ironically enough, my house with first husband was dark with dark trim and cabinetry. I hated it, the wall paper was dark and looked like a dead forest at dusk without the pretty sunset. Depressing! Even though it was devastating at first, our house caught fire one day and it was the best thing to have happen to that house. I left NOTHING dark in there in the remodel. Now, my current home is dark trim & cabinetry again with lots of brick & stonework. I think the rustic shabby chic look works for this house and I'm trying to incorporate that little by little.
Anyway, I regress. My point is that Donna over Funky Junk is having a give away from Katie's Rose Cottage Design. If you love the rustic shabby chic look, then you need to go check this out. It's simple, just check out KRCD and comment on Donna's blog what you liked. If you want another chance, then just post about it on Twitter, Facebook or your own blog & tell her about that too!
