Challenge Numero Dos for the FFA!

FFA-Vintage Revivals-1[3]

Woot! Woot! We are partyin' up in here! Rockin' the Homegoods Survey and figuring out the name of our style.

This is what they layed on me:

Karen, you are a Glamorous Eclectic

You have wide-ranging interests and influences and so appreciate a mix of whatever you deem fantastic. You would be bored to tears using a matching suite of furniture or could never stand a home that seemed cookie-cutter. You fearlessly embrace luxury, beauty and fun. Velvet, silver, graphic patterns, even wallpaper; you understand the old-Hollywood, movie star sense of theatrical extravagance. You do not understand the minimalist idea of less is more. For you, more is more, so long as it is chic and exciting.

You value creativity. You are stylish and fun loving, and can be an inspiration to others. You have a natural sense of drama, and you know you have to be willing to take risks—whether with colors, finishes, furniture choices, or ideas—for your home to stand out. Your home can be happy and lively and the place all of your friends want to be.

Hmmmm...Homegoods are you employing some peepers?  You got me. I love to try the unexpected, I despise hotel furniture (matchy sets), and I NEVER think less is more EVER!

uhm...okay, I stand corrected!

You should go give the quiz a run thru and see if they are peekin' in your windows, too!

My apologies to all the lovely people who came and commented after the last challenge.  I tried to respond and blogger is being hateful. A move may be in the offing soon but, Lord, all that packing and lugging and forwarding of the mail...

First Mission Accepted!

Catch A Dream

 So, I have joined this cool club over at Vintage Revivals.  We are planning to come up with all sorts of scientific formulas and worksheets on home decor

...or no, we are going to dance nekkid in the moonlight while swiggin' champagne and slinging paint...

Wrong again!  Those were last weeks clubs.  Actually, I am not much of a club goer.  But I think Mandi is hilarious and I am always in the mood to talk decor and DIY.  So, what do I want my home to say to me? or about me? I want it to feel like a hug.

  Every time the news comes on bad news and ugliness abound. I don't care if my colors aren't the "color of the year" or my furniture isn't this years model. If you walk in and feel like you just stepped into a jewelry box of comfort and the world outside ceases to exist...then I am happy.
