My Vacation Slides

Does anyone remember slides?  They were quite fun really.  You'd all sit in a darkened room in anticipation.  It would take awhile to get the machine to work.  Some slides would be in wrong.  After a bit it would get really boring and you'd wander off.  OK, maybe that was just my family.  Anyway, here are some pictures I took on holiday in England - LOOK! (or feel free to wander off).


A stone cottage with gargoyles.



Wouldn't this be great to restore?



We passed by this intriguing window everyday.



A painted gate to a secret garden.



We came upon this out walking.  Obviously a fairy dwelling.



If you need a little help...



Look at these colors!



and these colors!



Gypsy boats



A basket and brush shop.



A quaint cafe.

Elizabeth's House

My darling husband's darling sister in England has such great decorating style!  Her home is always so homey and makes you feel happy to be there.  LOOK!



A pretty color for a welcoming door.



Eclectic art on a pumpkin colored wall.



How gorgeous is this stove?  Love the airy blue with the black stove and checkered floor tiles!



Sweet crocheted bunting in the kitchen window.



Fresh flowers, an antique statue and a handmade wedding cushion.



A wonderful "welcome home" banner across the fireplace.



A tiny powder room with a hot pink wall and a porthole window.



Relax with a cup on tea on the deck.

Etsy Favorites

Some things I'm loving on Etsy today - LOOK!


Starry Night Pottery Platter from DirtKicker.



This fantastic cut velvet bed cover from queendecor is perfect for the gypsy wagon.



A magical firefly lantern from BriannaPaigeDesigns.



Love this vibrant hippie skirt from WildThingsRun.



We really need rain here in Houston.  Maybe wearing this cloud necklace from AdeloCreations would help.



Original art portrait plaque at mirrorghost.



I think a vintage Indonesian tiara from ElrondsEmporium would be just the thing to wear around the house.



I just listed these vintage fabric covered mirrors at Babylon Sisters.  I imagine them being carried across the desert by camel to decorate the next yurt.



Upcycled velvet bracelet at TrailerParkGypsy.



Gorgeous petite chandelier at sheriscrystals.
