"Happy New Year"

     I love THRIFTING, I love decorating, I love looking at beautiful rooms, I love rooms that are fresh and inspiring, I love gardens, I love it all and this is how I spent the last day of 2011.  

     Perhaps with all the DIY programs, HGTV, Sarah Inc., Dear Genevieve, The Antonio Treatment, and many more to choose from, more people have definitely returned their hearts to home again.

     One of my most favorite things to do is to sit in my living room with lights dimly lit, a cup of coffee and just love the space I've created. Each collection speaks a special sentiment in my heart either about a person, an event or the acquisition of a particular piece. The vast majority has just been through years and years of thrift stores, antique stores or special shops I have found.

     I believe this to be true, "There's No Place Like Home" and it's evident from the beautiful and inspiring blogs that I follow and new ones I find.

     I feel honored to be a part of the blogging community and grateful for the readers that have reached out with their kind comments and encouragement. Thank you and I hope you continue to read as I grow and The Blue Farmhouse blog evolves.

     Here's some pictures of some beautiful things I found the last day of 2011! By the way, I'm spending New Years Eve on the sofa with a cup of coffee and with my family, as we count our blessings!

     Enjoy and Happy New Year!

  1. Good morning! Just discovered your blog on Trina's site and I'm glad I did! I love the blue and white combination as well, although for now I'm decorating a home on a tree farm in Oregon, so the colors reflect that.


  2. Thank you Dianne for the kind words. I look forward to us sharing together. And of course, blessing to you!
