Form Versus Function?

Me...The Blue Farmhouse

     I'm curious to know how many of us...that's collectors, thrifters and do-it-yourself decorators actually use the lovelies we find or are they for display only? In part I think the answer certainly is both...we use them and when they aren't then it's pure 'eye candy'!

     I love to entertain my friends as often as I can but my home is certainly 'lived' in as well. So I leave you with a couple of functional finds I discovered for my home over the weekend... and a quote I keep with me so that I don't get overwhelmed in the process... 

A cute white eyelet lined (removable) laundry basket

Rhodes Party Bucket from Pottery Barn

Two arm chairs that match the others I had already

"The ability to simplify means to eliminate the unnecessary so that the necessary can speak."

A quote from Rachel Ashwell's book "Shabby Chic Interiors My Rooms, Treasures and Trinkets

Thanks for dropping by!
