Creating Vignettes & Dreams of a Victorian House!

As I have mentioned several times before, I love creating vignettes. Here are a few in my master bedroom. I am always changing and rearranging things. I find the need to do this since I am older. I guess I just need to change things around & make them fresh. Who knows why!?! I would love to have a huge, 2 story, Victorian house with 6 bedrooms upstairs & 3 bathrooms. I would be in Victorian, Romantic & Chic Heaven. I would have one bedroom in all shades of whites...white furniture with appliques, white linens, off white walls, lots of lace & frills. I would add a few flowers for a tiny bit of color, such as pale blue hydrangeous & light pink cabbage roses in silver tea pots. That would be just one bedroom upstairs!!!lol

Sherry,
I love your talent for putting vignettes together in such a beautiful and unique way. Do you know what month your home will be featured in Country Victorian. I want to be sure to get a copy of the magazine.

Great article, of course, the Elegant Bedroom Furniture you offer is great, but looking over the Internet I found this, which I think is best, www.spacify.com

Hi Sherry, My goodness I love the fireplace mantel, the details are gorgeous on it and what a beautiful piece of lace material.. I was wondering, where did you get it? I would love to have some of that.

I would love to have a Victorian house too. I would also be very happy in a large sprawled out ranch with a big porch and large columns. It makes things a little bit easier to get around in a ranch.

Hoping your weekend is just Grand-
