I LOVE PHOTOGRAPHY / NOW, I LOVE INTERIOR DESIGN . I LOVE THE COTTAGE AND COUNTRY LIVING FEEL. DECORATING WITH UNIQUE ELEMENTS I THINK HOMEDECOR SHOULD REFLECT YOU AND THE WAY YOU LIVE ....Theres no rules to home decor. DECORATED WITH UNIQUE ELEMENTS ..I say break the rules If there is such thing as Rules to decorating.

NOTE : Spending a weekend poking through dusty and poorly organized shops. I found Myself looking through what seems like endless treasure. I struggle a lot with many of the items simply because I wonder about the history of each item... Wonder where they came from and if they could talk what they would say.
