When I talked about how I always get great inspiration from Charles Faudree's books, so many of you said you did also, however you also love all the Nell Hill's book. Well, I know I am slow, but out of all the decorating books that I have I didn't have even one Nell Hill. So I got busy online at Amazon and found 3 of her books that sounded interesting and at fabulous used prices. I mean for a couple of dollars each, I just had to have all 3.
They came in the mail today. It totally feels like Christmas and I can't wait to really read and study them.
Just a quick thumb through let me know that I would totally love her style. I love farm animal paintings and isn't this one absolutely stunning. Her attention to detail in vignettes is also fabulous.
I just won this beautiful sheep painting on Ebay, so you can see why I was so excited to see hers in the above picture. I can't wait to get it and then find the perfect frame for it.
When I saw this bed and the fabrics she used, my heart skipped a beat. I am using similar colors and fabrics in my guest bedroom. You remember the one that is totally in my head and hasn't even started. I do at least have the comforter, and some of the mens suiting fabric almost idential to these pillows, so I at least have a start. Now as soon as I get new flooring, paint, furniture and - - - - - -. Oh well, it will be a while, but it will get there. I also think that toile fabric is the same one Kim uses and it is stunning too.
I no more than got home from the mailbox and the doorbell rang and I received the most wonderful package from Pretty Is. She had a fabulous giveaway and I won. If you havn't visited her blog, you really need to. She is such a lovely person and her blog is delightful. She had that box stuffed to the brim with goodies.
I so agree, this is the best way to clean.
Can't you just imagine how much better all the tea she enclosed is going to be drinking it from this beautiful
She had a huge assortment of tea inside this precious little hatbox. I totally adore it.
Now you all know that I am crazy about bunnies, and isn't this one just about the cutest thing you've ever seen.
Fabulous treasures and I just love them all. Be sure to visit her and say hi, she is just the sweetest.
Ok, I'm going to make a cup of tea, drool over all my gifts and start browsing my Nell Hill's books. If you don't have any of her books, you really need to try them too. I just know I am going to love them all.
Thanks so much for stopping by, I always look forward to your visits.
