Fall decorating -- naturally......

Thought I would post the rest of my pictures from our Saturday trip.  The lady who owns the cabins is so good at grabbing things out of the woods and decorating with it.  My sister, Judy, does that.  She lives out on a creek with lots of acreage and she can go out and gather natural "stuff" and make wonderful decorations especially for fall and Christmas.
The following pictures are her bathroom.  Not sure how I'd like the bathtub but it sure was cute.



A little more of the decorating.







It was so great because they were such purists.  Of course they had tv's and microwaves (although I didn't see a computer) but everything fit in to something old.  Something in side of me loves this kind of decorating.  I think I must have lived a previous life in the 1800's in the country.  I must have been happy because it makes me feel warm and fuzzy.

I'd love to be able to hide my microwave in a shabby old piece.

That made me smile so I guess I am like you...I think I would love to have my whole house decorated like that and what is amazing is the prices they get for items like that now..and think about all the houses that were tore down or fell down with jewels like that in them.

It certainly has a rustic charm to it. I love when electronics are hidden away but can't seem to get that going on in my own space. They have certainly embraced a simple, country way of life. I think we all could do with a bit more of the simple in our lives. :) Hope you have a great weekend. Tammy
