Living Arrangments...

There are many places I dream of living.... the city is not one of them...nasty, smelly place that it is (sorry to any city dwellers)
On the sea.....

In the mountains....

the sky is so expansive...and Blue! Brilliant Blue from one horizon to another...

the Smokey mountains....

we drove through these...oh about 5 or 6 years back. Yeah I could definitetly live there....

who doesn't like Southern Hospitality?

Texas...I know so many nice texans.....never been to the state yet...but I will !

But I have been to Nebraska! And Nebraska will always be special to me...
Nebraska to me is Summer laughs...warm nights...and farm week :)
Who doesn't like small town Nebraska?

But Wisconsin.....I willingly live in Wisconsin....
the Beauty....

A finished project...

So I moved into a new room.....more than a year ago. And I've kinda always wanted to make it mine...not my stuff in my sister's room. So about a month ago I asked Susie to use her artistic brain and help me figure out a 'theme' for my room and she did :) So we painted, and stored all the wrong colored nick-nacks in my closet, and bought a new comforter...and I finally hung the last pictures last week in honor of my best friend coming :)So I thought I'd post pictures!

Without further ado....
My absolutely GORGEOUS hope chest made by my Grandpa.
It was one of the inspiring pieces for the theme in my was my 'Victorian' influence.

My Books!! I love my books...I just got a copy of Our Mutual Friend by Charles Dickens. Guess what I've been reading??
So that was an influence Susie considered...
And there on the wall you see my 'Howdy' twisted out of barbed wire.
Susie classified it as my 'Ranch' influence.
This is my Jerusalem Wall.
My grandpa's the artist of the Jerusalem Skyline and the Wailing Wall.

I call this "My Family Tree" and Dad calls my wall color "Burnt Rose".

That's a cot in front of my bookself. It's waiting for my friend to come use it again.
See my night stand Kristi? The fabric and ribbon works great I think....

so that's it. my project. my room....I feel accomplished. I actually finished something artistic :)
