Welcome to my blog.  So glad you stopped by.  My name is Theresa and I am so excited to be a part of Vicki's 2 bags full " Grow your blog party".  Check out the party by clicking the highlighted link and surf through almost 600 wonderful blogs.
 My passion is interior decorating.  I have decorated homes for friends, family and neighbors.  I have always had a desire to create cozy spaces in every room of a house.  I like to think outside the box.  It is my mission to give every reader of my blog ideas that can inspire you to not be afraid to try something new with colors, patterns, furniture arrangement, and re purpose old pieces and incorporate them into your home.
     My husband and I are also renovating an old 160 year old flour mill into our home.  I'll show updates on our mill as they come about.  We have also renovated an old railroad depot into our home that we currently live in until the mill is finished.
     My hubby and I also like to create useful pieces from odds and ends junk to something useful.  We have 2 wonderful dogs, a 2 year old silver lab and a 6 month old Golden retriever.  We have 4 sons all grown up now.  6 grandchildren that are the best!
     I hope that you will follow us on our journey as we create a home from an old dilapidated flour mill.  I also tend to rearrange and decorate my home often.  You just never know what I may post that has to do with my home, my life, or my style!  So stick around.  Look forward to making new friends!

     Today I have been redecorating my bedroom.  I purchased a new duvet and shams from the Pottery Barn.  If you don't know yet, it's one of my favorite shops!  And I also love old textiles expecially old ticking material.  I have this large old ticking mattress cover that I had purchased a while back from an antique store in my area that I think I will make a sham or two out of for the bedding.  I think it goes nicely.  As you will see in the pictures, I placed the old ticking material over my white shams to see if it will work....and I believe it will work fine.

     I am a huge fan of blues and whites together.  The duvet and shams material are sort of like a linen.  Does tend to wrinkle a bit.  Hope you like it.  Now I think I'm going to take a nap in my new bedding.
