Up Close and Personal

I love seeing shots of big fancy pretty rooms but it's often the details that really get me. I'm a very meticulous soul and I like everything to be arranged just so. It's not that I'm anal or anything, I like to call it "being particular". I often create little vignettes around my house on the weekends and change them out frequently. It's a luxury I didn't enjoy in an apartment for sure. Now it's time to stop an appreciate the little things...


After seeing this picture I'm now searching for an antique rotary phone. I have no landline mind you, I just want the phone because it's pretty!


















At work we like to call this "creating a moment". We create moments like there's no tomorrow!

I hope everyone is having a wonderful first half of the week!

So pretty! I love little vignettes, and I like that term, "creating a moment." Lovely! Oh, I so want an old-fashioned rotary phone! XO!

i also dig the blue plates on the orange wall, but more so, i LOVE the wire basket mounted to the wall with the little bird on it.

I was in a funky toy store the other day and found something I would totally buy for you if I had a job or extra cashflow or whatever: a reproduction book of vintage/antique ballerina paper dolls. with scenery and costumes and the likes. totally frame worthy, or perfect for laying about in a little...um, created moment.

I am exactly like you...I love to take in the details, and I really love to "putter" around my own home arranging and rearranging...love that memo pad in the first image...wonder where its from?
