Personalized Touches for Your Home


Those of you who have read my blog for a long time know that I march to
my own drum beat and don't follow trends.  If I like something, if it
resonates with me, that's what I gravitate to, and that is what I do.
My home reflects my personality.  You won't find any signs that say
"Gather", etc.  There is nothing wrong with them, but they just don't 
appeal to me.  When I see something I truly love, I have a little chat
with myself.  Do I need it (most likely no).  Does it have a practical
function (probably not).  Is everyone in the "hood" doing this or using 
this?  Well the answer to that one is NO!  I don't do anything that others
are doing just to fit in.  

Here is a little stool I recently purchased from Nancy and her fabuous
transferware shop.   Here is a link if you would like to browse:


When I saw it I ran through my usual check list.  The one overriding
response was "I love it!"  The needlepoint top is so attractive and in 
excellent condition.  The wicker base really adds to it's charm.  In
other words it was screaming "Order Me Please!"

So, here it is in our family room and of course I loved it right away.
The final affirmation came from my hubby who liked it and thought
it was a perfect addition.  I didn't really need his approval, but it sure
was great to receive!



Here we have another expression of my personality.  At the far end of our
family area, rests a cozy seating area we lovingly refer to as our "library".
You will often find me in the evening lounging in one of the leather 
chairs, reading a book, and seeing Bentley cuddled up next to me.  Well one
day I decided it would be magical to have a miniature "library" within the 
big one.  I wanted it to have the same look as the big one, and I wanted it
to look like a "little person" could be enjoying the space.  I already had the
globe and the lamp and phone.  Now I just needed to find the perfect chair.
This is a Reutter "leather" wing back chair.  It's detailing is perfect.  I ordered
 three vintage looking books from a woman in Lithuania, and the whole
spot just came alive. 

My style suits me and reflects the little girl soul who lives within the adult
I have become.  I believe our homes can be far more than just for shelter and
efficiency.  They can remind us of who we are and shows others just
how unique and special we can be.

Big Texas Hugs,
Susan and Bentley
