Wow, nice collection, I do the same thing, I love magazines they really inspire! Loved the photos:) hugs, Kim


Ohhh Chris...So very pretty pics! But girly...Your home is just as gorgeous as those pics!! I can just imagine how beautiful...relaxing...& shabby chic it is:)
Hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving & lets see pics of your home decorated for Christmas sweets!!!!!


Hi Chris ~ loved this post and I found it very interesting that a lot of your favorite pics are a lot of my favorite pics from magazines. We must have all the same issues! Hope you are well! I am doing my Christmas decorating tonight! (*_*) ~Stacy~


I love the white linen bed and aproned maid pic the best! Pretty post Chris. The mantel on the opening page of your site is stunning! You've been a very busy girl!

I do the same thing too. I have some pix in my file from 20+ years ago and there is still something that attracts me to them; the classic style I guess. I go thru them every few months or so and daydream about them and then put them away for another rainy day.



Seems this is a common thread we all share... I too do the same... ideas for the home... ideas for inspiration... I though have kept a lot of magazines... which I have been going through and hard as it may seem letting some of them go... I imagine if I counted the amount of money I spent on magazines I could be somewhere close to a millionaire !!

Loved the photo on your home page of the mantel and your pics of your home... oh my ... beautiful!!

I do hope that cold goes away and you get to feeling better... get some rest... cx soup .... tough being laid up with a cold on top of the knee...




What lovely pictures ~thanks for sharing them :)
And thank-you, Chris, for the thoughtful and kind words you left on my blog over the loss of our puppy .
Have a Happy Day :)

What wonderful inspirational photos! I have wanted to have slip covers made for my sofa, chair and ottoman, but don't know where to go. I have called upholstery companies in my phone book but they just upholster and don't make slip covers. Do you have any suggestions?



Sorry I couldn't find your personal e-mail address; I thought you would like to know that my MIL passed away this morning. It is such a relief that she went without too much suffering. Just last week she was still in her own home living alone and now she is at peace and with Tony once again.

Hi dear Tutts....I hope that your knee is doing better:-). I share that love of old magazines and have my collections of the OLD Victoria and Country Living~dating back probably 15 years! Good design is so timeless....such as yours my friend:-) ~XO~Fufu


LOVE all the great pictures. If only money wasn't so hard to come by!:-)

Chris, I'm right there with you and everyone else.....I save lots of clippings from my favorite magazines, as well. My poor husband doesn't understand it but I guess he's gotten used to it. I'm curious as to where you get your slipcovers?? Do you have them made when you buy your furniture or do you have someone (you?) make them for you? I bought a slipcovered couch a couple of years ago and the slipcover shrunk!! Talk about a struggle getting it back on the couch!! I consider that my weekly workout!
I, however, have to wash mine more frequently since we have 5 "adorable" dogs living in the house!! Can't wait to see
pictures of your home decorated for the holidays! Becky
