I still have trouble believing that we live here. I've been clipping pictures and ideas from magazines for years. I've been putting them into a decorating scrapbook. My dream book, I guess you could call it. It's fun to dream.

My husband Paul and I were out driving on our anniversary last April when we drove past this gorgeous house in a little village about one hour from where we lived. Paul jokingly asked if I'd like to see it and I said sure. We took the number of the realtor down and started to drive away only to notice that the realtor's office was just five doors down the street. So we went into the office and asked if we might see inside the house. Diane, our agent and new friend walked us down and as I stepped onto the front porch it was as though I'd found my way home. Once we stepped inside I was sold. The house just kept getting better and better. The owners were wonderful people and I am happy to say that we now have the pleasure of calling them friends. I have been decorating this house for years in my scrapbook. We still have to put our personal stamp on the house but we're in no hurry. This is a 'feel good' house.

I hope you will join me as I set forth into making the rest of my dream come true through decorating, painting, crafting, needle arts, crochet, gardening and collecting. Stop by often to check out my latest aquisitions from antique stores and curio shops. Enjoy some of my recipes and try out a few of the patterns and instructions I will be sharing in the coming months. Please post your comments and share your thoughts with me. I look forward to hearing from you.
