Bring the ocean in!

i am crazy about this look i found at Brooke's blog Velvet and Linen
notice the ever-so-popular monochromatic background with
green plants and water portraits added! 
fresh and fun, I think.  
while Brooke does have them for sale  ...
i can see how we might could take these photos ourselves
and have them printed on canvas. 
can't you? 
i'm thinking this room probably has 12 ft. ceilings, 
which adds to the amazing feel of the room. 
i love the juxtapostion of the chandelier in  
a room which has many rustic touches. 

those little blue insulators... Ha! i've always hated them 
in flea markets...now i'm looking at them in a different light!
in this setting they are really little artsy things. 
cute with the old books. 
i've also hated milk glass over the years
and i can't believe all the places i see it now!
you can pick it up for quarters at yard sales. 
vases especially. 
it seems almost anything in a grouping or 
collection looks great! 
i've always wanted a small empty cottage to play with and 
truly decorate on a dime. 
i feel certain i could do it! 
i guess we all could?!

more cake pops/balls coming out of my kitchen today!
i have ingredients for the lemon ones and german chocolate...
several elderlies are coming today for
a sit and a visit and some cake.
wish me luck ;)
