Hi everyone....l hope you all had a lovely weekend. Thanks so much for your lovely comments and feedback as to whether to paint the cabinet or not. l hope you enjoy today's post even though l was a bit pressed for time getting it done......You see my Mum had a fall a few weeks ago and it's taken until these past few days (and a hospital stay) to figure out that her continued pain was due to a ruptured kidney.....anyway she's home again and recovering ok :-)....though it's Drs orders to take it easy for a couple of weeks, sure....that'll happen he he:-))
A video of artist Greg Irvine's home in Melbourne was the inspiration for this post and l've included the video below. l hope you have the time to take a peek and enjoy it as well. Not only is he a wonderful artist, his home is so characterful and totally unique.....l especially love that it tells HIS story from the moment you enter the front door right through to his back garden.
....and even if his home isn't what we'd have ourselves, l think it shows so well how important it is to decorate with things we truly love and not to let our ideas be corrupted by time, money, fads or other such things that may sway us. Surely then our home will authentically reflect who we are and what we're about. Of course if we live with partners and/or other family members some compromise is inevitable but it's all about holding onto our true vision and staying the course.
l would say Greg's home has evolved over many years as indeed we do ourselves....We change, times, tastes and circumstances change.... Through all of this our homes are usually evolving right along with us.....what, why and how we choose to surround and immerse ourselves with and in tells the story of US....and that's the happiest, comfiest home in the world to live.
Pretty beaded and sequinned dress found at the opshop....not something to wear but as a future project.
Chipped and shabby chalk ware crinoline lady.
Lovely lot of chalk ware statues found on pinterest.

Thanks so much for stopping by, l hope your week is fantastic.
Til next time,
