A great part of waking up...
Is freshly ground coffee brewed just perfectly, two of my favorite magazines and the sound of quiet (now that everyone is gone to school and work). What a way to start the day! I hope everyone has a fantastic Friday.
Hi! I'm Rechelle. Mommy and Stepmom to my blended brood. As you can imagine there is never a dull or quiet moment in our home. And it's a rather "cozy" home at that, one that seems even "cozier" when we're all together at the same time! I love anything with a history. My home is filled with treasures that have been handed down through generations, or that I've found in thrift stores & antique malls. I love all kinds of music, classic movies & Gene Kelly. Some of my favorite things are vintage tablecloths, lace, beadboard, toile, fine china, tea sets, old homes- be they craftsman, victorian or farmhouses-, decorating & antiques. Living in a cookie cutter house has had it's decorating challenges but my husband and I have loved adding character and making it a "home". We've still many projects to embark upon, but one day... Welcome to my blog, happy reading and please comment! I'd love to get to know you better and may we become fast friends. Enjoy your day and may it be great!
