What do you like best of your home decoration?

Ok today our beautiful friend Marina is hosting a party, What do you like best of your home decoration? I know alot lot of you may have seen some of these images before, but I haven't had the chance to update them, so here goes.I love my little country kitchen, its quite small as I love collecting everything Shabby and chic and cottage looking, I also have a few Greek painting thought my home as my hubby being Greek, and I love the blue from the sky to the blue painted Greek domes on the top of their churches, so I've tryed to incorporate that, in the kitchen here with the blue crystal cut knobs on the kitchen dresser, the Moroccan glass wear, Greek painting on top of the dresser, to the blue planter on the Island bench, there is other little blue kitchen wear through out the kitchen but out of range,
moving into the living room blue hydrangeas are displayed while the two arm chairs have been covered in blue roses on a pale blue background fabric, to cover a ugly yet not in my colour pallet fabric, the 40 year old rug given to us by my hubby's father, has flecks of blue through the beautiful design, with blue throw cushions on the couch, I just love the way the sun pours through the french doors in the mid morning,

The antique blue door mirror hanging on the back wall is my favorite mirror, my husband brought this for me for my birthday a few years back, there is a story behind that mirror, my girlfriend owned and antique shop when we were living in Warrigul about a hour and 20 mins out of Melbourne, country side, I loved that mirror and I kept telling my hubby I really want it, he told me at the time it was to pricey, weeks went by still visiting my friend and one day I walked in there and saw a sold sticker on it, I said to my friend OMG you sold it she said what I said the mirror, so calm she was yeah I sold it yesterday, my heart was shatted, 3 weeks later it way birthday, hubby sent me home 2min walk, to pick-up some things for our shop, and I thought it was strange, we where living in a 50-60 year old inn with about 35 or more rooms, he sent me to a room that we only stored house hold boxes in it, the phone rang while I was there it was hubby did you find it he's saying to me, what I said back to him, well you can imagine my surprise when I opened the door, I screamed with excitement so load I nearly burst his ear drums, you sod I told him you let me believe all this time I missed out on this mirror.....so there's the little storey to that mirror.....lol Now to my little cute rose scented soap cupcakes that I make, I haven't made these for a while now, I use to sell these on eBay, I think I need to start making them again, to put them on my site.
and also my cottage rose scented soap cakes, hmmmmm why did I stop making these? I think I'm going to start making them again to sell, I use to sell lots, yes that's it I'm going to start them again.



Ok I hope you enjoyed visiting my What do you like best of your home decoration? thank-you for stopping by, and thank-you Marina for a great party, now it's time for me to come over to your home, see you soon make shaw you have tea and cakes I'm really hungry!




Hugs
