My tastes in home décor definitely lean more towards rustic, homespun, farmhouse than to lacy, frilly, Victorian.
Likewise, my taste in clothes has never been too lacy or frilly.
I lean more towards classic styles with a little country edge now and then.
Maybe it’s the time of year, but when it came time for me to do some long neglected clothes shopping,
I found myself craving creamy, flowy, lacy tops to wear over dress pants or jeans.
Similarly, when it came time to add a touch of Valentine’s to my décor,
I craved something softer and more subtle this year as well.
Soft, blush colored roses add a touch of romance.
(Gotta love Trader Joe’s and their 4.99 flowers!)
Of course I have some rustic touches too.
Felt hearts that I stuffed with a little cotton and stitched simply together with baker’s twine
hang from a branch over my shabby, gray window.
A larger felt heart embroidered with baker’s twine hangs on my drying rack photo gallery.
I’m feeling ready for Valentine’s Day…are you?
