Wow, beautifuk glimpses of your home Koralee - i love that ladder with floral fabrics - such a great idea! Fabrics are so inspiring. Have a great weekend - with lots of couch-time ;)

Soooo pretty! I love the use of the ladder for storing your vintage tablecloths. Bulbs in a china bowl is such a sweet way to provide year-round blooms. A few years ago a friend gave me a the most beautiful gift: a bowl of forced paperwhites. I've grown the tiny jonquils too.

Love, love, Love the ladder for the vintage tablecloth idea. I may have to steal that one. But, better yet, how's about I go and steal that couch potato one. I was up way too late last night stitchn' the last of my rainbow.

Libbie said...

You know I love these peeks! Those windows!!! I am crazy about them! & the pretty linens! So cool on that ladder! I still only have the linens I got from my wedding pretty much...NEED to invest!!! :) That's embarrassing! I keep them hidden away so no one can see them :) Hope you enjoyed that couch! I am enjoying mine now! (took a while to get that last babe out & then I practically ran to the couch! :)

pollydove said...

Love, love the ladder! I think you tease too much, I want a real tour!

Kitty M said...

Koralee I am in LOVE with your turquoise lamp! You have also given me a lovely idea with the photo of the little teacup. My friend has just given me a lovely little tea cup and saucer for my birthday, so I am going to plant a hyacinth bulb in it now ready for the spring!

**CREATIVE CARMELINA** said...

Okay, now I too want a ladder in my home.....I could display all of my handmade crocheted blankets and doilies!

Thanks Koralee....
