The simple pleasures of home shine brighter
when the spirit of God intertwines our hearts
with His gentle Joy.

Traditional. . .All The Way!

It has taken many years , 
after arriving On Crooked Creek
to leave my Country decor behind 
and get back to my Traditional roots.

Mind you, dear ones,
I have nothing against Country decor.
I embraced it whole heartily 
when I've lived in a small town on the East side of the Prairie!

Since then, "Mr. Ed" and I have acquired
numerous family heirlooms, 
displaying these Traditional pieces
in our home gives us such a great sense of comfort.
Which brings us to this vignette.

On Crooked Creek, change is constant! 

This lamp was originally in our Master Bedroom.(here)
But, when we added more masculine elements,
the lamps were switched 
and this lamp carried to the lower level
to make room for the Christmas decor.

A m a z i n g  
how moving o n e lamp can cause such a domino effect!!!
So~o~o without a  l e n g t h y  explanation,
let's just say it's been musical lamps. . .
and this lamp won, or was that lost???

While vacationing this Autumn,
"Mr. Ed" and I visited Relic Antique Mall in Springfield, Missouri!
I was quite smitten with a copper planter 
filled with faux English Ivy and a bird's nest.

Having a copper planter 
with a blue delft handle from our travels in Europe, 
I re~created the arrangement.

The sense of tranquility that flows over one
when you know you've come full circle 
with your home decor. . .priceless!!!

On Crooked Creek. . .
in the upper level Living Room. . .
I've gone Traditional. . .all the way!

Until next time. . .
