For quite a while now I have been playing with the idea of a few decorating changes...I first saw this faded look in one of the Judy Condon books and since then have been collecting pics from everywhere and putting them in a little file..Even found some in an old 2006 County Sampler..Some of my favourtie blogs have this calm white look and I just love it..*White Wednesday* is a great place for inspiration and also *Time Worn Interiors* and *The Old Painted Cottage*..the thing is though I do love my prim bits too so have tried to incorporate them in with this look...I have been re-painting my painted furniture and really distressing it so it looks chipped and battered or for a better phrase well loved... I am pleased with the results and now have my bedroom and little sitting room finished..Just need to continue throught the rest of the house which all takes time..But now I have started..I do hope you enjoy my vignettes and my new updated home pics..

Until next time keep warm and safe..*~*Blessings*~*

Ahh, Angi I love it! You're on your way. What you've done so far is awesome. I love that shabby white look too. I can see a white cover on your sofa and ottoman too.

a wonderful combination of prim and faded prim. I love it. I do like the white as much as the black but I really love mustards, reds and colonial blues. I consider my style 'eclectic' because I have some of it all!

HI Angi!
Just found your blog glad! I love the direction your decorating is going. I have always loved the chippy, faded, tattered look!
Keep up the great work!

Hi Angi, I just became a follower, but I have always loved your patterns. I have just started the black seed doll. Can't wait to get her finished. I started a blog last fall and have met so many nice and interesting people who love primitives. Thanks for sharing your pictures, they are really nice. I enjoyed looking at them, always looking for great ideas. If you have time sometime stop by my blog for a visit. Vicky
