Romantic Country Party!

Pin It Now!

I'm joining in on Karla's Party (click here). What I love about my home....



I love that even though I live in a rental apartment that I have made it my own by adding things I love. I love that I have things that my dad has made for me over the years. I love that when I look at some of my things, they bring up memories of walking through the flea market with my mom. (my mom is still alive just not able to get out very often now because of her health)
I love that I have decorated my home on a budget. It has forced me to be creative!
I love that I was able to find an apartment with a little bit of a backyard!


I love my bedroom. This furniture was in my family since I was a kid and with some white paint I have given it a new life!



So go visit Karla and take a peek into some beautiful Romantic Country Homes! This is my second post today so scroll down to see the lovely gift that Fifi sent me....

Hope you had a wonderful birthday and thanks for rating my Rate my space, I had no idea what I was doing loading it on (1st time) I left a comment by mistake for my own space, woops, I was only trying to change my user name as it's a number at the moment! Eventually I should understand the workings??
