hi joan,since i'm the first to make a comment i think i get first dibs on your guest room. just think of the fun we could have together! the vignette is perfect as always.~janet
Joan, The stunning photograph captures the room beautifully. Your home and style is magazine worthy. And I'm after Janet!!! Trina
Are you kidding??? I'd looove to visit ;)Every vignette you show is always so pretty...seeing the whole thing all at once would probably just tip me right over.
Hi - Joan! You are going to have lots of guests at this rate. Love the mirrors. Did you find them locally? I've been looking for a Louis Philippe style mirror like your second one, but they seem hard to come by around here.Deborah
Hi Joan,As always, this little corner of your home is so pretty. You have such exquisite taste - I adore the gold one and the layering has such an elegant but yet casual feel...good for a guest room.Put me on the guest list!Sarah
This is lovely, Im sure every guest would feel special staying in your room, so yes I will book my visit in, I would also like to sit out on one of your gorgeous porches too. Your house is amazing!!!
My stars. This is beautiful. And you know how much I adore mirrors. Antique mirrors with worn surfaces....I need to confess. I covet your home. There. I said it. Confession always helps, doesn't it?
Hint taken - see you soon!!Millie ^_^
ok joan it looks like it's going to be a party, me, sarah, deborah and trina. we'll have fun helping trina plan a nursery for twins!~janet
I'm packing my bags. It's about a 35 hour trip from Australia, so see you in a couple of days! Chill some wine please, and we'll sit on one of the verandahs and watch the sun set..
Don't mind if I do!
Just beautiful! You are so talented! I can't wait to come visit! Love you!
I'm so excited y'all are all coming to visit!!Deborah- no, we didn't find them locally; the small one we found in Paris, and the gilt Louis we found at a antiques shop in Alabama!But... I did see one last weekend locally. I will try to get a photo of it for you this weekend!joan
Oh yes please - can't think of anything lovelier! Your guest rooms looks fabulous - the perfect place to spend a weekend. Leigh
Give me 15 minutes to pack...and I am there!Beautiful! Beautiful. Beautiful!
So, so lovely! Remembering Daddy especially today. He would have been so proud of all you and Dan have done to this house making it a home. Wouldn't he have loved it?
P.S. Isn't that your French mirror from the French lady at the flee market in France? Tell the story. It is such a wonderful touching story. I forgot some of it. All your pieces have a 'story' behind them. That's another thing that makes your treasures so special.
Linda- Soooooo glad to have you back!Susan- Missing Daddy today too....No, that mirror is larger and is in the living room! I will tell it's story though when I post pics. Sadly I can't find her photograph...
I think when I come east in the fall, I need to talk hubby into driving instead of flying. The antiquing here in the Dallas area has gotten to be way overpriced and there seems to be nothing new in the shops. I think I need to try a new route, hence the driving. Unfortunately, he doesn't enjoy driving or antiquing at all!
Hi Joan, your guestroom is beautiful! So warm and cosy! Perfect !Thank you for the Room 17 link in the side bar, I really appreciate it!
Given that you've got all these guests maybe we could meet down the road a piece and have a cocktail at the local restaurant lounge - husbands as well, of course! Love the chest of drawers but have eschewed all looking glasses for the duration.
Would love to come visit and stay in such a beautiful room....do you have an extra dog bed for Dixie?
that's your house!? oh my! beautiful! looks like its right out of a magazine!
Uh, yeah! I'm gonna sound like a whiney stocker! I am so jealous of your fabulous things! That lamp is amazing! I have these great stone parrots that would look great with it ... hmmm, did you have it made or find it somewhere? Might you share?
Welcome! Thank you for leaving a comment; you have no idea how much your comments inspire me to keep writing- I appreciate each and every one.
