  10. A wonderful post and I love your pictures!

  11. Wow! Interesting place...I Love that glass top table with the tree branch base! Surprising, since I have fought against rustic decor for a while...and now am so drawn to it...which brings me to your the vintage fans...which I had several of those at one time...and got rid of them...I hate when that happens! Last but not least your headboard! Everyday when I leave work...I see pallets stacked out back...I have been thinking I need to grab those things...but just haven't...but you really have my mind thinking now!
    I appreciate every single person that stops by my blog...and THANK YOU for following! I like what I see, so as soon as I am done typing...I will be your newest follower!
