Eclectic Home…

My Dad had the little girl fishing in our home for many years… I added the little boy… Placing them on a small chair for a shelf in my kitchen…

Pears are in my wallpaper border… So this one I found in metal holds good smelling candles… In my kitchen…

This tulip picture is porcelain… I love little accents put  in odd spots… like a surprise! It is hung under another picture in my living room…

I fell in love with this old picture already framed… of a man going fishing… walking down a country road crossing over a bridge… Hangs in my living room…

This table was refinished by my husband… I liked it at first sight… Although covered with paint… I knew it would be great when Bobby followed my idea of how I wanted it… Just love it as a small coffee table…

I look around our home…

and see that if people want to…

They can make their home their own…in decorating…

Of course my love of the old, new, unique makes our home very eclectic…

I remember that word especially from when I went to the Interior Design Institute…

I knew that word described my taste…

Love for those special items that speak to me…

Finding it…

Knowing where it will be placed…

And something no one else would like until they see it fitting in with my decorating…

I really think this gift of placing things…

was due to my “have to” state…

Not wealthy…

Never really having the funds to just go out and pick an item without thought…

But, also realize this was a gift God had bestowed on me…

That… With Bobby’s abilities of repairing… Creating… Making things “work” when others would give up…

Another example of this great team we have made…

I picked up this picture at least three times… Deciding to get it or not… My desire and like overcame my need… And it now hangs in my hall..

This little blue cat is one of those little accent pieces that you just add for fun… In bathroom…

The crosses have been in my hall a long time… have never tired of them… and many have claimed them if I ever get tired of them… Not happening… but, the little girl playing music caught my eye even though old … I thought it was beautiful…

This Teapot just caught my eye… due to it being a design I remember from being a young child… ” Been Franklin” maybe…Another item I found… A Brown Glass Oil Lamp… Can come in quite useful with a power outage…

This Cookie Jar is clear glass… The better to see the goodies inside!

Enjoy making your home your own!

  1. Hi Marilyn,
    My home is Eclectic too and it just goes to show you we were meant to work together because we both are very creative. Your home is beautiful and I love the little window glass table that Bobby made for you. He’s also very handy and creative. I have always loved your creativity and I still have a box that you painted years ago with flowers on it. Always keep those creative juices flowing…Love & hugs, Andrea
