dictatorship
this teapot is from england. it was a gift from my great aunt mary. it is the gifts of treasures like these that have dictated my style. i think? for as a long as i can remember, my grandmother has given me countless gifts like these. depression glass, dolls, family heirlooms, fabulous antique-y things. i adore it all. and i can't separate it. do i love it because they are things that belonged to her, that remind of her, because they are things that have meaning and make me feel loved when i see them? or is it my style? i guess it doesn't matter. but i was just wondering.

I understand what you are saying. Some of my things I am sure I love more because they belonged to people I loved. Other things I know I have chosen on my own because they look like things that belonged to people I loved. On the other hand, I don't (didn't) always love everything just because it comes from these special people. This is getting confusing to read. What I'm trying to say is that I think somewhere mixed in all of the collecting and inheriting and gift receiving you do develop a sense of you. It's just enhanced by your life experiences and those around you.

I'm looking for a paint color for my master bed and bath (not neccessarily same color for both) I was going back through your posts and making notes on all the paint colors you mentioned so when I'm shopping I can consider those colors. I saw one post where you mentioned painting your master bedroom gray/green. I was wondering what color it was and if you were happy with it. I am drawn to that color in photos in magazines. I also love the blues in your house but my youngest daughter's room is already soft blue so I don't want to repeat myself. I might do one of your blues in the bathroom though.
Thanks in advance. As always love your blog and your posts.

hi marcia. i have done lots of shades of blue, green, and gray lately. i think that even if you just change it slightly, you aren't repeating yourself. my bedroom is martha's graph paper - and i LOVE it!! good luck :)
