DECORATING ~ ***A Love Affair with Shelves***

(warning...lotsa pictures)

Decorating was a small burning Passion of mine
as a new bride in a new home in 1986.
  But it really took a hold when
19 years ago, hubby and I moved to Michigan and
 purchased our Lovely Colonial *dream* home. 
It was bigger
than I had ever hoped a home I lived in would be.
We had plans of filling it up with children, but
the Lord had other plans.
Through the years my home has morphed
and seen many styles and changes but
I do believe now it is a true reflection of
who I am and who I am becoming.
Does it all go...well probably not like those
who are true decorators would tell you how
to decorate.  I decorate with WHAT I love
and that is what make me happy.
I  loved sharing my home with others and
hope that you will feel right at home too
as I show you my *Shelf  Love*.
It all began a few weeks ago...
As I was wandering around my home I
began to see a pattern of decor...
Shelves. 
Everywhere, every shape and every size.
Being a Visual personal who LOVES
eye candy, I guess it is only natural that
I have leaned towards putting things
out where I can see them...lots and lotsa things. 
Some who visit my home think I have
too much clutter...but to me, I like to think I
have a collection of
*Organized Pretties*.
Would you care to see?

Thanks again for stopping by.
Do you decorate with shelves?
Did you get any new ideas?
I hope I have inspired to you
shelve up your life!

Be Blessed,
Lorena

Oh my!! what a beautiful home you have. So soft and "girly" with so many pretty collectibles. Shelves?? My husband is "anti" hanging anything at all on the walls, except some fine art or prints. Took me 42 years of marriage to get a shelf in my craft room for my button jars...lol!
Lovely post.
Kind Regards
Judith

Lorena,
I adore all of your shelves! I even see we have some of the same shelves!!
But I think you may have me beat in how many you have! All of them look lovely with all your beautiful displays on them!

Hugs,
Deb

Hi Lorena!

Oh how I love your home! It's always so welcoming and beautiful. Your studio is the icing on the cake for me and always has been!!

I just wanted to let you know that I am sharing the blog of Marie @ Dolls by Marie Antionette. I had to close my blog for a bit due to some attacks of hatred on my site (not worth mentioning) and of course when one door closes God opens another for us. Marie is a dear friend of mine and needs help writing posts due to health issues and invited me to share her blog. What fun we've been having! I'm using the name "Edie" on her blog but it's really me!! Come visit when you have time, I've missed seeing what you're up to.

Big hugs & blessings,
"Edie" (Sherry of Edie Marie's Attic)
