A Lotta Love-Donating A Room

 I want to share this with all-it really warms your heart to see how much decorating can really make a very dismal area home for these residents. A friend in North Carolina sent this to me:
Thought you would enjoy seeing what’s happening at the local Women and Children’s shelter here.  Such a great idea.  When the residents are able to leave they get to take their new decor stuff with them so the organization is continually seeking volunteers in the community to redo rooms for new residents.  The service league I belong to helped a few years ago back when it all began two years ago but I had not seen the complete transformation.  Anyway – given your line of work I thought this video that shows the power of making a place “home” would really warm your heart.

Judy’s House in Harwich Port

I just visited a friend in HarwichPort who is not a professional decorator but definitely should be! Her choice of fabrics,art work and little details amount to a very warm,beautiful and welcoming home. She tends to find fabrics at Zimman’s and is constantly looking for items on sale-I love her creativity and old Yankee ingenuity. She has a great eye for putting it all together. She also is lucky enough to have inherited many beautiful pieces of furniture and artwork and has used them perfectly as well.

Pictured below is her Living Room:

It’s all about the attention to detail……..
