Mom and I talk everyday. I know what projects she’s working on and she knows every detail of mine. And although we talk everyday and live only two hours apart we don’t see each other very often.
But when we do… you better believe we make the most of it.
You see… we are mother and daughter but we are kind of like sisters .
I am the only girl of 5 kids. Mom lost her sister at a very young age. Out of 4 grandchildren Mom only has 1 granddaughter and she lives in Texas … frown face.
This weekend was like every other… we were SURROUNDED by boys…. again. But in all that masculine glory we always find a way to make things sweet and pretty.
Like Mom’s Victorian office. (read about her chair cover here)
I wish I could have taken every last one of you down to Harriman, Tn to see this amazing VINTAGE OFFICE space.
Mom’s whole house and mine for that matter are in complete Chaos. Except for this one room…. it’s perfection!
This space is Chaotically Creative Co.’s headquarters. … seriously it is. Our business is registered right there. And honestly a lot of business goes down in that very room. Like filling all of those Fix A Bra orders and working on the books … oh and blogging.
And all of those things take place a midst beautiful vintage and vintage inspired decor.
And then there are the vintage inspired pieces like Mom’s office furniture. I can’t tell you had absolutely AMAZING her refinishing job looks in person. It really looks like she bought this furniture just like this in a high end store.
And then we have this little number. MOM BUILT THIS!!! It’s very similar to her Cat Center but serves a different purpose. Obviously.
all who truly love home decor must take a moment of silence for this wall stencil…. (and a moment for the Mom’s patience.. it died somewhere in the middle of this project. )
Isn’t it lovely? Isn’t it beautiful?
This feather stencil creates so much movement and whimsy I could have cried.
but instead of crying I laughed…
because in a house full of boys there’s always something to laugh about.
