Old Money

Old Money

I don't come from money.  But when I was creating a look for my new home, I wanted a personal, collected look, an inherited look, old money, granny chic.  I have some lovely things from my Mother, my husband's family, my Grandparents and a beloved Aunt.  I also have many things from garage sales and antique stores.  Other people's stories.  But to pull it together, I needed a few key pieces like the slipcovered chairs with pleated skirt, round tables, needlepoint and roses.  Always roses.  It had to be a gentle story, told slowly, and so like everything, it is a work in progress.  Here is a glimpse of the past six months of story telling.  Maybe you'll be inspired to get your Granny panties on.  It's a comfortable, comforting way to live.
