Vintage Friday #10~Finding Your Style

Today I decided to link up to
for her Vintage Friday #10~Finding your style!
This is the first time I've ever done one of these linky things, so I hope I do it right!
I'm not really sure what to call my style!
I always say Primitive Elegance!
I like all sorts of things!
To start with I love anything alabaster,
but I love to add something unusual like
the weird baby doll with the top of her head gone!
I like to add books anywhere I can,
I think they lend a vintage charm and they add height.
I love coral, sea fans, clocks, architectural salvage,
old stained up prints,
well you get the jest of what I'm trying to say!
We can't forget feathers and iron, with rust!
I hang shelves over my windows,
I can't bare to let unused space go to waste!

But lets not forget
all the chippy goodness of an old cupboard!
I can't resist anything with peely paint!
Oh, I almost forgot, to add mirrors to the list!

And tons of ironstone!
Believe it or not I've gotten rid of 75%
of the ironstone I used to own!
The blue in this cupboard is the only color in my house!
To sum it all up, I think I like to much stuff!
So you can decide what you think my style is called,
cause I don't really know!
Thanks for stopping by!

Whatever it is called...I LOVE it!! Beautiful...Beautiful....

I am a stuff girl too! I will clean out and "declutter" and then think...that looks so bare and awful and I put everything back! It makes me happy!

You have an awesome eye for detail...just stunning!

I'm going to call your style "TOT Style", I just love it all, all that you do!

Sharon @ Elizabeth & Co. said...

Not being locked in to one exact style is a good thing. It makes a home mch more interesting. But I know what you mean, sometimes I think I just like too much stuff too. I tell my husband that the solution is to have multiple houses!

Sue at Dollytub Cottage said...

I'd call your call your style "Time Worn Treasures"! SueXX

Courtney ~ French Country Cottage said...

Sharon said...

You did great for Vintage Friday, think I will have to do one next week also. I like you do not like empty space. My daughters always kid me that I cannot fit more into the house...but little do they know!!Loved your items you showed!

Laura @ 52 FLEA said...

Jane said...

You have a beautiful style and the pieces you have displayed are wonderful. I love the shelf over the window and how you have it arranged and the chippy cabinet with all the ironstone is perfection!!

Kathy @ Creative Home Expressions said...

I love your style and all your decorative elements! My daughter gave her style a name {I'd never heard of it and I do interior decorating!} Romantic Goth! She just loved a picture from Romantic Country magazine and that was how she referred to it. I guess sometimes you have to make up a name for your own style!

Sue said...

I like lots of different stuff and styles too. Guess that makes for easy shopping since I like it ALL!!! Great photos, thanks for posting them.

Take care, Sue

Ohh Theresa you are going to Tipton too! Lucky you! I so wish I could come ha well I always do but it's never realistic living on the other side of the big ocean. But I lost my track here, I wanted to tell you how beautiful I think your home is! All these architectural and chippy pieces you own are making it very special, whatever it's called, I just love it!!!
Have fun at Horton's! Oh I'm sure you will!

Lovin Your Style ~ I could live within those Pics.... Your Header is Beautiful~

Amy said...

Okay, you had me with the doll on display but then it just kept going and love it all. What a great home of treasured items all displayed so beautifully.
I love looking into others spaces to see how all of us may collect the same thing but it is always displayed so different from one home to the next
Thanks for sharing
Amy

Daphne Nicole & Lynda Cade said...

Hi Theresa, I love your style whatever it is. I too love alabaster. I have a pretty good collection of it, just can't resist buying it! I think a lot of us are alike in that we love so many different styles it's hard to pin point what our exact style is. I do know that my favorite is Shabby Chic, and anything French, but have many other loves too! Hope you have a wonderful week!!! hugs~~~ Daphne

Lauri Evans said...

I still can't believe you bought that doll, before I got to TX! NO FAIR!!! I think you should give it to me!

Carole said...

Hey Theresa,
Looked for your email but couldn't find it. Just wanted to give you a heads up that your link on Kathleens went to Faded Charm. I wondered when I clicked on whose it was? ....then I saw your post.
Just need to go back in and put your html in. I've messed up the linky thingy myself before!
