That Little Place We Call Home

I was reading somewhere about decorating with small quilts, and only then did it occur to me that I seldom share pics of my home. There's nothing particularly impressive about the tiny little house that we call Home and maybe that's why I never think that anyone would really care to see it, but because I LOVE seeing other people's homes (is that wrong of me???Does that make me nosey? Oh dear, I think it does...LOL!), and because I am asked quite frequently, "But what do you do with all those little quilts?", I thought I'd start a series that due to the size of my home, will last about 1.2 posts, hahaha! (OK, maybe three posts...) I'll call it the Home Show!
This is a pic of one of the walls in the living room, this pic was taken 04/25/2010, and yes, those are Fall quilts, and a bunny quilt living in perfect harmony in my home.
I love Fall! ... and I love Bunnies too. So there you have it... your first glimpse into that little place we call home. B=)

I would never have thought of that idea. It is so neat with the quilts behind the shelves like that!

Thanks for sharing.

Sue said...

You are so clever placing the little quilts like that. It's like discovering a treasure when you look beyond what's on the shelf.

I love the wall timbers, was it like that, or did you build it in? It looks so nice with all the little quilts and your prims on the shelves, love it.

I love it and I want to see more. Does that make me nosey too?

Love those minis, Brenda. I'm walking down that same road at the moment.

I have a really small house too, but the quilts go up on the wall anyhow! You have a wonderful collage of all the things you love. I love fall colors so much that I have one room dedicated to those colors! Lynne

A wall of small shelves, with mini quilts, as their backgrounds!

I LOVE your sense of style, too... BTW!
