A Little Affirmation


I need a little affirmation, every now and then.

I am not one to worry that no one will like what I have used in my home.  
I really don't care - because I only use what I like
no matter what everyone else might think.  
And, regardless of what might be trendy.  

Back to the 'affirmation' part I mentioned, earlier...

I used this green buffalo check fabric in my bedroom ten years ago.  




My bedroom still looks like this, by the way.  I'm too busy -or maybe too lazy- to change it up.  A decade later, I still like our green-on-green-on-green bedroom.  The bed was my husband's great-grandmother's bed.  Fits perfectly in our 160 year old home, doesn't it?!   We are fortunate one of his aunts remembered she had it in storage! 

I felt the affirmative pat on the back when I saw this Southern Living Idea House bedroom earlier this summer...



So, my buffalo plaid was a good choice, primarily because I like it, but also because it can stand the test of time.

Enough of my self praise, 
here is my Painting of the Day....




Have a nice day!

Love buffalo check in any color, anytime!
Checkerboard pattern in your painting is a nice pop of interest, but my favorite part is the great shade of orange! Very striking against the green walls!

Laters,

I don't think you can ever go wrong with green or with buffalo checks. You are right, your room stands the test of time and will continue to do so. :)

Don't you just love it when a good plan comes together?
...not to mention, you're such a trend setter!
I love the blue and orange in this painting!

We toured the Idea House and liked the buffalo checks also.

Your green on green looks very
'today'...
