We all have different ways of being stylish and fashionable. I was looking at various homes and the many decor; and the word that stood out to me was ECLECTIC. The word eclectic defined is: not following any one system, something made up from different sources.  Eclectisim has been on the rise lately and becoming very popular. I would consider my home eclectic my furniture does not match-- am I wrong? No that is my style -  and just me being different. Does everyone like the norm...humm? Of course their are different styles; like contemporary, modern, country and traditional those are still great ways to create a home.

In today's design there are ways to join the most unlikely elements in a way that makes them work together to create a very unique space. So explore the stores be creative have fun with your home. When decorating choose what you love, buy what you can afford and follow your own style rather than what is the latest. Over time you will have a beautiful masterpiece of a home that is a true reflection of who you are.

If you ask me ask me my decorating style I would say; I have a eclectic style, meaning I like a little bit of this, and a little bit of that.  "etre bien"  means be well in French

What happen to Television?

Was laying in my bed after waking from a four hour nap after church, on this beautiful day the Lord has made....Yes four hours I was tired! Iam watching the TV LAND awards and was just touched on all the old shows that I would watch all the time.  The Cosby Show, Facts of Life, Family ties, Welcome back Kotter, Good Times, television is just not the same. When we watched TV back in the 80's and 90's their was shows that displayed family, friendship, love, and unity. Some of these shows had teaching moments. Kids and teens today between the ages of 8 to 18 years spend nearly 4 hours a day in front of a TV screen and almost 2 additional hours on the computer (outside of schoolwork) and playing video games. Now I see their are making a new show about DIVORCE and the reason the couple is divorcing is because the husband came out of the closet. Has anybody watched the show Glee let's not even go their about those children....Hello what's going on. Is this what are children are propelled to watch. I am just saying what happen their is nothing good on TV that displays family anymore. The new families have to many issues and just to much going on. Speak to me people I would love to hear from you. "Slán go fóill"- means Goodbye for now in Irish Gaelic.
