I’ve been in a blogging slump lately. I just can’t find anything to talk about. (My husband would be shocked and glad to read that!) I was walking around our home (searching for a blog topic), when I realized that I love details. Our family room contains a lot of treasures that I love because of their details.
So, today I’m sharing some of those details with you. I can only hope you enjoy details as much as I do. I love the carved detailed back of our sofa,
and I love the apron and the sexy leg on the sofa.
The carved detail and shape of our dining table leg and foot appeal to me. I’ve heard of someone being a “leg man”, but people may start calling me a “leg girl”.
If they do, they could be right, because I love the barley twist legs on this drop-leaf table I purchased at an auction, and
the turned spindles on my Mother’s drop-leaf table, and
the pedestal, legs, and feet on Mother’s fold up table, and
the apron and legs on the game table/desk (it folds up to make a desk) that my husband gave me one Christmas.
In addition to legs, I love details on chairs, like this carved grape pattern on our dining chairs,
and the painted patterns on two chairs I purchased at auction, and
the carving on this Frenchy chair, purchased at an estate sale. (Oh Shoot! there are some more of my beloved legs!)
I love the detail of the tassel fringe on this pillow, and
the contrasting cording on this pillow, and
on this chair.
The painted roosters on our bar stools are another favorite detail.
As an addicted collector of a lot of
junk treasures, I love the detail of the door toppers I had added to this room.
Are you a detail person? Are you a leg person? Does anybody collect as much stuff as me? Forget I asked that last question! Thank you for coming to see my beloved legs ~ no, I actually hate MY legs, but I do love the legs on a lot of furniture pieces. laurie
