This week I'm taking another trip down memory lane. I spent most Summer's as a kid in Southern Illinois at my Grandma Smith's house. Next door to her house was my Great Grandma's house. My Great Grandmother passed away when I was a baby and her house was in disrepair my entire life until it eventually had to be torn down. Growing up this house was strictly off limits for safety reasons but my cousin and I had vivid imaginations and dreamed up many haunted house tales. We dared each other often to break the rules and go into the "haunted house". Through my adrenaline filled visits into this house I have remember snippets of the house. One thing I remember were the crystal door knobs on each door. Unfortunately the door knobs were not saved but I did find some at an auction and purchased them. When I visited my Grandma last month I brought along my door knobs and photographed them on my favorite old chair. There is a lot of beauty in those door knobs and in the wear of that chair and they really compliment each other. I hope you enjoy my newest creation "Shabby Chic"
I'm also participating in the 3rd Annual Where Bloggers Create Party. I posted about my studio space last week. But please click here if you would like to read about my creative space.
