This photo was taken the same evening as the one in my TAAFOMFT favorite room layout. I love to make aprons (and wear them) so I found a wooden peg rack at the thrift store, painted it, and Dan hung it for me to display some of my aprons - I change them for the seasons. This layout (sorry for the glare on the photo) is done totally in LilyBee papers (that I won from Scrapjacked) but I used an old doily as a mask and glimmer misted the background and then stamped with an old stamp I had. I have been so inspired by Jeanet's layouts lately at TAAFOMFT - she is so totally talented with the misting and stamping!!!! - and I wanted to try my hand with supplies I had on hand (until yesterday afternoon I had only a very few stamps but I will tell you why I now have more in the next posting).
Since we are doing what is your favorite room at TAAFOMFT, I thought I would post some homey poems and quotations for the next week or so and here is the first one:
"His house was perfect, whether you liked food, or sleep, or work, or story-telling, or singing, or just sitting and thinking best, or a pleasant mixture of them all."
