Melrose Vintage... So Romantic

When I want a heavy dose of the Romantic I head for MELROSE VINTAGE and it never fails to deliver all that inspires a Romantic vision in decorating Styles.  From the moment you step up to the front door you are drawn into another World, as even the entryway is decorated lavishly.  Right away there was this chippy Green oversized Architectural Salvage Trim Mirror that mezmerized me, it looked as though it could have come out of an old West Saloon... it would overwhelm any tiny room in this ole' House, but for anyone with a grand sized room, this would be the anchor piece of all anchor pieces! *swooning*  And the Vintage Bottles with fabulous Altered Art Crystal Cross Stoppers... OMG... I want them ALL!  *Smiles*  Okay, well, if I can't have them all, at the very least the two on the right-hand side for now *wink*, I'm practically hearing Heavenly Music playing in my head as I swoon over them... I shouldda been born rich because my tastes are definitely extravagant! *LOL*  When I get a Rush while seeing something for the first time you can be sure it's expensive, even before you take a peek at the price tag! *wink*  Champagne taste on Beer drinkers money, that's me.  But if something stays on my Heart and mind peeps, I'll find a way... after all, don't you always if you want something badly enough?  Any time I hear someone lament that they can't have or do something I always wonder how badly they actually want it? Because it has been my observation and experience that if you're on fire for something, burning with Passion about it... anything, whatever lights YOUR Fire... you'll do whatever it takes to make it your reality... and if not, then the Passion for it was not really there at a level that made it worth sacrificing and striving for.  So my Word for you this day would be... direct your Passion into an intense focus upon it... aim for it... envision yourself already with it in your grasp... do the work to head in that direction, even if it's baby steps towards it... speak it... feel it... posses and own it in your imagination first... have great expectations and expect the very best outcome... and don't be at all surprised when it becomes not just your Vision or Dream... but your Reality... Dawn... The Bohemian 

I'm linking up with Debra over at COMMON GROUND for VINTAGE INSPIRATION FRIDAY! Come on over and see what is inspiring all the peeps...

  1. That is definitely my kind of store!! Just look at that white armoire....Mine could look like that if anyone would let me paint it! Lol! Eye candy galore Dawn! Thanks for sharing it. Vanna

  2. No Dawn,I just WANT to paint them I never actually have!! LOl! My husband can't stand the thought...and he always talks me out of it!! Well I purchased the french armoire in my guest room specifically TO paint!And as ususal my hubbs said nooooooo don't! So I told him I'd take a poll on my blog and I'd abide by the decision...Of course I just KNEW everyone would tell me to go ahead....but again nooooo. They said (For the most part) leave it alone. That'll teach me to be cocky. I think I know what people want to see, but I really have zero clue! *Le Sigh* fer sure! Vanna
