Fear of Commitment?

The fear of commitment had a different meaning when I was single.  It referred to relationships.  Now that I'm married and own a home, this term refers to something completely different...decorating style!
 I love shabby chic... (my latest office re-do)
 but, I also love whimsy (my desk accessories.)
I love cottage (my printer cover, file cabinet and bulletin board.)
 but, I also love quirky (Halloween decor on our mantel.)
I love French (our front door.)
My rental space at Very Vintage.
but, I also love kitschy (1950's ceramic mermaid and fish plaques)
I also love white on white and more white (this isn't my bedroom, but a mom can dream!  See more of this Victorian cottage here.)
 but, I also love color, mostly PINK (these make me smile!)
I love rustic (old crib I bought and regret selling!)
Rustic ceiling tin we installed under our mantel.
I love new, but I also love vintage (new Eiffel Towel applique on old window, old scale and reproduction clock made to look like an old scale.)
Our entire home is an eclectic mix of all decorating styles!  Is it the fear of commitment or the love of everything that inspires me?  Yes, maybe both!

Are We Having Fun Yet?

Kids are home for the summer.

 Moms, are we having fun yet?  
If you're like me, you're torn between having fun with the kids 
 and creating
or cleaning out a closet
One morning I saw our cat, Rex, lounging in the perfect box.  
 The look on Rex's face captured my mood (tired.) 
 Later, I noticed the printing on the box which made me laugh.  
If only we could find FUN (and a little weirdness) in a box!
