Still Reeling...

Have you ever taken in so much through your senses that your whole system feels like it's on overload?  It happens to me fairly often, this week being no exception.  My mind is still reeling a bit from the sights and sounds of my trip to Round Top.  Maybe writing about it will help me calm me down!

I want to tell you about an amazing room we happened upon toward the end of our journey.  It is still calling my name.  In the entry was this beautiful potter's shed, filled with vintage tools,  miscellaneous garden items, and earthy accents.   There was even a raised flower bed installed in the middle of the room.

Now, here's the really great part.  This potter's shed also contained a totally scrumptious bedroom...beautiful linens, fine furniture, and all.  It was all I could do not to to squeal in delight.  (Okay, well maybe I did squeal just a little.)  My heart definitely skipped a beat.

Imagine...not only was every detail of this setting just gorgeous, the huge overhead doors on either side of the building were wide open and a fresh morning breeze was blowing across it all.  I so wanted to curl up and take a nap, but I was afraid the three bears might come home and chase Goldilocks out of town!

The blending of the two environments was what made the room so exquisite.  Both the bedroom and the shed were delightful on their own, but the two intermingled...that eclectic mix of earthiness and refinement...was breathtaking.  Did you notice the birdbath with the mirror top next to the bed?  How about the sophisticated little silver containers on the mirror or the beautiful china and jadite dishes nestled in the pile of clay pots?  Pure genius...

Oh, maybe this will be the year I build the outdoor room I always wanted.
