Welcome to MY STUFF ROOM - a space for my collection of STUFF ... STUFF GALORE ... GALORE-IOUS STUFF! ... INSPIRING STUFF I find online, and maybe even some STUFF I create myself. It's all Stuff that makes for a Creatively Galore-ious Day! ...Thanks to all who share their talents! I love to see it ... it truly inspires.
While cleaning my files I found a folder full of fun and silly reasons to make your day a special day ... things to celebrate ... every day ... any day. I remember having some fun with these years ago, using some of these ideas for a while before forgetting about them. I've found a few more and thought they'd be a fun addition to the blog. Some of these are quite ridiculous, but several are great for family fun, for preschool fun, for party fun, or just for fun!

There is so much I like about this rustic look - the color, the old swing, the pathway and edging, the wood post things (what are those called anyway?), the trees, and even the dryness of it all because that would mean I'd be able to grow things in my garden without worrying about watering them. ;)
Maybe we could walk thru a lovely gate door like this, from Houzz, into a beautiful garden ...
Maybe we could find a beautiful mossy chair (from google) in the garden behind that door above
This first one would work great to the left of my sink.
This next photo is just like my pie safe in my kitchen, only my pie safe is not this awesome yellow ... yet. It is a dark stain, but it sure looks good in yellow doesn't it. My pie safe has wire fronts instead of glass, but I could easily change that too. This unit would work nicely in the area where I take out the existing towel cupboard.
I love the color of this next unit, though it's not the size I need for my bathroom. The glass doors are appealing to me here too.
I am trying to do this bathroom make-over with as little cost as possible. So, I'm searching my house for things I already have and can use there. That is tricky in itself, because if I have a piece of furniture in my house it is filled with something, so what will I do with the things that are in it if I move it somewhere else? And, what will I put in it's place? What will be my least expensive move and change?
It's going to be interesting!
I'm lovin' the ideas we're having!
I need to go do some window shopping ..., and maybe even purchase a thing or two.
decor8 shows these two rooms - the room on the left has the lavender walls and the blue rug - lavender and blue ..., that appeals to me.
I don't care for the bright yellow in this next picture, but I like the other two colors together.
Here is a lovely lavender wall from Apartment Therapy I like the additional colors here - though the brown surprises me. I also need a bit more dusty or distressed green for the look I'm hoping to create.
This next room is a lovely combo from homedit. I almost need to redo a bedroom to match this look. We love it! We just don't have a room that would look as lovely as this.
I like the back wall looking a bit beige - it seems to help calm the colors in the room and make it warm and inviting. The color of the wall behind the door helps me see how a green piece of furniture would look against the wall, and the blue-ish throw on the chaise can help give an idea of a blue piece of furniture with this color combo. The dark purple color in the pillows adds a lovely touch too. The whites are a must!
Though it is too dark for what I am wanting, I like this wall with the texture or aged look, and the combination of colors from other things create a rustic and interesting look.
My Interior Inspirations shares this lavender room. This lavender seems a little light, and the green luv seat seems a little dark, but I like the green wooden chairs, and of course, the white furniture.
I love this shower curtain from Zillow and the deeper purple frame on the mirror is awesome.
A lavender or purple and green, and blue from The Decorologist This includes black, but I think I like white a bit better for our smaller room.
While we are at it, look at this color combo (from the above site)
