Happy Birthday Jackie!!!
Yes our favorite HOME girl's birthday is today! Look Jackie I even baked you a cake for the occasion!
Sorry for all the candles:)))
Oh good!!!! I see you've dressed up in your finest party dress. That's good.... since this is a surprise party.
Isn't she just so stylish and cute????
Here we are in Jackie's home. Go ahead and have a seat!!! Comfy isn't it??? She just had these chairs redone with this lovely printed linen. Looks smashing with the pillow she won in a giveaway recently.
Don't be too jealous but this is her fireplace mantel.
I know, I thought the same thing. Isn't it just so amazing? I would never get sick of looking at it. The mirrored shelf alone is TDF.
She just redecorated some of her rooms and added more soft colors in gray and white.
She loves the look of the Scandinavian blogs which I do too.
I think looking at those blogs was how she first discovered them.
Do you remember the first one you visited?
I'm sure you do.
She's also mad for silver and especially mercury glass.
I think it's the balance of shiny and rough that strikes a perfect balance in a room.
This shelf reminds me of the look we'd see in a french countryside home. Living in England going over to France is an easy trip for Jackie...lucky girl.
Gee, I hope she doesn't mind that I we've crashed her house on her own birthday?
Maybe we should have taken her to a nice fancy restaurant or something?
One thing that's for sure is that there is plenty of LOVE at the "Home" household. For those of you who know Jackie thru her blog know that she's witty and makes the best of every situation. She even likes the rain like I do. Even a dark cloud won't get her down. Her comments are always heart felt, supportive and genuine with a little "Brit" humor thrown in.
She has made blogging a true joy for me and I'm sure many of you.
I hope this birthday is the best ever and
all your wishes come true!
Love and hugs
