COUNTRY COTTAGE MAGIC

WHAT IS SHABBY CHIC? ROMANTIC VICTORIAN WHITE WASH? COUNTRY COTTAGE?  TO ME IT'S A VERY FEMININE STYLE, WITH LOTS OF LACE AND LITTLE COLOR.  I WOULD NEVER HAVE THOUGHT IT WOULD BE MY STYLE, AS I AM ATTRACTED TO  BEEING BOLD, BRIGHT AND FULL OF ENERGY.  RECENTLY, THOUGH I HAVE DISCOVERED THAT I'M GROWING FONDER AND FONDER OF THE CALM, CLEAN WHITE, THE NOSTALGIA  OF THE PAST.  I HAD THE MOST WONDERFUL OPPORTUNITY A WEE BIT, SOME WEEKS AGO TO VISIT WITH TWO SPECIAL FRIENDS. VICKIE  STEVENS ORLANDO AND DIANA FREY.  THEY BOTH HAVE INCORPORATED IN THEIR HOMES THIS SOFT WHITE MAGIC, THAT I HAVE NAMED COUNTRY COTTAGE MAGIC…..
