French Country Decor Inspiration {Cindy Witmer}


Let’s move beyond my unlovely spiritual crises
to soothing design

by talented Texan Cindy Witmer.




I would feel so at home here.

I first spied this designer’s work in Leslie Sinclair’s
Segreto Secrets (2011)…a must have book if
you have any interest in paint and faux finishes!

Are you enjoying your February weather?
I refuse to post anything remotely suggestive that I am ready for spring because everybody and their dog has worn out that topic across social media…refuse!

But won’t the sight of chlorophyll be outstanding?
(I snapped this of my butterfly magnet son a few springs ago.)

Peace to you right where you are.

 Hello Lovely at times partners
with companies I  love and think may interest you.

    Michele, What a great picture of your "butterfly magnet" son and wonderful quote to match. Those kitchens are gorgeous and I'm pinning them. Enjoy your Sunday. xxL

    I totally fell in love with these rooms. I am all about mixing a little rustic with some elegance. I think she is a great designer! Thanks for sharing!

    Super gorgeous and serene, Michele. I especially love how the light filters in.

    I'm actually not so bummed about the February weather – and I did notice some little green leaves on our hydrangeas. Loving each day as it unfolds!

    Have a beautiful week! XOXO

    Oh Michèle,
    I am so sort that I over looked your comment on our little Pia Bleu, Italian Greyhounds, they are the little bread, and I think rarely end up in rescues due to the fact they are not raced in the states like the greyhound larger bread.
    Really a breeder is the best way to go, and you will fall in love with their spirit. In fact they lift your spirits.
    Watch plenty of you tubes on them you will fall in love. They are truly a dog of smarts, they say the most intelligent dog of dog breeds. They call them the cat dog, this is because they love on you and want to cuddle on you, crawl up your neck, much like cats, you lose all privacy when you own an I.G …. They want to be with you by your side at all times. They are a house dog, don't need many baths, infact the water can dry out there skin.
    Very clean dog and when you look into their face there eyes take in every word you speak to them as if they truly want to communicate back to you.
    They do try to mimic your scolding commands by talking back at you.

    Really a dog to love, you have to be careful with their gentle bones when young, they run like a bullet.
    My daughter has made Pia her own instagram site and all over the world followers of Italian Greyhounds (iggies) follow. They will tell you all about their experiences with what they a dealing with their I.G.

    I hope you find the one you love, because it will sure love you back.

    Thank you Michele for taking the time to visit I will have to check out the plates you were talking about.
    The tray was another rare find for Target, love the store but hate mass production. This piece will be discontinued like all there specialty items and then you say to your self wow what a great piece I found. William Sonoma has them a bit smaller in depth for $89.00 so at $27.99 you can not loose on a piece that will out last. It's really heavy duty constructed.

    Talk to you soon, happy shopping

    Hey!, Just because you called it chlorophyll doesn't mean you aren't talking about SPRING!!! you sun deprived freak… !
    This place is just so soft and beautiful… love all the textures, and for some reason the stove just stood out to me. I want it real bad… You find the best places ever!
