I took a quiz about my style and here are the results.
I am a traditionalist at heart with an eye towards more eclectic looks.
I like classic looks and coordinated pieces in my home but like to add some energy and personality with a few more eclectic pieces. I may like a more antique look or gilded accents or just tailored lines, but I prefer a look that is mostly uniform and balanced.
I . . .
want my home to be stylish and that is a reflection of me and my overall tastes.
like to include pieces with a classic look such as antiques or items with a sense of history to them.
want my home to be comfortable and inviting and that is a reflection of me and my lifestyle.
want my home to have a bright, cheerful look.
see my home as an expression of my personal style.
like classic modern pieces.
like ethnic accents and a “worldly” look.
like your space to look somewhat dramatic.
like cool colors.
like bright pops of color or colorful accents.
like to use some traditional gilded or wood accents in my home to give it a sense of timelessness.
When I was a teenager I had a long-haired dachshund named Princess. As a young married I had a miniature long-haired dachshund name Max.
I have been talking about getting a dog for awhile now so I finally contacted a breeder and put my name on a waiting list for a red-haired miniature long-haired dachshund expected to be born early in February. I’ll take either a boy or a girl.
I hope to get one of a litter whose mother looks a lot like my former dogs. The take home date will be early in April.
We put our bare Christmas tree out in the yard to attract birds with some homemade edible ornaments.
Charlie is home during the day and saw birds around and near the tree before I did. He sent me a fuzzy photo.
Today I finally saw some birds for myself. There was a flock of cardinals feeding on the ground near the tree. I saw one fly into the branches but not feed on the seeded pine cones.
The big attraction for me was a downy woodpecker on the seed bell we had placed on the top of the tree. I watched for a long time while he hammered away at the bell.
The downy woodpecker is smallest woodpecker in North America, common and widespread. In the east this is the most familiar member of the family coming to backyard bird feeders. In winter it often joins roving mixed flocks of chickadees, nuthatches, and other birds in the woods.
