### Simple Seven

HEART WEATH--ANGEL--WINDOW--
CANDLE--TWO GOURDS--HONEYSUCKLE VINE
=THE PLAIN AND SIMPLE SEVEN
I've learned something about myself. . .I've become a PRETTY SIMPLE GAL. . .in my HOME. . .in my FASHION interests. . .in my entire LIFESTYLE. . .As I have taken on more responsibilities around the farm, I've had much less time to do anything not SIMPLISTIC. . .To my surprise, it has turned out to be a positive thing. . .I don't know why it's such a surprise because I began this journey with THE COUNTRY FARM HOME to find my decorating style. . .I coined the phrase 'PLAIN AND SIMPLE FARMHOUSE STYLE' and knew the direction I was taking. . .Little did I know, though, that I would get SIMPLER and SIMPLER and SIMPLER. . .If you've been reading the blog for a few years, you've seen the evolution. . .
I think this is the simplest and quickest grouping I've ever done. . .Yes, you've probably seen the SIMPLE SEVEN before. . .but placing them together up high changed everything. . .

Most of the SIMPLE SEVEN were headed to storage when I thought to myself. . .What could I display above the kitchen storage cabinets for this time between Halloween and Christmas?. . .I started grabbing from the pile. . .cleared off the area above the cabinets. . .and up went the HEART WREATH. . .the GOURDS. . .the WINDOW. . .the ANGEL. . .the CANDLE. . .I stepped back and looked. . .It needed something more. . .something to tie everything together. . .Then I glanced out the kitchen window and saw a pile of cuttings that had been left to carry to the compost pile. . . THE HONEYSUCKLE VINE !!!. . ."PERFECT'. . .I ran out and  grabbed it. . .came back in and literally threw the tangled mess on top. . .Fifteen minutes and I'm done. . .LOVE IT !!!!!
It was at that moment it dawned on me. . .
I must have become a PRETTY SIMPLE GAL. . .

Decorating my own house has taught me how simple I like things too. Isn't decorating fascinating? It has really taught me a lot about how I make decisions, which I think has helped me made them better. (Decisions have always been the bane of my existence! I would much prefer someone else make them.)

Very lovely look. Love the honeysuckle vine touch.

Lovely!!! I do my share of 'throwing' things together to - with what happens to be lying around. Guess it's called 'life moving too fast'... but most of the time it works. What you've done here is just beautiful!
