my eclectic decorating

I went furniture shopping with my daughter - I rarely step into a furniture store.  The salesman was all about choosing things that matched.  Well, it's my daughter's house and she can choose what she wants but when he directed those statements to me I just shook my head. Many of the items in my house are things I've picked up at antique stores and yard sales.  I buy things because I like them, not because they match something in my house.  This little cupboard looks like someone made it for their little girl.  I didn't do anything to it as I fell in love with it just the way it is.  The red linoleum used on it reminds me of my grandmother's kitchen - maybe that's why I fell in love with it.
