My Place and Your's - Through the Front Door

image; shelley t


This is what it is to walk through the front door of Chez Trbuhovich, probably not that remarkable to anyone else, but to me it is heaven.
All my favourite things are in this picture; the grey of the hallway, vintage posters - the first we ever bought many moons ago, a new delivery for Galmont(can you see the tiny glimpse of a tube in the bottom right foreground?), family photos and art work on the shelves to the right, vintage tram scroll, my gorgeous green (chartreuse, I mean!) Eames rocker - a family gift when Petit was born, a tiny little table and chairs and baskets and pots of crafty goodness for the Petits, a fabulous 1950's French enamel sign sitting in the window by a favourite poster artist, the beautiful lemon tree in the very background and the adorable Petit-Petit doing what he does best, lurching around in a very wobbly fashion!

Thanks again, Pip, for asking me to be Theme Queen. Hurrah! (That was my impersonation of you!!) I am really looking forward to seeing what the others have done. There's still time to join in, you have until Saturday - wanna play? Go here...

It really does look quite inviting, that little peek up the hallway, Shelley. So many lovely things to look at.
Thanks for the visit to my front door. Would you belive I picked the green trunk up from a small Salvos shop for $10!!!! No, me either!! lol. All I did was clean it and left all the character marks there!

The blog will look great and super pro with a cool header, I look forward to seeing it! You gotta blog for the love of it. I only have six followers so I sure have to otherwise what would be the point? :D

Whoa! Your house looks stunning! LOVE the grey walls, the shiny floors, and the lure of openness and light at the end of the hall.

Just beautiful.
