Shutters - Shutters - Shutters

What really can add more charm to a home???

Do you have a clever way to use shutters other than along side doors or window ????

  1. Dear Renee, I have been following along for a while...this is not about shutters....I had no idea you loved horses as you do! As you know Zenyatta had her baby, with a star on her forehead just like her mamma. Several years ago my son. Matt introduced me to thorough breds ...we have been to the Breeders Cup and the Derby...and I have met Mike Smith, quite by accident, while in line getting my morning coffee in my hotel! I was totally speechless, he is my favorite!!! I have come to love this beautiful animal, it is not about the racing....anyway, I love decor and gardens and...your blog is so very entertaining and straight from the heart. I love that! N.xo

    how can i tell you how much your words mean to me?
    it is a wonderful thing to be seen,
    heard, and mostly understood.

    i thank you for that xxxxhugs

  3. Renee, Shutters really are the finishing touch on a home, important elements for me anyway. Adore all of the blue and turquoise.

    Come over to visit, I have a New Giveaway I think you will love!

  4. Love the charm and character shutters give virtually any home.....I have seen them used indoors to frame a doorway and as a headboard, beautiful!

  5. How about inside???
    Lots of dusting.


  6. My Mother had a passion for shutters and she put them on every house regardless of whether the fitted, or suited, and somehow they always worked!!!!!!
    We divided a room in two once using French door shutters and yes La Petite Gallery lots of dusting!!!!!

  7. OMG Renée .... my favourite subjest. I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE shutters. I think that they are the best treatment for windows. I have just ordered some more for our back bedrooms. We already have them in the front bedrooms and the front downstairs rooms of our home.
    Our daughter has just had them fitted in her home and our son and daughter-in-law want them too.
    Do you remember that my 60th birthday present from my husband was a pair of old, shabby, chipped French shutters ? I have one in our breakfast room, just propped up and one in our dining room. I LOVE them.
    As you can tell, shutters are a subject close to my heart !!
    ....and, how are you doing Renée ? Is your back feeling better and, even more importantly, have you been on anymore dates ?!!!! Much love. XXXX

Surrounded by all the things we wanted to see,

The atmosphere we wanted feel, smell and the sound we wanted to listen to.
