Time Travel Thursday #86 & Talented Time Travelers #85


"We all have our time machines. Some take us back, they're called memories.
Some take us forward, they're called dreams."
~Jeremy Irons~


Welcome to the 86th Time Travel Thursday linky party at The Brambleberry Cottage!

Are you ready to share your fondest memories, grandest dreams,
and most creative projects? Great!

But it just wouldn't be right if we didn't have at least a little fanfare for some
of our talented time travelers from last week's party, so...


Green is one of my very favorite colors
And by now, you're keenly aware of my fondness of antique and vintage items.

Needless to say...
when I spotted this fantastic antique dresser—masterfully transformed by the
painterly touch of Shari @ turnstyle vogue DESIGN & STYLING
my heart went pitter-patter.   ; )


If it were not for the telltale signs—the fire extinguisher and the exit sign
over the exterior door—you would most likely never guess that this cheery space
 is actually the residence of a senior in an assisted living center.

In the words of Linda @ Beautiful Ideas, "The room ‘BEFORE’ was institutional,
bleak, impersonal and, admittedly, depressing…"  But once Linda applied
her loving touch to the space, it became a place of
comfort and homeyness for her mom.


Black is another color that I love to see used in
decorating schemes.

It can be bold and modern or serenely sophisticated...
as demonstrated by Jennifer @ DECORATING IDEAS Made Easy.

In many décors—including my own—it is even considered a neutral.
That makes it a favorite among decorators.

Now what creative ideas will you tempt us with this week?

  15. Hi Liz,
    Thank you so much for hosting such fun parties! I really enjoy them and your blog! I was so surprised to learn that you were featuring my post on Mom's room at the seniors' home. She will be thrilled when I tell her! Lol I am so honoured that you chose to include me in your features this week along with Shari's dresser and Jennifer's dining room! Wow! These ladies are so talented and have such beautiful blogs, as do you. I'm very honoured and appreciative. Thank you, too, for going to the trouble of reconstructing your post! It must have taken a lot of your precious time to do that. It's very kind of you.
    Wishing you a beautiful week,
    Linda at Beautiful Ideas
