Kindred Spirits

Hello my friends,
 
Some of you may know that my two favorite numbers are
 7 and 17.  It might have something to do with the fact that it is my
 birth date.  :)
 
 I automatically have an immediate connection with anyone who loves either of these numbers.
 
It just so happens that one of these #17 loving people is Paula from

 
The more I got to know Paula, the more I realized that we are 'kindred spirits'.
 
Not only do we love the #17, but we both love red and white, polka dots, and much much more!
 
Last week she had an open house where we got to tour her newly created attic bedroom.
 
Want to step inside?
 
Let's see what lies behind that wonderful chippy door sporting the red #17.

 
Another wonderful old door leading into the closet. 
 
 
 
Lots of red deliciousness!
 




 



 
 
(the S&P shakers are a fun tribute to her and her husbands initials)
 
 
Not only were there wonderful red and white furniture pieces, but also her wall décor and vignettes.
 
 
Both her and her husband attended University of Utah and
 so did her father. 
 

 
University of Utah is known as the Utes.
 
How unique is this light?
 
 
Some of her #17 collection.





 


 
I love this circus display!
 
Her friend, Wendy made the fabulous doll on the circus tin.
 
 
Now let's step into the bath.
 
 
 
Guess who made that cute grain sack stool?  That would be me, lol!  She bought it from me at 'Fleology'.  Paula is the one who hosts that vintage sale.
 
 

 
Valentines Day may be over, but you can see that there's a whole lot of red and white love going on in Paula's new master suite!
 
 
Hope you enjoyed the tour of one of my 'kindred spirits'!
 
hugs,
Jann
 
I will be sharing with these lovely parties:

Love it, love it. So she lives in the old Dixon home on the corner in Payson? Next to the other Dixon home. I am very familiar with the house. I have been in both of them many many years ago. This attic room is beautiful. Thanks for sharing. Karie @ karie's chic creations.

Wow, Paula's home is filled to the rafter with red and white deliciousness. I could lie in that bath, soaking in bubbles forever...AND...how cool is that light. Everything is just gorgeous!

All that RED! Wow! I love RED! Love the old doors, the red table with gingerbread trim, the circus sweetness, sooooo many cute ideas! Thank you!

AnnMarie aka Vintage Junkie aka NaNa said...

The red and white everywhere is stunning! I love the doors and the "IN" on the doorknob. What a unique and fun place to be. Number 3 and 7 are my favorites. Did you know that 7 is the number of completeness in the Bible?

Betty from My Irish Cottage Home said...

WOW, I love all the red. Last year I started adding red to my home, but not alot yet. Hoping to paint some outdoor furniture this year red.

Hi Jann, I am so glad that you shared more of Paula"s lovely room. She is certainly a pro. Everything she touches is amazing. No wonder you are kindred spirits.
Wishing a perfect weekend. xx Jo

We must be kindred spirits because my birthday is 7-17-47...lotsa 7's...

At Rivercrest Cottage said...

My middle daughter has two children, Livvie born on 3/7 and Ben born on 2/17...7 and 17. Today was their combined birthday party so I have been thinking a lot about 7 and 17 today and then I saw your post about those numbers. Spooky. Maybe we are all kindred spirits.

Mountain Mama said...

I'm drooling over that tub!!!!

Sarah said...

Jann, thanks for the fun tour. Love all the red and white. I was born on the 18th. '-)

Mary@mydogsmygardenandmary said...

WOW, I love her red bedroom - its great. I love anything red as you know by my red couch.
She really has it decorated so cute. Thanks for taking us on tour of the guest bedroom.
Have a great week Jann.
Hugs,
Mary

I love the red and white, her home looks so inviting!

I'm another 7 and 17 lover - my birthday is Feb 7, and 17 has appeared at the oddest times in my life since an old boyfriend mentioned it was his favorite number (back in the early 80's). It's become a game for us to mention how often 17 occurs (most recently, it was my order number at Whataburger, lol).

Sandra said...

I am always drawn to the color Red. It is a color I am quite comfortable with. It makes me feel happy. Wonderful sharing of your Kindred Spirits.

Oh My, although my numbers are #3 and #7, that red/white room draws a happy smile on my face! I'm sure you enjoyed your tour and visit with your kindred spirit friend! Many blessings, Cindy xo

This is just an amazing space. Beautiful. So many wonderful little touches here and there.

Stacey said...

Oh my gosh, I love everything about this! The doors, the red touches, the numbers. But S&P takes the cake for me! My husband and I are S&P also. :)

Thank you for sharing this adorableness at Thoughts of Home on Thursday. Love it!
