A Look Around

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAWhen I’m in someone’s home, I look around for hints that tell me more about the person.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAVignettes always catch my eye and impress me as being quite personal.

  1. I really enjoyed this post so very much. I, too, love random vignettes which I agree can tell you so much about a person and their personality. Also fun to let the eye roam around another’s home.

    1. How right you are about letting the eye roam. My friends may hate to see me coming because I’m always taking pictures!

  2. I love vignettes and seeing things that interest people. Given us incite into their lives and each seem to tell a story about the person or family. I enjoyed each of your vignettes and pieces that make up your life.

  3. I agree…a home is such a great reflection of who one is and tells a lot about them.

  4. I notice everything in someone’s home, never to critique, but to know what they enjoy and to view their family photos and share their memories! Linda, thank you for always encouraging your readers to think!

  5. You wouldn’t want to come to my house at the moment, Lulu. It looks like a construction site, and the rooms that are finished are floor to ceiling with furniture, packing case and rolled up rugs. When it’s all finished, I’ll be able to call it home. 🙂 Beautiful photos. I enjoyed seeing all the decorative touches, and the bells reminded me that I have a few dozen packed away somewhere.

    1. Wish I were around to help you organize.

  6. I notice colors and visuals, the overall impression first and then the details. Lots of fascinating details here.

    1. I think we respond in much the same way.

  7. I enjoy visiting other people’s homes as well, and agree that one’s home gives incite into their soul. I hope my house will be clean when I have visitors. What does that say about me?

    1. Somehow, Teresa, I imagine your house to always be orderly.

  8. I notice usually if someone’s home is “warm” feeling by their colors and layout of furniture. As a child my friends always wanted to come to our house, which was much smaller than most, because it was a warm, cozy, inviting place. Today my friends still say our home is very warm feeling and some would like to kick their shoes off and relax reading the paper while others want to take a nap on the couch lol.

    1. Warm and cozy works for me every time. I’m not surprised to hear that is what attracts you.
