If you don't know Donna from Funky Junk Interiors yet you really must check her out!
When I began blogging, Donna's blog was one of the first I found and the first one that I decided to follow, and it has remained a favourite for me. I'm sure we all have blogs that excite us - well her blog has always done it for me.
So when Donna put the invite out for all of us locals to drop by her home during her Spring open house I was on it. She actually participated in a similar tour at Christmas time, but truth be told I was a little afraid to show up for fear of appear stalker-ish! This was different though as I now had an invitation!
I gathered up my sister and off we went on a road trip to Donna's place. But as we made our way out to her place I started to get a little nervous. Before I had kids I worked in the film industry in the costume department and had met a lot of celebrities. I had romanticized what they might be like and some sadly turned out to be nothing like what I had envisioned. I could never really look at them the same way again. I didn't want this to happen to the way I felt about Donna. I have always admired Donna's creativity and how she speaks so honestly and from the heart. I am happy to say that Donna is every bit as lovable in person as she is in her blog - very warm, hospitable and funny too. She did not disappoint.
We had a wonderful visit which really didn't last long enough.
She was nice enough to put on her now famous mac jacket just to humour me.

This bedroom is my absolute favourite.
The colour palette, texture, chippy wood door, the garden gate, ladder, everything about this room is perfectly put together and there just couldn't be a more calming,
or comfortable place to rest.
If you can believe it this "White Trash Bedroom" as Donna calls it,
is even more stunning in person.
After re-reading this post through I realize that I sound a little gushy and perhaps a little star struck, oh well! Go visit Funky Junk Interiors and I'll know why!
