old gal

In an era obsessed with youth and all sorts of potions and injections there is something wonderful about an old gal who remains ageless and fun. On the outside, one might think this old gal is all about tradition. Step one foot inside and know that tradition can be tweaked and twisted to add a little ageless spunk.

This wonderful old gal was recently transformed by Valorie of Visual Vamp. Valorie recently asked if I might mind spreading the word that she is available to give your home a fresh vibe. Valorie has a great eye for keeping some old heirlooms and adding some new ones. To honor Valorie, this illustration is being sent to her. Perhaps she might have grown attached to this old gal or want her client to have a print. I am always thinking of ways to honor such talented blog souls.

Beautiful home, and you did a superb rendering. There is something about older homes. The charm, and as
