Decorating is endless.
Cooking never ends.
Gardens are always changing.
And best of all shopping goes on and on!

Hence the name,
Open Ended!

Thank you for your thoughts!
I hope that in time I will get more people to weigh in on this blog!
I have been told to have patience and I am slowly but surely seeing more action.
As I told my daughter, I will not give up on this blog!

So now I will tell you my thoughts on this wonderful room by:
Cote De Texas

My first thought was that I needed to enlarge this photo
so I could really have a good look at it!

Next I notice the weeping branches in the glass vase.
Tell me, who thinks of that?!!

Then the floor, I love the floor, I actually have that floor in my
sunroom & mudroom.

It looks like there's a double island
and oh how I would love a double island.
I was finally blessed with my first island!
But to have one island to prepare and a second to serve from,
well that would be heaven in my book!

Love the pictures above the windows, the beams on the ceiling,
the farmhouse sink, the muted warm colors.....

and how about this funky stained piece and that bulls head!

I have actually been thinking I need a head in my kitchen.
I found one at Wisteria and I've had my eye on it for sometime now!

Are you wondering what's with the bulls head?
Why is it in the kitchen?
Here's what Wisteria has to say about this one!

The Butcher Shop Bull
{ it?}
"Similar to those found in old turn-of-the-century
French butcher shops, our mighty beast is actually
a replica of an antique from that era.
And we’re happy to report no animals were harmed in the
heavy resin casting of our bull’s head."

Ok, so it's a replica of an antique!
Who wouldn't want one!
