Style & Elegance...errr???

Hellooo....
Welcome to my parent's home-sweet-home...
visited them last weekend and did some click-click-click on my camera
and as promised~ simply had to share them...
.
Quite a reflection of style & elegance...
(but- shhh...wait for the little surprise* later!)
.
Their beautiful house was even published
in the local lifestyle magazine
(~wahhh... quite impressive!)
.
Beautiful Tasteful Art pieces...
That reflect their sense of style!
.
...BUT*
wait a minute...NOT So Fast Darlingsss...
style & taste ???
as usual get ready
for another 'BAM!' moment...
.
...errr-errr -READY ???
.
BAMMM!!!
whahaha... Let's get to know more about
my eccentric family...shall we?!
(errr...eccentric is the polite word, some may simply
call us ...crazzzzzy !!!)
Well-well-well...these are my mother's latest 'creations'
Told ya' ~she is an artist wannabe!!!
Take a closer look at her latest 'collage?':

.
What else can I say...errr-errr???
"She certainly has been very-very busy lately?!"
....busy cutting & pasting quirky animals on my father's
art collection!!! All my father can do is just
shaking & scratching his head...and says, "errr...???"
(poor daddy...the wife always wins in this household!)
that's right..."errr-errr?" definitely runs in the family as long I can remember!
.
This priceless art piece was given by
my father's important business associate...
But like I said...my dear mother has been very busy indeed!
.
errr-errr... "Meowww...?!"
(her choice of materials...old Pet magazines & double sided tapes!)
.
"mom I love you...BUT
what the heck is this??? "
Whahaha...she is such a hee-heelarious animal lover!
& art lover too?!...errr???
.
This is Dash,my mother's faithful companion
he is also another 'eccentric' member of the family!
He thinks that camel is his best buddy...
Hmmm...? is he part of the 'ART' installation too???
.
Another confession by LENORENEVERMORE:
I used to be so embarrassed by my family's 'eccentricitiesss...'
But now I try to embrace it more & more...
Does this mean I'm finally all grown up & getting matured???
...more on that next time darlings...All I know my family has taught me
a very important lesson...LIVE-LAUGH-LOVE !!! ~Amen*
.
Anyway, have a Fabulousss Weekend* Everyone!
"BIG Yayyyyy...Weee..."(yeah right~great sign of maturity Missy!
...all grown-up huh?!...whateverrr!)
.
~XOXO*

I love the animal collages, that is too funny.

Jan said...

Beautiful house. (Did you grow up there?)
Love the way your mother has placed her 'personal stamp' on the art works (which are not to everyone's taste anyway)
Fun.
Happy weekend Lenore x

Simply Mel said...

Poetikat said...

Beautiful home, BUT...I'm with you, your mother's "creations" are something else!

SKM said...

thank you for visiting my site - you are way more elegant than I am. ;-p (PS - Cat appreciated the comments as well.)

Anthony said...

This little insight to your parents is... interesting. Your dad has some nice art pieces in his collection, and I'm sure your mom's "personal touch" only increases their value! :)

Very beautiful home, btw. And Dash is SO cute, even if he thinks he's a camel...

Dumbwit Tellher ♥ said...

I started how with a huge chip of envy on my shoulder (parents home is stunning) & then ended with a huge chuckle. The exquisite piece of art with the kitty heads was what tipped me over the edge. I adore eccentric people; never can call them boring. I'm still jealous!

Carlene said...

Your parents' home is gorgeous, but your mother's collages ROCK!!

Hayley said...

your parent's home is quite beautiful. and all i can say to your mothers artwork is... 'err' ahhah. but i love it. she seems like quite a cool lady (:

Charmaine said...

omg your parent's home looks really nice! but those pictures of cats and dogs! haha it's funny, but it's special. i wish my family wasn't so boring and bleh.

Sixpence and a Blue Moon said...

OMG!!!! I am speechless after viewing such beauty. Would your parents be wanting to adopt a daughter??? I am up for adoption...yes, really I am.:)

I love their home. I can feel the love and joy that surrounds you...such a lucky and blessed lady you are!

Your mom's art is...quite lovely, I say.

Have a beautiful weekend darling lady!

And thanks for sharing your world.

xoxo

xphoebelinax said...

seriously, WOW!

your parents have divine taste! :D

Joyce said...

This is a sweet post. I get a kick out of the dog laying next to the camel. Made me smile. Isn't it funny how we learn to enjoy the moments that we use to want to crawl under the bed and die. Have a golden weekend! xoxo

Lianne said...

I'm an animal lover too, but it never crossed my mind to do what your mom has. I think I will be going through some magazines this weekend and doing a little cut and paste myself. Absolutely hilarious, and good for you for being able to embrace their eccentricities.

*Sandra* said...

I love your mother's sense of humor (it *is* her sense of humor, isn't it?). It wouldn't do to take such a 'Home and Gardens' pad as that, seriously, now would it?

Erin W said...

The house is beautiful, the artwork is... err... nice?

Serg Riva said...

that was a great post.

TheBeautyFile said...

oh my g-d you have my laughing so hard I'm almost crying...that's the funniest thing I've seen in a long time. I can totally appreciate your mother's quirky sense if humor and find it 100% amusing...please let her know she has a major fan in me!

Jeannette Mariae said...

A divine home. I think your mothers creativity is so funny.
Love, love, love...
Happy weekend, sweet Lenore ;-)

caroline duke said...

ha it's hilarious. i love it.

Susan said...

That's so curiously cute! A home isn't authentically stylish unless it's lived in and loved like this x

Eeli said...

haha HAPPY TGIF to you too! But its approaching Sun here now lol.

Your parents live in a home I would be absolutely floored living in. So much character and WARMTH exuded from all the furnishings. Whyever you chose to leave is insane!!!! haha

xx

cybeel said...

please say to your your mum she did a great job :))lovely

Annie Spandex said...

Lol... I love the dachshund sticker... And that is seriously an amazingly beautiful home

down and out chic said...

oh my, your mom kind of remind me of my mom. my mom is/was an artist though but has gotten more and more out there with decorating the home. the collages look familiar to me except hers were of her children's heads (ummm, weird?!)
anyway, i gotta love it, right?

Couture Carrie said...
