I've been feeling the urge to lighten up my living/kitchen area. It's a pretty large space that flows along the back of the house. The base of it is light -- creamy walls and white cabinets, but there is a... Continue reading

I thought that I'd take you on a little tour of my special space. It is called the craft room, but it has become my craft room, yoga room, business center and private space to create and just be. I... Continue reading

Every once in awhile, an image comes up on Pinterest because I love it so much. This photo made me stop in my tracks with the big fireplace, bookcases and stone floor. It turns out that image is of one... Continue reading

I went to an estate sale! I haven't been to one in at least a year...maybe longer? But the ad caught my eye: "Antique European Decorative Arts & Antiques"...I couldn't resist. I snagged a few things, one thing for myself and the rest for Etsy. I've been keeping my eye out for a vintage antique store or book store sign for a long time. It was a little pricey, but I had to have it. I also found a nice set of English black antique transferware from the late 1800s. Continue reading

On the top of my to dos this week is to have some companies come out to our house for quotations for the addition of a patio to our backyard.

Flagstone was my original choice, mostly because I'm more familiar with it. I found some stunning examples of flagstone work done in my area. Bluestone is choice that I discovered while searching for ideas. Another option is slate. Continue reading
