For almost nine months, that's what we've been calling her. Her "real name"? Annette. (or "The Net" or "The Nut" if you're under the age of 4) She arrived 11 days early and we were so not ready. But that's... Continue reading

we used to talk on semi-regular basis? I would blather on about something I thought was thought provoking and interesting. You would read it and occasionally respond in the comments? I liked that. A lot. Then I got a little... Continue reading

It's not very often that I stop and think about the fact that I might be doing something for the last time or at least not doing it again for a very long time. Normally when we move I can... Continue reading

feeling all sorts of good feelings as of late. Thankful- for so MANY things- health, love, family, new adventures. Excited- about the new house, about new business ideas. Happy- with the general direction things are headed, that I've got two... Continue reading

Here we are. The end of the road. Well, the end of 31 Day of Art and Accessories. It's been fun to pick through my Pinterest boards and the interwebs to show you some of the things I love. I... Continue reading

I wanted something to go over the millwork we designed for our fireplace. With 18' ceilings, I opted to make the fireplace surround top out at 10' which left us 8' of wall space above it. It looks great and... Continue reading

I'm in love with Jennifer Moreman's art. It's graphic, colorful, and just says "fun" to me. I'd love to have an original like this one: Maybe one day. But until then, I might just have to give in and buy... Continue reading

Two for the price of one, again. ;) Sundays are always busy around our house and yesterday was no exception. Let's revisit the idea of making the perfect out of the less expensive, shall we? Yesterday I spent an hour... Continue reading

Here I am, doubling up again. Not sure what happened yesterday. I sat down at my desk, opened my email and went to work on catching up the office paperwork and lost all track of time. I was "going to... Continue reading

String art. I love it. It's fresh, fun, and just a little bit funky. I'm thinking of something like this for the guestroom or maybe the basement? We'll have to see. It's a DIY project that would be fun to... Continue reading

Quilts. They are most definitely art in my world. Last year when the lake house closed and we decided to build "one last house" I thought I would sew something for each room in the new place. A quilt, a... Continue reading

Well, as you can see, I missed a day of posting yesterday. Seems that my electrician had big plans to completely finish the electrical install yesterday which meant I either had to decide to cap off the spot for my... Continue reading

Does lighting count in the accessory department? well, for our purposes today, let's say that it does, shall we? :) Thanks. We have SUPER tall ceilings in the new great room. They're about 18 feet. LOVE them. But they feel... Continue reading

Let's talk about photo groupings... I love them. It's a great way to take a lot of different art pieces and make them feel like a big statement. I've got plans to do an installation like this in the new... Continue reading

Book pages. Art. Same thing. This look has been around for several years but I don't see myself tiring of it anytime soon. I have a beautiful wreath that Miley made for us a few years ago at Christmas and... Continue reading

So, last night while I was laying in bed, I had a conversation with God before I drifted off to sleep: "You know, God, the new house will be done soon and we could now sell this house without having... Continue reading

Mirror, mirror on the wall... you've got possibilities afterall. :) Ah, Restoration Hardware, I do love you so... Continue reading

I'm a fan of maps. For some reason I am always more at home in a new place when I take a few minutes to study a map and get a lay of the land. I just like knowing the... Continue reading

Let's talk about kitchen art, shall we? I'm in love with this idea: Instead of Apple Pie, I'm thinking my world famous blonde brownies might be just the ticket. Need to figure out if I can do this on my... Continue reading

Oops... got a little distracted yesterday with birthday party stuff for Miss Charlotte who turned ONE on September 30th. :) This sweet girl is just pure joy in our lives. I'm so glad God chose us to be her Gram... Continue reading

Running a little late today. Miley and I went to Junk Stock this morning and did a little vintage-y shopping. We ran into Becky and had a great time walking around looking for something fun to take home. Miley bought... Continue reading

Fabric. The ultimate in decorating possibilities. Think of all the things it can be used for: furniture, draperies, art, pillows, bedding... etc. I has the ability to turn up the volume or calm it down. It's a miracle worker, for... Continue reading

Today I'm looking for an accessory piece that will hang over our fireplace in the Great Room of the new house. I'd really like a splashy art piece but I'm pretty sure that the very opinionated fabric I chose for... Continue reading

I've got plans for this piece... Doesn't it look like a giant geo tag? I thought so too. It's actually a cover for some kind of engine, I think. I'm going to use it in the hallway right outside the... Continue reading

Mirror, mirror on the wall... I love a good mirror- Especially in a bathroom. To say I'm not a fan of plate galss mirrors in bathrooms would be a huge understatement. And for the money that a builder will pay... Continue reading
