Thank you. We had some issues after hurricane Irma that motivated us to go ahead with this project. I am happy how it is turning out. Maybe needs a few splashes of color. I added some plants and that really helped. Thank you for visiting. I hope you stop by again soon. Pamela

At its heart, Where The Crawdads Sing is a superbly written story in a hauntingly beautiful setting of a strong woman, her survival, growth, and the victory of the human spirit. It is the debut novel of writer Delia Owens, and the easy flow of her words describing a tortured subject matter are brilliant. Continue reading

The bathroom in our new-to-us downsizing house will have a smaller bathroom than we have had in the past twenty years. I'm okay with the compact space, but the lighting was more of a struggle than I counted on. Follow... Continue reading

While I absolutely love this look, I am wondering if it was the best choice for a small bathroom. The vanity is a double sink cabinet but it isn't overly generous. Everything here is efficiently compact...I am thinking I need to keep the pendant lighting not much wider than 10". Continue reading
