I fell in love with books at age six. That is when I read Charlotte's Web and decided that I wanted to be a writer when I grew up. Books saved my childhood. Long story, I won't bore you with it. Let's just say that I wasn't one of the... Continue reading

Not that anyone is reading this blog, but I feel the need to explain my absence. I've been unpacking. And unpacking. And still more unpacking. And I'm not done yet. Things have been coming together nicely, though. I'm very happy with the rooms that are finished, even though there are... Continue reading

Today my writing prompt asked me what was most important to me, in choosing a house. Every time we move, I make a list of what we have to have at the new place, but the list is mostly about not wanting to miss things that were at the old... Continue reading

I bought turquoise chairs (part of my turquoise/gray/etc. pallet) as a relatively inexpensive way to make my Flat Rock kitchen table fit into the Florida scheme of things. I'm really happy with the result! Continue reading

When I ordered the dressers, I didn't pay for the "expert assembly" in the room of my choice. Big fail. See, I thought, "It's a dresser. You screw on the feet and insert the drawers." Well, no. If you order the dresser from Wayfair and can't believe the great price... Continue reading

I have spent many hours on many websites, trying to find something to hang over the bed. It (or they) had to be the right colors, and, I thought, something tranquil. But after looking at a zillion tranquil beach scenes, it finally occurred to me that I'm not a person... Continue reading

So. I sold all the Flat Rock hickory furniture. I highly recommend Flat Rock Furniture, should you ever buy a cabin in the woods. It's very pricey, but it is built to last for several generations. And it's really gorgeous. But it doesn't look good in Florida. So I sold... Continue reading

First, a little back story. I am, much to my on-going surprise, a "woman of a certain age." As most people my age will tell you, I feel like I'm about 35 or 40, but the mirror says otherwise. (However, as "women of a certain age" go, I get along... Continue reading

I love to look at websites for ideas. It's the modern version of window shopping. (And, if you have a PC instead of a Mac, it is window shopping.) My husband becomes twitchy when he sees me browsing websites. He doesn't understand that putting it on your "wish list" or... Continue reading
