My Dad’s Dining Room: Finally {Almost} Finished!


You might remember this project from way-back-when but my dad’s dining room at the lake cottage started out looking like this: The room was actually taken down to its studs prior to this picture being taken but I don’t have any shots of that.

Queen Anne’s Bouquet


I’ve got more pictures of my new fabrics/ curtains!  (I’m sorry if you’re sick of them by now, but I am so insanely excited that I can’t stop.)  In my bedroom at the cottage (my dad’s) I decided to hang my newest design Queen Anne’s Bouquet on either side of the doors to the balcony: […]

Kid- Friendly Design Rant


Let’s talk about “kid friendly.”  I may be tired today or I many be impatient this morning, but I’m going to say it pretty straight:  You CAN (and SHOULD!)  have a well-done beautiful home with children in the house.

Creepy & Hysterical


I’d forgotten all about one of the games I used to play as a kid:  My best friend & I called them our “wizards.”   We would look at each other upside down, cover up our noses & mouths and see “wizard” faces.  It looked like creepy men with beards.  Sometimes we’d draw lips on our […]
