One lonely little pic of the Master Bedroom in our first place…that’s all I have to remember it by… 🙁 sigh…
Here are a few pics of the Kitchen…I didn’t have to do much after we moved in. I just painted… …and added beadboard (my cottage style seems to always find its way in…no matter WHAT style the house is!) I painted the phrase, “ENJOY THE LIFE OF YOUR TIME” on the wall in the Dining […]
I’ve been thinking a lot about this area lately… Here is what is looks like currently: The problem is, I could never really get the floating shelves to sit right on the wall because the wood paneling is kind of unlevel, and the wall isn’t the straightest either. It realllly bugs me. So this is […]
The disc I was pulling these old pictures from seems to be damaged, so I sifted through about eighty other discs and FINALLY found some more photos to show. Here are some more photos of the Living Room, right before we moved out.Please excuse the “tray-table-console” behind the sofa. We used them everyday, but I […]
I decided to faux finish the brick wall in the Entry to match the exterior of the house. I used a specially formulated brick-colored paint that had sand mixed in it. I also painted the grout the same color as the grout on the exterior of the house…can you say time consuming? Here’s a photo […]
I’ve shown you so many pictures of my current home, but I’ve never shared any photos of the FIRST house Kevin and I bought together.

The ad reads- “Beautifully restored, large open floor plan apartment on second floor and loft like studio on first floor. Perfect live/work space for artist, musician or antiques dealer.” […]

Currently, there is a battle going on between the color Cobalt Blue and Red in this space.12 years ago, Michelle bought all cobalt blue accessories, dishes and transferware, but since […]
I received an email from the Dean Family recently, requesting my help with their Stairwell. Jenni purchased one of my Photo Consultations, so I got to work on some options for her to choose from. Here’s what Jenni wrote: “Here is the next space that we need some help on. It is our stairway that […]

The Ladd’s recently contacted me to do a Photo Consultation on the TV Corner in their Living Room. Here’s what Allicia wrote: I just used PayPal to hire you for the $25 photo consult on this corner space. I have been searching and thinking for almost a year now about what to do here. My […]
What do you get when you find an iron planter at a flea market for TEN BUCKS, a hanging water hyacinth cone-shaped plant basket and an indoor plant that only requires low light and minimal watering? The only thing I have to figure out now, is if I want it in the Kitchen, next to […]

Here’s some more of the photos I shot while “junkin” the other day with my friend, Sarah: BASKET – $5.00 I thought this would look GREAT on the floor, next to a fireplace, filled with white birch logs, like these: PIE CABINET – $89.00 The patina is to die for! TALL LAMP – $25.00 I […]
