Master Bedroom "Do"

We did some demo over here in the master bedroom today, in preparation for the big re-do.Which, come to think of it, isn’t really a re-do.It’s more like a “do“, period. Ya see, we haven’t even really touched the room since we moved into this place three years ago. It’s just been a big, blank […]

Design Star &

Once upon a time, I thought it would be a good idea to try out for HGTV’s hit reality show “Design Star”. I thought it might be a fun experience and that I might actually be able to keep up with the hundred-million-mile-an-hour pace the contestants endure while they’re filming the show. And it wasn’t […]

As long as I live, I will never forget our trip out to Sliver Island. It’s not really called “Sliver Island”…but that’s what I call it. It’s actually called Little Tybee, but because the part we explored was only about twenty five steps wide, I decided to call it Sliver Island instead. Obviously, because it’s an island, […]

The "Lettered Love" Room at Screened Inn

Since my heart literally skips a beat each time a new shelter mag appears in my mailbox, I decided to have some fun and display the master bedroom photos we shot at Screened Inn “magazine style” in this post. (My blog is my playground, and passion pushes my swing!) But before you look at the […]
