This was a project I didn’t intend to blog about. But after putting up this photo on Instagram, quickly taken with my iPhone, the interest was huge! So I felt maybe it was worthwhile sharing with you here, for those struggling with gift ideas. We needed 4 gifts, and finding out the recipients loved Starbucks, […]

In November, I picked up the Stocksund sofa and two chairs from Ikea. My 20 year old (bad) junk just had to go. But being cautious me, I purchased the new stuff and put it together before I got rid of the old. All in the same room. At the same time. Goodness. This place […]

Today, I felt a need to play. I should have painted the boy’s bedroom, and I should have mowed the lawn, along with some flower bed weeding while it wasn’t pouring rain out for a change. But no. While still clamouring around in my pjs, I wandered to my newly cleaned up photo studio, desiring a more creative outlet. See what happens when […]

My ultimate dream home is a white farmhouse, with a wrap around porch, in the middle of a few rolling hills, with a creek or lake out back. Isn’t that a wonderful vision? Thing is, the farmhouse craze is currently alive and well all over the land. So, due to many requests, it was time to bring […]
