Carefree n’ Cottage Chic

Since my teen years, I have spent much of my time at a keyboard. Computer work has always come naturally to me, and is likely my best skill… what started-off as keyboarding, led to word processing, to then desktop publishing, to then (and still today) web development and design. Although my ‘beloved’ computer is work… Continue reading Carefree n’ Cottage Chic

Open the windows, put away your snow shovel, and switch your hot coffee to iced folks… because spring is definitely here! And with spring comes… lots of dog poop to pick up in the yard?!

Knowing who you really are and what you really want beats being young and cute. It’s true… things do get better with age… and folks, it’s not just wine. It’s a LOTTA things… like — love, leather boots, jeans, flannel sheets, whiskey, cheese, Richard Gere (just sayin’), and more! Now I’m not sayin’ we should… Continue reading Free Spirit Chest

Take Me Back Buffet

Although buffets were traditionally used in the dining room for serving food and displaying dishes, they are a timeless furnishing that can be used for so many additional purposes! While scrolling a local buy n’ sell site, this solid Jacobean buffet stopped me in my tracks! Aside from ‘her’ unfashionable orange tone, this ‘gals’ striking… Continue reading Take Me Back Buffet

A Breath of New Life

Even timeless pieces can lose their luster. Time dulls them, use wears them, age can weaken them. Some mending if needed, and a fresh coat of paint can be all you need to breathe new life into a tired piece. Although standing tall and beautiful when I found ‘her’ — I knew this charming tiger… Continue reading A Breath of New Life

‘Perfectly Imperfect’ Antique Bedroom Suite

“Perfect” — we strive for it, we desire it, we crave it.  But WHY do we do this to ourselves, when truly NOTHING is perfect?! I find myself guilty of this far too often. Striving for perfection is EXHAUSTING. It’s when I live by grace, and not perfection; that I’m gently reminded that nothing in life… Continue reading ‘Perfectly Imperfect’ Antique Bedroom Suite
