Back in July I posted about this twin poster bed that I thrifted for $40 with plans to use it in my daughter's room. Below is the piece when I found it: And here's a peek at what it looks like in her room now that I've painted in black and bought bedding for it. The textile hanging above the . . .
For the past couple of months I have been hard at work at Gather, my coffee/tea, gift shop & coworking space in downtown Cary everyday Monday through Saturday and it hasn't left much time to work from home, catch up on backlogged emails and to-do's or to just pause to reflect. I'm big on . . .
We recently had a party at our home with some friends, so while our house was tidy without toys and project piles everywhere (the downstairs anyway) I snapped some photos. Our wide open downstairs has evolved a lot in the seven years that we've lived here. In the past couple of years in . . .
This is going to sound crazy but since my daughter was born (six years ago!) the space where I've worked out of has been in flux. It has long been on my to-do list but so many other things got in the way or took priority. I knew how I wanted my space to function and look but making it happen just . . .
For the past five years my bedroom has been painted a pretty light blue color. Over the past year or two we've been handed down a few furniture pieces that I think would look really handsome against a warmer medium gray. You might remember that at the beginning of last year I contemplated . . .
I love keeping fresh flowers in the house. It's easy to create a beautiful flower arrangement from whatever you have growing in your backyard or even from the seemingly lackluster selection from the grocery store. I snagged these above (plus many more that aren't shown in these pictures) for about . . .
I work from home and typically that suits me but sometimes in the winter months it’s harder for me to find the motivation to keep at it. I don’t know about you, but this year I’m really feeling the January blues. Maybe it is because the holiday vacation was a little longer and knocked away my . . .
I remember the first Harper's Bazaar I bought when I was a teenager. I was instantly in love with the visual storytelling through photography, the fabrics, the clothes. Many of the imagery was shot by photographers Patrick Demarchelier and Richard Avedon and to say that their work through this . . .
I've been surrounded by gardeners my whole life and growing up my Mom always had a number of fruit trees, and a large fenced vegetable garden in the back. I have fond memories of sitting on my Great Grandmother's porch swing, watching the hummingbirds land on the feeder, and smelling her Muscadine . . .
When I'm working I tend to sit at the kitchen table, but I have a few spots around the house where I do different business related tasks. My official "studio" is in the garage and doesn't look nearly as nice as some other areas which is an understatement to say the least - think piles of boxes, . . .
Lots of weed pulling, mulching and garden preparation going on at my house. So far this year I've planted basil, peas, and green, yellow and red peppers. Despite the fact that it is still early, I'm taking my chances on there being no more frost. Basil will turn black and die if it gets too cold at . . .
I've just added a page on the blog that features a house tour. You can see all the photos here. I've also added a photo link in the sidebar to the right. Eventually, I'd like to also add a section with ongoing house projects since I am always working on something. Would you be interested in seeing . . .
