  • This is What Blogging is All About
    on Sep 2, 2010
    Realizing I had a knack for creativity came at an early age.  Realizing my passion for making things look nice happened when I got my first apartment at 18.  Realizing my addiction to interior designing happened last year when my husband and I b...
  • Kitchen Makeover
    on Sep 1, 2010
    Yikes!  It's hard to believe that this was our kitchen one year ago.  When we bought our town house this is exactly what it looked like- the horrible border, two layers of caked-on wallpaper (hard to see in pics), 21 year-old blinds, stale cabinet...

    on Aug 4, 2010
    My mom was coming to ring in 2010 with us so I wanted as many things as possible to be perfect.  I had just finished our guest bedroom and it was about that time when I'd start itching for a new project.  The decision to demolition our ha...

    We were driving along when, as he pointed to the side of the road, Rob asked me, "Have you ever lit cattails to keeps bugs away?"  Am I the only person who has never heard those gorgeous growths of nature referred to as "cattail...
  • Backyard BlissI'm happy to tell you that I have crossed off an item from my On the Radar list.  Yippee!!  Woo to the hoo, hoo, hoo!!!  Now - don't think I've been slacking - I know it's been awhile since I've written about a new project.  I promise I've been b...
