  • My Remodeled Pink Dining Room

    My Remodeled Pink Dining Room

    It was recently brought to my attention that I had never posted the “redecorate the dining room” post. This was a May ’17 project I set myself to completing before hosting a dinner party, taking our green dining room and transforming it into a pink dining room. And I was truly pleased with myself and […]

  • The Trivia Fundraiser Design

    The Trivia Fundraiser Design

    Our Fellowship fundraiser this year happened in the middle of February (since when does February get so busy?).  But the Trivia night activity had me stumped and grumped for a visual theme for a trivia fundraiser. I like to make one big visual statement with each event. The anchor applique for the Anchors Away fundraiser […]

  • Hallway Renovation Update

    Hallway Renovation Update

    I notice that sometimes there are items that will sit on my to-do list for an uncomfortably long time, taunting me with their incompletion. The reasons why they are not being accomplished had evaded me. But they linger like a pain deep in my hip saying there’s something worth an x-ray going on in there. […]

  • Weird Spaces and A Plan

    Weird Spaces and A Plan

    My front hallway has been in a state of disrepair and flux for many many years now. I had done some funky “looks like leather but it’s made out of paper bags” treatment in the area below the chair rail (known as the dado) but I’d ripped that off. And an idea to put up […]

  • Floor Cloth and Summer Solstice Decorations

    Floor Cloth and Summer Solstice Decorations

    I had hoped that some day I would be known for my event decorating skills. I love how just the right decorations can make you feel like you are somewhere special. Ms. Debbie asked me to decorate the sanctuary for the Summer solstice service and of course I said yes.   After doing a search […]

  • Getting Out Of My Way Again

    Getting Out Of My Way Again

    My life’s forest has always been invisible but for my own trees. I’ve always known I can’t see me but now I believe I’ve blocked my view. I need to get the heck out of my way. Maybe you knew this about me and I thank you for keeping it on the down low until […]

  • Fiona’s Room Reveal

    Fiona’s Room Reveal

    And in the nick of time, I’ve finished decorating Fiona’s room. Finished as much as it will be this week. And of course, the moment the big girl bed goes in, the room shifts about again.  Her birthday party is on Sunday and the surest way to finish an unfinished house project is to throw […]

  • The Curtains : Fiona’s Room

    The Curtains : Fiona’s Room

    Fiona’s Room Reveal started yesterday. First up on the show and tell stage are the curtains. Ah the curtains. Long story short, they were a long story that needed an ending. I had a sewing phobia. And I got over it. Because I was silly and the room hinged on their completion. The story told […]

  • Fiona’s Room Reveal Starts

    Fiona’s Room Reveal Starts

    There’s been much ado about Fiona’s room. It was a laborious process to finish the painting and the curtains and to finally load in the room. Mostly the drama is based on the fact that it’s hard to work on her room when she’s in the house. Ironic but true. And since she’s pretty much […]

  • My Decorating Style

    My Decorating Style

    When we moved into this house, I wanted to change everything. And I almost did. I randomly and creatively reformed this old house into an artist’s house. It’s something I just do. I Hardly ever buy newly made stuff. No way. I must have unique homemade and thrifted stuff. And use it in a totally […]
