Apr 9, 2019

If you already know, you know.  If you have yet to be introduced to Eclectic Goods, you. are. welcome. This week’s Rad Resource is an online store run by an amazing woman, Denise (and she’s a twin momma!) out of Southern California. Denise combines her skills as an interior designer + coastal Cali girl + bohemian […]

Nothing is perfect in this house.  The house has been lived in, tweaked and added on to for 130 years. But that’s the charm of it for me.  Little narrow passages, hidden staircases, mysterious doors and cubbies.  Victorian woodworking, glass doorknobs and iron pulls.

RAD RESOURCE: Art To Frames I have some wonderful vendors I’ve found along the way that I would like to start sharing with you in a regular blog series I am calling Rad Resource. First up… ART TO FRAMES Problem: You’ve found a great print, but the size is irregular.  You look and look but […]

This week’s One Room Challenge update is a blog version of an out-of-office. Currently I am somewhere in the air en route to Florence, Italy. If you’ve been following my renovation you might have caught this last minute ticket purchase somewhere around week 3. Please feel free to follow along on my journey there on […]

Hello from my fully unpacked and almost completely settled home! Trying to get my kids to leave the house now is nearly impossible. School, playground, a toy store splurge nor Disneyland would entice them out the door. They have a space all their own again and they are claiming it! We are all happy nestling […]

Hooray! I can hear the sound of the One Room Challenge world sighing. First time in the history of ORC the reveal date has been moved one week further. For me this might bring the chair we thought wouldn’t have a chance of arriving on time! And, now I can enjoy my birthday week!! The […]
