Color Pop

office

I changed up my office just a little. Normally, it looks like this.  Blue and brownish.  I consider blue a neutral in this house.   I added pink in the spring. It takes almost nothing to change the look of a room.  I like to mix things up just for fun.  It started with this […]

My stump table isn’t a stump at all.  It’s a branch.  It’s the only good thing that came from our beautiful back yard tree that fell.  I knew I wanted a piece of the tree to make into a table and because of my extreme aversion to do any project that takes patience, tons of […]

Lately, I’ve asked myself what’s the least amount of items I can have displayed and still love the look? Not that I’m trying to go minimalist or anything, I think you can tell that by my full gallery wall.  But what has my obsession been with much? In years past, I asked myself, How can […]
