d-r-a-b….to fab!

Toss in the dumpster? I purchased this very creepy-looking light from deep in a garage in Edina 6 years ago, which I believe originally came from IKEA. Attempting to add some light to the sunk-in kitchen room this light has hung for years. I believe it has only further contributed to that sunk-in feeling. I [...]

looking forward –

Did you just crack a smile? Or maybe a little smirk?? Me too! There are things—moments and afternoons and evenings—to look forward to. We get to move toward the longer days, and the higher temps. I am in. I am in for all of it. Had some fun scribbling and doodling on this rainy Sunday [...]

i am inspired!

Thanks Anthro for going beyond funky with this wall art!! So out of the box. All 8 corners, I love it. And I think I could come up with the supplies needed—some old frames and scraps of fabric. Or photos. Maybe old ones. Or floral prints! Ohh…. I so hope I do. —

As you sip you dream of using phrases like: “If the weather is agreeable we shall take a stroll through [...]

restful thoughts.

Trying to keep some peace—find where it resides in myself and be open to more. Isn’t she lovely? So down to earth she is. She may be a bit tired after all the cutting and clearing away of the flowers—of which I am so proud of her for leaving a few undone. Yes, let go [...]

happy january!

And happy 2011! Don’t you just love turning the page of your calendar? Or how about starting fresh all together? It’s crazy how for me a visual of the month can get me motivated for all sorts of crazy things— from going through my tupperware drawer to looking up some soup recipes with pen in [...]

shouldn’t be so kind.

This little cabinet of mine – it went from drab pine – to aqua shine. The golden knobs from Anthro, of course. I have liked liked— but not loved loved. * * * * * Maybe I treated it too kindly? Stop the madness. This is very much indeed what I would love. Like forever [...]

it’s all how you look at it.

 Whirly and swirly, she feels fully alive and warm by the presence of snow. She takes it in. -or- Eyes squinting in the harsh wind she roams around the parking lot freaking out as there is no sight of her car. Or any car for that matter. Her words are carried by the whisper [...]
