It's so hard for me to believe that school is starting in just a few days. Summers here aren't like others. My husband and I own a business that's very seasonal and being that we live in Florida most of our customers are up North until after school starts. That being said, we spend LOTS of time here at home. Watching movies, going to Starbucks ... ok that's just me but really anything that keeps us from going stir crazy in 95+ degree temps and 99% humidity. Would I move? Ummm, NOPE. It's home. But with everyone here, decorating kind falls to the waist side. This past week however I had an itch to move some things around. Didn't realize just how much I had missed it. So until I can get back to doing some tutorials I wanted to share with ya some little vignettes I've set up ...

Enjoy ~

'Till next time ...

Boy Have I Missed You!!!!

Oh my goodness ... has it REALLY been since February that I had my last post? In February I started working as a Free-lance painter for an interior decorator which I had to end. My own personal work was being hindered and I was felt that something was missing. It was the passion of my own work that was lost. I started back on my own a month ago and my soul is again singing. Now that I'm back to my wonderful blog I thought I would share with you some of the pieces that I've worked on this past month...

A vintage Welhelm spinet piano desk. Stripped and refinished

 This vintage chest of drawers who's drawers and doors had to be rebuilt. Refinished

And this cabinet in our kitchen made completely out of reclaimed wood. 
It holds my Ball jars and baking supplies.

It feels so good to be back to myself. Working COMPLETELY for myself. 
Finding MY way in the world to send my art/work out. 
God has a way of teaching us which way we need to go
we just need to be open to hear his whispers.

Christmas Tour 2013

Good day to you. I hope you're having a good morning and staying warm
It's a toasty 80* here in Florida. It's hard to believe that Christmas is 2 weeks from today

I thought I would share with you some of the Christmas here at our house ...
I'm calling this year's decor Nature Meets Industrial "Found Junk"

And because money this year was REALLY tight for us, the only things I bought were
the tree, 2 poinsettias, 3 apples, a bag of cranberries and a can of snow

So enjoy ...
 Beware ... it's a little photo heavy
