Oh, Evie, I can’t believe how beautiful this room looks! And cozy. You did such an incredible job – I don’t think I’d ever want to leave that room.

Thank you, Susan!! I have been enjoying it ever since!!

I really, really love that chair.
And I’m thinking it’s high time I carved out a corner of our house to claim as my own. Thanks for the inspiration!

Cassadie, you should TOTALLY do that. It’s so peaceful to have some space just for you!! And thank you for telling me you like the chair, too. :) It’s nice to know I’m not the only one!

What a wonderful space you have! I’m very envy of everyone who actually own an entire room just to make things. i used to have one too, but now that my mom came to live with me my studio became her room…and i ended up sewing and drawing in one little corner in my bedroom, like when I was a teen and still lived with my parents. but it’s ok as long as there is a tiny corner where i can do my things, right?

Thank you! Yes! I think the biggest point is just for each of us to acknowledge that we all deserve SOME space that is ours and ours alone. The world is so crazy some days that we all need somewhere to escape from that and indulge in whatever passions stir us! Thank you for your comment, Bobbi!

Evie, it looks great! What a fun crafting space.

Kitchen Remodel and Addition – We made it!

Back in 2000, we lived in a different house and had our kitchen there remodeled.  It took about 8 weeks and my oldest son was just about to turn one year old.  It was a very stressful experience and one I wasn’t ready to endure again anytime soon!  Good thing we waited 14 years before […]

It’s beautiful, and I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE the paint colour!

Thank you, Sue!

Tea is my thing

Drinking a hot cup of tea has become my morning ritual.  It has been something I’ve done from time-to-time since I was a little girl but, in the last couple of years, I have developed a true reverence for it.  I find that I need my daily cuppa in order to feel like the day […]

Irish tea is obviously the best :p although i dont like barrys. I like tetley or twinings irish breakfast tea. I know i’m a terrible irish person, drinking english tea! I love your cup. It’s a gorgeous set of colours

Thanks for stopping by, Claire! I think tea is very personal and goes with each person’s individual tastes. My British grandmother loves Tetley tea! I drink Twining’s, too. Here I’d be considered a bad Southerner because I don’t drink the generally accepted Southern brand of tea. LOL My sister gave me that cup, it came from what she and I joke should be our second home, Target. ;)
