Crocheted Half Circle Rug

When I finished the rug, DH said, “What do you think of it?” What do I think?  I love it!  I hugged it when you weren’t looking.  I did dances around it, took off my socks so I could really feel it under my feet.  Knowing how he feels about crochet, I only said, “I think it […]

Not a Swimming Pool

But I’m excited. Here’s a before shot: This is actually a picture of the twin closet in the adjoining room. But they were set up the same. I painted it ultra pure white, even the ceiling. It helps reflect the most amount off light in the windowless space, and shows the clothes in their true […]

Office Inspiration

I’m so thankful to have the space above the garage for my office.  It’s a large room with a triangle ceiling and very little wall space.  This is a recipe for creativity when it comes to finding places to put things. Here’s another triangle shaped room.  I love the way they built shelves around the […]
