A little peek of one of the bedrooms…….

We have been making progress on the upstairs renovation but it has been very slow going. I finally have one of the bedrooms put back together but it is far from being finished as far as decorating goes. I thought you might enjoy a little peek to see what direction I am going in there?!?!  Have a great week………….

The minimalist me…..


Lately I find myself eliminating more and more clutter around the house. This time it all started with a small change in the living room by removing some Pussy Willow stems from an olive jar that were leftover from the Christmas photo shoot. While they were pretty they were messy……always dropping the white fuzzy things when bumped and of course Simon aka Sir Licks A Lot found them very appealing and would always gobble them right up! This  is not good for a senior dog with a delicate digestive system so out they finally went!!!  After re-arranging a few things the prints next to the door were no longer working.  Once I took them down I knew they were the wrong size and I needed something smaller for the wall. Suddenly I remembered these mirrors from Wisteria that I have loved since the very first time they appeared in their catalog.

The mirrors are called Stations of  the cross…..they were inspired by a grouping of fourteen pieces found in churches across Europe that depict the final hours of Jesus Christ. I love the meaning behind them which makes them so special!

We are still working on the project upstairs….progress is very slow! I keep telling myself it will all be worth it in the end but sometimes it is very hard to see the light at the end of the tunnel when things aren’t going so well!!!!! Hopefully I will have something to show you soon that isn’t too scary! LOL
