Great kitchen redo

I stumbled upon this kitchen on Pinterest and after investigating it further I realized it was a redo.  The before pictures are here, and I feel the new kitchen is about perfect.

The renovation was done by interior designer  Carol Reed in Ontario Canada.

Fall tree well decorations

I was out this weekend at the Huffines Art Fair in Richardson, Texas, and couldn't resist taking pictures of these adorable fall decorations around the trees.  Pumpkins, mum, and kale add so much!

Kate Spade's Kitchen

Kate Spade's kitchen makes me smile.  It is not your traditional kitchen, but has such an inviting feel to it.  I love the floors, appliances, art, etc... LOVE it all!

Love...David Bates

David Bates is a well know artist from Dallas, Texas and earned his M.F.A. from Southern Methodist University in 1978.  I just love the bold colors and style that he paints.

Locally, his work can be found at the Talley Dunn Gallery, formerly Dunn and Brown Gallery.

Curb appeal makeover

A significant overhaul is worth the cost and time with results like these. Here, designer Nancy Fishelson's tiny stoop was reborn as a wooden deck that spans the front of the house, expanding her outdoor living space.


Altering the direction of the stairs to the side – a dramatic structural change – makes for a grander entrance that also adds privacy. The lush foliage further softens the look, while a fresh coat of white paint unites the new porch with the house.  WOW!

Etsy Friday Favorite, Friendship Bracelets

This is a little bit of a different version of the typical friendship bracelet, but these were to lovely to pass up.  ASU student/designer Ayofemi weaves cotton and chain and finishes each bracelet with a gold plated feather:


Bright colors and simple lines.  Ayofemi’s line of jewelry is absolutely adorable.
