Fairy Tale

My husband sent me this quote today. I thought you might like it as much as I do


There is an exhibit right now at the wonderful Victoria and Albert Museum in London on Grace Kelly. My husband got to meet her once in Florida when he was on spring break in college. Actually it wasn't that big a deal to him as his roommate at the time was her son. The exhibit features clothes from her Hollywood days and the clothes made for her wedding trousseau.  I know a little girl in Glasgow who better make some time to go see this so she can tell me all about it!!

Inspiration for a Room

I am working on a darling room for a darling high school young lady. These are some of the inspiration pieces.
We are painting a small armoire in these colors.

This is some Kathryn Ireland fabric we are using.

This is how we might upholster the chair.
The bed has bird finials. I will show you more as we finish it up.

Fishing for the Words

For those of you who are in the midst of a trial right now.... know you are loved. Storms often end with a rainbow of joy.

I wish I had a huge zoom lens, but I at least did manage to capture a peek of a little family early this morning. They were so cute staring my way for a long time. I wasn't expecting them so it took me forever to get the camera ready and by that time....they were headed home.
