Not So Fast……..

  • December 31, 2020

I know everyone is excited to say good bye and good riddance to 2020, but………I’m one of “those” people who like to do the year in review–good, bad, & ugly.  Why you might ask?  It’s because that’s how we gain wisdom.  We learn from our mistakes, failures, fears, successes, and our unaccomplished dreams that we […]

“It’s a Wonderful Life”

  • December 19, 2020

I don’t know about you, but for me and my house we have to get into the Christmas spirit.   Set the stage–tea or cocoa, a cozy blanket, & our stash of favorite Christmas movies.  Christmas doesn’t officially start until we watch:  “It’s a Wonderful Life, Christmas Vacation, and Scrooge (the one featuring George C. […]

Have Yourself a Merry Covid Christmas

  • December 17, 2020

Here we are–December 2020–a far cry away from the March two week “flattening the curve” mandate.  We’re still living in “lockdown” prison unless you live in a “Free State”.  Who would of thought we’d be here……..failed businesses, people scrambling to pay the rent, surgeries cancelled, restaurants boarded up, schools closed and a game of face […]

Pilgrims Progress

  • November 21, 2020

Thanksgiving is my favorite holiday because of the unbelievable story of sharing a meal among new friends of totally different persuasions.  I don’t believe in coincidences……especially when it comes to the Pilgrims story of leaving a place of religious bondage to set sail through rough seas to a place unknown except to GOD.  What are […]

Covid 19 has ushered in what I have defined as “Zoom” Decor.  What’s that you say?  It’s the ability to instantly become Mrs. Kravitz the nosy neighbor on “Bewitched” (I know I’m dating myself).  Come on, lets be honest–you can’t help but find yourself checking your screen buddy’s house out. I’m sure you’ve heard the […]

Living in Coronaville

  • April 10, 2020

April 2020 The world has stood still!  Life as we knew it 3 weeks ago has suddenly vanished.  People are buried in their homes, instructed only to go out to shop for food and necessities.  The streets look like the rapture has occurred and I’ve been “left behind”.  Welcome to a life living with Corona […]

This past Christmas season brought me to an awakening………the entire shopping experience has been taken over by what I have named the “Stepford Wives Syndrome” (SWS).  No matter where you go across our fruited plain, you are met with shopping malls selling a prototype of national brands stocked to the gills with the exact same […]

Some Friendly Advice–STOP

  • March 2, 2020

In our 21st century world, it’s all about technology.  Our phones are now a permanent appendage, and God forbid we forget to take it with us.  Day ruined because we don’t have a lifeline to Google–the new replacement for God, our parents, and any other person with practical wisdom.   If you have ever needed […]

I think I was born at the wrong time and the wrong place!  I’m the gal that loves pulling out the china, crystal, Aunt Do’s sterling silver and white lines for Thanksgiving & Christmas dinner–no problem!   It makes me sad today to see that our modern society seems to have embraced an epidemic of casualness.  […]

Good Design To Me

  • November 30, 2019

Beauty in design emits an emotional response for me.  Good design is NOT expected.  Good design provides alternatives to challenges.  Good design is functional with a twist and incorporates the home or building’s “Architectural Personality”.   All these qualities built upon each other produce a warm and comfortable address that’s memorable for all that enter. My […]
