where did February go?

February 27, 2009

Every day I tried to find some extra time to spend here on my blog! Well…. as you can see that just never happened. I have spent the month working, designing and finally getting the taxes in order AND more home projects. I am quite addicted to changing up my own environment as sort of a test lab. I know I’ve mentioned that I am a horrible photographer so please bare with me on these pictures I recently took.

I decided to really lighten my interior and I chose:CIMG0479 CIMG0480 

Benjamin Moore   Spanish White, Manchester Tan and Cloud White.

I’ve always wanted to add a little pink somewhere so I finally used it in Patrick’s old bedroom.CIMG0491 CIMG0492

Benjamin Moore   Old Country w/ Alexandria Beige I’m not sure I like it!

Looks a little like Baskin Robbins I think.

Give me your thoughts on this!

I’ve been asked by several people where do I create… Well here it is… AND I really didn’t clean it up. Can you tell???

               I plan on being around a lot more next month!


a splurge

February 7, 2009


I’ve had my nose to the grindstone lately and feeling a real lack of creativity. Seems like so many loose ends right now and lots of family stuff too!

So I just had to have them. Lions that is… I’ve had my eye on these beauties for some time and decided they needed to come and guard my house. The detail and patina are superb. I have them sitting on the back patio so I can enjoy them more while I’m in the kitchen.CIMG0472 CIMG0473

I’m always drawn to lions and I’m wondering if it’s because I’m a Leo? At any rate..These are mine and I love them! Keeping the economy going.

I hope to gain my creative self soon it’s been tough going.

Thanks Colleen for finding these handsome giants AND for lugging them into my car!
