He Is So Romantic

He Is So Romantic

A love story…. When Jon and I celebrated twenty-four years of marriage I began thinking about our 25th and asked if we could save and plan over the next year for a trip to Israel. What better way to celebrate enduring love than to go to the land of the Bible and soak in the […]

Let’s Copy One Another

Let’s Copy One Another

A few friends told me yesterday that they’re incorporating ideas from my style into their design, and I love that! I say, let’s copy one another, because, more than likely, I’ve copied the idea too! Like my friends, we get inspiration from blogs and social media posts. That’s why I share so readily the updates […]

Farmhouse Galley Kitchen

Farmhouse Galley Kitchen

When Jon and I help his customers prepare for the myriad of decisions they will make in designing their custom kitchen, I encourage them to tap into the wealth of inspiration on Pinterest. Someone probably combined the different elements being considered, and that takes the guesswork out of visualizing the end result. I’m pretty sure […]

My Design Influences

My Design Influences

I was walking along the shoreline at our neighborhood park and noticed with fresh eyes the commercial fishing boats tied up at their docks. The thought of a harbor came to mind and I somehow stumbled upon a new blog project called Harbor & Home. Being a lover of coastal interior design and beginning a […]

Celebrating Love

Do you have any plans for Valentine’s Day? I’m adding some special touches to the home in preparation of celebrating love with the people I cherish. The Floral + Eucalyptus Modern Wreath from my Etsy Shop adorns the barn door leading into the mudroom. I’m enchanted by the simplicity of this wreath and hanging it with […]

Creating a Farmhouse Style

Creating a Farmhouse Style

Are you making some updates to your interior design this winter? For some reason, the post-holiday, undecorated spaces in our homes beg for a refresh. Have you noticed that too? Jon and I want to change some of the furniture in our family room, but there will be no action until we agree upon style and […]

2019 Monthly Calendar

2019 Monthly Calendar

Every time I go into a paper store, I make a bee-line for pretty calendars and planners. I cannot help myself. I’ve even been known to purchase a new planner before my current one is completed. It’s a problem, really. I’ve been envisioning a handcrafted clipboard calendar for several weeks, so I’m happy to share […]

Christmas Blessings

Christmas Blessings

Wow! Holidays can be difficult, can’t they? The pain of absence runs deeper, and I know I’m not alone in reflecting on what’s lost while going through the motions of Thanksgiving and Christmas gatherings. But I love the spirit of continuing on and of creating new memories. And people tackle that in all manner of […]

Lucky Trip to Ireland

Lucky Trip to Ireland

I’m so incredibly thankful for the opportunity I had to travel to Ireland with my husband and daughter the week before Christmas. I was excited to spend time with family exploring new places. I also highly anticipated experiencing a European Christmas market for the first time. As soon as we dropped our luggage at Jacob’s Inn […]
