I love my house. It is just the right size for Steve and I plus the dogs. It’s kind of dusty and cluttered at the moment; I like it much better when it’s clean around here.
I usually decorate with sage-y greens and browns but I have painted my kitchen and powder room Rafia from Ralph Lauren and my guest room Dill Pickle from by Benjamin Moore. I know Dill Pickle sounds like a really drab green but it’s really a bright sunny greenish-yellow.
I have some favorite things I’d like to share with you. I have a small collection of Sid Dickens Memory Blocks. I love the architectural details of each. They look like little chunks that have fallen off buildings. I also love my Gracious Goods ceramic pieces; I had to convince Steve the canisters were just for looks… I’ve gotta get the chip and dip tray.
I collect dragonflies, angels, clocks, keys, rusty things, tiny leather coin purses, and different bits of odds and ends.
Here are some of my favorite things:
The window above my kitchen sink.
A beautiful Madonna from my Gramma.
My powder room… It’s off-limits to Steve.
A gift from my mom.
Christmas gift to myself two years ago.
I usually don’t buy stuff full price from Pottery Barn
but I couldn’t wait for this piece to go on sale.
Cheap-o mirror but I love the shape of it.
Special treasure: the mantle clock that always
chimed at my grandparent’s house
