Can you believe this wallpaper design is hand-crafted from stickers? Yes, stickers! The children's stickers you buy on a roll or by the sheet. The brilliant artist/designer is Payton Turner who founded a company with her husband called Flat Vernacular. Payton has real talent for composing little vignettes from stickers and creating these wonderful clever patterns! It 's one of those ideas where you hear yourself saying, "why didn't I think of that?" For more info on Payton and her designs, go to www.flatvernacular.

Little words bring big inspiration

Anyone who knows me, knows I LOVE quotes. I like to have positive words around me at all times. Since graduation time is among us, I thought I would post some of my favorites! I think these are all appropriate for the graduating person stepping out on a new journey!

Refreshing the old



One of the projects that I have been working on is creating, photographing and posting items for my new Etsy store. I have MANY odds and ends from antique auctions and thrift stores that I needed to "re-purpose" so I could sell. This will be a on-going process because I still have lots more items to "refresh". We are still in the initial stage but you can check us out @

I know I have been a little slack on blog updates lately...I've been working on several projects at once while fighting a severe head cold. But, I am happy to report that I am feeling much better this week! So, I thought I would post a quick update on these latest finished furniture pieces. The blue gray cabinet has a dark brown top with glass knobs and is currently for sale ($365.00) in Blacklion. Dimensions are 31.5" width, 31 " height and 15" deep. The beige tan cabinet with darker khaki brown top has metal ring pulls. This piece will be delivered to Blacklion next week once I clear a space for it.  Feel free to e-mail me if you have questions on either piece.
