Wild Flower Arrangements

 One of my favorite parts about staying at the Colorado house is being surrounded by natural terrain. I work in Irvine, CA and I completely despise that city. The main reason is how they've destroyed any natural terrain and have over-landscaped so bad that you wouldn't know what a native plant is if you stepped... Continue Reading →


So, remember when I told you I went to Paris? Yeah... that was a few months ago. I'm just NOW getting around to sharing! Well, I won't bore you with too many details. (I didn't get to do 3/4ths of what I wanted to do!) Here are a few shots we captured... My first hour of... Continue Reading →

Industrial Metal Wall File

House and Garden 1929

Next project!

Okay, projects are piling up and now I'm on to the next one. But this is good because it means I can paint multiple items at once rather than setting up at different times.
