 Good evening, everyone!  I have had a jam packed week and I'm topping it off with two workshops over the next couple of days!  So, sitting down for a few minutes to browse for favorites was a bit of a rest from all of the painting, stripping (upholstery) and preparing for the upcoming events.  There were some really lovely pieces shared, as always.  Thanks to everyone for putting your work out  (read more …)

 I suspect the warm weather has prodded some of you to paint furniture and hit the thrift stores, because last week's FFF was packed with great pieces.   I was all geared up for spring, but now we're expecting 3-5" tomorrow.  UGH!  I'm trying to enjoy this last bit of winter, though, instead of looking at it as an inconvenience!  Hopefully the rest of you will be enjoying lovely, DIY-friendly  (read more …)

Well, we're enjoying another day off of school and more of this...   ...as I'm sure many of you can relate.  We haven't had any huge snows in our area, but a lot of moderate snows and really cold temperatures, so we haven't seen the grass in weeks.  The snow on our front yard is piled up about 3' high.  I'm looking forward to spring.  Sigh. I started looking through the links from last week  (read more …)

Sorry about the glitch we experienced last week during FFF hopefully it'll be smooth sailing tonight! Today was busy and productive, as we were getting ready for another workshop in the studio tomorrow and filming some Design Ramblings segments.  I must say that I enjoy the "creative" days more than the ones with a full schedule of deadline-oriented tasks, but that's how businesses are  (read more …)

 Good evening, all!  Today was one of those hectic days that involved dropping lunch off at the school for my son and a meeting that went longer than anticipated and I have felt behind all day.  I did film the final segment of the upholstery series, so the rest of the videos will be posted in the next few days.  Tonight I have a date with my video editing software to make that happen.  Before I  (read more …)

 Good evening, everyone!  I found some really great links from last week to share.  It's always hard to narrow the choice down to three favorites, but it was even harder than usual.  The ones I picked this week really jumped out at me, though.  Without further delay, here they are... I love everything about this makeover by Kim of Tidbits & Twine.  You wouldn't believe that this was a  (read more …)
