Dreaming of Olives Trees, Fig Trees and Lavender

We are receiving a major snow storm in Oklahoma today so while I am dreaming of being outside planting a garden that looks like the Tuscan countryside I will leave you instead with some images I have collected for the job I am doing now. Carpe Diem!

Getting It Together

I have spent this week scouring my resources trying to get all of my ducks in a row. I am working on a .....Tuscan kitchen! Here are a few pieces my client and I are looking at for her incredible kitchen.

The Lord Does Provide

After quitting my full-time job, I am glad to say that my youngest daughter's grades have improved and my family had gotten "back to normal". But I was feeling the pinch of the economy and missing my creative outlet...decorating. I did not renew my lease at the upscale boutique I was renting from due to the extremely high rent and wanting to rent something closer to home, with no luck of that happening I decided to sell my display pieces on craigs list. I met a lady interested in some of my things and she has hired me to help her finish decorating her home. I met with her last week and her home is one of the most beautiful I have seen. She has such great taste. She lives only 2 miles from where my shop was (small world). This is my kind of job!(plus she has a few friends that need my services as well) I'll keep you posted with lots of pics. Right now we are deciding on fabric. I feel like when I put my family and their needs first that the good Lord blessed me with being able to work around my kid's schedules doing something I love!!!
