We need to paint, change out the hardware and hang these french doors that we found at our friendly neighborhood ReStore. We've called an electrician to hang these beauties on either side of the french … [Continue reading...]

In this space I pictured a large mirror above a beautiful […]

ENTERING A NEW STAGE ~ Goodbye swing set


Being in this club called parenting, we are all in a constant state of transition. From newborn and all the wonders and stresses that brings along, to toddler and constantly on the move, safety is a big factor. As the child becomes more independent, tantrums and “I’ll do it myself” are frequently experienced. Beginning school and losing […]
