A Bit of Color is Always Fun!

My Blog Spot
Here I am in my writing spot wondering what would be fun to share. This kitchen is a good place to be… easy to daydream and also a place where I get a lot done. Taxes are currently crowding my table, piles of receipts and reminders of 2012. But I am shoving all that aside… Taxes are no fun. I’ll share a bit of this space with you instead.

A bit of color is always fun, Red and black gives my kitchen a cottage feel with a bit of drama.
I have an open pantry with my dishes, that way my dishes become part of what I enjoy visually.
There are all kinds of ways to put your style into the place you love….what do you love to look at when you are home?

Been away but back today!

Hello Again!

I have been seriously distracted for the last couple of months and my blog has been ignored.

But It is a new year and I am back excited about writing and photography. I have been surprised and somewhat dismayed to discover that I really didn’t need to up grade my camera.

I was convinced that I needed a DSLR and I don’t regret getting it but it really showed me that I was already taking great pictures with my Canon G12.
I enjoy the new camera and especially have fun with the macro lens but as far as image quality and ease of use I was more than fine with the G12.
Sometimes you have to do it to actually believe it.

Can't resist the light The photo here is my favorite place to write…actually I always gravitate to this spot in my kitchen. It’s a great window seat and I can see out my front door from here as well. When family comes for dinner we always find ourselves crowded round this little table and laughing about our lives. Kitchens are like that…. in everyones homes it seems.

I have moved this beautiful wall with me from house to house...I love it.

This beautiful window from a Baldwin Building that was torn down has traveled with me from house to house. The painting is by Suzy Papanikolas


This house has been a fun journey in creating a space that feels good. A combination of color and light that always makes me glad to be home at the end of a day and tickled when I have a day off to settle in and enjoy it.

Perhaps I will post a journey through this sweet little house. I have broken my ankle and will be home for a month… Why don’t you join me!
