Welcome to our new home...


Well, here it is...your first sneak peek at our new property in the country! No pictures of the house yet as I have many plans for it and want to share before and after pictures as rooms become completed, but as you can see this view from our front porch needs no improvement on my part! 








We have 93 acres, so over the summer there will be lots more pictures coming...

Wonderful white...


Today at the new house I'm painting things white. This tends to horrify people as the majority of what I'm covering in white is high quality cedar. Anyone out there who has painted woodwork knows what I'm talking about...people look at you like you're nuts. You want to paint wood?! Yes!!

What I find really amusing about this reaction is that most people assume this must mean I don't like wood. Wrong! I love wood....I love it so much that I choose to cover some woods so that other ones can shine. White is the perfect backdrop...it makes color pop and it makes wood furniture spring to new life. It also makes everything look brighter and more expansive.

So I'm off to paint more more cedar window boxes white (and make the windows look twice as big)...here is some wonderful white for your own inspiration...







Now go forth and paint things white!

I'm back...

Hello all! No, I did not drop off the edge of the world....

I am finally in my long-awaited new country home!! Yesterday we finally managed to get internet hooked up, but we are still camping out in the family room surrounded by boxes and piles of furniture as we await Monday and the installation of the amazing new hardwood we discovered. Of course, my camera charger is still somewhere in the black hole of an unpacked and unlabeled box, so I have been unable to take lots of pictures and upload them yet, but very soon I will be able to show you all this gorgeous country paradise we have been so fortunate to move to. 

For now, I'll leave you with this great article from 1st Dibs about Laserow Antiques. I wish I could jet off to this shop to pick out some treasures for the new house. That clock would look just perfect in my dining room...
