Good Read

My Sister-In-Law sent me this article this morning, perfect timing.  Getting out the door every morning running no less than 10 minutes behind is a small victory every day. This morning that feat proved to be even harder with a cranky, cranky, colored ALL over the wall toddler.  Good thing I have pictures like this saved on my phone that make me instantly forget I aged 5 years in 1 hour.

If One Space Is Good, Two Is Better.....Right?

For the time being I have decided to take on a second space in conjunction with my current space (#15) in Interiors and Antiques.  Another title for this post could be, "The One Where She Lost Her Mind".  Craziness, a whole other level of craziness.  The second space is in Interiors @ Pepper Place.  I am still getting moved in but so far, so good.  I am not sure I will be able to keep both places up but I am excited to give it a try, at least for 6 months.  
If you are in Pepper Place, especially for the Farmer's Market please come by!

It's Here

Summer is here.  This weekend was the official start of longer days, heat to great you when you walk outside, the pool, cookouts, flip flops...watermelon.  I am a summer baby.  I am as happy in the water and scorching heat as any other place and time of year.    While unfortunately summer does not bring with it a summer break I am going to take additional time off to be with Henry.  I hope you all had a wonderful Memorial Day weekend.  I especially want to say thank you to those men and women who have and are bravely serving our country.  You deserve more than I could ever write here.

Hello Friday

 Hello Friday, so good to see you.  It has been on wild and crazy week.  I am beginning to feel like I say that every week but this week I mean it.  I am a planner.  A logistics queen.  I start each day with the schedule down to the last detail- perfectly planned out.  It seems though that each and every day the world has something else planned.  But I survived and today starts four days off with my boys.  I think I am actually going to delete my work e-mail off my phone until Tuesday to help my mini stay-cation.  
 (Henry discovered a new FAVORITE toy- fabric books, go figure)

Don't worry though, not everyone in our household has had such a hard week.
I hope you have a wonderful, safe and peaceful weekend.

*not sure why these pictures are stretching but like I mentioned above-nothing ever goes as planned.

A Different Kind Of Art

A while back a client asked me to do something with a collection of antique barn hinges her father had given her.  She was speaking my language.  The original thought was to make a collage on the wall itself but I was drawn to the idea of placing them on a single piece- mostly for the wall's sake.  
 I will tell y'all this was a LABOR.of.LOVE.  As I said on Instagram, emphasis on LOVE.  I will say, it has been a while since something has kept me up at night but this did.  The sheer weight of the hinges gave me fits.  If you were to turn this board around you would be astonished by the supports.  
I have to thank my installer who I called on multiple occasions to ask him if he was sure this crazy concoction  could be hung.  He reminded me we had hung much heavier....and crazier in the past.  
Along the way- board created, now onto the order and how to attach.

He was right but still, there was something about this piece that had really gotten to me.  I think it was a.) I love anything old and interesting- hinges?!?!?! yes please.  b.) It is sentimental and I am sap. c.) I have the utmost respect for this client and appreciate her faith in my creative process.
There was one more piece that was too large to fit so it is on another wall.  The rest of the space is looking good as well, including the floor.  Pictures day.

Last month I made a small photo shoot with one of my favorite domestic brands INES atelier for their gorgeous jewelry collection! You know how much I love these type of photos, so it was a real pleasure creating them! Great decorating, interior skills from the designer of INES atelier - Ines Jankovic and my "snap" finger were perfect match, and I totally love how it turned out!
