Hello, thanks for stopping by! I am an enthusiastic individual who enjoys expanding and sharing my knowledge, findings, techniques and distributing anything that could potentially be of benefit to others. I am passionate about creating beautiful and inviting spaces in my home and garden, turning ho hum to gorgeous and having fun doing it. While style is important to me, it is my pragmatism, a “can-do” spirit and an appreciation of both quality and function that is my greatest inspiration. The use of materials, textures, colors and above all, ingenious ideas and solutions are what keep the doors of creativity and inventiveness open for me. Together, let’s explore the full spectrum of possibilities and see where the road of genteel rustic elegance might take us!
