Passing It On…

Hi gang!  Today I'm posting over at Fancy Little Things about "green decorating" so I hope you'll pop over and say hello! Remember this? Well, I bundled with love the second canvas from KariAnne... And sent it across the country to a gal who has blessed me immeasurably in the past year. I "met" her almost exactly a year ago when she won a Willow House giveaway on my blog.  We struck up an online friendship and she invited me … [Read more...]

Hard Working Decor

Organization challenges me daily and no where am I more challenged than in my home office.  After all, it's the hub of my home, where I write, and where I run my SLAH business.  But after many stops and starts, I've realized that sterile organizational systems are not for me.   What works for my creative and over-active mind is organization with style.  Fortunately, my SLAH business has afforded me many beautiful … [Read more...]
