Quiet Weekend? I Don't Think So ....
It was supposed to be a quiet weekend.
A kicking-back weekend to
catch up on my reading for my book club

pillows that went with a beaded
ethnic pillow I had.

is so cozy and much more conducive
to great conversation during
dinners with friends.
My plaster fireplace mantle is from the sets
of the Shaw Festival which was a fabulous
buy. It is probably one of my fav
pieces of furniture. Of course,
a home is not a home without
I will show you some of the changes
in the other rooms once the
sun cooperates with
Are you a room changer?
