Small Changes in our Home and a New Camera

Remember when I did Tuesday Tours of our apartment in January and February? A few little things have changed in the apartment since then, so I thought I’d share some updated photos with you. I purchased a DSLR camera recently (the Canon EOS Rebel T6), so the quality of my photos should start to improve.  I…… Continue reading Small Changes in our Home and a New Camera

Our Laundry Room/Maid’s Bathroom

When we first moved into our apartment, 17 years ago, we didn’t have a laundry room. I would have to schlep down to our building’s basement and do the laundry in our building’s communal laundry room. Although it is a very nice and clean laundry room, with ample washers and dryers, it was inconvenient. This…… Continue reading Our Laundry Room/Maid’s Bathroom

Chair Options for the Dining Room

Don’t tell anyone, but I am committing a huge decorating sin in my dining room. I have a dining room set that has a table with matching chairs and a buffet!

A Spring or Easter Table Setting

Today, I am sharing a table setting that I created for spring. I used what I had on hand with the addition of some fresh Forsythia branches from the grocery store and some bird nests that I picked up at Michaels. I like to have a color scheme in mind before I start planning a…… Continue reading A Spring or Easter Table Setting

Tuesday Tour: Daughter’s Room

This week, I am sharing our 13-year old daughter’s bedroom. This has been her room for the last 10 years, and, as with my son’s room, very little has changed! The color scheme is pink, green and white, and I attempted to create a shabby-chic-inspired space. The room is painted Sherwin-Williams Sagey, which is a…… Continue reading Tuesday Tour: Daughter’s Room
