Decorator Extraordinaire


Thanks to this favorite auntie and her understanding of Feng Shui and ability to improve the Qi in my house, I now have a home with things on the walls and furniture in the right places to make the flow inviting, peaceful and relaxing.

What a difference. Here is a glimpse of the magic she arranged in the four days she was here.





  • Pardon the wrinkled curtains, blurry photos and bad lighting.
  • The small grey chair with a funny yellow pillow is just a place holder until we find the perfect thrift store chair replacement and make a new cushion to go on top.
  • Sewing projects now include: sheers for window with yellow curtains, drapes for large window behind dark brown couch, and pillows in interesting fabrics for said brown couch
And since a request was made (Liz) for "a picture of Henry in the kitchen" (lol), I had to oblige. Can you say oak, oak and more oak? It's growing on me. Again, pardon all the junk on the counter in the distance and the mismatched towels hung so beautifully on the oven door. Add to the sewing list some roman shades or something for these awesome windows that are not so awesome right now covered in dirty mini-blinds. They bring in a lot of light, which I love, so I have to find just the right fabric that won't block the light and also won't be too loud on such a large window.

And now I am officially done posting pictures of the house, with the exception that I will hopefully have some of those sewing projects complete and ready to share in the next few months. Thanks for all your nice comments and interest!

Is your sister available to come to Oklahoma next weekend?

It looks great!! You have an eye for classic pieces of furniture. I love your end/side pieces and your couch.
Where's your couch from Christmas?

You are inspiring me-my house is still almost completely undecorated.

Looks great, bean! And that curtain rod and curtains look VERY familiar... ;-)

I guess you can borrow my assistant anytime. Or wait, am I borrowing your sister MOST of the time? I can't keep that straight. Hmmph.

I love it! I was scrolling down and happened to see the first picture of the front room before I started reading the text, and I swear I thought it was out of a magazine. So cute! And I'm so jealous of the kitchen. Can you say space, space and more space!
