for my hubby...

"To make the right choices in life, you have to get in touch with your soul. To do this, you need to experience solitude, which most people are afraid of, because in the silence you hear the truth and know the solutions." -Deepak Chopra

I hope you can find some time for quiet reflection.

Decorating Inspiration

The latest entry in my collection of decoupaged tea lights. I used vintage dress pattern to cover these. I think they turned out pretty good!

The Perfect Room

I LOVE this room. If I could marry it, I would. The colors, the comfort, the bookshelves, the gorgeous windows... oooh, I think I just drooled a bit.

I really enjoy making these - it's fun to flip through the old books looking for cool images. This book is really fragile and the pages brittle. I kept tearing the paper, especially when removing some of the back. I decided to sell them anyway, because the images are really cool.

What letter shall I do next?
