IM BACK! With a Sneak Peak + a Special Announcement

Image by nathaliebearden.com/
Hi All!  It's time I come back and have a seat, dont'cha think?/??  Well, I hope you're as happy to have me back, as I am to be back.  Sometimes life just gets in the way, but I've made it a goal to keep up with my musings on lifestyle things for the rest of the season and beyond.

So, you remember my first commercial design project I talked about a few months ago?  Here's one of the first images ever released of the completed project.  I found everything from flea markets and ebay and I had them re-designed with a soft, playful color scheme.  The shoe display case, pictured above, is a reclaimed wine rack from the old Riverside Inn...just before the old building was demolished.  I love being "green" that way.  It's not only good for our environment, but it's more unique than anything purchased new.  I put a few local craftsmen to work on some of these projects as well.  I guess you could call that Aid to the Artisans too!  I hope you'll visit the sweet, locally owned, Jellybeans.  It's a real treat.

Now, for all of you who don't know me here, locally.  I have some big news to share.  I'm opening a design showroom/studio!  Just up the street from my home.  It's going to be called...little drum roll please...

Pickwick House.  My dream come true.  Nerve racking, big yes.  That's partly why I have not posted here in a long while.
 
I chose the name Pickwick House for two reasons.

1.  The old store front is located on the prettiest old maple tree-lined, neighborhood Pickwick Street.
2.   I grew up on Pickwick and now live next door to the home I grew up in, so it seemed only fitting   and true to not only me, but to this neighborhood.  It will hopefully be a place for everyone, as was my childhood home...growing up in a family of nine kids.  Our house was grand central station.

Starting out in mid-January {rough guess}, I'll be open by appointment and by chance.  I am really working forward to hosting events, workshops, art-walks, and of course, my main babies...booking for room makeovers/home-design/events!

Looking forward to connecting with all of you, locals, here, face to face...finally!  And, for those who live beyond!

I am so stinking excited and humbled by this new endeavor, that I never thought I'd have. Thanks to all of you, I'm here!

Love to you all.
