What I'm All About
I get inspiration from anywhere and everywhere, but mostly from my own head.
I love giving old things a new lease on life by fixing them up with some TLC and elbow grease.
I don't have one set style - I'm a self-proclaimed Eclectic through and through.
I have a huge infatuation with old furniture, particularly chairs and dressers.
I'm not above stopping by the side of the road on trash night to pick up some treasures.
I have an extensive tool collection.
I need a bigger house to hold all of my stuff.
I collect everything - I'm not kidding. Teacups are the biggest, expanding past the 50 range. But new "collections" sprout up all the time.
I usually have at least a million projects all going at once.
I'm messy, unorganized, sporadic in decision-making, and can plan an entire room in one evening.
I love color. No beiges or browns for this girl.
I don't follow the rules. Design is about how it makes you feel, not about what the big shots say is the "correct" way to decorate a room.
My house doesn't look like a magazine cover...and I like it that way.
I'm a firm believer that every piece of anything in your house should be important in some way. Whether it has a background story, a history, or you just absolutely love it. There is no reason to have something that just takes up space.
I can't read/watch/peruse or even entertain the idea of a crafty project right before bed. I will be up forEVER plotting how and when I will take that thing down!
