Thank you Grace!

While I was unplugged a couple of weeks ago ... and Catching a Breath I picked up the March InStyle Magazine.

And Found Grace!

This is It!

You know I've been wanting this.

So Grace gave me the inspiration to move forward with my Buffalo Plaid.  
The Yellow and Red and Black spoke to me. 

This sweet girl that sat in our living room for years and she just got all gussied up and Moved to the Kitchen.


A Pop of Yellow Happiness is keeping the kitchen fresh
and even sunny with snow still in the window!


Window treatments to be made ... and yes, I am ignoring the fact that there is a door behind the sofanowbanquette.
Because I don't want the door there.
I have dismissed it.
Show you how we do that as the kitchen progresses!



It's all in the Details.


Thank You Grace.

How do you like me now? ORC Update!




Linda, prompted by Elisa ... is doing a little espionage work to see if we actually have done anything different to our original ORC rooms.

Here's my Round Up
Go Here to check out all the other Rooms 
Made Beautiful during the ORC!

My First ORC... for a young family ... while the pieces are the same in their family room, it is now filled with their love!





My Second ORC ... turning an unused eating area into a Keeping Room for a young family to gather, wait for mom to finish cooking, and read books. The only change they made?  A new puppy!!


My Third ORC, here's where things start to change.
My Office Illusion ... 

What's different ... this illusion was ripped down and here is my NEW reality and it is NO illusion!  Definitely a contender for the April Link Up!




10' X 7' ... remnants of a Dark Room.
All Mine.

My Fourth ORC I joined in the ORC Link Up Party ... 
Our Powder Room.


What's different ... we Moved.  I am now faced with this.  I cannot even call this a Powder Room.  Another Contender for the April ORC Link Up.






I'd like your Opinion ... 
Which one would you like to see me tackle in April?

Powder Bathroom OR my No Illusion Office?
And, YOU can help me Focus!

Plus ... Pick a room and join the Link Up. Here's HOW.
You need some Motivation?  This is It!

It's a "Bunny Affair" GiveAway!

Do you have a "Design Mentor"?
Without a doubt, Bunny Williams is my Inspiration.  I have always admired her style, her sense of the Traditional ...  and how she keeps it fresh, NEVER boring or stale.

And her gracious ways that seem to draw me into her interior spaces.

For Christmas I received this,


But here's the deal.  I already own a copy.  Now, I have read this book over and over and over again.  It is dog-eared from use, I practically know every room in it by heart, and I wouldn't want it any other way!

Some of my favorite rooms ... 


Bunny has lived in this house for over 30 years.  I understand the longevity and how the house is such a part of her.


I got to meet her last year ... DreamDay!!


For one reason or another, the longest I have never lived in a house is for 12 years.


Just when I feel the basics are covered and the fun is ready to happen ... I've started a new adventure.


I don't know how long we'll be at Peckham Hill but I am Starting the Affair!

And here's the FUN ... My Gift to YOU!

In celebration of HOME and Spring peeking around the corner, I'd rather share the love and send it to YOU than tromp to the Post Office just to return it to Amazon!

Follow me on my blog 
AND
Leave a comment telling me who is Your 
Design "Mentor"

It might be fun to explore all our Inspiration!

And you'll be entered ... Winner announced on March 14!
