I’m always so inspired by what other creative people do !



  1. Love those dresser pulls. I did the same thing for a barrister bookcase with glass doors that had belonged to my late husband. Decided I needed something to hold some of my treasures in my bedroom but disliked the small brass knobs. Found 8 fat ceramic spiral knobs in the perfect shade of green and the bookcase is on its way to being a statement piece. Next step is to paint in the interior a soft shade of tangerine (currently using construction paper for inspiration). Love the bucket shelves – great idea for the laundry room which is off the garage and is the first room I step into when I enter my house. And that kitchen! Wow! Checked Susie’s blog and her kitchen is almost exactly the layout of mine. What a beautiful job she did with it. My ultimate kitchen reno will be on a much smaller scale but what an inspiration. Thanks for that extra.
