Designing for Life

Kari and Kijsa are at it again. Those two talented sisters are hosting a "share your own personal design for life" party. So, I decided to give a glimpse of one of my very favorite spots in my home.
It's the Kitchen table.

This table is special for many reasons. My husband got this table for me on my birthday a few years ago. While I slept into the night, my sweet hubby stayed up very late putting it together, so that he could surprise me in the morning! This table is a place where family meets...where meals are served...where coffee is consumed...where the Bible is read...where games are played...where conversation flows...where tears are shed...where discussions abound...where joys are shared. I love this place, because life is truly lived out right here in these chairs!

I consider my style an eclectic mix...I love casual elegance...nothing pretentious...just easy living.

One of my favorite items here in the Kitchen is this collection of coffee mugs.

I pull one off the wall nearly every morning to begin my day with a steaming cup of java! There's just nothing like it first thing in the morning! :)

My House is Sparkling

...yes, my house is sparkling! No, not sparkling clean...just sparkling. That's because I've been busy busy busy making these

...and there is glitter EVERYWHERE!
I am personalizing and selling "bow-wow baubles" this holiday season. My first event was yesterday - Bark in the Park! I sold enough to cover my event donation... and then some! I don't know if I'll actually make any money, but I'm having fun... and when you catch me in the right light, even I sparkle all over!!

Oh...and for those of you who can't live without a personalized pet ornament for that pampered pooch, just click on the little envelope and e-mail me! I'll send you all the details! :)
