simply gorgeous rooms (and clothes).

My dining room transformation is complete. Mom and Dad came to mount the brackets and rods today. Then they hung the curtains (that mom had made). I am absolutely beside myself at how the room has been rethought and redone! I have to send a humongous SMOOCH out to Brad Russell, the designer who guided me to the right colors, furniture, and draperies. Now I think I will sleep in the dining room.
Dad at work.

This pair should have a show on HGTV. Thanks Mom and Dad!!!

One of my Christmas presents this year was a sewing weekend at my parents' place. I made the 2 blouses below for the spring and summer. They involved a little more detail than I normally tolerate in a pattern. But they have a little more sass than my usual sewing project results. :)




  1. OMG. You need to post Before & After photos of this room. It is unbelievable. BEAUTIFUL!!

  2. That room is amazing. Brad is good. How did he make all your stuff disappear?

  3. Very nice. What did you make for me? Do you want to see my color swatches?


I love to hear what people think. Leave a comment!
