"Once we clearly acknowledge the soul, we can learn to hear it's cries. - Dallas Willard, Renovation Of The Heart."

It takes courage to pursue our dreams. It takes time and patience to unearth buried treasure. But I believe with all my heart that we must do both.

Home pictures






In between ironing napkins,

washing slipcovers,

washing glass hurricanes

and getting things pulled together

I thought I would post a few pictures of the top of my old plantation desk.

It's in the dining room, and we use it as a buffet.

Do something fun today!

You know what I really like about your decorating skills??? Your ability to take something from one place and make it work perfectly in another. Just thinking about all the different ways you've used that awesome desk, and how you can move things from room to room without purchasing anything and it works great. Look at all the different careers you could have had with your wonderful talents!!! I want to come visit soon...I need a Mary fix!!!
love ya sis.

Mary said...
