Some of you know that I was in Chicago for some days and I found a great source for used art........ they liquidate hotel furniture. I don't want the art - I just want the multiple frames - it was perfect!!

And had to hit Ikea on the way home

Well, the natives are getting restless as I have been MIA. It is that wonderful time of the year - banks, appraisers, taxes, etc, etc. I have also been spending many hours preparing my soon-to-open Etsy shops. I need to get working so I can adorn St. Mary's in a manner to which she plans on becoming accustomed.

I am building the vanity in the guest bath and though I know conventional wisdom says "NO THEMED ROOMS" I'm doing a bit of that anyway.......... as many of you know - I lived part-time on the island of Anguilla - it's in my blood.

Besides - it's not like this is a normal home anyway !


Stay tuned


  1. Bathrooms are the best to do as a theme! You can do subtle themes. I did my bathroom with a cabin theme. I'll post the pics on my blog.

  2. Ahhh.... Miss Mary now we know where you have been! LOL... xoxo

  3. You are certainly a busy lady! 3 Blogs. Opening new stores. Restoring a church. Sleep? You made an absolute score with those frames.

  4. Ooooh I'm getting excited...is that a sink with the fish in it??

    Welcome home. Keep the taxman happy!

  5. Wow cannot wait to see the finished product.

    Thanks for stopping by at my blog and leaving the lovely comments.

    The Church is going to look fabulous,I love the tassels.

    I love the new frames- that was a great find!
    The bowl with the koi is beautiful!! Can not believe you are building the vanity... you GO girl!! I could use you at the house for some finish carpentry!!
    You are so busy with all your projects! I can't wait to see your Etsy shop open! Do you do any gardening hats?
    Happy Weekend! j.

  7. I love that it's not a normal home! And hey, I thought there was a pic of you on my blogroll for this post. What happened to it? Put it back! :^)


This is a huge project - your interest in St. Marys keeps me energized and I love hearing from you
