Gifts for your Kitty Cats!

Our little furbabies need presents too!  And since we got our furbaby Pixel last year (December 21st!) we'll not only be celebrating Christmas (and my son's birthday) but also the anniversary of her joining our family. Pixel is a very well behaved kitty.  Actually...far better behaved then my boys!  If you don't count the gifts she's already unwrapped or the paper towel she's shredded.   If you're looking for gifts for your … [Read more...]

Canvas To Match Any Room

I recently did a mini makeover on our less than exciting bedroom. The fresh blooms and blossoms of spring always get my redecorating juices flowing..... And this time, I didn't fight the urge.    Our master bedroom has always been rather ho-hum, not too flashy or chic, or funky. Just beige. Very Beige. So this spring I took a leap....
