Prepping For Egg Arrival







There...in the right hand corner of the picture...balanced on the edge of the pot...





Furiously working on his/her nest for most of the day...





This industrious little couple have honored me with their choice of one of my boxwood pots as their new home. 





It's inspiring. I've definitely come down with a spring fever, and am motivated to making some home improvements of my own.





Sometimes you just have to run with it. You can't always wait for the painter. 
Like I said...spring fever...






















...getting excited...





Happy Easter

A Leg Up






Out for an internet stroll on a rainy Sunday, and I stumble upon this...





Successfully funded on KickStarter with $250,000+, on an $18,000 goal, the Floyd leg is a re-thought clamp of minimalist design allowing you to take any flat surface and create a table.

Inventors Kyle Hoff and Alex O'Dell have succeeded in creating something that is traditional and modern, and perfect for young and old, alike.






You're only limited by your imagination...
















At $189 for 16" coffee table, and $189 for 29" table legs, it's definitely budget friendly. The portability factor and ease of use can not be understated.







For more information, or to order, visit The Floyd Leg .

Working Girl






That's me on the left, Tess McGill...


(before she blossomed)





...insecure, and full of self doubt, working in a world full of perfect Katherine Parkers. At least, that's how I've been feeling.




The nasty weather we've been having hasn't helped...




Apparently I've been living in the Winter Battle Zone. 



I've had more than my fair share of "doubters" too...













A quick scroll through my phone pics today made me feel a bit better.


Progress:





This room is coming along. "Mrs." and I would like to convince "Mr." to let us cover the walls above the wainscoting in this...











Still searching for a bench and a chest...





My phone does not quite capture how warm this large dining space is. 





Adorable custom floorcloth for dog bowls: almost done...











This is not going to work...





Last delivery for unfinished nursery FINALLY arrived.




Kitchen installation begins...





"Moroccan" floor tiles for a young girl's bath ....








West Indies inspiration photos for a living room re-do...









Benjamin Moore's Black Forest Green on all downstairs doors....It will show as black, but with a little more depth...





Spring Target finds...









It's been a busy couple of weeks. I'm making progress. I can handle the "doubters".
Have a great weekend...
