Dad's creative touch



Somebody asked me how the photo wall was coming along. I say it is 87.954% done.

I feel the need to point out that some of my very most favorite items that I have added to the ledges have been art that my Dad did in college. My Dad constantly inspires me and even though he didn't use his art degree for his career, I still got to be the recipient of his creativity. I truly do prize every single piece of art that I have acquired from him.

P.S. - Thank goodness for affordable wall ledges @ IKEA.

This looks like something out of a magazine. Where on earth did you find the little mirror? I've seen bigger ones, but never one so small. I'm in love with it.

Your house is breathtaking. This is my second visit this evening. I just can't stop thinking about your beautiful kitchen. You have such fun and interesting pieces spread throughout your house. And, oh, what I wouldn't give for skylights in my home!
