Silver Leaf

I am so excited to share my latest project. It has been on my plate for a while and after clearing the decks and clearing out a lot of the judgement that I had going on in my head, I went for it!!

I am re-doing the bedroom, painting the walls a soft gray,making a new quilt for the bed and sewing window coverings. I also needed a new nightstand. I have been stalking all of the decorating blogs and found the most gorgeous silver leafed dresser.

So here is my take on the silver leaf night table.

One of the places that I got a lot of inspiration was this post at the Little Green Notebook. I love this blog, you should check it out!

I will post more pictures when I get the room pulled together.

Clearing the decks!

I'm clearing the decks and making way for new projects, new adventures, and new dreams. My mind has been whirling with new ideas and my list of things to do is growing and growing. Maybe it was the fact that we have been inside so much that I have been looking at the house and how many things need to be cleaned up, repainted, finished, you name it!

Look out spring....I'm coming.

So I have this list of projects that I would love to do and when I have the time to do them I've noticed that I keep putting up road blocks between me and the projects. I will decide that before I can sew I need to make sure that the whole house is vacuumed or that some other chore is accomplished. I know that I have to do my job (i.e., housework, shopping etc.) but why do I keep withholding the pleasure of creating something new or completing a project.

So I've decided in my clearing of the decks, to clear out some (hopefully all) of the judgement that tells me to wait and do (insert chore here) before doing something fun and exciting and creative.

Wish me luck!
