Some evenings you know what’s coming in the morning…


Ever get the feeling this will be you tomorrow morning?  I have worked all night on a presentation & just now realized I left my USB flash drive that I use to move my work in the computer at my other office… working out of 3 offices really sucks some days…

Emailed all my work to my other email address… I will find out if that works when I get there tomorrow… fingers crossed or I will need a double of the above because this will be me (below) at my desk !!!

Small Home Love…

With a total surface of just 34 square meters & consisting of one room plus kitchen, hallway & bathroom, I say this is an amazingly sweet apartment.

Martha has wonderful ideas…a new use for flower pots

Pretty pots can do more than hold flowers on an outdoor table. They can be used to protect dips and other dishes from party-crashing insects. Lift the pot by sticking one finger through the drain hole, or create a handle by cutting an 18-inch length of 1/4-inch cord and knotting the ends together. Thread the looped end through the drain hole in the flowerpot.

Martha has wonderful ideas…paint swatch sticks

Long after the last coats have dried on your new paint job, you can still have easy access to the color names and numbers for touch-ups.  I am always asking my clients for a sample of their paint colour, I would love it if anyone gave me a set of these to work with on their home design project….


Save the wooden stirrers you used to mix the paint, let them dry, and then write the names and numbers of the colors on the ends of the sticks. Use a length of twine to bundle the sticks by room.
