So I’ll take that closet case and make it fan-frickin-tastic! hmmm…. where to start, cuz it doesn’t look like this folks! (seriously who has this?)   It is actually pretty modest, but this helps keep […]

This week I found an Inukshuk carving that would be a great accessory for anyone’s bookshelf.  Soapstone carvings by Inuit artists are usually very expensive. But this one, from a little known artist, is totally reasonable. Check it! (Pic is the link as usual)

Variations of Eclectic

I have found that many folks appreciate eclectic style decor but once we start talking about it I realize that we have very different ideas of what it means..Indeed, there is a broad meaning to the term, and similarly a great deal of styles that are genuinely eclectic.  So why not take some time and […]

It’s an example of a piece that is ready to go to its forever home with no work required.  For sale now […]
