• How To Tell A Story Through Decorating

    You know,There are many ways to approach decorating but something that has helped me create a cohesive feel in my home is to tell a story. I want to tell a story that is unique to my family. I know people who decorate to tell the a story of their family’s beliefs. Their walls are covered with scriptures or phrases that reiterate their ethos. Okay, I do a little of that too. Others enjoy decorating with things that point to activities they love. For example,  we have many fond memories spent at a lake house located in North Georgia that’s been in the family since the 1970’s. It was decorated…

  • Are You Ever Too Old To Start Something New?

    The little girl walked up the sidewalk to her Grandparents house. She didn’t get to see them very often. Usually, she just watched their game shows with them and sometimes they played cards. But this visit was going to be different. The door opened to smiling faces. Hugs were exchanged and after a few moments her grandparents excitedly invited her to see what they had been up to lately. They rounded the corner. The one that had a curio cabinet that housed their collection of beautiful china teacups and saucers collected from their worldwide travels.
