From one extreme to the other

I work out of my house most of the time.  I have enjoyed this arrangement until just recently when I kept getting knocks on my door or my door bell rung.

 Don't get me wrong, I'm not anti-social or anything but when you work from home, you acquire a set discipline, just as if you are in a place of business and these constant interruptions, well, they interupt that flow.

One day, between client phone calls and the constant door bell interuptions, I had it.  In keeping with my current "de-cluttering" lifestyle, I decided to go to my craft closet and pull out some dollar store picture frames. I typed up my sentiment and framed it.  Found some black left over ribbon and hung up my picture frame.

Then I felt bad.......
So I created this one too.

So now I place them out depending on my mood or the day of the week.  Not bad, sitting next to my Dollar Store baskets and Daisy right?



Not your Mama's CHALK BOARD

Love stainless steel appliances and love that you can't typically put refrigerator magnets on a stainless steel refrigerator. BUT..... Came across this and couldn't help myself

I have a client who grows orchids. I visited with them today and look at this new beauty they are growing - a Blue Orchid. Isn't it just gorgeous and unexpected?
