Saylor Street Cottage hit the market on Friday April 14th and we received 3 offers the next day.  We accepted an offer and today was the home inspection.  I'm a little nervous about it because we have an older home with older appliances.  I didn't replace t...

Knobs and Other Hardware
Our kitchen cabinets never had any knobs on them and we were ok with it.  We decided to add some stain to the cabinets and I thought that some hardware would add additional character.  I went with venetian bronze and I like that they are on the darker black...

Beauty Everywhere!
I stated in my previous post that I wanted to focus on beauty throughout November and heading to Colorado this weekend was the perfect way to find true beauty. My daughter and I went up to the Rocky Mountain National Forest to do some hiking.  We packed wat...

Creative Energy - Finding Beauty in an ugly world
I hate starting out on a negative note but living in a suburb of Chicago means you don't have to look too far to find the face of evil.  The other day a nine year old boy was gunned down in Chicago.  He was playing basketball and died with his ball right ne...
