Fashion Police – Going Green

One of the things that became very apparent when cleaning out my closet was that my wardrobe was seriously lacking some color.  It’s amazing  when you pare things down how clearly you can see the entire picture.  I was checking out a dress sale on Amazon and came across this dress for the amazing price of… Continue reading Fashion Police – Going Green

Homefront – What’s My Style

What is my style?  I was working with a client the other day when this question came up.  We were looking at fabric samples and narrowing down our selection for a chair to be re-upholstered.  We found one we both loved, the colors were perfect, the scale was just right, it was durable and would… Continue reading Homefront – What’s My Style

Just for Fun – Food, Friends & Football

Nothing brings people together like a championship sporting event, great food and the common goal of seeing your team through to victory.  In the beginning, it’s all about the food and drink, in this case my meat-free Buffalo wings, garlic hummus and a self-serve Bloody Mary bar.  But after the game starts, it gets all… Continue reading Just for Fun – Food, Friends & Football

Creative Outlet – Chalkboard Tray

Ok, I’m just going to come clean and make this admission: “My name is Lynne and I’m a chalkboard paint addict.”  I don’t know why it has the power over me that it does, but I just can’t get enough of it.  I’ve painted closet doors, made a chalkboard for my dining room, made labels… Continue reading Creative Outlet – Chalkboard Tray


Food for Thought – Are You Ready for Some Football?

I don’t know how many of you are football fans, but I know at least some of you will be cheering for your favorite team this weekend (go 49ers) and you can’t watch football without some classic football food.  I did, however, make a commitment to eat healthier this year, so I will be serving… Continue reading Food for Thought – Are You Ready for Some Football?


Fashion Police – Closet Clean Out Update

Last week I began my closet clean out adventure, spending 10 minutes a day purging, cleaning and sorting.  Now I can report to you, 5 garbage bags later (3 actual garbage, 1 donation, and 1 consignment), I am finished.  I did not take before pictures because it was just to horrific, but here are the… Continue reading Fashion Police – Closet Clean Out Update

Clutter Control Week 2 – Desk Armoire

Do you remember, before flat screens, how humongous TVs used to be?  We had one of those ridiculously large televisions and it was impossible to find an entertainment center big enough to hold it.  After searching and searching for something that would work and not finding anything, my husband decided to build it himself.  I found a… Continue reading Clutter Control Week 2 – Desk Armoire


Food for Thought Week 2 – Lemon Lavender Shortbread

  I was standing in my kitchen this morning drinking my first cup of coffee and looked out into the backyard to see what kind of day it was going to be.  The sun was just starting to come up, and even though the weather report I just watched said it was near freezing, it… Continue reading Food for Thought Week 2 – Lemon Lavender Shortbread

Homefront Week 1- Projects for 2013

So one of my goals this year is to get to all the projects around the house that I have been wanting to do for a very long time but just never got around to.   So far, I have had success sticking to my resolutions by jotting them down and holding myself accountable. It’s only… Continue reading Homefront Week 1- Projects for 2013
