Let's rewind


back to the day I got the call about my dad's stroke.

I was home that day,
doing one of my favorite things:


I am hopelessly compelled
to recover pillows, move furniture and add accessories to my home.



add green to my red living room.

Not so hard, really. Just your basic Complimentary Color Scheme


That day, two weeks ago,
I was whipping up pillows, making floral arrangements
and pulling out all of my pewter accents
to bring summer inside my home.

so, without further adieu,

I give you

Summer Living Room 2010


green table on loan from Chrissy,
star shaped pewter dish: gift from my dear sis, Jenny, who knows my penchant for stars.

oh, and if I am going to be completely honest,
the picture of me hand stitching is a total set up.
Chrissy did all my hand stitching . . . bless her heart.

I LOVE what you've done with your living room! The green is gorgeous...I'm so into green these days...in my home, wearing green...there's something so beautiful and calming about this color. How fun to see the stars I gave you--they look great with your other accents...you have such a gift.

We have the EXACT SAME NEUROSES. Always redecorating. Always seeing things we like and wanting to copy them. It's great :-)

Do you think it's the Stayner in us? I love redecorating! In fact I use it many times to motivate me to clean...

Loved what you did. I'm in the redecorating mood again, but I don't know what to do. I need help! Wish you were here to inspire me.

I now reside in San Antonio, Texas. The most important thing to me is my family; I have invested the most in them and it has paid great dividends.
