Stacys Art Studio gets ready for winter

I love the seasons, their changes make me happy. The trees, plants, sky, temperatures and colors change from season to season. I tend to change along with it, inside my house I change out comforters, pillows and curtains. Once I’ve settled on the color of my walls, I try to keep them a neutral color, because I like change so much that I’ve tried to confine those to pillows and fabrics. Things that are easy to change, unlike wall colors … Continue reading “Stacys Art Studio gets ready for winter”

Mornings with Molly…love

Love is a beautiful thing. Love can grow immeasurably, love can give you the strength to endure great pain, and love will help you do things you never thought you would, or could do. Love will keep you from giving up, when things are too hard to face. Recently, our sweet boyo started having a new after affect condition. If you’ve read my blog, you’ll know these are conditions that appear later in life from treatment for  childhood Leukemia. I … Continue reading “Mornings with Molly…love”

A Secret Garden Stage Two

This was the second stage of the secret garden. I thought I’d share a few pictures of this part of the process. I put in some fake grass just to brighten it a bit. I laid in a row of bricks around the edges and then thought that perhaps moss might grow along the little beds….we’ll see…. No furniture as of yet, except for the little foot stool, and the shelf unit that used to be in our old camper, … Continue reading “A Secret Garden Stage Two”

My Studio puts on Her Summer Attire

As I sit at my little desk, writing this post, I’m enjoying watching the rain fall steadily on my mostly finished backyard. When you live in a semi arid desert, rain is highly valued. We tend to have some severe droughts and have been heading into a bad one. However, the summer monsoon rains will sometimes save us. I hope they will be many and strong this year. We already have a major wildfire burning called the Ute fire. It’s … Continue reading “My Studio puts on Her Summer Attire”

A Secret Garden

  Everyone should have a secret garden. Whether it’s a courtyard, patio or window ledge, secret gardens bring joy to your heart. I remember my first secret garden, it was a hidden place among the woods of Wisconsin when I was a little girl. I didn’t realize that it was a secret garden but I knew it was special, so I kept it all to myself, my cat and my books. When my family couldn’t find me, you can be … Continue reading “A Secret Garden”

Little Things

It’s the little things that always make the biggest impact in life and in decorating! As I’ve shared before, I love using painting drop cloths for curtains, and various other things. Lately, I made an addition to the drop cloth curtains in our bedroom. It was a small thing, but made a huge difference. I thought I’d share a few pictures. A few years ago I ran across two beautiful sheer curtain panels in my local second hand store. I … Continue reading “Little Things”

Mornings with Molly-Joy

Joy is my favorite! Yesterday we found out that there’s nothing new wrong with the kiddo’s heart. Relief, relief is even better than joy. I’m not sure that I’ve ever written about the complication, that he’s had with his heart over the last 13 years. It’s something that we choose not to think about, since there’s nothing that can be done about it. About 13 years ago, during a regular checkup they found a clot that is attached to the … Continue reading “Mornings with Molly-Joy”

Master Bedroom Project Complete!

I’m so excited to be able to say that the master bedroom project is complete! I hope you enjoy the finished project. I’ll try to explain how I put everything together, but if you have any questions be sure to post it in the comment section.  I’ll be happy to answer! This was the beginning. It’s a perfectly lovely bedroom, but I had big plans! I started with my antique door headboard from our old place. I used them as … Continue reading “Master Bedroom Project Complete!”

Mornings with Molly – Gratitude Again

Oh, my sweet Molly’s nose and her eyes. It’s amazing how a dog knows there’s something to be concerned about. What a beautiful gift we were given in the form of a dog.  I’m grateful to have her to comfort me. It’s been awhile since I’ve written a Mornings with Molly piece. I haven’t been sure of what I wanted to say, so I’ve waited. The last few months I’ve been posting on my facebook and Instagram accounts, that there … Continue reading “Mornings with Molly – Gratitude Again”

The Studio is Finished! Well….

The studio is finished! Well….It might not ever be completely finished! I’m always rearranging and adjusting. Let’s say that, for now it’s finished! For a certainty, there’s always more room for books! When we began the search for the right house for our family, I really didn’t expect to find one that also had the perfect spot for my studio. I figured that I would either find a corner somewhere or put a studio shed in the backyard at some … Continue reading “The Studio is Finished! Well….”
