Ice and snow in the mountains

Like most of the country, we have had some crazy weather in western North Carolina this winter. Not much snow but dangerously low temps below zero and frozen water pipes.

Making slipcovers and playing...

Because I just cannot leave anything alone, I decided the lace slipcovers I made last year were too white, so I made four more out of drop cloth fabric.

Making pillows and feathers everywhere...

I dove right into pillow making last week. Literally. I'm still cleaning up feathers.

New projects, a french chair and other pretty finds

I am not switching over to French style, it's just that I keep running into these ridiculous deals.

My obsession...

My first trip to Incirlik Air Base, Turkey on temporary duty, I could not for the life of me understand the excitement about "going rug shopping."

My favorite place for inspiration...

After all the Christmas decor is taken down, things look kind of sparse. That really gives me a blank slate to change things up a much as I can here.

My first stop for inspiration online is The Old Painted Cottage. Not only do I *love* Jennifer's style, her Cottage of the Month series is something I look forward to the first of every month.

Using old doors, windows and layering...

One of my favorite things to do is use doors and windows from the "old" house in my decor.

My dream house...

What does your dream house look like?
Perhaps a French-style chateau?
