Buried Treasure

One thing I have found to be true among designers and those who love design like myself have in common is the tendancy to buy things that we love wether we can use them or not. I have spring fever early and I've been going through all of my treasures trying to get organized. I've decided to let go of some things that I haven't been using. I have a lot of stuff that I have purchased because I just loved it and just knew I would have a place for it someday. That is the case with these wall plaques. I purchased them thinking I would use them over a pair of windows or a cased door opening or in an outdoor area. But I haven't. They are brand new and have never even been hung. I purchased them from Art & Artifact. They measure 12"H x 33"W. If you have a place for them and are interested in them leave a comment or send an e-mail. They are $40 each plus shipping.





I listed these on e-bay as well and I have sold one of them.

Earlier this week I posted pictures from an old real estate listing in University Park TX. The house I'm going to show you today is another home owned by the same individual.
I really love the use of green in this room. Something about it looks so fresh.



It's fun to see how she's used her furnishings in a different home and how her style has evolved.










I think this homeowner has done a great job decorating! The entire house looks fresh, young and inviting. Both of these homes sold very quickly!
I hope you've enjoyed touring these two homes.

When we lived in Texas I loved to browse the real estate listings for Highland Park and University Park. The houses there are adorable. One day I happened across this house and I instantly fell in love. I don't know for sure but I'm guessing the owner is an interior designer.
Freestanding tub. Check.

I really think this is beautiful. I'm not sure what it would be like to take a shower in there though. Kinda like a fish bowl.





Very cool kitchen. Love the chalkboard!





Not long after this house sold another house came on the market that had the exact same furnishings. I'll take you on a tour of that house later this week.

Front Entry

I thought I would post a couple pictures of our front entry. The gateleg table was a craiglist find. It works okay for now. I purchased the lamp at Mission Road antiques early last year. I think it needs a different shade. My favorite part is the runner. I scored it on ebay. It's William sonoma home. I love WS home!
It's been snowing here all morning. It's beautiful but I'm ready for spring! Have a great weekend!
