the diamond that started it all

the diamond that started it all


welcome to my mission is to give you a glimps of my life as a mother, wife, decorator, painter, and active woman. my inspiration comes from traveling, my education, and my family and friends. i have to admit upfront, however, that my "education" does not include a background in english, so please be patient with my grammar and spelling. i am, however, happy to share on this blog what i learn in my daily life from painting and decorating. here you will also find a real account of my struggles, my experiences, and my many reasons to rejoice. april, or the month of the diamond, is when my first and only daughter, mollie, was born. she is the reason i am a joyful mother, wife, and person today. i appreciate your time, and thank you in advance for your advice. perhaps one day you will be reading from my website but for now this homemade blog will do:-)
love, laura

 i have mixed emotions about the word "nesting." when i was pregnant i anticipated my nesting stage. when it never came i thought mollie would be forever stuck in my belly. the truth is, i constantly "nest." i am always cleaning, rearranging, and obviously i love decorating a space (any space, even 2 sq ft of my kitchen). i found this neat spot today on henderson in dallas-the wooden house. what a unique area in general.  on henderson you will also find a collection of stores carrying local vendors, consigned items, and rare antiques (consignment heaven, again &again, the gypsy wagon). i got some new pieces at the wooden house that i thought would make my life more orderly-one for my jewelry collection, one for the kitchen to organize my (small) wine collection, and another for the dining room to better display my china.  this place just opened and i highly recommend it.  the owner was very friendly and if you need furniture to de-clutter your life you will find what you need...and more.

on a totally different note, ash and i visited a couple of new finds on lovers lane a few weeks ago that are worth noting. area 25 and arteriors too.

jewelry box for me...or a box to organize whatever you need in your life.  one question-it's simply drawers, no dividers, how do i seperate the individual pieces of jewelry?  i'm sure container store can help me out. our wine is easily accessable and perfectly stored:-)

do not ask me why a sense of organization brings me so much relief but i think my sleep tonight will be more peaceful because of this new piece of furniture.
