Decor: Cabin In the Woods

I often speak of downsizing – which I’ve done and really will never go back to owning stuff and more stuff to fill a home. I prefer a small space, a loft or a studio filled with the simplest of decors and a handful of memorable collectables – that’s all I need to feel content. […]

Lifestyle: Figuring Out If You Are Happy

Feeling philosophical lately – so please bear with me. In the American Declaration of Independence, Thomas Jefferson incorporated a statement borrowed from Locke’s pursuit of happiness and made it people”s inalienable right: Life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.  This is what the American dream is based upon and those entering this great land do […]

Hello There, Would You Like Some Cake?

I am back, after a week off to celebrate, reflect and contemplate how the rest of the year should pan out – taking into consideration of course the minor glitches, and/or set backs, I am thinking it will hopefully stay on course and if not, I know exactly where to escape for a few days […]

Someone Asked Why The Look on My Face…

Decor: Paris + Apartment = My Happy Place

Let’s start the week off slow shall we?  I mean yesterday, being Mother’s day here in the US was a very busy day, full of happy visits with Mums, and the hustle and bustle of flower deliveries across the country, boxes of chocolate, or perhaps a gift card, and then there were FaceTime calls, I […]
