Sometimes we come across an image and it doesn’t go away. This is one of them:
just so dreamy!!!
We knew this special little girl needed some stars when she looks up at night….(still not quite done with the room below, but progress
Whenever we need something special and beautiful, we bring Kate Dukes into the mix. She is so crazy talented.
She made her own stencil for the ceiling (out of poster board!!)
And she has patience that I think we don’t have (and she was on a ladder 8 months pregnant knocking this ceiling out!)
I just think it is so sweet…..
We are fond of stencils (in metallic paint, it seems). She did the one below–a leopard spot stencil:

And champagne paisley in our laundry room….

And, I’m going to put it out there—we are putting our home on the market (again). We are meeting with the realtor today. What can I say? We just have so many plans about our yard and Chris’ woodshop/ Airstream barn. We have done all the paperwork with zoning at the city and received approval to begin on this outbuilding. We even have the stakes in our backyard. Just every single fiber in my being is saying that we belong elsewhere, and Chris has large doubts, too. We feel a peace when we think about moving, and you can’t deny that. So, if you are interested in a lovely home in Roswell, Georgia email me
We at least will be here until August 6th, because the married couple & photographers Gridley & Graves will be here to shoot for a new magazine called American Dream Cottages. Very excited.
Well, we are lots of things around here, but never bored. When you truly “let go and let God” then you just got to hang on. You never know where He will take you.
Oh, but the local producer did pitch a show about us and our contractor in New York on July 2nd. It’s a no-go.
Well, this post is more about stencils, isn’t it?
I hope the rest of your weekend is more restful than mine….
