My blog is focused on what I saw, heard about, or encountered during my day. I ZOOM IN on things I find particularly interesting, beautiful, or humorous. My interests overlap and mesh in the fields of interior design, rehab, photography, architecture, color, and anything painted. Throw in salvage, bargain hunting, recycling and that summarizes what you are likely to find on this page.
A little later I started a bathroom remodel in the room directly above the kitchen. Plumbing access required going through the kitchen ceiling so it seemed the perfect time to add recessed lighting. An island replaced the table and chairs. The wallpaper did not survive this transition and it was replace with a lighter color above the chair rail and a lovely poppy colored pattern on the lower section. New curtains completed the makeover.
