Things that I love!

This unique piece of art made by WildSliceDesigns fits perfectly in my space.  The reclaimed wood sculpture fits with my desire for recycling and  repurposing.  I love bringing nature into the room this way and enjoyed communicating directly with the artists, Ben and Nicole.

Made from recycled wood.

I have had my eye on this light for months.  It was in the Wellesley Antique Lighting shop window but the shop was always closed when I walked by.  Finally the stars align and I meet the artist, Jon, who has a treasure trove of antique fixtures and repurposes them magically giving them a new life.

Audrey’s story at FreshRestorations is truly inspirational.  She used reclaimed wood to create my one-of-a-kind desktop.

Stikwood!  SaraH highly recommended an accent wall.  When she suggested Stikwood, I thought to myself, “Oh, man.  I am so not a DIY kind of person.”  Well the makers of Stikwood, which is recycled wood with three strips of adhesive, sooooo had me in mind when they designed it.  I did my entire wall in 5 hours.  Which is probably 2 hours too long because of my neurotic nature trying to get the right pattern.  At the end of the day, the result is stunning.  Highly recommend you give it a try.

I brought a little nature inside, adding bark and branches I picked up on a hike in Maine.  Love this piece.

In my eternal pursuit for mala beads I found this young woman that courageously left the corporate world to share her genius.  This is just one of her mala’s hanging from the branches in the photo above.  You can find more of her work at BloomingLotus.  Tell her I sent you!
