Grammy and "T" go to the Park.

Yes, I have turned into one of those women, that takes my camera everywhere and thinks my own baby is the cutest . . .

He has re-named himself "T" and will correct you if you get it wrong.

Making new friends was very interesting.

Look at that little face, how can I help it ?

"My" Top Ten Design Elements # 10

If you follow my blog, you should be able to guess the last element . . .

If I have said it once, I have said it a thousand times.




Don't do too much with any space. Try not to clutter it.

Simple spaces are restful for the body and the soul.

That does not mean it can't be interesting too. My 10 elements of Design are now all listed. I am waiting for yours . . .

"My" Top Ten Design Elements #9

Texture, primitive, "The Something to Talk About" has to included in my list of "Elements " for great design. Without these your room can easily become boring . You can have a nice room without them, but for a great room, try to include one of the three. It will make all the difference.

The huge stove hood in this kitchen gives it the "Something to Talk About". It makes the whole space. I bet everyone that comes in walks right over to it and starts to ask questions. These are the elements that make for great design.

Without the texture of the walls, that primitive coffee table and those fabulous French doors hiding the T.V. what would this room be . . .

No one that walks into this space will ever forget it.

This photo shows that it does not have to be a grand thing, sometimes leaving the worn , needs to be re-done . . . can be the very "Element" that makes the room dance . . .
