A little bit of nostalgia goes a long way!

Artful Living

There is an art to living and this great nostalgic photograph is of a place where we used to stay as children.  They  were the most amazing rustic cabins.  The woman who owned them is now gone but her spirit lives on in those old log cabins nestled in the cottonwoods.  Her name was Jo and she truly was an artist at living in the moment.  She could write the book on reusing old things.  Each cabin was furnished with old dishes, old furniture, bright colors of paint on the walls and plenty of books to read.  We felt such peace when we staying there and I will always remember her doing the washing and hanging out the sheets for the cabins.  Her spirit lives on in this photograph.  Do something today to bring a little nostalgia into your life.  Bring out some old photographs or a memento from childhood.   These are the things that bring a spirit of love and caring into our home.



I am an interior designer with over 27 years of experience in both residential and commercial design. I love the "do it yourself" person because I am a do it yourself person and I very much identify with making old new again. I believe that our spirits are rejuvinated and inspired when we relect who we are and what we believe in and are not afraid to face the harder parts of our lives. This blog will be dedicated to that purpose. I am also a survivor of domestic violence. I have an insatiable desire to grow and learn about myself in both spiritual and emotional ways. I love being a guest speaker for events in self-growth with the idea of hopefully inspiring others that past traumas can be over come and life can be terrific or at the very least good!
