D A Y 15: French Kitchen Decor

Super busy day ending for me and my husband as he completes the October 15 deadline for clients who filed income tax extensions.  Today comprised of breakfast at El Ranchero, some work at home, styling a kitchen for a client, crock pot spaghetti and time with my sweet Abigail.  I am normally a real night owl but I think I will be getting to bed early tonight.  Tomorrow we look forward to a retreat in Galveston.

 Here are some photos of today's French Kitchen Styling:

Good Night All!

D A Y 14: Sarah's House One

As Ladies Director at the Church Triumphant, I was contacted by the director of Sarah's House of Pasadena.  They were hosting an appreciation luncheon and I was invited.  We had recently hosted a Table in the Wilderness event for our Heartstrings Ladies Ministry and contacted Sarah's House to be recipients along with others.

At this luncheon, we were exposed to the needs and ministry for homeless women.  They were moving into a new facility and we were able to tour.  Once seeing a once elderly home, I was impressed to bring my interior design talents to help bring a little cheer.

Thanks to others who caught the vision, we were able to raise funds to help facilitate our desire to help this worthy cause.

I decided to break up the dollars into several vignettes.  Here is the first one.  It is a simple seating area but brings in a lot of life and cheer to a very plain setting.

Here you are seeing what was once a drab heavy plastic type canvas stretched over a great frame construction.  This print will make more sense when you see the rest of purchased items.  We bought a little over 2 yards which made a perfect fit for this frame.  We stapled it tight and it made a great back drop for this seating area.

Chairs are from Marshalls found for $89. each.  The fabric from Hobby Lobby in the Duck Cloth section.  The table a find at Ross for 19.99 and the plant from Marshalls for 29.99.

I am looking so forward to bringing in the next area's decor.  Stay posted for Sarah's House Two.
