I love the beautiful area where we live in western North Carolina.

Thanks to all of you who have left comments about my husband's injury. We are both thankful for your thoughts and prayers.
We were honestly expecting the healing process to move a little faster than it has. He is still in a lot of pain and having issues with feeling in his fingers and the healing of the wound. Considering he is a guitarist, it is devastating for him. He had two weeks off from playing our Wednesday night youth worship service, and I really thought he would be better and able to play by next Wednesday. It just doesn't look like there is any way he will be playing soon. He does have an appointment with his doctor tomorrow, so we are praying for good news.
Please continue to pray for his healing and recovery. We know God can work miracles, and Luis has more faith than *any* person I know.
As a reminder of his gift, here is a composition he wrote and recorded for his Dad's birthday last year. He is such a talented musician in so many ways and is so ready to be back doing what he does best.
All our love and many thanks:-)

I mentioned a couple weeks ago I was trying to finish up some projects that needed finishing, and the kitchen backsplash was one of them. I had found this mixed mosaic tile last year at Lowes that I LOVED, but of course there were only two 12 x 12 pieces, and no more anywhere. You can read about my dilemma HERE.

Like I said last week, the smallest projects always turn into something bigger and this has been no exception. It all started with taking out the corner bathtub in the master bath and replacing it with a closet. I was determined to build it around these antique doors from my grandparent's house.

While I realize most people are not decorating around an 1886 organ, it does provide a sort of "sideboard" space when closed, and most all of us can relate to that.

It's been a while since I set a Saint Patrick's Day table, so I decided to get out the Franciscan "Ivy" dinnerware, thinking the green would be just perfect for such an occasion.

It actually does look like Spring might be arriving soon here in the North Carolina mountains. It will be 72 today, then 23 tomorrow night with a chance of snow??!! Go figure. In the meantime, I have been warming things up in the living room with hot pink and the gold/brass that I showed in yesterday's post.

Everyone knows I love antiques, vintage, old and worn, and if an object has a family connection, I love it even more.

I have always loved sparkly chandeliers, but never had one until last year when I sold the fixture I had to buy the one now hanging over my grand piano. I have since added several more in the kitchen and living room.

The more I am drawn to the nitty gritty details of photography, the more I wanted to try out a Canon 5D Mark II, full frame camera. I am lucky enough to have a talented neighbor, Regina Holder, who just happens to be a professional photographer, and who was gracious enough to let me borrow her Canon 5D Mark II:-)

Everybody knows I have a big thing for vintage...everything --from art, furniture, books, silver and Christmas decor all the way to electronics and old calendars. My heart skipped a beat when I ran across this vintage radio while casually strolling through a local indoor flea market.
