Mommy's Little Helper does WallPaper Removal too

Libby and I did more wallpaper striping last weekend,  I think there was a sale on wallpaper paste that year.  Libby patiently watched as I slowly striped layers and layers of wallpaper. She flopped in the wet sticky wallpaper with Mr. "Dirty Piggy" her favorite toy.

Open Sesame - The New Door

I picked up this door back in the spring for an excellent price marked down.  And the combination lock was purchase for my Birthday.  So finally the new door is in, the patio is on and I started to cosy up the Side Entrance with some raised Flower Beds.

Sail Boat rug updated this week

Momz Wool help design this SailBoat pattern for a client, the hooker of this rug was in to pickup some additional shades of white and beige for the sails, with the ocean water being done in a very unique aqua blue shade being complimented by an extremely light sky with a few soft clouds. I've heard this rug has been completed and I will update if this lady comes back to the shop for a visit.

Come play in My SandBox

Want something fun for your family and friends to do at your house. Or, do you have a business where clients are sitting and waiting for a few minutes,  build a Zen Garden, just use a small flat tray with some type of artificial sand , in it place shells and stones from the beach, or anything that you can find.  I slipped in an old penny, and a few pieces of shiny custom jewelery for mystery digging.  Quote: The philosophy of Zen Gardens is to bring health to people, to harmonize our life, and to return balance in nature. In addition, our philosophy strives to perpetuate the co-existence of human beings and creatures as part of the universe.

The kids in the house love to play in it, as different people come and go in the house you will find different patterns and people's collections in the sand with the stones piled into unique settings.First thing you have to do is set the rules for the kids, NO HAND in the sand or it will be all over the floor.
