A Quick Spot of Rug Repair

While in the US I picked up a lovely runner from Target, only to get it here to Korea and realize that I hadn’t noticed a bald spot on one corner (and there are no Targets here for me to run into and exchange it!) So I decided that I would need to repair the…

It’s All In The Details….

So I have shown bits and pieces of my front door decor, but I thought I would actually get out the good camera and take decent-ish pictures (I didn’t take the time to edit them and the hallway lighting is bad and windowless) We live in a high rise apartment with a central area on every…

Pinterest In Action

I’m having a giveaway here if you haven’t entered it yet! So a few months ago I was given a wreath by the Osan Officers’ Spouses’ Club with the intention that I decorate it, and return it to be auctioned off at a fundraiser. The wreath was just a plain grapevine wreath that for some…

Isaac’s Union Jack Dresser

I knew I wanted a Union Jack for Isaac’s dresser, so I set about Googling different images of union jack furniture, until this dresser from Daena at Bad Rabbit Vintage (the picture is a link to the image source if you click on it) popped up!    There was just something about this piece that…

Emmie’s New Dresser

Last Summer I posted about the turquoise dresser I refinished for Emmie, (now sold on craigslist because it would have taken up too much horizontal space in Emmie’s room in S. Korea) and then a few days ago I posted about another sold dresser from her room, the purple vanity, (which didn’t give enough storage on its…

Isaac’s Desk

I think I mentioned earlier that we ran into a snafu with the desk we wanted for Isaac’s room, the one I wanted was too small for Isaac to sit at for more then a little bit…… We didn’t realize that it was so low until we double checked with the store, and the front…
