We just spent the most wonderful vacation with our dear friends in the picture-perfect town of Wilmette, IL (a north shore Chicago suburb). Most of the homes in the area were built in the Arts & Crafts style of the 1920's, and the cobblestone streets are lined with enormous mature trees. When I looked at the houses in that incredible neighborhood, the first word that came to mind was “character.” [...]

Hi there! I hope you all had a great Fourth of July!  At the start of each month I like to talk about my project plans for that month.  It helps keep me organized, and gives a little preview of what's to come.

It’s Friday – yippee!!  We just got back from a week in California.  So much fun seeing our friends and family! It still feels like home there…sigh.
