I Am A WHITE Paint Lovin’ TROLLOP- Just sayin’

I don’t know how it happened.

I became a WHITE paint and home decor trollop of sorts.

A definite trollop.

A lover of WHITE.

White madness.

WHITE everything.

A whirlwind of WHITE BLISS-FUL-NESS.

Our living room: driftwood Balinese lighting and twig curtain rods

I Was BORN In a BARN at Christmas

Ok, I made that part up.  If you asked my parents, they would have told you that my dinner manners qualified me for living in a barn status.

 So, technically, I could have been born in a barn.

A Unique Outdoor Landscape- A pool built in an old Stone Barn Foundation.

I am a designer.

Nothing boring ever happens.  Ever.

Well, one exception: Excel spread sheets.  B*O*R*I*N*G

However, in design, so many things are EXCITING !!!

I like to jump outside the box a little.

I am a white cotton ~ white loving ~ natural fiber hussy

It is official.  I am an all cotton, white linens lovin’, funky outhouse crazed – hussy.  A natural fibers hussy is my new official title.  I think I will have it printed on my biz cards.  Jokes, Mom, jokes.  Join me-everyone- in my fight against nasty, uncomfortable, polyester sheets.  That P word is a bad word in my sleeping bliss.  Very bad word.   Never thought I would say (aka ADMIT) that I was such a sheet freak.

Would I give up my first-born child for nice quality sheets and pillowcases ???   Well, maybe not, but I would give the thought some pause.  I would contemplate it.  But only for a moment.  Shelby will be so happy to hear that.  The poor girl has suffered all these years when I say : “here- take my first-born child”.  Even.  Steven.  Fair trade.  Good thing Shelby has a sense of humour.   Shelbella, I LOVE YOU more than SHEETS.  Snicker snicker.  But I still love WHITE too.

Home Sweet Home

Well, the time has come. We will make our journey onward and upward to HOME SWEET HOME ~ Canada. Someone better hide the maple syrup, s’mores, crispy crunch chocolate bars, homemade pie, crispy bacon, and ketchup potato chips. Now, as I think about weaning myself off of the french croissants, cafe creme, french red wine and baguettes….I start to think of food again. Why don’t I dream of green apples and grapefruit ? Why can’t I dream in a fat free version ?

So, as a home sweet home refresher, I thought I would post some pics to get myself all jazzed about feeling like a Canuck again…..
