Falling Down on the Blog Job

Falling Down on the Blog Job

There’s been a lot of dead air on this blog lately, and I do apologize for that. It is hard to juggle a blog and a design practice and the needs of an eight-year old–especially when that eight-year old’s after school program has ended for the year. Of course it’s awesome to be granted this extra time with my dumplin’ girl, but I have less time to cram a full workday into. Obviously, as much as I enjoy writing this blog, it has to take a backseat to client work. Then all of a sudden, I look up and notice it’s been a week between posts. Crazy! 

Today’s another abbreviated day with a full agenda: creating a playroom spaceplan for Jennifer and Michael, and picking out furniture for Elaine and Roy’s 4,700 square foot empty house. I love days like this, decorating virtually from my pink power chair and catching glimpses of the longhorns grazing in the pasture behind our neighborhood.

How cool is it to see this beyond our backyard?!

Ahhh, summer.

So to keep things short and sweet, I’ll share a few noteworthy discoveries I’ve made recently via Facebook:

Indie Home

I’m digging all of the mid-century furniture this rehab artist sells. Pricing is great, too. Follow them to get first dibs on new pieces like these recent offerings:

Sway Vintage

Might have a new reason to veer off the interstate in Kyle the next time you’re heading south. I don’t know about you, but I’m always curious when I see a new vintage store open up!

Ashley Woodson

I’ve long drooled over Ashley Woodson’s minimalist/modern jewelry designs at Mockingbird Domestics:

…but lately I’ve been enjoying her photography as well. She recently posted the most beautiful pics of Barton Springs and the trail on behalf of I Love Texas and got me hooked. The love she has for what she’s shooting really comes through to the viewer–it’s such a treat to see that.

    WOW. You don’t often see someone with a sophisticated taste level at that age. Impressive!
