Monster Buddy

Monster Buddy

Softly chirping birds on a spring morning, the crash of waves as they roll upon the shore, peals of laughter around a kitchen table, what do these have in common?  They are all melodies of life, more than just sounds, they evoke feeling and memories upon hearing.  To children born deaf or with severe hearing […]

Busy Break

Busy Break

It’s spring break here this week, and it is flying by!  I have finished a couple of projects though! The Winter’s Moon shawl, that I started last week.  Here is how it looked unblocked.   And blocked.  This shawl was so much fun to knit, I enjoyed every stitch!  Wonderful pattern, great yarn, Misti Alpaca […]

For the Birds

For the Birds

After several other questionable attempts with chalk paint, I feel like I’m finally getting the hang of it!  Although I’ll have to admit it took 3 tries before I was happy with the results!  Here’s where I started.   This was the second reincarnation of these chairs purchased by my Grandmother about 1963.  They had never […]

THEN and NOW

THEN and NOW

It has been a fun and busy couple of weeks here at The Double D blog!  My nephews and Sweetie Pie niece came for a summer visit, we have been winding up the swimming season with league championships, and I have been ticking the boxes off my to-do list, starting new projects right and left! […]

MORE Progress

MORE Progress

I’ve been awfully quiet lately, I know.  It’s because I’ve been really busy!  We have now installed ALL the cabinets, all the counters, the sink, all the hardware, most of the lighting and I’ve done about ½ the backsplash.  I really can’t complain about the installation at all.  We were worried about the sink, it is […]

It is spectacular, and a peaceful get-a-way just minutes from home, The Graystone Inn.  I’m taking lots of photos, and I promise I’ll do a full post next week!  We are having a great time, eating and […]

No Turning Back

No Turning Back

Yeah, I know, your house is a “wreck”.  It needs a good deep cleaning, some “picking up”, some organizing, right?  Well I’m about to make you feel a whole LOT better about your domain!  We ripped out our kitchen cabinets over the weekend, and even though we are only remodeling ONE room, here’s a little […]

Simple Luxury

Simple Luxury

I just love linen. It’s a wonderfully cool, textured fabric that has been used throughout history.  From surrounding the Tabernacle as Israel wandered through the desert, to utilitarian sacks to store grain and feeds, to specially tailored clothing and home goods today.  I love the texture, the durability and the elegance linen adds to any room!
