The Inspired Sewing Desk

It has been a LONG time since I’ve restored a piece of furniture.  As in a year and a half.  A lot played into that, but I am delighted to say, I’m back!  Now that we are faced with the heart of winter, I don’t know if I’ll tackle any more large pieces before things thaw out, but it sure …

Twinkle, Twinkle Little Fall

I think it goes without saying, that seasonal changes dictate a change in clothing.
