Welcome – I’m Kristine and I am glad you are here! This blog is my platform for sharing my thoughts and ideas about organizing, decorating, and creating a home that is a peaceful haven -warm, inviting, comfortable. My hope is that you find some ideas, inspiration, or just enough of a new perspective to trigger your own imagination and creativity.
….more about me …..
Seasons are important to me, and I love change in my surroundings. I rotate my home 4 times per year. I decorate for Fall/Harvest (which covers both Halloween and Thanksgiving), Christmas, early Winter (which starts just after Christmas), and Spring/Summer (because in Southern California, they are essentially the same).
My intention here is to share my thoughts and ideas about the things I love to do and that are important to me: home decorating by season; home care cleaning and maintenance; creating organization systems that are productive and useful. I enjoy painting (furniture & walls!), sewing and cooking. Whatever I spend my time on must either serve a purpose or contribute to the overall beauty, style, and comfort of my home.
I live in Southern California with my husband, Sailor, and our three cats. We live in a red shutter cottage that is cozy and inviting. By day I work for a marketing company. I love rainy days, Open Houses, Girl Scout do-si-do cookies, and a good book. I play Bridge twice a month, try to exercise as much as I can, and make a mean chicken tortilla soup.
