Peeking In

I feel like this bear. I love looking at everyone's blogs. Every blog has a different personality, reflecting the personality of its' owner. I love how people show me the things they love, whether it's in their homes, in a magazine or elsewhere. I especially love before and afters of little projects or huge home renovations and redecorations. Thank you for letting me in.

Since everyone has been so kind to let me into their home, I will let you into mine. Next week I will start posting some "befores and durings", and some possible "afters". I don't know if I really will ever have an "after", as I am always redecorating. It feels good knowing that I am in company with so many others out there!
I took this photo as my mother in law was driving the car. She stopped in the middle of the road so I could quickly jump out and take a snapshot. This piece is called "I See What You Mean" by artist Lawrence Argent. It is a 40 foot, 10,000 pound bear peering into the Colorado Convention Center. It is so whimsical. I love it.

HILARIOUS! I've jumped out of the car many a times! Perhaps you found me via Cote de Texas or Olive Rue. One never knows. Thank you so much for stopping by!
