Midweek Roundup


Happy (belated) Wednesday, folks! As I am typing this post I am wrapped up in my new sherpa robe, a present from a dear friend. It is a chirpy, low-slung cloud-dusted day of 34 degrees. Brrr. My kettle has whistled thrice before the clock struck 10 (AM). The watery daylight (sans sunshine) filtering through my IKEA cream colored drapes sets the mood for a cozy-dozy kind of Thursday…er…belated Wednesday.


Yesterday I did my first real estate photo shoot for a terrific client of mine. They just finished out a duplex. Thus I am in a nesting state of mind. This week’s roundup is dedicated to the place we call home.

…from my www scavenging to your desktop (or phone).
