I love the other work featured on Ammiel’s portfolio site, especially this art installation called, “Objects of my Confection“.
This antique family heirloom got a new lease on life over the weekend. A little sanding, some beautiful new paint, and some fancy Anthropologie knobs and voila… our entry way has a perky new place to stack our mail.
Tim would like me to note that I planned this DIY, but he did all the “real” work. :)
Every knows about my love of uppy-downy lines (have you seen my work?) -
- but I also love lines that go every which way creating beautiful faceted shapes.
There was a chart recently making the rounds on Facebook that was written by best-selling author MaryEllen Tribby about the qualities of successful people and what sets them apart from others. While I find the idea of success to be purely subjective, it was very interesting to see the qualities listed side by side. I don’t claim to be incredibly successful by any measure, but I will say that through the lessons I learn in life, I’ve experienced more success as I took these tenets to heart. I’m not able to say that I’m 100% on all these items. I strive to be better all the time, and I think that’s all we can hope for in life, really.
