VIGNETTES AROUND THE HOUSE









All these pictures are various 'vignettes' in my house. You can see the different things that I collect and that speak to me in some way or another. A lot of you asked what my house looks like now, after seeing my ex-house. Well, it isn't anything like that house in Chicago. For one thing it is about 6 times smaller. My ex third floor work space is probably larger than my entire house now. But I do live on Coronado Island and I'd would much rather live here than in cold, gray Chicago. Had I been smart, when I first moved in, I would have painted the walls more to my liking. It just never occurred to me that I would still be living here 8 years later. I do have a nice backyard and a two car garage which Grazelda has never seen the inside of. It houses all my stuff that doesn't fit in my little house. And because I essentially live in a work space instead of working in my living space, there is no need to take pictures of the rooms. All you would see is fabric and sewing machines and all the other 'stuff' that goes along with making slipcovers and window treatments.

Oh, you have quite a few sand dollars there and urchins..., and other lovely things. I wish I had visited Coronado Island when I was in San Diego..., how could I not visit!?

First of all Tamerie, although I love seeing your fantastic work, I have enjoyed getting to know more about you, thanks for sharing!

Love all your unique and special treasures and Coronado Island is truly spectacular, I'd give up lots a space to live there myself!

HI Tamerie
You have me interested in learning more about Coronado Island. Sounds like living my dream but we always think the grass is greener on the other side don't we? Love your aqua blue collection in the 1st image. I've been reading the comments and have to ask 'What is a sand dollar?'

Your love of color really shows in your collection of roosters scattered among your vigniettes!! Thanks so much, you have really shared so much of yourself lately and I think you are awesome!!
I think I'd rather live in a lifeguard tower in Coronado Island than anywhere in Chicago!!

Tamerie, Thank you for sharing all your treasures. I love the shells! I would live in a tent if I could live on Coronado Island.

Tamerie, my dream is to live in a tiny cottage by the sea so I wouldn't miss a big house either. I LOVE all the vignettes around your home, particularly the turquoise/aqua greens and blues! :)

Thanks for sharing the cute corners of your home! I love the turquoise frame and accessories, the shells and the roosters! Pretty soon I will be there in person :)
