Remember this one?

Oh, how I loved this artist's home in Austin from 
Cottage Living.  So unique and so much personality.

See those red and white things on the far right of
the picture?  She is where she saved the fortunes out
of cookies and used red thumbtacks.  Art can be anything, can't it?

I wish I had the rest of her home.

If any of you remember this artist's name, please let me know!

Also...my online decorating bunch:

My other email is down.

Have a great weekend....it is finally less than 190 degrees here!



  1. that gal eats a lot of chinese!

    I agree. I have some crazy stuff in my house that I call art. my family gives me such grief about it. but that's what makes a home so unique, isn't it? I love to be in a home that someone has personalized like that!

  2. Some people do collect those fortunes, and some people collect matches, and some wine corks, etc., but alas I don't think I collect anything but memories. ~Tina~

  3. I think it's so wonderful to collect things .... unfortunately, I don't collect anything. Need to start thinking about starting a collection.


  4. You said the magic words for me... Austin! I love it there. =) Her dining space is so charming.
