A Starting Point

For the past several months I have loved reading blogs. It reminds me of taking a walk at dusk and loving it when someone hasn't closed their blinds quite yet. You get a tiny peek of their decorating style. When I was a young girl I wanted to be a decorator. I became a silk floral designer instead which is a cousin to a decorator, wouldn't you say?
It is my wish to share ideas with you on ways to make a house a home. My style is definitely eclectic, mixing old with new, oak with cherry, and even reds with orange. Since a big part of my life is my home based business, The Silk Thumb, I will be sharing pictures of my creations along with other interests in my life.
I'm excited to start this new venture and to make new blogging friends I hear all of you talk about!

I have a request! Could you do a tutorial post on how to tie a beautiful bow? That is one skill that I just can't master.
