Part 1: I love the morning

I am a morning person. I love to get up early, 5:00 is best, with a steaming mug of coffee ( bold roast only please, no wishy washy blend for me), and look through my favorite magazines and design books. My mind becomes filled with ideas and inspiration, so much so that I am forced to take pen to paper lest I forget in the business of the day. And forget I do, given my 54 years.

You may think the blog description I have in my title is just a a quote I like, but you would be wrong. It is a quote that is very true about my mornings. The great thing is, (some might say scary), I believe I can do all the things I dream of. I am not afraid to try anything, furniture building, painting, framing, floral design, sewing. 

So ladies of the blogging world grab your paint brushes, saws, tape measures and sewing machines and try your hand at whatever inspires you.

In this case it is a paintbrush, as I set about repainting my walls.

 This is my nest, command central, where I sit and peruse my periodicals. The photo is blurry you say? It represents how I see the world before my first cup of coffee.

My current favorite, Alessandra Branca's new book. 
She is fearless with color but still sophisticated and beautiful.
