Over the last few months I have become increasingly involved at Stateline Auctions; our local auction house in Canaan, CT. I have been helping out a lot recently which has made me become more interested in primitive antiques and artwork. I thought I would share a few photos of this early salt box painting and a few other pieces I enjoyed.

Have you ever gone into a store and immediately spotted a blouse you had to have? Did you then say to yourself, I better shop around first and look at my other options? We all have, it's just learning to trust your gut feeling, your first feeling. It's called choosing intuitively. Sometimes it comes naturally, and other times we fight our intuition and end up not listening to it, making the wrong choice.

Last night Pinterest roped me into the dark and held me hostage for what seemed like an eternity. I stayed on their website clicking deeper and deeper into a designers paradise, stumbling upon breathtaking photographs one after the other. Pinterest is the devil--it's nothing but pure torture showing the common folk what we don't have. OK maybe that statement was a little dramatic...because there are plenty of crafting and DIY tutorials on there as well, but that stuff doesn't matter to me... I want to see the country estates, the rolling, lush gardens and the simply perfect I do's.

It comes with no surprise that I am terrible with technology. Every thing I touch: breaks. Most of you have heard that I have been having some computing issues. After paying to have my laptop fixed; it teased me for exactly two weeks and was working better than when I purchased it new in 2010. Then it died: indefinitely.

I have been thinking a lot recently about my business and my blog. What I have concluded is that I will be redirecting my energy into more making this site more of a "lifestyle" blog-- encompassing all things home & living. I know a lot of people follow the site for the furniture--which there will still be plenty of-- but my intuition is really poking at me to broaden my horizons.

We have our own reasons for renting at the moment; some are good some are not so ideal...but at the end of the day our house feels like home. For a long time I looked at renting as a negative things. Then something dawned on me and I realized, I'm 23, the economy stinks and my husband is from Brazil....(which is a whole separate paperwork issue....) but I still feel like there is a negative connotation to being a renter and I want to squash that now. Its time to make rental or non rental feel like home.
