A Very Woolly Update

The living wall in our home studio is over 9′ wide, and it feels so much a part of the room, that we often don’t even think about it.

For the last week, our life has mostly revolved around one thing: Baseboards. You know I love them so! (HA.) Now that the bedroom is almost checked off the trim-list, there are just 3 rooms left in the whole house that are still in need, but who’s counting? (Ha-HA!) It’s funny the things you learn about yourself as you work on a fixerKEEP READING >
